November News from Threads Galore
Dear Quilting Friends,There has been a whirlwind of activity here the last few weeks ~ guests at The Quilt Inn, Autumn Splendor Shop Hop, Columbus Weekend and Fall Quilt Camps. Whew! We enjoyed visiting with you and appreciate your business. NOVEMBER HOURSTuesday thru Saturday 10AM ~ 4PMCLOSED on Thanksgiving Day, November 27thAUTUMN SPLENDOR SHOP HOPWarm thanks to those that participated in our Autumn Splendor Shop Hop. The foliage could not have been any better. Many of our hoppers made the trek up Quill Hill for the 360 degree view of our lakes and mountains. Congratulations to the six prize winners ~ each winner received $150.00 in gift certificates from participating shops. FALL QUILT CAMPSA special thank you to Jackie Kunkel for her sensational instruction at our Fall Quilt Camp weekend #1! Many of the campers left with projects completed and patterns/fabrics for future projects. And best of all......Jackie will be back with us for Fall Quilt Camp 2016!Dan Perkins, Certified Instructor for Studio 180 Design, was our instructor for weekend #2. Nineteen campers enjoyed making either Studio 180 Design’s pattern “Bands of Glory” or “Southern Hospitality”. The class was split almost evenly and excellent results were had by all. As is always the case in a class environment, the variety of the participants’ interpretations of the two patterns made seeing the progress they made that much more exciting. Many doing the “Southern Hospitality” pattern completed the entire project with, I believe, all getting the center section complete. Those working on “Bands of Glory” achieved success in getting many of their banded Lemoyne star blocks completed. Several completed the chain blocks and some even had rows together before the weekend was over.
