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.

Our specials will change twice during the month of February.  But, sewing notions over $10.00 are 20% off for the entire month of February.
  For those of you who might have missed our great sale in January:  February 1 through February 8, regularly priced fabric will be 30% off, minimum 1 yard cuts; kits, precuts, and panels not already on sale are 25% off.  Finish a bolt of sale fabric, and the price will be half off the original price.  Sale prices do include the new fabrics that just came in - be tempted; they are beautiful!
  February 10th through February 15th, take 25% off regularly priced fabrics (minimum 1 yard cuts), kits not already on sale, and precuts.
  February 17th through the end of the month, get 20% off on regularly priced fabrics (minimum 1 yard cuts), kits, precuts, and panels not already on sale.

AccuQuilt specials - GoMe's, regularly priced at $99.99, are $49.98 until my current limited stock is gone.  These are what used to be called the Baby Goes, and they have been discontinued by AccuQuilt.  February 2 - February 20:  Go! Qubes are $20.00 off.  There will be other AccuQuilt specials throughout the month.
  My GO! Cutter Club meets on February 1 and February 4.  There's a new project each month.  This club will continue to be held the first Tuesday and Saturday of each month.  The club meets at 10:00 a.m.  Please let me know your interest a few days ahead of time if you can, so I know how many are coming.  April's club will be meeting on a different date as I will be busy coming home from Mississippi on Saturday, April 4.

  For new AccuQuilt specials, you can check the AccuQuilt web site; I honor the specials they list: accuquilt.com/special-offers.htm
  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.

News:
The GO! Cutter Club (February 1 and February 4, see above) will meet in April on a different date as I will be busy on Saturday, April 4.

New UFO group starting - (UFO = UnFinished Objects)  I furnish either soup or salad.  Whoever doesn't have their project done brings a dessert.  Make a list of 6 projects you want to finish in 2020.  Call me or stop in with your list before the first meeting, and I will let you know which number you need to finish.  Our first meeting will be February 15th.  Lunch is at 12:00, but you can come early to shop or visit.  If you are interested, you can still join by coming to the first meeting on February 15th with a list of five projects you want to finish this year.  If you haven't signed up, please let me know that you are coming, so I have enough soup for everyone.

2020 Quilt retreats - Cost is $250.00 for three nights, 5 meals, 1 kit.  Retreat spaces are filling fast.  Pay the deposit to hold your spot.  If you are thinking of attending, please call for availability and possibly be placed on a waiting list.   Quilt retreat openings - There's still a few openings in the 2020 Quilt Retreats; ask me about date availability.  Dates of the retreats are April 16, 17, 18, and 19; April 23, 24, 25, 26; October 1, 2, 3 and 4; October 15, 16, 17, 18; and October 23, 24, 25, 26.  Cost is $250.00.  Each retreat includes 3 nights at the Barnsion, 5 meals, prizes, and 1 kit.  For those of you who have signed up for April retreats, please have your deposits to me by March 1.  I will be sending a separate email to those of you who have pre-registered.
  My quilt retreats are held at The Barnsion, five miles east of Harlowton.  It's a wonderful facility, with bedding and towels furnished.  2020's quilt retreats are 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.

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.

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 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.
