Welcome February...okay, it's already more than half-way through February!
Sorry for the delay in getting out this newsletter.
It seems like I've spent all my free time behind a snow blower this month!
I hope everyone has been able to spend at least a few hours in front of your sewing machines!
What better way to spend a snow day than sewing, right?
Our Free Block Swap is a Green and White Strip-Twist block this month!
Stop in to receive your free pattern or print out the pattern below.
Remember, every block you turn in earns your name in the jar to possibly win all the blocks!
Our February winner was Suzy Gamma! Can't wait to see her finished heart block quilt! No pressure, Suzy!
The Strip Twist Drawing will be held on March 15.
As I did with the previous swaps, I will video tape the drawing and put it on Facebook!
Make sure you check out our Cuppa Tea Quilting Facebook page to see if you have won!

In the beginning of February we began the MUSE Block of the Month program. There are TWENTY people participating in this program! That is outstanding! So far we have completed the four center blocks. We will meet again on Monday, March 4 or Wednesday, March 6th. We will mostly be cutting our blocks as we have EIGHT to make this go around. You can bring your sewing machine if you wish, but I would leave it in the car until you need it. Last time everyone was just cutting and learning how to use their Goddess tools!
We still have a few Brown Bags left at the shop! The bag costs $5 to become a member of our "Brown Bag Club", every time you use it, you receive 10% off the contents of the bag!!
