July Newsletter 2021
Summer is in full swing and there is no chance of things slowing down! We are beginning the second month of the All Iowa Shop Hop. There's still plenty of time to check out the wonderful quilt shops spread throughout our beautiful state.
Mark your calendars for the Scraps Happen Shop Hop on August 5-7. Seven shops are participating and you will receive a free pattern from each shop that features a way to use up your stash. Check out our website for full details.
Camp Quiltmaker will be offered again on Monday, July 19, from 9-11 am. Any child aged 8-14 is welcome to attend with an accompanying adult. The cost is $5.00 for the student plus the cost of the kit with the needed supplies for a hand sewing project. There is no charge for the adult. This month Lori will be teaching beginning English paper piecing. Call the shop to reserve your spot.
Are you ready for another mystery sew-along? We're kicking off our Mystery Mini Sew Along on July 16 . The cost is $30 for the six month program. You will receive patterns for two blocks each month which can be used as stand alone projects for a small frame or put the 12 blocks together into a quilt. The patterns can be picked up on or after the third Friday of each month. The challenge for the sew along is that this is a TWO COLOR mystery. This means that you choose your background color (Color #1) and one main color (Color #2). You may use many variations of Color #1 and Color #2- BUT the quilt should primarily consist of TWO colors. You will be asked to declare your main color (Color #2) Call the shop or stop in to reserve your spot! 563.927.8017.
