HELP ME HELP YOU
It would help me to have advance notification if you have a group of 4 or more.  (406-632-4861)  Right now, I am still short-handed, which gives you more time to look around, until I can help the next person.  (Know anyone who would like a part time job?)  I am scheduled to have a knee replaced next month on June 14th, so we may have some limited hours in June.  Because of that we will be having >>> bigger specials in May <<<.

SPECIALS - Regularly priced fabric (minimum 1 yard cuts), kits not already on sale, and sewing notions over $10.00 will be 25% off with use of a credit card.  If you pay with cash or a check, you get an additional 5% off (30%).  Sale fabric - finish a bolt of sale fabric and receive a full 1/2 off the original price.
  More fabrics have been added to the sale area.  We received another shipment of cuddle remnants at $10.00 a yard.

AccuQuilt specials - Ask about these.  New dies are issued every month.  We will match any special AccuQuilt is offering.  You can schedule a demo for the GO! Cutters and see if these are a good fit for you.  They provide very accurate cutting, and less strain on neck and shoulders.  There is a new AccuQuilt "Trade Up" program - ask me for details.
Introducing the new GO! BIG DIE CATCHER.

Exclusive tray for the GO! Big.  Catches all GO! die sizes, provides storage for the cutter's power adapter.  Will be available later this summer.  Preorder now, as the supply will be limited when first released.  We have a number pre-ordered --- call me to reserve yours today (or before May 15th.)

For more info, see www.accuquilt.com/gobigdiecatcher.

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

NEWS
Quilt Retreats for 2024:  Each retreat features fun days and three nights at the Barnsion, outside of Harlowton.  A retreat starts on Thursday, and ends on Sunday.  Towels and bedding are provided.  Enjoy my continental breakfasts and evening meals on Friday and Saturday, then a full breakfast on Sunday.  For more details, give me a call.
  The retreat price is $275.00, covering the cost of the facility and the cost of food for the meals that I provide.
  We had a nice group in April.  This year's October 10-13 and October 17-20 retreats have a waiting list available, if you'd like to be notified in case someone cancels.  (That did happen in April.)
  2025 dates are tentatively set for April 10-13, October 16-19 and October 23-26.  The sign up for those dates has already started.

We have a new supply of Leanin Tree all occasion cards in.  We now have 72 colors of embroidery thread, plus black in stock.  We also have had some really neat new fabrics coming in.

My Mystery Mailing started in January 2021 and continues.  Each mailing includes $60.00 to 70.00 worth of goodies.  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.  The cost is $55 for mailing, $47 for pickup.  Please advise if you wish to sign up.

CLASSES
No group classes scheduled.

MASK POLICY
We welcome masked shoppers to browse Diana's, but are no longer requiring masks.  Click here for mask policy details and accommodations.

ORDER BY PHONE OPTION
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 online, 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.

Stay safe and healthy out there.
- 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.

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.
August featured a "stained glass" table runner.
September featured a turkey placemat.
October featured An American In Paris table runner.

This Saturday activity runs all day, starting at 9:30 a.m.

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

Quilts on this website made with the GO! Cutter are the Bugs quilt #6-1066, this geometric quilt #6-1067, and the rag quilt #6-1024.                    

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.
