AccuQuilt specials - If you have been thinking of a GO! Cutter, now is the time.  Some really great specials:  From now until December 6, $30 off all GO! Qube products and receive a new Eleanor Burns Book, Outside the Box.  Also $150.00 off the GO! Fabric Cutter and the Ready, Set GO!

Give me a call.

For new AccuQuilt specials, you can check the AccuQuilt web site; I honor the specials they list:
  AccuQuilt 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.

Speaking of AccuQuilt, during the educator event, one of our customers didn't get home with her order.  Would you all please check your goodies that you purchased that day, to be sure we didn't send someone's order with you.  Her order included a 2 1/2 inch strip cutter, Arkansas Traveler Die, and quite a bit of fabric.  She doesn't appear to have her receipt either, so it might be in the bag.

We hope to get the patterns from the educator event trunk show to those who requested them within this next week.

Found items - pair of sunglasses, think these might belong to someone from Malta.  Pack the Place in Pink long sleeve tee, left at last quilt retreat.

Anniversary Open House - starting our 16th or 17th year, wow!  We are moving our celebration forward two weeks this year:  November 22 and 23.  If the weather doesn't cooperate, we will do an encore on December 6 and 7.  Hot spiced cider, cookies, door prizes, and in-store specials those two days.

Can you believe it is November already?  Where has this year gone?  Five Quilt Retreats, one AccuQuilt educator event, the traveling quilt shop event, classes - it's been a busy year.  Lots of new fabrics in, and new fabrics on the sale shelves.

2020 Quilt retreats - Cost is $250.00 for three nights, 5 meals, 1 kit.  Retreat spaces are filling fast.  There are openings in the April 23, 24, 24, 26 retreat, only one left in April 16, 17, 18, 19.  October retreats:  There are openings in  the October 1, 2, 3, 4 retreat.  Only one opening left in the Oct 22, 23, 24, 25 retreat.

Quilt Retreat Notes:  Pay the deposit to hold your spot, no cancellation refunds closer than 2 weeks to the start date.  If you are thinking of attending, please call for availability and possibly be placed on a waiting list.
  My quilt retreats are held at The Barnsion, five miles east of Harlowton.  It's a wonderful facility, with bedding and towels furnished.  Three evenings; come in on Thursday, leave on Sunday.  I like to keep the retreats small with a maximum of 15.
  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.  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.

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.

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.

If you have a question about my clubs, activities, or schedule,
