Oct. 2016 newsletter

Bigfork Quilts, Etc.

October, 2016

 It is feeling a lot like Fall here. The trees are turning beautiful colors and the nights are cooler. I have to say I am enjoying the fact that the days are still warm.
 We have a light schedule so far this month which makes it a good time to schedule private or small group classes. If you have a desire to learn to sew or have a few friends that would like to sew together, call and schedule a time. Private classes are $10.00 per hour, minimum 2 hours.
  Please note we will be starting our winter hours mid-Oct. The shop will be closed Sundays and Mondays starting the 17th.
Thank you,
Sandi & Staff

Several of you have mentioned wanting to use the Sew Cherished ruler to create one of the quilts that use it. This is your chance to come to class and learn the technique. Shown are a few of Clara's blocks laid out. This ruler really makes curves easy!
Applique Basics and Beyond!
Sat. Nov. 5, *Monique* 10am-4pm, $40.00
 Fusible Appliqué Raw Edge/fusible Appliqué is a fun and simple way to create beautiful quilted pieces.  In this class, Monique will teach you her tips and tricks for using different types of fusibles, fabric choices to make your creation pop, and how to get comfortable stitching down your projects.  Students may bring any pattern or choose one of Monique's appliqué designs.  Already have a fusible project put together but now you're afraid to start stitching? Get that project out of the drawer/box/cupboard and let's play with thread!
I want everyone to know that we are doing our best to have all of the supplies needed for our classes. We intend to have patterns, fusibles, rulers, threads, needles, etc. If you do not have something at home already, please give us a call to see if we have it available.
