Car Show

Leonardtown's annual car show was on the square yesterday.  Jane and Cindy set up a booth of quilted items, panels and FQs and were part of the festivities selling several items.  They said they talked to several quilters that didn't even know there was a shop in town so that was great, maybe we will get a few new customers out of it.

New In the Shop

New in  this week is Northcott Stonehenge Canyon horse fabric and a wonderful selection of Timeless Treasures blenders called Willow.  With the variation of shades in each bolt and the subtle willow pattern I think these have a slight oriental look.

Fiber Arts Retreat

We had our vendor table and taught two classes at the fiber arts retreat over the weekend.  I think everyone had a great time and loved seeing all the quilts.  

Here are a few of the quilts for the show spread out in the church

and the ladies greeting everyone as they arrived for classes or the quilt show

Nice to have a small show in the area since there is no long one at Sotterley and the Honey Bees have also decided not to have any further shows.  

Great job by all the organizers!!

I dropped the 11 Quilts of Kindness going to Hospice off at the St. Mary's Hospice house yesterday on the way home from the shop.  Today the 7 quilts for the Charlottle Hall Veteran's home are being picked up and I will be delivering the 8 Project Linus quilts off tomorrow at our local Fiber Arts Retreat.    Thanks again to everyone that participated in this effort!!

First Friday

Thanks to all that came out for the Twister Demo last night.  Jane did a great job and got several ladies excited about making twister quilts.  We sold several templates, patterns and books so hope that I get to see some of those finished quilts a few weeks or months down the road.

Sorting of the Quilt

Gathered up all the bags and bins that the 26 Quilts of Kindness were in last night and sorted them out.  We are going to be donating 8 kid friendly quilts to Project Linus, 7 quilts to the Charlotte Hall Veteran's Home and 11 quilts to St. Mary's Hospice.

I need to draft a letter to go with these quilts explaining why we were doing this and make arrangements to get them delivered.  Hopefully will be able to do that in the next few days.
