New Class: Crazy Quilting by Machine - Zoom Class from your Home Thurs Sept. 24th 1:00 - 3:00
It's time for all of us to get a little crazy - crazy quilting with our machines! Learn how fast and easy it is to use our sewing machines to piece and embellish a crazy quilt block. In this session you will learn the importance of stabilizing your piece, seaming the block creatively, and how to use your decorative stitches in fun ways. In addition, we will explore creative button embellishments, machine ribbon work, and you will get a demo on how to bead with your machine!

It has been a challenge to get Baby Lock sewing machines due to the covid 19 and difficultly in getting parts/supplies needed from various sources. In addition, Baby Lock has seen a very, very, very large increase in machine sales. It is good news that sewers want our Baby Lock products but difficult for us to keep them in stock at the store.. In July, we sent a forecast of anticipated machine purchases thru December 2020. Orders placed in July should be shipping now....then August etc. If you are interested in a machine and have not notified us, please do. We are now forecasting machines needed for Jan 2021 - April 2021.
We still have lots of products in stock for making faces masks. You can find them on our website or in the store.
A generous customer has donated her fabric collection for charity. We are assembling fabric bags for face masks to donate to local schools and Quilt 4 U is providing elastic free-of-charge. If you are willing to assist, please contact us and we will have a bag ready for pick-up.
To date, we have donated to the following schools:
Blue Ridge Elementary 90
Derby Ridge Elementary 90
Christian Fellowship school 60 = 240 to date
Thanks for being a Quilt 4 U customer.
