May Newsletter


Newsletter No. 7...May-June 2019
First off...I would like to welcome the new "Cuppa Tea Quilters" who joined us from the ASG Shop Hop!
I had 248 visitors during the three-day event which resulted in my best sales days since I have been in business! 
The tea cups were a big success and I have plenty left over to share with my Who Let the Girls Out event coming up on May 18th!

This has been a busy spring so far!  Quilt Shows, Shop Hops, Quilt Retreats...pretty soon it will be time for the Row x Row event!  I guess I better get started on the design that has been floating around my head for the past couple of months!

Don't forget to check out the display for the
High Country Crossing Quilt. 
This sample is on loan until mid-May, so make sure you check it out.  Lots of new fabric and flat folds in colors to create
this gorgeous western quilt. 


The May Block Swap is the Bright Log Cabin block. 
The center is made up of any yellow (solid or tone on tone). 
The "light side" is made up of whites and ivory prints or solids. 
The "dark side" can be any bright color...pinks, purples, greens, orange.
Come in and see the samples and grab your free pattern. 
So far there have only been a handful of blocks turned in...
The drawing will be held on May 10! 
Look for my awkward Facebook video to see if you are a winner!
Remember, every block you turn in earns your name in the
jar to possibly win all the blocks! 

Send me an email if you would like me to email you the pattern.


The Chewelah Quilt Show will be held on Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend at the Jenkins Senior high school. 
702 E. Lincoln Street, Chewelah.  Admission is $5. 
The shop will be closed at noon on May 24 and all day May 25
in order for me to be at the show.
I hope to see you there, it's a beautiful small town show!
