Winter Open House

Rosemary Kelly, Janet Nichols, Estelle Wilson and Judy Jackson
Yesterday we held our Winter Open House at The Christmas Crab Quiltery.  Shelley, Margie, Ellen and I were so.....happy to see you all.  What a great turnout!  Snowstorm and all!  Margie had new samples to inspire everyone.  Her new Woven Bag is soooooo cute.  She is adding it to the curriculum.  She has lots of new classes planned and many are included in the Christmas Club.  The club will meet one Saturday per month to create beautiful gifts and decorations for next Christmas.
 Great teacher
  Start early
Work together
Great Gifts, Great Times

I gave a very casual demo (more of a show and tell, really) on Soft and Stable and Estelle Wilson was the lucky winner of the Doorprize, Award Winning Quilts Calendar 2012.

Soft and Stable, made by Superior Threads,  is a lovely foam batting which is covered, top and bottom, with a sheer fabric.  It is easy to work with and gives your projects ie. bags and placemats, etc. an extra umph.  We have it in both white and black.  I will give you 20% off your first package if you mention that you read about it on the blog of Jan. 22.
