*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. Ask for a supply list. 2 sessions, $30

Quilt Club
Quilt Club is going strong and having a great time learning and sharing information....and a few cookies. We’ve recently had a Trunk Show of Madison Cottage Designs quilts and discussions on Border Treatments, Where Does the Fabric Come From? and Batting Basics. We plan programs on I Hated Geometry, Quilts from the 1800’s, plus others and are taking suggestions from the Club. Programs are usually lecture/demo, Q&A, and attendees will receive 10% off purchases made the day of class (non-sale merchandise only). Please call shop each month to let us know you are coming so we have enough goodies and chairs. Ask for a supply list.
