This being Montana, hours are as above unless it is blizzarding, in which case I will be home with a good book or jigsaw puzzle.  Any day that we have weather like we had December 21st, we will not be open.  We had below zero, blizzard conditions, plus all the roads in Harlowton were closed.  We really haven't had much snow on the ground here, though there has been ice and snow all around us in January.

SPECIALS - Regularly priced fabric (minimum 1 yard cuts), kits not already on sale, pre-cuts, and sewing notions over $10.00 - will be 20% off through the month of February.  If you pay with cash or a check, you will receive an additional 5% off. (total 25%)  Finish a bolt of SALE fabric and it is half off (50%) the original price.

AccuQuilt specials - Ask about these.  Lots of new dies.  We will match any special AccuQuilt is offering.

AccuQuilt news - Have you been thinking about a GO! Cutter or wondering how they work?  Schedule a test drive session at Diana's Quilts-n-Things.  Kits will be available to make a table runner for $15.00.  At the store, you will use the GO! Cutter to cut your pieces, then sew them right away, or take them home to sew.  The cost is just the price of the fabric, and you will leave with a basic knowledge of how the cutters work.  Find out if it is right for you.  This is a "test drive" for me also, so plan on an hour to an hour and a half of personal help.
  Want to try the GO! Cutter on your own project?  Come in, bring your project's ironed fabric, and cut your project.  Rental is $10.00 per hour.  You will purchase your own mat for the dies you use.  You can use any of the dies I have open.  If you then decide that you want your own GO! Cutter, I will deduct the cost of the rental fee +and+ the cost of any mat you may have purchased.  Consider it a mini class for $10.00+.

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.

NEWS
Quilt Retreats for 2023:  Cost remains at $250 for three nights at the Barnsion, outside of Harlowton, 3 breakfasts, two evening meals, a special small project, and lots of fun.  Towels and bedding are furnished.  To guarantee your spot, a deposit of half the fee is required.  I may be reevaluating the cost after the first of the year, depending on food prices.  Vaccination is required.
Dates:  In 2023, April 13 - 16, waiting list available.  If you received my email because you were on the list, you know I am requiring a deposit by March 1st.  If you would please let me know if you are attending, I do have people anxiously waiting to see if they will be included in this retreat.  Thanks.
October 12 - 15, waiting list; October 19 - 22 has spots available.  I do have 2024 dates too.

My Mystery Mailing started in January 2021 and continues.  Each mailing includes $60.00 to 70.00 worth of goodies.  If mailed, the cost will be $50.00, or you may pick your bundle up at the store for $42.00.  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.  Even though postage increased in January, I haven't raised the cost.

CLASSES
No group classes scheduled.  I was hoping that would change, but right now there is a lot of respiratory stuff out there.
Personal instruction in GO! Cutter use - see above.  Appointment is recommended.

STORE PROCEDURE:
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.

MASK POLICY
We welcome masked shoppers to browse Diana's.  Click here for mask policy details and accommodations.  It would help me to have advance notification if you have a group of 4 or more.  Right now, I am still short-handed, which gives you more time to look around, until I can help the next person.

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.

April featured a Paper Pieced table runner for Mother's Day.

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.
