Busy time for Quilter's Pantry.  

I'm making more items to have for sale on line and at the quilt show. I was also scheduling studio appointments for customers. One to discuss details of longarm work on her quilt. Another for checking out the Nolting Longarm machine as she is looking to purchase one!  

Yes, if you are thinking of getting a longarm machine and want to discuss a Nolting... give me (and my husband) a call.  We can arrange for you to stop in and see how mine works and even try it out. 

If you are interested in adding the Side Saddle   computer system to your longarm... you can make an appointment to check that out as well.  AND once you have purchased a Side Saddle.... call me to take one or tow of my classes to learn how to use it.

in the mean time......
Just a couple of weeks left before the 2015 quilt show. Are you setting your GPS to come join us? 
Gather your friends and make a day of it!

Pictured is just a sample of what I had for sale last year.
(Those items pictured may have been sold....but there'll be more!)

I will have more fabric baskets this year, some microwaveable fabric bowls, fabric, and of course my quilts. 

And.... more ornaments!   

So.... til next time .... 
Keep those needles stitching, 
those sewing machines humming, 
your creative juices flowing.

It 's that time of year again. 

Spring has arrived.

 The sun was out shinning brightly. The temperature outside allowed the doors and windows to be open and the fresh air to flow through the house. 

The studio got a make over of sorts today with a bit of rearranging. Amazing how just switching a desk, a pattern cabinet, a file cabinet and a book shelf around (while keeping them against the same wall) added so much more space to the room.  Added the first quilt (wall hanging) I ever made to the wall decor as well. Still have more organizing to do to make the room more pleasing to my eye and the eyes of my customers. I don't work well with a lot of clutter. 

It's also that time of year to prepare for our guild's quilt show coming up April 10 -11, 2015. I'm looking forward to the show this year. Meeting new people, seeing new quilts, enjoying the fellowship of other quilters. Introducing those who don't quilt to our wonderful world of quilting. 

If you are in the area, or want a road trip..... set your calendars for April 10 - 11, 2015!  Stop by the Quilter's Pantry booth and say hello. 

Looking for a longarm?  Stop in at the show and try out a Nolting Longarm!  They will be set up at the show right next to me! 

Til next time...

Keep those needles stitching, 

Those threads snipped
Your creative minds creating!
