Also featured will be a Quilt Show from ThreadBenders, a group of fiber artists from southeastern Wisconsin. Together for a few years, they are very excited about creating fiber art, encouraging each other and exhibiting their work. This year's show will feature a Photo Inspiration: Door is their first "large" challenge. They number under 20 members and had 13 quilts made for the challenge. Eight of their challenge quilts were selected to be entered in the "Ultimate Guild Challenge" contest held by AQS at their Grand Rapids show. These quilts will be in our shop. You're going to want to stop by and see. Members of the group will be on hand to talk about the quilts and the challenge.
Stargazing Block of the Month
Holy cow! Only two spots left! The stunning 13-month program will begin in January and finishes 92 x 92. Made with New Aged Muslins, this quilt will immerse you in the not quite solid muslins that give this project great movement. Made with easy piecing techniques, so it's even good for a confident beginner. The cost will be $15.95 per month.
Mrs. Miller's Apprentice Block of the Month
Sign up for this gorgeous Block of the Month beginning in February. Journey to the mid-19th century and read Mrs. Miller's diary, as she tells the story of meeting young Ellie who just moved into the neighboring farm with her widower father. When Ellie shows interest in learning to piece quilt blocks, Mrs. Miller takes Ellie under her wing, and not only teaches her to piece, but helps her learn many other housekeeping skills she will need to know. Each month you'll join them in creating a beautiful variety of sampler blocks, and read diary entries telling the story of their growing friendship. Even better, it's the perfect opportunity for you to share the gift of quilting with your own young protégé!
