NEW! Kay's Klub

With great sorrow, we announce that our dear friend and teacher, Kay Lettau, will retire from teaching at the end of this year. Kay and I have worked together for almost 30 years and been friends even longer. I have learned so much from her and I know her students feel the same. Many of you have belonged to Kay's Klub since the beginning and have benefited from her wealth of knowledge. I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to finish up some of those wonderful projects begun under her guidance.

COMPLETE THOSE UFO's OR BUST (2017) - If you have started one (or several) projects in Kay's Klub, you have this chance to get help finishing them. These last two sessions will be dedicated toward completing some or all of these lovely quilts that are waiting for attention. Let Kay assist you in putting these babies to bed. *Sewing machine optional.

Quilt Club

Well into our second year of Quilt Club, I’m happy to say that the group is gaining members and is still enthusiastic. After a What’s New program in Nov, we took a little change of direction in December and made a quick and easy project which was well received and perhaps we’ll try another hands-on program in the future. For the coming six months I am planning programs on Quilts from the 1800’s, Scrap Quilts and maybe a hands on class on resizing blocks. We’d also like to introduce the new Bernina 500 series machines and explain the changes and new features. Programs are usually lecture/demo, allowing time for Q&A. Attendees will receive 10% off purchases made the day of class (non-sale merchandise only). Watch for the emails sent prior to the meeting and please call shop if you plan to attend so we have enough goodies and chairs. As always, suggestions are very welcome.
