Car Seat Blanket Class

Have you seen those perfectly-fitting car seat canopies where the elastic tucks in the back? They're wonderful and so very useful. We are lucky to carry the original pattern for these canopies in our store, and we have one of the designers, Kristi, coming to teach us a class! (Secretly, she works at our shop, too.) She will share tips on using directional fabric, minky, and share other helpful information.

Come take the class and make a car seat blanket for someone you love. Come on. We know you know someone who is having a baby. A sister, neighbor, cousin, or friend. Come learn from the source and enjoy an evening!

September 27th 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
Cost: $15 (includes pattern and class)
UPDATE!! Class has been cancelled. Check back in a few months for another repeat. Sorry for the inconvenience. 

You can even applique anything you'd like on the canopy before sewing it together.
Kristi did this one for her cousin in Kauai, Hawaii. Surfs up!

Block of the Month Starts in August!

We love doing Block of the Month quilts and Marti has a superb one for us starting August 29th! Block of the Month quilts are so much fun. If you haven't been part of a class, now is your time. You do NOT need to be an expert quilter. Come do one block per month and learn from the experts how to do applique quilts one block at a time. If quilts seem to overwhelm you, this is a perfect option. Slow as you go with an instructor there to help you!

The nitty gritty details are as follows:

Who: YOU (and some of your fabulous friends and classmates)!
What: Block of the Month applique quilt class
When: The last Wednesday of each month, starting August 29th at 6:00 p.m.
Where: The Quilting Cottage

Join us!
