Hello, Everyone! 

Well, Fall is upon us and a few special blooms have been cheering up my spent gardens. Kind of a last hurrah. Sad, but I know the season changes bring on new challenges for me. Retreat season is here with our first beginning this Thursday! I am in need of a few more days to prepare myself, and that doesn't include tomorrow or Wednesday... But that seems to be the case every event we take part in. That's just part of the game I play. Time to get busy and jump in with both feet! Ready or not, here I come! 

Fall is a great time to revamp my sewing room. Time to pause and take a true inventory of what I can work on at retreats, or just simply needs to get finished for a Guild UFO. The closets are full, and have been for years, but sometimes I just forget what treasures I have behind closed doors! Maybe this year, I can make a list of projects set aside that haven't made it to my UFO lists. Challenge accepted, maybe after I get this first retreat under my belt! 

Upcoming events... September 10th~ Top Your Table Club- We will be featuring various projects from the Trendy Table 2 book by Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures! Meetings to begin at 5:30pm the second Tuesday of each month. Join us for some fun as we showcase a runner/kit each month, check out all of the "new" fabrics and notions to come in, find new inspiration in each other's show and tell, eat some dessert, have a chance at winning door prizes, and shop after hours with a discount! Cost to join is the purchase of the Trendy Table 2 book from Designer Fabrics! 

September 12th~ Jim/Luke from Sewing Machines Plus will be here for machine service! 

September 12th-15th~ Crystal Springs Retreat

September 17th~ Carrington Quilt Guild 

September 21st~ National Sew a Jelly Roll Day! Stop in before the 21st and pick out a jelly roll and a book or pattern and get 30% off your jelly roll! We will be sewing ours on Sunday the 22nd at the shop!! I have the ball ready for a Jelly Roll Rug and am loving the process so far! The right tools really make a difference!! 

September 24th~ Designer Quilt Club- Meetings to begin at 6:00pm the LAST Tuesday of each month. Cost for the year is $19.00. "Cook's Choice" theme for this year... It could be a little bit of this, or a little bit of that... But mostly a whole lot of fun!!

Hello, Everyone! 

Well, where do I begin... Sorry this email is getting out a week later than anticipated... My Alex ended up with a partially collapsed lung a week ago Saturday and I met him at the hospital in Fargo as I was at mom's for my class reunion since Friday. Since then I have been sitting in the hospital with him, or fetching food for us, and staying in a hotel almost every night. We are hopefully turning a corner and getting sprung tomorrow morning after the x-ray gets read and the doctors make their rounds. Thankfully, Todd brought my laptop down so I could try to get some work done when things were quiet, of which didn't happen until today after his chest tube was pulled. He is resting comfortably and I can be pretty quiet. Poor kid... Good thing I didn't know what I wanted to wear to the reunion as I packed extra clothes... I did manage to go to mom's one night and wash clothes so I could last the rest of the duration, but I'm running out once again. It will be good to get home. Todd has been holding down the fort, when he hasn't been down here, with picking an overabundance of veggies for me to tackle when I get home. So, if you are in need of slicing cucumbers and can pick them up at the shop, let me know... he's been picking a 5 gallon bucket every couple of days! He's getting the beans ready for me to can maybe on Wednesday if time allows... And don't get me started on the zucchini! 

Thank you to everyone who picked up all my slack at the shop and didn't skip a beat so I could be here... I owe you all!! 

Upcoming events... August 6th~ Stop in and pick up your #12 Block of the Month step! Bev would like to have a demo/talk about the remaining steps of the quilt at 4:30.*********Note Time Change!!! and ***Designer Quilt Club will be meeting at 6:00

Hello, Everyone! 

Figured I'd better get this going this morning early as I have a trip to the vet in store for me after dinner... Finn can't get up as easily as she used to. So it's time to take her in and see what's up. Just last week she was acting a bit peculiar when I would go out for walks. She would lay down on the road at the beginning of the walk and be there when I came back. The week before she went for walks and one in particular, came home and dropped two duck eggs at the end of the driveway. Who knows how far she carried them! They were in tact until she scooped them up and dropped them on the gravel the second time. "Look what I found!!" staring me in the face with her tail a wagging... 

Jake still goes with me sniffing out everything along the way, but I see him looking back wondering if Finn is catching up. Today she doesn't even want to stand. Poor thing. I called the vet and they thought maybe the start of arthritis. I can so relate. Let's hope that it is something treatable. The pups will be 8 years old July 13th and are brother/sister. Oh, and speaking of birthdays... my Alex turns 26 today!! Bah humbug!! I'm getting old...

Hello, Everyone! 

Hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day! Remembering the reason for the season today & every day. Thank you to all those who gave up their lives to keep us safe and let us live our everyday lives! You are not forgotten. 

With Summer nipping at the heels of Spring, hopefully the weather can make up it's mind soon. So far anything outdoors for me has been on hold, and my time has been spent quilting or planning for this Summer's events! Which isn't all bad. I did manage to finish a couple of projects for my niece's graduation and crammed in a quilt club project recently... It's only going to be downhill from here (Ya right), maybe for May. As the calendar gets ready to turn another page, the roller coaster begins for another month, and I've been trying to incorporate some "Special Days" into our lineup.

