Wow! High Country Quilts is 30 years old! Be sure to watch for unadvertised specials happening throughout 2013 in celebration of our great customers. We wouldn't be here without you.
We have lots of new projects to inspire you and some fun events to keep you laughing and stitching. As usual, we have innovative technique classes as well as new blocks of the months, some of which celebrate the history of our country.
We have some great new classes for you- machine embroidery enthusiasts. Hoop Sisters is back, with a lovely "Feathered Star" quilt... completely embroidered and quilted in the hoop. Stop in and check our new lines of embroidery designs by Purley Gates and Turnberry Stitches, as well as some returning favorites. We are also expecting a visit from Angie Stevenson of Lunch Box Quilts in March for a trunk show, lecture, and workshop.
And for you "globetrotters", we have two fun getaways just for you. We are in the planning stage of our 2014 Quilters Cruise. Keep tuned in for upcoming informational “get-togethers”. For 2013, we have a fun Mystery Retreat planned at the Hideaway. Join us for a week of fun, food, and stitching.
And now a class that some of you have been "expecting", the Stork Club, where we will be sewing useful accessories for" 9 months" while waiting for baby! All projects, from bibs to blankets, will be small and simple.
As dealers for both Bernina and APQS, we have never been prouder. Bernina's New 7 Series is not only big, but beautiful; and at a price point everyone can afford. APQS now has one of the most up to date computer systems on the market. Beautiful quilting is right at the tip of your fingers. Stop in for a complimentary test drive.
Come in and wish us "Happy Birthday"; we'd love to see you!
Have a 'pieceful' day,
Jean and Karen

FAVORITE QUILTING TIPS
Date: Fourth Thursday of the month................1pm - 4pm
Yes, even HCQ has Bag Ladies--Baltimore Album Group that is! The story is that this informal group first started getting together to make a Baltimore Album quilt. However, after that first ambitious project they continue to meet and focus on hand applique of any nature. Show and Tell of current projects is a favorite on their meeting agenda. All are welcome so please join us for fun!
