What's New at Quilters' Quarters?

The shop's roof was finished at the end of July, walls were painted upstairs in August, and some of Rick's woodworking tools were then moved into their new, clear space.

That left room in the downstairs workshop for the Wooden Toys and Gifts shop to move into newer quarters. And that move created more open space in the front of the barn for Quilters' Quarters to expand ... and so it is!

Ann's Fat Quarters and Bundles of Eighths
We plan to have all of the moving around finished in time for our 20th and 1st Shop Anniversaries on Small Business Saturday, November 29th.  All of Rick's toys and Terry's quilts will be back from their Art Exhibition display at the Pine Grove School in Rowley. And we have some new offerings from our consignment artists as well:

Ann Lainhart's  Fussy Cut Fabric note cards




Ann Lainhart has restocked our special fat quarters and "bundles of eighths" color family selections from her own collection of beautiful quilt-quality fabrics.  Ann has also added to her collection of quilted note cards, including some Christmas designs for kids.  Remember, these cards include actual hand done "fussy-cut" kaleidoscopic designs worked by Ann herself. Catalogs of Ann's work, including her jackets, vests, tile trivets and more are in the shop; remember to ask for yours if you don't see them while meandering through the cabinets full of fabric, the trunk of orphan offerings (remember: you set the price) and the new Wooden Toy and Gift showroom in the back of the barn.

Lynne Schulte LaValley's art cards


And our local painter, Lynne Schulte LaValley,  is also offering a selection of cards representing some of her favorite holiday images for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years and, if you're really planning ahead, Valentine's Day! Each of her cards contains a high quality print of one of her paintings.


Sandra Golbert's Fibre Art Note Cards
 Sandra Golbert's fibre art cards contain many clever sayings to enhance the images she chooses to incorporate in her mult-media collection of note cards. Birthdays, Weddings, Showers, and Holidays are made more memorable when a special card hits exactly the right spot with that special person.  All of our artists keep their prices reasonable: five or six dollars per card, and a discount if more than four are bought from one artist!

National Wildlife Federation

And our newest artist to join our group is Elizabeth Golz Rush, who, in addition to sharing her fabric line with us, also has been commissioned to provide drawings for gold foil embossed note cards from the National Wildlife Federation, and has generously given us packs of three of her designs, shown below; each of the birds featured in her designs is described in detail on the back of the card.

Her work has also been incorporated into the renowned Elsa Williams' cross stitch kits shown in the photo below, just behind the cards and in front of the fabric line.  Remember,  you can click on any image to enlarge it. There is much more to see at Quilters' Quarters, and even more to find in our webstore

 As the shop's spacial changes occur, more room will exist for workshops, lessons and eventually classes.  One such workshop is being planned for mid to late January: it is my goal to have the two Red-Eye Singer Treadle Sewing Machines in good working condition, and then offer a workshop on how to clean and maintain those old treasures that might be hiding in your family's favorite hidey-hole!