Hello, Everyone! 

Back from Fargo... what a great show! We had a little hiccup with the laptop crashing before Saturday's opening, so I am behind the eight ball trying to get my old laptop up and running and equipped with everything I need to run this ship. Today has been a bit frustrating and rewarding... All of my new to come pics I saved once upon a time didn't get transferred to the USB stick so I have had to redo everything that has come into the shop the last couple of weeks. On the other hand, I was able to retrieve all of Friday's transactions from the Fargo Show! Whew! I was beginning to have the girls start to do inventory on each department so we could get them up to date in the shop. Ugh! I am very thankful for my computer minded son of mine for having the knowledge and capability of getting my hard drive information off the crashed laptop! I am not tech savvy, and am challenged severely when things don't work. I still have several things to get back up and running, but I'll tackle them as they are needed. For now, we will concentrate on keeping up with the fabrics that are flowing into the shop over the next month or so... If you didn't get a chance to check out our latest samples/kits at the Fargo Show, stop in as it may be a bit until I get them uploaded to the website. I first need to find/retake all of the pictures. Wish me luck! 

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!!

Meetings to begin at 5:30pm the second Tuesday of each month.

Cost to join is the purchase of the Trendy Table 2 book from Designer Fabrics! 

May 21st~ Carrington Quilt Guild- Don't forget to bring your Bag Lady Challenge blocks! Also, for those of you participating in the Kit Swap Game, please bring a pre-made or stash-made quilt kit (at least 50" x 60" with the pattern included) either wrapped or in a brown paper bag. Remember your dues for the year (if you haven't paid them), UFO's for show & tell, and $3 to play our game... We will be meeting around 6:15ish at the shop! 

May 28th~ Designer Quilt Club- We will be back at it once again! Meetings to begin at 6:00pm the LAST Tuesday of each month. Cost for the year is $19.00. "Cook's Choice" theme for this year... It could be a little bit of this, or a little bit of that... But mostly a whole lot of fun!!

Hello, Everyone! 

April Fools!! Let's hope this will be the finale of late Winter for 2019... 

On a better note... we have been busy bees at the shop readying ourselves for the Fargo Show this weekend!! New samples are getting crossed off my list every day! I would love to finish at least two more samples before I head out, but I haven't even started them. And with Quilt Club tomorrow, the chances are getting slim.

Hello, Everyone! 

Sounds like Spring is in a holding pattern for this week... So out for a walk a couple of times I went today. I was hoping the colors of the sky would be as awesome as I saw them in real life! What a difference a week makes. We still have some huge snow mounds in the yard and tree rows, but they are shrinking. Yay! Now if the weather stays south of us. I may need to go somewhere there is better weather if it gets close... Richardton, you'd better have good weather!! 

With a couple of retreats taking up my time away from the shop, I did a bit of Spring cleaning as promised and there is a bigger collection in the clearance! Tomorrow or Wednesday I have plans to add more bolts back there too! We have tons of new fabric coming in and I need more empty shelves to accommodate them!

New into the shop...
Limoncello
New in... A lovely group from Benartex! They have a bit of pearl shimmer to them also for an added bonus! Also in are a few pieces of Dragonfly Dance from Benartex! 

A few new bolts of Later Alligator from Sandy Gervais for Moda. 

And we just can't seem to have enough basics... so new in are a few bolts of Concrete also from Moda. 



Vibrant Garden
A couple of pieces that caught my eye were from this group by Lynnea Washburn for Robert Kaufman. Whether you keep the panel whole, or pick up several and make yourself a stunning stack & whack quilt, you can't go wrong!! 

Also from Robert Kaufman, new batiks


Little One 2
This sweet group of nostalgia is sure to make a child's favorite quilt! Odd story on this group as I was entering it online... In elementary school, I had a classmate- Rebecca Baer. I remember her well as we were a couple of the youngest in the class with Summer birthdays. She moved somewhere in the years before junior high and we lost contact. Fast forward to a few years ago, through Facebook, I was in touch with her once again. Sadly, she had a tragic accident and is gone. The designer of this Little One 2 group is also Rebecca Baer. I'm grateful for the reminder of the memories of her that I keep. 


Fat Quarter Bundles
And last but not least, bundles and pre-cuts of all kinds!! 




Have a great week!! 

Until next time, Happy Quilting!! Jackie

Hello, Everyone! 

Well, vacation is over... Time to get back into the real world and retreat-mode! Paperwork and bindings have been on my counter for the last week and I'm tackling as much as I can. New samples are in the shop, taxes are done, pattern is written for tomorrow, the sun is shining... It's going to be one get-r-done kind of a week! It's amazing what a little sunshine can do for the soul. 

I'm in the mood to do a bit of Spring Cleaning! At home and at the shop... Maybe this week will be your lucky week to find new treasures in the clearance at the shop. I need to make room for the NEW arriving!! Stop in and check it out!
