Quilt 'n' Fabric March Newsletter

What a winter, and we still had some snow this morning! Spring come soon, PLEASE.

We have two classes coming up this month-

Sunday, March 9th at 1:00PM-4:00PM 'Zig'' Speight will be teaching a “Jean”eology quilt- Bring scraps of old jeans and tuck them into a remembrance quilt. If you don't have enough of warn out jeans, there will plenty available for you. I will attach a picture to this e-mail. The cost is $20.00. Please let us know (you don't have to pay for the class up front), by Saturday morning at the latest.

Our next quilt class is on March 30th. Zig will teach a class on combining several classic patterns into one square. Therefore I am calling the class 'It's Elemental'. The blocks that the Island Quilters sewed for our Pro Bono quilt is an example of these types of patterns. What a delightful way of learning several blocks and transforming them into something new! I will send out more info as it becomes available, but if you are willing to just take a chance of having some fun, let me know right away.

Lastly, we are having a 'FIRST' at the shop. On March 20th, at 1:00PM, we will be hosting Leslie Tate Mark who grew up on Cranberry Island. She is a designer of fabrics for Clothworks and has a new line called Unity. Please stop by to say 'Hello' and see the patterns that make up this group.

As always, we teach children how to knit, crochet and sew. We have two groups; one on Thursday and one on Saturday. If you or you child is interested in learning these crafts, please give me a call to set up a date and time.
