Thimbles News – June 20th

Absolute Perfection!  That was the weather for the day and just as the weather,  we so want everything to be perfect in our quilt projects.  Some quilts you make are magic.  The selection of fabrics, design and construction of the quilt went together beautifully.  At the end of the project you absolutely love it, you don’t know why, but it sparkles and becomes your favorite.  For those projects you keep bringing out of the closet and try to get them going again, but they just don’t work,  bring it in as it’s time to make some changes, whether it be in the fabrics you’re trying to use or the design, we would be more than happy to assist you in getting this project out of the closet and into someones hands.

Only a few days left on the Wisconsin State Shop Hop.  Program ends 4pm on Saturday, June 25th.  You still have time to visit a few more shops in order to have your name entered into the drawings, but you may still purchase the fabric after the hop.

You’ve been waiting for it….the countdown begins…..the 2016 Row By Row – Home Sweet Home Program begins tomorrow June 21st.  Visit any participating shop and ask for their Row Pattern.  Most shops will also have kits to purchase.  Click on the WI license of the page where all Wisconsin shops are listed

Thimbles 11 year anniversary event – July 11th.  A free gift to all and we’ll be announcing a new summer “challenge” which you just don’t want to miss.  If you cannot make the event on the 11th, you’ll still be able to enter the challenge, but you will miss out on the cake.  Don’t forget your Thimblebucks.

New this year, we’ve added a Kids Sewing Camp – July 25th – 29th.  If you have a child 8-12 that is interested in learning to sew this is something they would love.  They’ll learn safety and each day will complete a project.              It’s 2-1/2 hours per day with a show and tell/pizza party on Friday.  Contact the shop for more information.

I’m going to get out and enjoy some of this beautiful weather.  Enjoy and hope to see you soon.
