HANDI QUILTER Event info! PURSES! Garden Club!

Sue Patten is coming!
We are going to give you some information about 2 of the classes for our Handi Quilter event on Friday, August 11 and Saturday, August 12.  Remember, you do not need to own a quilting machine to attend.  Sue will be teaching lots of techniques that can be implemented on a standard machine also.

Class #1 -
Stepping Stones to Quilting Your First Quilt: ($40)
This class is for EVERYONE - whether you've never quilted and want to learn, or if you already quilt.  This overview covers the step-by-step process, from selecting a quilting design to the first quilting stitches.  You will learn how to resize and apply designs, choose batting and backings, baste quilt tops, and all about threads, needles and tension.  You will be on your way to finishing your quilts!

Start Simple, Expand to Amazing!:  ($40)
Begin with a basic design from a stencil, a ruler or template, an applique, a design in a piece of fabric, or even a shape you draw yourself - then transform and expand that design from basic to spectacular.  Add extended and secondary designs, repeats, fills and special effects.  Learn marking techniques and tools for applying designs to quilt tops.

Sue Patten, an award-winning longarm quilter, will be teaching the classes.  We are so excited to have someone with so much knowledge and experience come and teach at Quilter's Garden.  Call 815-879-3739 to reserve your seat today!

This adorable purse, Busy Body, will be offered as a class on Thursday, June 29.  We love the cork accent fabric. Join Nicole for a FUN day of learning.  You know if you are with Nicole, you will be laughing.  Cost is just $15 and remember our summer special is take 2 classes and get 1 FREE.

We just finished this tote, Kona Carryall.  It has an accent of cork also.  This bag would be perfect for our trip to Branson!  We must admit, we are bag ladies here at Quilter's Garden.  You can never have enough!

Don't forget, GARDEN CLUB is next week Tuesday, June 13 at 10 AM or 6 PM OR Wednesday, June 14 at 10 AM.  No need to call ahead, just show up.  Isn't it great to belong to a group you won't be asked to be on a committee or be president?  Yes, we think so too!

This week's block is Delilah.  If you are just joining us on this adventure, you can copy all of the previous patterns on Facebook HERE!.  You can also pre-order a CD which includes the whole 40 weeks of patterns for just $9.99.  The 9.99 CD will be available at the end of this series.  After the series is finished, the CD will be $19.99.  Call the store at 815-879-3739 to reserve your copy today!  To get your free pattern, CLICK HERE!
