Thank you so much to everyone who has stopped by the shop either to take a class, rent a machine,
or simply take a look around! It has been so fun greeting new quilting friends and getting to
spread my love of quilting with the Newport Community.
Don't forget to turn in your "Wonky Tree Block". Every block you turn in earns your name in the jar to possibly win all the blocks! So far there are 22 turned in!

Our first round of classes was very successful...we had jellyroll rugs being made, three "fold and sew" throw quilts completed, and several beginner paper pieced blocks created! What fun it is to see you all learn new techniques and create some beautiful projects! The New Year will bring more classes and a repeat of some classes that you missed. We will have a pillow making class on January 3 from 5-7pm or January 15th from 1 to 3pm. In this class you will get your hands on all three of the long arms in the shop and create a unique pillow on each machine! Look for the shop samples in our classroom area!
Make Your Own Tshirt Quilt Class being offered on Monday, Jan. 14 from 2:30-4:30. $20 includes instruction and materials to prepare a couple of your own Tshirts. You will learn how to prep the shirt for easier handling. We will discuss layout ideas as well as viewing samples for various sashing and border ideas. Sign up online or in the shop.
Don't forget to pick up your Brown Bag at the shop and become a member of our "Brown Bag Club". The bag is $5 and every time you use it, you receive 10% off the contents of the bag!! How cool is that?
Look for our shop to be EXPANDING after the New Year!! Stefane, the yarn gal, and I will be joining together to take over the space next to my current shop. There will be more classroom space as well as new products to suit the scrapbooker in the family! We are currently ordering scrapbooking supplies to keep those memories and stories flowing. We will have classes not only in quilting, but in card making, scrapbooking and knitting as well! What a fun place to hang out and be creative! Spread the word...Cuppa Tea Quilting is expanding!!
Well, that's it for 2018...I want to wish you all a fabulous holiday season. In celebration, the Alice's Wanderland Mall will be closed beginning Dec. 25th until Jan. 2. Spend time with your loved ones doing what you love! May Santa bring you something quilty under your tree this year. If you need to send a hint...let him know that we have gift certificates in any amount you choose!!
Merry Christmas to you all,
