Weekend Workshops

Sue O’Dea will teach a very attractive and useful Ruler and Mat Bag on Saturday, September 24.
Fandance is a scrap-happy pattern inspired by a photo in a magazine.  But Sue invented a new, quilter-friendly technique and will teach her secret method on Saturday, October 1.
Carolyn teaches Machine Quilting I—Straight Line Quilting on Sunday, October 2 and Machine Quilting II—Free Motion & Advanced Designs on Sunday, October 30.

Sue teaches a fun pattern called Stormy Trip on Saturday, October 29.  Sue’s sample has been quilted but still needs a binding.  Here is a photo of the pattern.
Deb returns on Saturday, November 5 to teach Spring Flowers.  Her sample is almost done and we will post a photo when it is done because the black and gray photo from the pattern does not even hint at how pretty this fun project can be.
Sue will teach a delightful giraffe wallhanging or crib quilt called Lanky Patch on Saturday, November 6.
Carolyn teaches Tumbling Triangles in any of six sizes on Saturday, November 26.

The Vermont Shop Hop wrapped up recently.  Please remember that the shop will be closed from April 1 through April 15.  We will reopen on April 16 when Sue heads off to the quilt show in Paducah.  During this break for housekeeping we will still be checking emails and voice mails.  Carolyn will also be catching up with her quilting.  If you need to bring or pick up a quilt during the period the shop is closed, please email Carolyn to make an appointment.  Our plans are in progress for our Spring Retreat but the retreat is fully booked.  We do have a waiting list in the event there are cancellations.
