Keeping Your Cool While Quilting!


Dear Sisters in Thread,

            We are all trying to beat the heat this summer! We have a lovely air-conditioned shop and classroom in which we would love you to come and relax! Try a Free Demo Thursday or a Pinwheel Party; a Fun Friday or Stitch-cation! Join us in stitchery, quilting or knitting. We will promise you a great time and a cool one too! And the comradery can’t be beat!

            The Crabapple Hill Witch Stitchery is an amazing phenomenon. Come join the fun with Gina either in the daytime (Wednesday Aug. 10, 11-2) or evening (Thursday Aug. 18, 6:30-9) and work on your stitcheries. We have the background fabric in stock and patterns and thread kits too.

            Have you been working on your Sew Together Summer Challenge by making a pinwheel a day? Come to our Pinwheel Party on Saturday August 20 at 11 am to do some bragging and showing off! A light lunch will be served, too!

            Have you always wanted to make a Seven Sisters quilt? Gina is having a two-session class in just that beginning on Wednesday Aug. 31 from 6:30-8:30 pm. It’s a beautiful and fun time and we hope you can come!

            Are you frantically trying to finish something and keep getting interrupted by your non-quilting life? Then we have a solution for you! Come join our Stitch-cation on Friday Aug. 19 from 10 am to 7 pm, free of charge. Come bring your project, a bag lunch and turn your phone off and work in our classroom free of charge! We will provide the coffee, cool air and conversation!

            Our Row by Row is going nicely this year but we still need a winner in our shop! Are you close to finishing yours yet? We are looking forward to having a winner as soon as we can!
