On the Go Quilting

[10/12/21]   Live coming up soon at 8!

Today I am taking a break from a large quilt top sample for a kit so I can work on a sample table runner from Trendy Table 3 by Heather Petersen. This book has so many great runners and toppers that I already have my next 3 samples from it picked out and preparing to have kits available.

Did you know during the whole month of October that KITS are 20% OFF??!?? If I have a kit made that requires a book such as this one you can save 20% on the book too! That would mean you can get this book for $18 plus tax. That is a steal when there are 15 pattern designs included!!

If you haven’t grabbed the Lunch Hour Patchwork book that I have some kits for you might want to hurry in before the month. Also if you buy any book or pattern and all the fabric for the top and the binding it is actually a kit so you can get the 20% off on it even if it wasn’t made and bagged!!

So many ways to take advantage of this great Special of the Month!!

Really would love to hear your response on what type of Club you would be interested in attending online or in person!! Comment with a letter of your choice!!

I would like all of you and myself to have a little bit more fun so I am going to add a couple groups pertaining to certain types of quilting and will do some challenges and weekly questions/polls/etc.
I am going to start with a Mini Quilt Club due to my love of sewing tiny pieces.
Please let me know if there is another type of Club you would like added next! It won’t let me do a poll so here are some suggestions:
A - Applique
B - Bags
C - Cross Stitch
D - Foundation Paper Piecing
E - Embroidery
F - Free Motion Quilting
G - Garments
H - Hand piecing
