Friday is Link Day plus General Happenings.

Wow where did the week GO ?  There was a lot happening at the store, and if you attended any of the events, there was lots to see and learn. 

The First meeting of the year for Clubhouse Quilts led by our Laura.. was well attended at the afternoon session.  16 anxious sewist were ready to begin the instructions for "Amaretto Cottage".  There is also an evening Clubhouse Quilt meeting. 

Laura showed everyone a new technique for creating perfect 1/2 square triangles. As always.. her instruction were clear and precise.  
Of course when attending "Clubhouse Quilts" there is always a bit more in the way of learning and fun. 
When attending this club you get more than project instructions..

  • There is always show and tell.. This month Vicky and Phyllis provided some fantastic eye candy.. when they showed their Thimble Berries quilts.. beautifully quilted.  Carla.. showed the completed Clubhouse quilt from last year. and there were more.   
  • Bonus Bucks.. A ClubHouse exclusive.
  • The drawings for attendance prize.
  • And the entertainment.. that comes FREE with Laura's classes. 
Also this week Brother sent us Michelle.. to inform potential Embroidery Business owners.  For many the Embroidery Business can become a full time business.. or an income supplement for families. 
Thanks Michelle.. 

If you will be heading in to the store this week-end.. be sure and check out Karen's new quilt.. from a Bali Pop or Jelly Roll.   It's right beyond the Professional Embroidery Machines.. on your way to the cutting table.   Three hours of sewing.. and it is gorgeous.  There is also a sample block.. and any of the sales assistants will give you an across the counter "how to".
