    After the hustle and bustle of the holidays are behind us, we are looking forward to a fresh new year and a beautiful spring! High Country Quilts is offering a variety of new classes as well as some comfortable old favorites. First on the list is the introduction of Level two of School of Embroidery, where we will continue to expand the embroidery experience.
     We have some great new Blocks of the Month to share with you! Harmony, the newest by Nancy Rink, ‘Hill Country Heritage’ by Red Crinoline, and ‘A Gathering’ by Barbara Pershing are just a few of our favorites.
     Machine Embroidery continues to excite us! ‘O Holy Night’, a beautiful new tiling scene by Dona Gelsiner, and ‘Tis the Season’ by Cherry Guidry are definitely at the top of our list. If you are in love with Applique, join Rachel as she travels through ‘Jo’s Floral Album’, a beautiful reproduction Block of the Month.
     Then there are some wonderful special events coming up. Donelle from ‘Westelee’ will be back with some great new ruler tips, and let Sandra help you discover your ‘sewing identity’ at BERNINA AcademyIII!

     If a new BERNINA is what you are looking for, don’t miss our Sweetheart of a deal, when all of our floor models will be offered at spectacular savings.
So, sit back and enjoy a quiet moment as you explore ‘What’s New’ in our world.

 

Have a ‘pieceful’ day,

Jean and Karen

Pizza Night

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!
