For store news and subscriber coupons, please ask to be on my mailing list - here's the link to contact methods, so you can send me your email address.

Hours:  Monday - Saturday 9:30 a.m.  to 5:00 p.m.  If you know you are going to be here close to 5:00, please let us know and someone will stay late.

Store Sales:
Crazy Days - Tuesday, August 7 - This day only, all regularly priced fabrics will be 30% off, minimum 1 yard cuts.  Finish a yard of sale fabric, get half off the original price.  Harlowton's Crazy Days is city-wide!

Coupon Special - All August, you have a discount coupon to be used on regular priced fabrics.  Note that there has been a change in the coupon:  Discount coupon will require a minimum of 1 yard cuts.  Can be used once during the month on all regular priced fabrics.  If you came on Crazy Days, you can still use your coupon for another day in August.

The newsletter coupon specifies:  This coupon entitles its holder to a one time 25% discount on regularly priced fabrics, kits, batting, precuts, and panels not already on sale.  Minimum 1 yard cuts.   Expires 8/31/2018.  May not be used in conjunction with another coupon.

AccuQuilt specials change frequently.  Please give me a call to see what they are.  Often, I can only tell you what that week's special is, one week at a time.  I do the same specials AccuQuilt offers, but our personal service comes with the special.


News:
Help wanted - Part-time help wanted.  As many of you know, one of my current employees is moving to Colorado.  If you know of anyone looking for a part-time job, at least through October, please let me know.  Hours vary and will be limited for the winter months.

Lots of new fabrics are in.  We are working on getting pictures of the fabrics on this website, for you to see remotely.  (There's a page top link.)  There are a lot of them, so this is going to be a lengthy process.

Quilt Retreats:  Three in October - The first two are already full.  (You can get on a waiting list, in case of cancellations.)  The dates are October 12, 13, and 14; October 19, 20, and 21; October 26, 27, and 28.  The third retreat still has openings.
  My quilt retreats are held at The Barnsion, five miles east of Harlowton.  It's a wonderful facility, with bedding and towels furnished.  I have been doing the cooking; also we may have some catered meals this time.  The cost is $175.00, which includes two nights, 4 meals, and at least one kit.  These are "sew on your own" projects, although I try to have a fun new project that you can make and take home.  Any questions or to sign up, please call the store at 406-632-4861.
  April 2019 dates will be 5th-6th-7th and 12th-13th-14th.  October 2019 dates are 11th-12th-13th, October 18th-19th-20th, and October 25th-26th-27th.  I like to keep the retreats small with a maximum of 15.

Farmer's Wife quilt

2017 Imagine That project
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.

1st Saturday of each month in 2017 was 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.

Mother and child 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.

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.

1st 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.

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.
