In the Very Merry Months of May and June...

Quilters' Quarters saw four times as many customers this May as compared to last May ... I think all the new fabric in stock was sending out telepathic messages to quilters nearby. Thanks to all who visited us. And there are still more shipments ahead!

June begins this week, and we have a new beneficiary of our "Feel Good Shopping" promotion. The Georgetown Historical Society will be re-opening the Brocklebank Museum for their annual Third Grade field trip next week, and that is the inaugural visit for this year's season. To help them raise money for the year's activities, Quilters' Quarters will be donating ten percent of our first week of June's total sales. Come shop with us knowing that your purchases will help both the Historical Society, and you! Our number of "Five Box Cards" is increasing ... we keep them for you so you won't have to remember to bring it when you stop in to shop.

The summer-long Row by Row™ for 2016 begins in three weeks, and Quilters' Quarters is ready.  Kits are being prepared; patterns have been printed. If you visit our Facebook Page for Quilters' Quarters, you'll see our row there. Here's a small peek:

 Rick continues to build more shelves to hold more bolts of fabrics that suit the "Home Sweet Home" theme for this year.

Some of our new fabrics are reminiscent of last year's nautical theme ... this is a 24" x 44" Wilmington Prints panel of quilt-quality cotton, and would make a great beach blanket. We always have coordinating bolts of seashells anad starfish, as well as strips that have smaller images of the same.

We also have a wonderful collection of red, white and blue fabrics, and our fabric contest using these fabrics is up and running - you'll find the details of the contest at this page.  And we've added some new bolts to our red white and blues!

This is still one of my favorites: we've used it on
a few of our Local Heroes' Quilts of Valor.

Our collection of red, white and blue
fabrics continues to grow.

Thank you for your loyalty!

If you haven't been in to Quilters' Quarters in the past few weeks, you haven't seen how our inventory is growing! We have new panel fabrics, with borders ... new retro fabrics called "Shabby Strawberry" from Riley Blake, new batiks from Mirah (the former Princess line), and beautiful precuts from our favorite fussy-cutter, Ann Lainhart. We've had quite a few new-to-our-shop customers this week, and all have expressed an interest in coming back to see more ~ one of them bought an entire bolt of beautiful roses on a green background!

Charming series for young quilters

A new consignee ... with her own patented invention!

Notions and Rulers and Mats ... oh my!

A few have also been in to talk with me about lessons, and I'm happy to schedule those before or after shop hours. My three young quilters are still visiting and making new things ... one finished a sweet skirt this week, another is working on a new quilt, and one continues to experiment with layers of fabric in intricate designs for small pieces. I love watching them take satisfaction in their progress each week!
