Let's Go Quilting!!

Greetings from Designer Fabrics

Hello, Everyone!

I have a new little nephew, Blayze, to add to the long list of August birthdays in our family!! It may be a little while before I get a chance to see him in person as my busy season is approaching and he is 9 1/2 hours away... (Pout) I'm hoping my sister keeps on sending me new pics each day! So, time to get his name on a few of the quilts and receiving blankets for him!! In between picking and canning vegetables around here, that may be my challenge this week. And with harvest in full swing, that means I have the house to myself to get things done!! Yay! I've been waiting all Summer for that to happen... It's absolutely gorgeous outside, so off I go to pick more work! ;-) Maybe even something for dessert for tomorrow night!!

All the NEW items into the shop & the Events reminders are being posted so you can keep track of us on Facebook! Just in case you don't have extra time to peruse the website & want a general overview of what has been happening!! I'll try & post pictures of our whereabouts when possible!!

Muslin Mates
One thing we were running low on, were white tone on tones. So we brought in several new pieces from Moda!!

Pumpkins For Sale
What a sweet group from Northcott!! Fall is on it's way... time to spruce up your Fall quilts!

Looking for a special gift for that special friend? Check out these lovely new tins from Moda! They are a set of three, so if you have your heart set on keeping one or two for yourself and filling the third one for a gift, you sure can!!

My Gray Or The Highway
And last but not least, a group from Camelot Fabrics that I fell in love with last Fall at market and had a hard time waiting for! Of course the designer has created a fabulous line of fabric! Her name is Jackie too!!

November 16th-19th, 2017

Come and join us for a relaxing weekend of quilting! Normal arrival is 9am Friday, but you are welcome to come Thursday after 1pm if you'd like. There will be an additional $30 cost for the night & no meals, so if you can swing it let us know! I know everyone is on a mission and a few extra hours may help make the difference in a finished quilt top!! Cost is $30.00 per night and $8.00 per meal. Sunday, most people leave around 3pm, but the staff won't kick you out if you have time to work on your quilts! If you’d like to join us just for the day, if we have room, the fee is $10.00 & any cost of meals you stay for. You plan your own weekend!! There are no organized classes, just bring your own unfinished projects to work on!! Everyone must have a few of those tucked away… If you are all caught up or need something new from your wish list, Designer Fabrics will have a shop set up!! Or if you need something from Designer Fabrics that you know of ahead of time, let us know & we'd be happy to bring it with (whether it is bolts, cut yardage, or special-ordering patterns & notions!). Nows your chance to work on your UFOs uninterrupted in a well lit, huge space! We sew in the dining hall (which holds 200 people), and save a few tables to eat on. Bring long extension cords and maybe your favorite chair! Some even have their own 4 foot tables to use for cutting mats or ironing... Believe me, quilters can pack a car!! And a trailer!!

Crystal Springs provides a cook for the following planned meal:
Friday~ Dinner at 12 noon-----Supper at 6:00pm
Saturday~ Brunch at 10:00am-----Supper at 6:00pm
Sunday~ Brunch at 10:00am
***We need a head count 2 weeks prior to each retreat. After that, we will not be able to change the count.***
***You will be charged for the meals you sign up for and will not be able to get a refund for not taking them.***

We also have a table or so for the "grazing buffet" of shared snacks (& please bring the recipe to share also)! Sleeping accommodations are dorm-style, with room for 100. So remember to bring a sleeping bag or bedding for a twin sized bed, pillow and toiletries.

This Retreat is limited to 34 people, so we are asking for a $50 non-refundable fee for holding your reserved spot. Remember... First come, first guaranteed. No exceptions, Reservations fill up fast!! If you don’t hear from us, we will see you there! We will let you know if you need to be put on the waiting list. This reservation fee will be deducted from your final cost, if you attend.

Any questions contact Jackie at or call 701-652-3535 from 10:00am-5:00pm weekdays.
