October is in the bag!
Hello from Comforts of Home,
I am wondering if we need to introduce ourselves? We zoomed through the rest of summer
and saw many of you at the Indian Summer Quilt Show in Fargo! Where did the time go?
We are working on making decisions for the Block of the Month Quilt for 2014, and are open to suggestions...
have you seen anything that just pops out or do you have a request what you would like to be considered?
Stop on in and give Mary or Trish your idea, we will compile them and bring it up at BOM soon!
When we think of what Fall brings, we can conjure up the picture of leaves turning amazing colors, and
the yard getting cleaned up for a long winter nap once the color gives way to snow, but doesn't that still seem so far away when we look out the window and the temps are still so warm?
When it comes time to also include quilting in the seasons equation, none of that seems so far away! In fact, if we have a wedding on the horizon, or plan on making a quilt for someone on the Christmas list, come on up to the shop and see the ideas we have for you if you haven't made a decision yet... fun patterns, fun fabrics.
Keep your eye on the Comforts of Home Calander as we are working on setting a date for Kary Finn from Blows in Fargo to come and demonstrate Free Motion Quilting using your home machine. Plus she will be bringing some machines to demostrate what is the latest and most popular on the market for Janome and Bernina!
This will be a class you need to sign up for and there will be a charge, but all of that is in the making, and class size will be limited so stay tuned for details!
Last, but not least, don't forget about the Central Dakota Plains Shop Hop!There are lots of fun prizes, and if you didn't get the information from the last newsletter, here's the "skinny" on it, because it starts NEXT WEEK!!
October 17-26th 2013 Central Dakota plains Shop Hop!
11 shops participating (including COH) and lots of fun prizes!
All shops will be open 9:00 am-6pm M-Fri, and 9-5 Saturday, except Carrington will be closed on Sat.
All participants need to visit at least 6 shops for the prizes, plus, you need to visit all 11 shops in order to be eligible for the Grand Prize of a Bernina 330 Sewing machine (value $1839.00!!)
Have fun with your sewing machine! If you don't like it, or you struggle with it more than you sew, come up and see what we have on hand for a new Janome machine! They run so smooth! You'll be glad you did!
Trish and Company
