Thank-you to everyone who attended our Sidewalk sale!  It was fun.  No, we are not moving. :)  I'm sorry about the P.S. that said we were moving and pricing 50% items.  I just meant to the other side of the shop! ;)  I have been working on some new projects and I'm starting to offer classes on them.  So, check them out below or on the website.
I'm sure there are many of you madly finishing projects for the quilt show.  You are welcome to come in and use our classroom on days that it is not already in use.  Call a few friends and finish projects together.
What's New?  A variety of batiks arrived yesterday, and some blenders will arrive soon.  A fantastic Indian motorcycle panel came in with four different squares each with a different motorcycle.  New vintage trailer fabric with a light gray background and an aqua background.  There are some matching fabrics, so another version of "Just Blocks" can be made like our last camper quilt.  We have new wool pieces by Week's Dye Works.  Christmas Woolens is the name of a kit with 6 mitten ornaments to make, only $18.99.  Backing fabric in 108" wide arrived yesterday in five different colors.  More batting rolls for rugs, and Tuscany bleached and unbleached packages are here.                                                              

Fall "Quilt As You Go" Table Runner.  I have made this pattern myself.  I will be teaching it to the Pine Needler's Quilt Guild from Groveland on August 24th.  But, I have scheduled the class on Wednesday, August 29th for anyone else who may want to take it.  $20.00 Class fee
I have kits available for $35.99 which include batik precut dye shapes with Steam a Seam already on them, backing, and binding.  The class is from 10:00 until 3:00.  I can give out a fabric requirement list if anyone wants that for using their own fabrics.

Trick or Treat bag classes are scheduled for the next two Thursdays.  Tomorrow, August 2nd there is a quick class based on a book bag pattern that is simple and fun out of Glow in the Dark fabrics.  10:00-12:30  $10.00

The Two Hour Tulip Purse pattern includes a variation to make a Jack-o-lantern bag.  That class is the one on August 9th, but you can also make a purse for yourself instead.  10:00-2:00    $20.00 
Crayon Class    Candy Gutierrez is teaching the technique and this is a repeat of the class given in June.  Seven have already signed up.  If you want in this class, call soon.  A supply list is available.
 10:00-3:30           $30.00 plus a $5.00 material fee        There is a book "Creative Quilts From Your Crayon Box" by Terri Kygar which is out of print, but we have ordered 6 copies from Terri.  $24.99

Jelly Roll Rug Class    Two Separate Classes   One is on August 14th and one is on September 4th.  9:00-4:30 with a lunch break decided on length by class participants.  You must sew 42,  2 1/2" strips of fabric (Jelly Roll) together on the bias like binding before the class.  Come get the pattern and discuss options with us ahead of class dates.  $25.00
Bargello Place Mat    Thursday, August 23rd    10:00 - 4:30    $35.00   May include a second session to be selected by the participants.

Maribel's Tea Party    Patterns available       Request a kit if desired.          Request a class.    We want to assess the interest level first.
Tea Satchel Class             This is a small satchel that would make a cute Christmas gift for those who like to drink tea or hot cocoa.
