Quilt Essentials February 2017 Newsletter

February 2017

This year is already off to a very quick start. January was full of new beginnings, with new classes and new events at the shop. I hope you were able to join us for many of them. Join us this Saturday for Second Saturday Sampler. This month we have a T-shirt class for those of you who have been saving t-shirts for a project just like this. The class is scheduled for Saturday, February 25th.

Registration is now open for the Quilt Essential’s UnFinished Objects (UFO) spring quilt retreat on May 18-21, 2016. We will gather at Sunlight Meadows Ranch on May 18th at 3:00. It is about 45 miles from Laramie and 15 minutes from Red Feather Lakes. Bring whatever projects you are working on. We’ll spend time quilting, laughing, eating and forming new friendships and strengthen old friendships all while enjoying the beautiful spring scenery.

The Ranch provides sewing tables and chairs, your own bed, pillow, bedding and towels. Most beds are large twins. There are two kitchens, four bathrooms, two living rooms, and two TV areas. There are irons and cutting tables available however you may want to bring your own cutting mats.

Just today a shipment of new baby flannels arrived and the shipments will start rolling in now that we have completed inventory.  There are also new notions arriving including mesh canvas for bags.  Don’t forget the class schedule has been set through March. Check the website calendar and Facebook for details. If there is a class you would like to see please let us know. I do try to add them to the schedule when I can.

We would love to see you in shop this month.

Happy Quilting,
Kara
