Michelle and Dan will be happy to assist you in completing your project! We ARE accepting registrations!
QUILT CAMP DEPOSITS ~ Why do we ask for them? Quilt Camp deposits represent a commitment from you that you plan to attend the event. Without the deposit we would have no idea how many are interested and whether the event is even possible. The deposit also gives us the revenue for brochures, advertising, our deposit on the venue and the instructor ~ all of which we loose if the event doesn’t receive enough interest and we are forced to cancel and return your deposit. So in everyone’s best interest sign up as soon as you can and then we can all plan on having a wonderful time.
WHAT’S NEW From Atkinson Designs ~ Marching Bands. Bands of color parade across this dynamic quilt. If you like your colors marching in formation, the cover quilt is for you. Do you march to the beat of a different drum? Why not mix things up and make the scrappy version shown on the back.
Hoffman Fabrics ~ We have re-stocked and added to our Batik 885 Dot collection. We love how these fabrics play well with others!
Red Rooster Fabrics ~ several bolts of “On The Web” by Jackie Paton.
More coming soon from Marcus Brothers, Moda, Wilmington & Windham.
