Quilt Show Season is Here~

Last weekend was the big quilt show, Machine Quilting Exhibition (MQX,) in Manchester, NH. This weekend is the Northern Lights Quilt Show at the Richmond Middle School in Hanover, NH. The Hannah Dustin Quilters Guild will hold its show next weekend in Hudson, NH, and the Merrimack Valley Quilters Guild Show is at the Timberlane Regional High School in Plaistow, NH.

Remember to click on an image to enlarge it for details.

Post cards unique to Massachusetts Row by Row participants are still available here at our shop. We were the only shop in our state to order these, and we will soon be sharing the left-over supply with other quilt shops who request them.

We also have a small quantity of 2014 HAPPY QUILTER license plates left in stock and will sell those along with the new 2015 edition.

Quilters' Quarters is gearing up for its next event: the Red White and Blue Fabric Contest.  I'll post details in next week's entry, but start gathering some of your favorite scraps for this new challenge, which will start May 1st and run through June 17th (which, of course, is the day after Flag Day!)

And that will bring us to the opening of the 2015 Row by Row Experience, opening on June 21st ... and we are getting ready at Quilters' Quarters. Nautical fabrics will be very popular this year as the theme of the event is WATER. Here's a preview of the fabrics we'll have on hand during the summer months:

Three of these fabrics and a solid blender will be used in the row we have designed for our 2015 free pattern: we've embellished the row with some fun nautical buttons that will be made available in the shop as well.

And we are beginning to stock Superior Threads (in addition to the Coats and Clark, Gutermann and Mettler brands.)  You can see a close up of what is on the display table in the photos that follow:

The Masterpiece line (a new tri-poly thread  exclusively used by quilt show artist Alex Anderson) has begun arriving. And Ricky Tim's favorite polyester "Art Studio" brings its bright colors into the shop, too
Fantastico is a polyester blend with variegated colors that will bring your work added detail.  And Superior's famous Egyptian line, "King Tut" with long cotton fibers is available in both solid and variegated colors. We've also ordered and will be receiving soon the "Bottom Line" all cotton thread that is loved for its stability as a bobbin thread, but also works well as a top thread. 

Come in soon and see all of the new fabrics, threads and notions at Quilters' Quarters. It's been a long, cold winter but the sun is shining and the barn is warming up naturally. Our quilts are home from the winter library quilt expo, and some of them are for sale! 

As always, if you are reading this in your email, thank you for joining our site and receiving our newsletters. Please invite your friends to the shop or to the site ... we love meeting new friends! We're open Wednesday through Saturday, from 11 am to 7 pm, unless we're at a quit show, in which case we'll notify you by posting at the top of the page, and on our Facebook Page.
We're easy to contact and would love to assist you in designing and making your own quilt.
