Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day

I’m so excited to be spending “Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day” at one of my favorite quilt shops,  Gruber’s!

They so graciously invited me to do book signings and demonstrations on my latest book, “Twice as Nice, Quilts with Scrap-Saving Bonus Projects“.

So…you are cordially invited to join us!

Where:  Gruber’s Quilt Shop,  310 – 4th Avenue NE Waite Park, MN

When:  January 24, 2013  10:00 – 2:00

From Gruber’s Newsletter

Leave me a comment telling me the name of your favorite quilt shop and where it is located.  One lucky winner will win a copy of my new book!

Moving on… Martingale has been busy with their advertising.  Look for these in your quilt magazines!

Once the holidays were over (and I survived that darn flu!) I’ve been busy sewing.  I’ve been working on a few secret projects that, somewhere down the road, will be really fun to unveil!

I also designed and finished these quilts.  The pattern will only be available at your LOCAL quilt shop. So look for it in the next month or so.  I had a good time using some fun stitch combinations on my Bernina 550 QE to do the quilting. I have to say, that is one nice thing about the modern quilts…straight line quilting!!

I hope you are spending some time quilting too!  It’s so nice to be cozy hanging out with new fabrics  🙂

Check back after the 24th to see who the comment winner is!!  AND  don’t forget to visit your favorite quilt shop next week!!!!!

Until we chat again,

  1. I see you don’t monetize your website, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn additional
    bucks every month because you’ve got hi quality content. If you want
    to know how to make extra bucks, search for: Mrdalekjd methods for $$$

    My favorite quilt shop is Sew WhatFabrics/Batiks Etc. in Wytheville, VA. It is about an hour away, but the shop has the most wonderful batiks, kits, classes, and clubs.The employees are very helpful and the shop owners are very good to their customers.

    I like Gruber’s too, but also like Quilted Treasures in Rogers, MN.
