Some of you are also going back to school, or back to work, and all are watching the calendar days slip by while beginning to look for materials to use in fall projects ... holidays are ahead and we have a lot of fabrics and patterns ready for those quilts and pillow cases, table runners, totes, purses, slippers and more.
We're going to try something new this fall: Friday evening (from 6 to 8 pm) and Saturday afternoon (from 4 to 6) workshops! Each session is offered for $15.00, and allows for a 15% discount on fabrics and notions purchased for the project of the day.
We'll then have a late start of the workshop series on Friday, September 11th with a workshop on making "quilt as you go" blocks in patriotic colors that can be donated as Quilts of Valor to our Military Veterans, or to our EMTs, Firefighters and Police Officers who keep us safe every day.. Quilters' Quarters will revisit this workshop on the second Friday evening of each month, and will accept donated blocks produced to be assembled into quilts for our local veterans. (If you prefer to keep your block(s) and assemble your own quilt, you certainly may do that.) Fabrics purchased at Quilters' Quarters for this effort wil lbe discounted by 15%. We have a small group of local QoV quilters who enjoy making and finding recipients for these quilts. The workshop will be repeated on the following Saturday afternoon for those unable to attend in the evening.
For the third week of the month, on Friday, September 18th, our workshop will feature easy to make Totes for carrying the books in style ... our local library is having its annual Book Sale that weekend, and the totes will be very handy for carrying home those treasures you find Friday night, Saturday, Sunday and Monday at the Georgetown Peabody Library on Maple Street in town. Watch for the book sale reminders on Facebook! That workshop will also be repeated the following Saturday afternoon at Quilters' Quarters.
On Friday, September 25th, we'll have a lesson on the Quick and Clever Pillowcase, so that you will be ready to turn out novelty pillow cases for every member of your family, using fabrics chosen especially for each one. That workshop will repeat on Saturday September 26th.
October workshops will feature Sewing Machine Dust Covers, our ongoing patriotic quilt as you go blocks, school day lunch boxes and washable sandwich bags, Halloween table runners, and one surprise workshop.
Vintage Sewing Machine and Back to school fabrics are in stock at the shop and are also posted at our webstore: remember you can click the image to enlarge it for viewing.
