What's New


The weather is changing, and now is the perfect time to snuggle up in front of your sewing machine and be your creative best. We are here to help you explore all of the new possibilities by offering the very latest in classes and events.

If you have never attended a SEWAPALOOZA (or even if you have), you are in for a treat! It is a fun-filled day of hands-on projects and techniques that you won't want to miss!

HCQ is offering some great new Block of the Month programs and classes that you are sure to fall in love with. There is something for everyone.

Get your spy glasses out for Michelle's brand new Mystery Club. We've promised not to reveal the secret, but it is terrific.

Speaking of "secrets", we can't keep this one any longer. Bernina's Longarm quilting machine is due to arrive any day. Come in and see why we're so excited!

"Embroidery-to-go" is back by popular demand. Join Karen and Jean once a month to make wonderful little 2-hour projects in the hoop.

Moving day is almost here. We are planning to be in our new location by the end of March. Watch your e-mails; we'll keep you posted.

Speaking of moving, we are planning a HUGE MOVING SALE! Mark your calendars for March 3rd and 4th. It is sure to be our biggest sale of the year.

Looks like we've run out of room, so turn the page and read more about all we have to offer.

After 31 years in business, we wouldn't be here without you, our loyal customers and friends. We want to thank each and every one of you for your continued support. It is truly heartwarming and appreciated.

Have a 'pieceful' year,
Jean, Karen, and the Wonderful Staff here at High Country Quilts.

We have had many requests from those of you who find it hard to stop in during regular business hours. So, we decided to turn the 3rd Thursday of every month into "Pizza Night". From 6pm - 9pm you can come shop and/or sit and sew. No time for dinner? No problem! Contribute just $5 and join us for pizza and a cold drink.

 

FAVORITE QUILTING TIPS

Quick Tips:

Use a new dryer sheet to clean the bottom of your hot iron.

When threading a needle, don’t moisten the tip of your thread. Instead, run your finger down the length of your needle.

Use a new bath scrubby to ‘clean’ unwanted threads from your self-healing mat. This is especially helpful after cutting up batting!

Cut out large pieces from a flannel-backed vinyl tablecloth and roll it up to store quilt blocks and unroll it when you’re ready to work on it.
 


Bag Ladies

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!
