Worldwide Quilting Day
The Fabric Shop celebrated 30 days to "Wrap the World in Stars" starting on Worldwide Quilting Day March 15th.
We had a great turnout for the celebration when our customers made approximately 200 star blocks for support these efforts: The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, The Quilts of Valor Foundation, and The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Quilters made blocks and earned $1 bonus bucks from the shop to spend in the future. The more blocks they made the more $$ they earned.
We are waiting for our winners to be announced for the star contest and we will be announcing them as soon as we get the voting results from TheFabShopNetwork which sponsored the event.
Stay tuned to get the results shortly!!! Good Luck to all who
We had a great time on Saturday, January 25th, 2014 when 40 gals came together for the charity sew at The Fabric Shop to celebrate our 2nd Annual "Visit Your Local Quilt Shop" Day. This year's charity sew is the Quilts of Valor Foundation and we sewed a total of 320+ patriotic blocks to be made into quilts and given to combat veterans. We have enough to make 4 more quilts, Yeah ladies!!
Everyone participated from sewing, pressing, squaring up or cutting strips. As one of only two Quilts of Valor Tennessee quilt shops, we would like to thank everyone for all of their efforts as well as coming out to sew on a bitterly cold day. A good time was had by all! The Robertson County Times covered the event and Smokey Barn News did some terrific interviews of the receipents. See the video at Smokey Barn News.com
Above are just a few pictures throughout the day: Denise Sorro-Butler displaying her completed quilt block, Muffy Arrington putting blocks on the design wall, Ginger Fondren, Donna Sandidge, and Brenda Nixon showing off a completed quilt and the 3 veterans receiving their Quilts of Valor. Go to our Quilts of Valor page on this website for more pictures and the story of our 3 veteran receipents.
We have a great selection of new classes and new teachers for you this winter and we hope that you can take one of our classes in the newly designed classroom with lots of room, individual sewing stations, LOTS of light, and ironing and cutting stations. We hope you enjoy our offerings.
New classes such as Learn to Hand Applique, and Learn to Hand Quilt with the prominent Irene Andrews, a National Quilting Association master quilter; The Chameleon Quilt; The Hexi-Harmony Quilt; Decorative Pillow Making Class; and The Mondo Bag-rescheduled, plus our popular Learn to Serge, Learn to Sew and Learn to Quilt basic classes are back again by demand!
Please let us know if there is any particular class that you would like to see and we will do our best to hold that class, if possible. All classes have a minimum of 4 students in order to schedule the classroom and teacher. So encourage your friends to join in the fun with you - the more the merrier.
We have Quilts of Valor kits are available for purchase at the shop. These kits meet the size and type requirements of the Quilts of Valor Foundation. We have these kits at a special price for our customers who would like to sign up to make a Quilt of Valor and participate in honoring our combat and combat-related veterans.
