  Cost will be $150 per person, which will include meals.  There are some stairs involved with the rooms.  We will have a truck show on what you can do with panels, Go Cutters will be available for your use, other demos.  Come sew to your hearts content in a lovely setting.  All amenities are provided.  You are welcome to bring snacks, if you like.  Call me at the store for more details.  Sign up by October 1, as space is limited to 20 people.  Each section has three bedrooms with two twin beds so you will be sharing a room with either a new friend or an old one.  The section that is on the lower level does have two queen beds in a loft area, if you want to share a bed with a friend.  Let me know your preference when you sign up.  Pay half or all at the time of signup; a remaining half can be paid at the retreat.

AccuQuilt special for the month of September is a $30 rebate from AccuQuilt with the purchase of any of the three Go Cutters.  For those of you who own one of the first Qubes, the companion Qubes are here.  They expand the original 72 blocks that you could make from the Qube to a total of 144 blocks.  They come in 6, 8, 9 and 12 inch Qubes.

ACTIVITIES

* September 10 - Imagine that Party!  Participants in the "Imagine That Club" are invited to the club finale party on September 10th from 11am-1pm.  Unveiling of your projects, lunch, voting, prizes, fun.  If you haven't already let me know if you are coming or not, please do so by Wednesday, September 7 so I have a count for food and prizes.
  >>> The unveiling party is for club participants, but the store is open as usual during the party. <<<
  If this sounds awesome, but you didn't sign up this year, a new Imagine That Club will start this month.  Your cost is $5.00.  You receive a fat quarter of fabric which you can turn into anything that your imagination tells you to, except potholders.  Next year's party will be September 16th, unless the people at this year's party would prefer a different date.  (Next month's newsletter will have that information in it.)

September 17 - Sew Saturday.  Sew or cut fabric for quilt tops to be used for donated quilts for the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch.  Pot luck lunch.

Imagine That Beach Ladies project entry
Join the sewing fun at Diana's Quilts-n-Things!

My quilting groups are friendly gatherings where you can concentrate, share, work, and learn.  My store has special equipment and work space for quilters to use, and lots of materials and patterns.  Come on in to work on your projects - where everything you need is at hand, including new techniques and experienced advice.

PREPARATIONS: If a club or class member is bringing a guest, or if you want to attend a single session, or if you are a class subscriber and want to switch Saturdays, please contact Diana beforehand.

3rd Saturday of each month is Sew Saturday sewing quilts for charity - all hands are welcome, no fee, potluck.  It does help if you let me know you are planning to attend.  Fabric donations are welcome!

My Imagine That Club is an annual challenge.  Each Imagine That Club participant receives a free fat quarter of a select fabric to inspire a project, and then works at home to create whatever they imagine from it.  An Imagine That project can be a quilt, a wall hanging, or whatever someone wants to make.  There is just one limitation:  "NO potholders, please."  Use your Imagination!  Your project can be any size and may include other fabrics as you like, but it must include at least part of the fat quarter.  (Small pieces count.)  In August or September all the participants will get together for an Unveiling Party with food and prizes.  $5 participation fee, open to anyone.

If you have questions on any of these, please give me a call. (406-632-4861)


Saturday classes are all day classes starting at 9:30 a.m. and running until 4:30 p.m.

Valentine's Day heart. 12 Months of Holidays:
In 2014, we sewed the 12 Months of Christmas, completing easy Christmas projects including a Christmas stocking, themed wall hangings, coasters, table centers and table mats, and a mug rug.

In 2015, we sewed 12 Months of Holidays.  This included a different project each month and many different techniques.  Kits for the projects were priced at 25% off.  These quick and easy projects help you decorate for holidays, and make seasonal gifts.  To attend for a specific project, pay a class fee, plus the cost of the kit.

January featured a Valentine's Day wall hanging, using reverse applique.
February featured a Easter project.
March featured a Spring project.
April featured a Paper Pieced table runner for Mother's Day.
May featured a Tumbler block flag for July.
August featured a "stained glass" table runner.
September featured a turkey placemat.
October featured An American In Paris table runner.

This Saturday activity runs all day, starting at 9:30 a.m.

Sew Saturday quilts for charity. Sew Saturday:
We will be sewing quilts to donate for charity fund raisers.  Some quilts will be going to the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch, some to Special K Ranch in Columbus, some to A Safe Place in Helena, which is for Military women suffering from Post Traumatic Stress, and others where ever else we feel they can be used.

To keep up our stamina, each Sew Saturday will feature a pot luck lunch.

3rd Saturday of each month, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Anyone is welcome.  If you can, please let me know by the day before, if you would like to participate or donate fabric.

Construction of a One Block Wonder quilt. One Block Wonder:

This class may be covered on two Saturdays.  If needed, the second Saturday's date and activities will be determined by what works for the students in the class.  The class runs all day, starting at 9:30 a.m.

AccuQuilt logo

Quilts on this website made with the GO! Cutter are the Bugs quilt #6-1066, this geometric quilt #6-1067, and the rag quilt #6-1024.                    

GoGo Club was a Monday night club in 2010.

Detail from Progressive quilt Progressive Quilt:
There is no pattern for the progressive quilt - each person creates a quilt center from good quality 100% cotton fabric, and passes the started quilt on to another group member, who adds the next section, and so on.  When a quilt has been completed, with care from everyone in the group, it returns to the person who started it to keep.  There's a better picture of this quilt in the Gallery.

The Progressive Quilt was a Monday night club in 2011.

Scaregirl wall hanging (detail) Seasonal Club:
We enjoy making small projects related to the seasons.  Wall hangings, table runners, and other fun fabric art items make it easy to dress up our homes.

The Seasonal Club was a Monday night club in 2012.
