Winter 2014

    Well we are off and running into a new year, I hope and pray for it to be a great one for us all.  The winter season seems to be a long one in Wisconsin, and I am already looking to warm weather returning, but we have the quilting season to keep us warm.  As the new spring fabric starts to arrive and we are done with the projects for the holidays, we can now think of some of the quilting projects we want to try for ourselves, or finish some of our UFO’S.  The new class list will give you something to try, learn to work with wool or to embroider, learn to make Hexies.  The new Block of the Month is from Primitive Gatherings called Words to Live By made with fabric and wool will start in spring of 2014.  Stop in and take a look.

HEXIES

    Hex-a-long with me into 2014, we started this last fall if anyone wanted to do English Paper Piecing, the second Fridays of the month.  This great pastime is something to do on those long cold winter nights and watch a quilt or table topper come together.  This kind of project is very portable and can be planned or done with a lot of scraps. Stop in and join me, second Fridays of the month from 1 – 4 PM.  There are lots of possibilities.
