Store procedure:
Appointments to shop in Diana's store are no longer required.  If you are fully vaccinated, wearing a mask is optional.  If not, your mask should cover your nose and mouth at all times in the store.  If this is difficult for you, or if you have been exposed to Covid or are experiencing any signs of illness, please shop online.  Mask wearing is on the honor system, and we respectfully ask that you comply for the safety of our other customers and our staff.  Thanks for your cooperation!  For more than 3 or 4 coming, a heads-up a few days before is helpful, so that we can have two people working.

    *  *  *  *  *

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.

Regularly priced fabric (minimum 1 yard cuts), kits not already on sale, sewing notions over $10.00, and precuts will be 25% off through the month of August.  The discount may decrease in the future with additional increased supply costs of goods.  The increases from our fabric suppliers that we are seeing now are due to increasing freight costs.  Finish a bolt of SALE fabric and it is half off the original price.

AccuQuilt Specials - please call to hear the current special.  A new 4 inch Qube, setting triangle dies for all sizes of the Qubes, Flamingo die, and two new strip cutters, 2 3/4 and 6 inch are now available.  If you see a special that AccuQuilt is offering, give me a call to see if we can offer it.

News:
New fabrics are continuing to arrive.  New Christmas fabrics, kits, and precuts have been arriving.  New batiks are expected Friday, July 30th.

Click the Catalog link at the top of any page on this website to see fabrics, kits, quilts, and other goodies.  And check out our Facebook page, as well as the website, for new fabrics and other items.
  To order fabrics from the web site, you do need to call the store (406-632-4861) .  The great thing about calling, is that I can send you close up pictures of the fabrics you are interested in.  It takes a bit longer that just being able to place an order on line, but you do get knowledgable personal service as you would with a store visit.  An email requesting close up photos with a follow-up phone call will also work.

My Mystery Mailing started in January.  Each mailing includes $60.00 to 65.00 worth of goodies.  If mailed, the cost will be $45.00, or you may pick your bundle up at the store for $37.00.  Each mystery mailing includes fun stuff, and changes from month to month.  It could be a fun project, could be a box of goodies, it could be anything; that's the fun part of mysteries.  July's mailing was 4 yards of Christmas fabric to use with the three yard quilt book from a previous mailing and a cool thread cutter.  We always make extras when we do something to go with a book.  We have some 4 yard bundles with your choice of a three yard quilt book for sale.  Now I have to think August mailing.  Hmmm.  I may run out of ideas by the end of the year.

Classes and Events:
Our October Quilt retreats are full, but if you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please let me know, in case we have anyone cancel.

Classes - We will be restarting the GoCutter Club on Tuesday, August 10.  Please let me know if you are interested, so I know how much space to clear.  Hopefully by next week, I will have a idea of what we will be doing.  If you have something you would like to learn, let me know and we can address that.  Or we can choose a pattern and make a table runner using one of the 72 blocks that can be made with a Qube.

Regular classes will depend on what happens with Covid in the next few weeks.  Aren't we all wishing it would just go away?!  - 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.

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.
