We certainly did FALL into Fall….

November 01, 2014

November 1st already….

Fall is flying by, on the way to work this morning Suzie and I heard our first Christmas music on the radio station we listen to on our commute back and forth.  We could not believe it.  While I do not advocate any kind of Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving, it it all too true that December 25, will come all too quickly….

The shop has been bustling with customers, new fabrics, new notions, new sewing machines, classes and events. We can hardly catch our breath, but that is the way we like it, lots of smiling faces and each day just whizzes by!

We have a few photos to share of some of the activities.

Connie & Marcia spent a week in Kalispell, Montana at Quiltworx with Judy Neimeyer.  We had a blast, met some great new friends and are so proud to now be a certified Quiltworx shop!

Last week we hosted Sewapalooza – tons of sewing, embroidery, serger, and Designworx fun!  Plus we have lots of happy Bernina owners! This event even made it into KKTC news! (and I am so sorry I missed taking a photo of one of our tables of gals…I’ll get you three twice next time!)

Grids…..let’s consider them for a moment or two.  When I consider translating a quilt pattern from the original pattern and instructions for AccuQuilt or my specialty rulers---Half Square Triangle and Quarter Square Triangle Ruler---I consider how the block is divided. At this point, it does not matter what size the block is or what size the pieces are, what matters is how the block is divided into segments.  If you look closely at the block above, this block is a 4 x 4 grid.
