News from Quilt and Sew

                                             July News

 It's that time of year again

This year's quilt is quite a bit easier than last year's, yet still gorgeous! And, perhaps best of all, it only requires only TWO FABRICS!! So, all you have to do is find two, high-contrast fabrics that coordinate well together, and get sewing! We will help you choose a pleasing combination, if you would like. Plus, you get to choose the size--throw, full/queen, or king! A list of yardage requirements and required supplies is available now, but the first clue will be available for pickup on Saturday, July 7. A new clue will be given out every other week, until the mystery is solved! A demo will be given at 10:00 a.m. on each "clue day," ONLY IF the clue needs explaining. Plus, you can use our monthly retreat sit 'n sew days to work on your mystery quilt! It is always more fun to sew together!


            **There is no fee for participating in the Summery Mystery Quilt, but we would                              greatly appreciate it if you would purchase your required supplies, and preferably your fabric, too, from us.

            **If you do purchase fabric elsewhere or pull from your stash, we ask that you                               please bring it in so we can make sure your chosen fabrics will work well in this pattern. We want you to be completely thrilled with your finished quilt!

            **Clues must be picked up in person at the shop.


            We will be offering a mini-retreat each month from now until December, on a Friday-Sunday! We will meet at 10 am and sew until whenever. You will not believe how much you can get done! Come and join us for one day or for all three. Friday will be a brown bag lunch, and pot luck on the weekend! YOU MUST CALL THE SHOP TO RESERVE A SPOT. It is in our classroom, so space is limited. It’s hot out there—come inside and sew!!! There is no fee for this retreat. Watch newsletters and Facebook for our fall dates.
