HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!

 
 
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:
January's newsletter coupon gives a one time 25% discount on regularly priced fabrics, kits, batting, precuts, and panels not already on sale.  Minimum 1 yard cuts.

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.

January store specials:  25% off regularly priced fabrics and other items not already on sale - minimum one yard cuts.  Notions over $10.00 will also be discounted.  Also, Christmas fabrics and Christmas panels will be 30% off for the month of January.  Some panels from December's sale remain on sale as well.

Bali Batik Club from Hoffman - Each month's club package contains 12 coordinating fat quarters of Bali Batiks.  Sign up for the full year and your cost drops to $35.00 per month, otherwise the cost of the bundle is $39.60.  This is a great way to build your stash of batiks; the selections are fantastic.

We now have a nice selection of blenders from Benartex in that will take the place of the Plaster of Paris fabrics from Frond that some of us really liked.

AccuQuilt select dies are up to 40% off while supplies last.  There's a list available at the store, or give me a call and I can tell you which dies are on sale and the discount.  AccuQuilt specials change frequently.  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 you get our personal service.

News:
*New class this month!* - 12 months of Mariner's Compasses class begins January 26th.  We will sew a different Mariner's compass each month.  At the end of the year, you will have enough blocks for a quilt.  Call me for details.  Please note the date of this class has changed.  If you are interested in having a class in the middle of the week, please let me know.

Our new Imagine That Club started in September with a new fat quarter.  It's not too late to join the fun.  Your $5.00 payment for the fat quarter joins the prize pool for the year.  Our project unveiling date will be September 6, 2019.  Everyone gets the same fat quarter, to make whatever their imagination tells them to (except pot holders.)  The fat quarter material can be combined with any other fabrics, as long as it is used in the project.

A new UFO (UnFinished Objects) club is starting now.  The first meeting to have your project done will be February 9th.  There's no cost to join, just bring a list of 6 items and I will give you the number for the project you need to have finished by the February meeting.  We meet at 11:00 a.m. on a Saturday every two months.  I furnish soup or salad.  Whoever doesn't have their project finished brings dessert.  Call me if you would like to join.  It's a great way to get those unfinished projects done. 

Sun Dog Coffee Shop is now open in Harlowton Monday through Saturday, 7:00 a.m.  - 2:00 p.m., serving coffee, tea, breakfast burritos, baked goods, and a lunch special.  It is located on the corner of Central and Highway 12, across from the train engine.

Quilt Retreats:  My quilt retreats are held at The Barnsion, five miles east of Harlowton.  It's a wonderful facility, with bedding and towels furnished.  The cost is $175.00, which includes two nights, 4 meals, and at least one kit.  These are "sew on your own" projects; you should bring whatever you want to sew, 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 (12 openings only), and October 25th-26th-27th.  I like to keep the retreats small with a maximum of 15.
  Update - We may be adding a day, so that quilters can come in on Thursday, and still leave on Sunday.  An extra day will increase the cost.  I have to discuss this with the Barnsion owners before a final decision is made.  If you have signed up, please let me know your preference about number of days.

Classes and Events:
January 1 - closed for New Year's
January 5 - no class
January 12 - One Block Wonder Class
January 19 - follow-up class for One Block Wonder
January 26 - 12 Months of Mariner's Compasses

Please call to sign up for classes by the Wednesday preceding the class.  If you think of any classes you might be interested in taking, please make suggestions.

Any questions, please give me a call. - Diana

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.

March featured a Spring project.
April featured a Paper Pieced table runner for Mother's Day.

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.
