WORKSHOPS

OUR WORKSHOP POLICY IS THAT ALL WORKSHOPS ARE PREPAID AND IF THERE ARE LESS THAN FOUR CONFIRMED PARTICIPANTS THE WORKSHOP WILL BE CANCELLED.  IF WE CANCEL THE WORKSHOP YOUR MONEY WILL BE RETURNED HOWEVER IF YOU DO NOT SHOW UP THERE WILL BE NO REFUND.   WORKSHOPS ARE SUBJECT TO HST.

Basic Sewing kit for most workshops:  sewing machine in good working order, sewing machine manual, thread, thread scissors, seam ripper just in case, tape measure, bobbins filled and ready to go, pattern, fabric, notebook, and pen.

Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes ahead of your scheduled time.  It may interfere with other activities in the workshop area.  Also it gives us time to make the coffee and tea and set up for your activity.  We appreciate your enthusiasm and will very much appreciate you thinking of us setting up for you

We will be meeting every otherish Sunday at 10:00 a.m. starting in Oct.16th, Oct. 30th, Nov 13th, Nov. 27th and Dec. 11th.  (Next dates will be determined when Liz buys her new calendar.  She is so excited about that!) Club fee is $15.00.  When we meet, if you have your previous meeting’s work completed your name will go into a draw.  Each meeting three names will be drawn and those people will win $10 BOEOW Bucks.  Those bucks are to be spent that day on regular priced merchandise. Even though, we have had our first meeting, you still have time to join in the fun and learning.  Those quilters be crazy on a Sunday morning!
    

Christmas Get together:  We like to take time to thank you for being with us as customers, friends, supporters and sometimes the person that gets us into a giddy frame of mind.  We will be hosting a Sunday afternoon tea to thank you for being so wonderful to us.  Please join us Sunday December 18th from 2:00 – 4:00.  This will also be the reunion for the recent Stained Glass The Easy Way workshop.

Annual trip to Camp Huronda near Huntsville.  This year we delivered 66 pillowcases but the camp had something for us.  We have some camp t-shirts to transform for them for next year. Thanks for your continued support.

Hobbs Heirloom Poly batting available by request.  In store we have a roll to cut from if you don’t require a full roll.

Every year I say I am not going to make these but many of you quite enjoy them and at the top of the list is Carl. So I would like to share this with all of you in case you would like to make them as well.
