September & October 2017 News


We hope you all had a great summer.  We know the wild fires dampened some of your plans for camping and travelling but there’s always next year and you have a home and are safe and that’s all that really matters at the end of the day.  We’ve worked in conjunction with the Prince George Quilters Guild and Poppins in Penticton to make and distribute hundreds and hundreds of pillowcases to the evacuees when they were staying in Prince George.  It is always heartwarming to see how many people step up to help make someone’s day brighter.  


We have hundreds of new fabrics for your shopping pleasure.  As usual, we try to accommodate everyone’s tastes.  We appreciate your continued support in helping keep our shop as great as it is.  We see a lot of the same visitors in the summer and they love it here and we love to hear it!


Toward the end of October, Bernina is launching a new 5 series machine.  We’re very excited about that.  It will have a 1-inch bigger throat than the current 5 series and it will have the differential feed and jumbo bobbin!  We always wonder what they can do to make a perfect machine even better and then they come up with this.  I know you’ll be impressed.


For most of our classes, we will continue to collect gift cards for Superstore.  These are used to help those that need a hand up now and again.  Also, we support people for the Christmas holiday by way of providing gifts and food.  


We will be closed Monday, October 9th for the Thanksgiving weekend.  Please take this opportunity to reflect on all that’s good in your world.

Rosemary will guide you through the construction of this great scrappy quilt.  You will first select your fabric and cut it with the accuquilt go cutter.  If you don’t have your own cutter and specific dies then you are more than welcome to come in any day prior to class and use ours.  Please let us know when you’re coming so we can make sure it’s available at that time.  You need to have basic beginner understanding of cutting, piecing, etc.

Winterberry Tree Skirt

 
 

Saturday, September 30th 10:00-5:00


Everyone needs a beautiful tree skirt or, without the hole, a lovely table topper.  With pre cutting and a dedication to sewing, you should complete the top in one day.  Rosemary will show you a little trick the pattern doesn’t cover.  Isn’t that why we love her classes?

Instructor: Rosemary Mallory

Instruction fee: $25.00 in Superstore gift cards.  A pattern download purchase printout will be required.  The instructions are provided on the supply requirement guide.
