We just finished Spring Quilt Market, and are reflecting on all of the fabulous things we found! Books, patterns, techniques, rulers, fabric, gadgets….how do they keep coming out with so many wonderful things to engage our creative side? It makes us thankful to have so many great people to share it with, like you, our favorite customers.          

       We finalized our trunk show schedule; we have some great ones on board! Stop in often to see the newest!

      
         It is hard to believe that Summer is only a month away. And just like summer, ‘Row by Row Experience’ is back! This year’s theme is “On the Go”. Be sure to visit as many shops as you can to see these special “Rows” between June 21 and September 5. It’s always fun to see the creative ideas!

       Next month our special ‘Pony Express’ fabric will be arriving. Come help us celebrate this important part of American history!

       Our annual Rocky Mountain Quilt Fever Shop Hop is just around the corner. The theme this year is ‘Sew Inspirational’. You will love the exclusive fabrics that the group designed for this special event! Join in the fun from Aug 3-6. For more information visit www.rockymountainshophop.com

       We have a very full schedule of classes and clubs, so be sure to sign up soon for the one or two that will inspire you!

 

Have a ‘Pieceful’ day,

Jean, Karen, and the wonderful girls at

High Country Quilts

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!
