September Newsletter 2021
As much as I love summer, I have to admit that I can't wait for fall to get here. The colors are beautiful and the weather is almost perfect. I love that chill in the air. It's perfect for campfires, football games and it's also a perfect time to get back into my sewing room to work on those quilts and projects for the upcoming holidays. We have new samples to tempt you all the time and you can tune in every Monday night at 7:00 on Facebook Live where we can share the new items at the shop. Please note that we will be taking September 6th off due to Labor Day. Enjoy this beautiful time of year! We look forward to seeing you soon.
Leanne and staff
Quilter of the Month
Meet Lorene Snyder! She is our newest Quilter of the Month! Lorene loves kits and is drawn to them by the colors and pattern of the samples at the various shops she likes to frequent to get her inspirations.
Lorene started sewing when she was a teenager and made her own clothing. She even made her own wedding gown! She started quilting about 15 years ago. She said that shortly after The Quiltmaker's Shoppe opened, she wandered in on a Saturday afternoon and came out hooked on quilting! She credits Kathy Wilgenbusch and the staff at the shop for teaching her to quilt!
She doesn't have a favorite pattern because she rarely makes something more than once but loves the Sewline Mechanical Pencil and the Quilter's Select rulers.
Be sure to stop in this month and check out the beautiful quilts in the window made by Lorene Snyder!
On September 14th, we're starting a new group called, Stitch and Sip. Bring along a favorite beverage and some handwork that has been waiting for you to complete. Sit around the table with other fun people and stitch and sip together from 6:30 - 8:30.
We will be closed on Monday, September 6th in observance of Labor Day.
