Store Sales:
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.

No coupon this month - 20% off regularly priced fabrics (minimum 1 yard cuts), batting, precuts, kits not already on sale, sewing notions over $10.00.  All patriotic panels 40% off.  Please also look at a box of patterns in the foyer that are on sale.  Discount does not apply to books and patterns.  This applies for the entire month of June, every time you come in.  Weekly in store specials.

AccuQuilt special - June 1st - 10th, all Qubes are $20.00 off.  More good things are coming after the 10th.  Great news - the AccuQuilt GO! Me starter set's price has dropped from $199.99 to $99.99 (this is the former Baby GO!)
  For new AccuQuilt specials, you can check the AccuQuilt web site; I honor the specials they list: accuquilt.com/special-offers.htmAccuQuilt specials change frequently.  You are welcome to give the store 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 you get our personal service.

Sun Dog Coffee, our little coffee shop with great food, has extended their hours from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

News:
FUN NEW EVENT - GUESS WHO'S COMING TO OUR STORE ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19TH.  An Educator from AccuQuilt's home office in Omaha, Nebraska will be in our store on Thursday, September 19th.  Two classes will be offered:  GO! Beyond the Basics, and There's a Die for That.  Cost will be $10.00 per class, refundable as store credit the day of the class.  An exclusive die will be offered that is only available at the class.  I have seen it and it is awesome.  These are two hour presentations.
  For those of you not as familiar with your cutter as you could be, or especially if you haven't purchased one yet, on June 29th, July 11th, and July 13th I will be offering a free class on the Basics that you should attend prior to the event.
  More information on the events will be on our web site, and hopefully on our Facebook page.  September 19th will be a fun and exciting event that you won't want to miss.  Early signups (with payment) will go into a drawing for a special prize the day of the event.  No limit on the number attending, in fact the more the merrier.  Bring friends - and for each friend signing up with payment, you will have an additional chance to win, as will your friend, too.  There is also an AccuQuilt trunk show featuring some of the dies.

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.

Fall 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.
  2019's quilt retreats have been expanded to three evenings instead of just two.  Come in on Thursday, leave on Sunday.  The cost has increased to $235 because of the extra night and an extra breakfast.  Each retreat will include three nights at the Barnsion, three breakfasts, two evening meals, games, prizes, and at least one kit for a small project.  This year's project will be a set of coasters, paper pieced, using freezer paper.  You will also have access to the AccuQuilt electric cutter and dies.
  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.
  The 2019 Fall retreats will be 3 weekends in a row, starting on Thursday, October 10.  If you are already signed up, you need to think about paying your deposit to hold your spot, prior to August 15.  No refunds issued after October 1.  If you are still thinking about attending, please call for availability and to be placed on a waiting list.
  The October 2019 dates will be 10th-11th-12th-13th, October 17th-18th-19th-20th (12 participants only), and October 24th-25th-26th-27th.  I like to keep the retreats small with a maximum of 15.  Any questions or to sign up, please call the store at 406-632-4861.

Don't forget Northcott's Stonehenge Block Party, which started March 15th.  Check their web site or ask me for details.  You could win a trip to England.

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.

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.

Sew Saturday quilts for charity. Sew Saturday:
Sew Saturday is 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.
  All hands are welcome, no fee, potluck.  If you can, please let me know by the day before, if you would like to participate.  Fabric donations are welcome!
To keep up our stamina, each Sew Saturday will feature a pot luck lunch.

AccuQuilt logo

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.
