Fantastic Fabric Party @ Sew & Sew Quilts in Stanley WI

Sew and Sew Quilts and Fabrics in Stanley, Wisconsin is planning a Fantastic Fabric Party for Saturday, May 21, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Timbers Restaurant in Stanley.  Mark your calendar now and plan to attend!

Sandi Irish, a Fabric and Pattern Designer for Blank Quilting Fabrics will present her black and white “Doo Dads” line of fabrics and her assortment of templates and patterns.  Next, Sandy will describe how to attain perfect mitered corners, and present a trunk show of her quilts.  We can’t wait to see the beauties she’ll share!  Check out Sandi’s website at http://www.irishchain.com/about.html.

After a salad luncheon at Timbers Restaurant, we’ll be treated to a preview of the newest fabrics from Blank Quilting Fabrics by Shawn and Steve Taylor, Sales Reps from Blank Quilting Fabrics for both Minnesota and Wisconsin.  We’ll be able to order from their fabric line that day and pick up the fabric at Sew and Sew Quilts and Fabrics two weeks later.  Check out this dynamic duo and the Blank product line at http://www.blankquilting.com/home.aspx.
                                             
Next, “shop till you drop” at Sew and Sew Quilts and Fabrics located just a few miles south of Stanley!  Browse our complete selection of fabrics, patterns, and quilting supplies. 

A limited number of seats are available for this Fantastic Fabric Party, so clear your calendar now and plan to attend.  The $25 admission fee includes the presentations, demos, trunk show, and lunch at Timbers.  Contact Donna Haas at Sew and Sew Quilts and Fabrics for tickets before April 30.  Sorry, no refunds after May 1. 

Please help us spread the word by sharing this info with your quilting friends and local guild.  Any friends who’d like to become members of the Sew and Sew Quilts and Fabrics email community are encouraged to email Donna Haas at djhaas@centurytel.net and ask to be added to the group!

CARING QUILTS
 We will be tying caring quilts before our regular meeting on March 10th. We will start at three o'clock and finish about six, this will give us time to clean up before the meeting. Last time we tied six quilts so let’s try and beat that number. I do have six ready to tie, so if anyone has a top ready at their home call me with the size and I will get a batting [and back if needed] ready.
Hope to see you at three. Thank you everyone for what you do.  Betty

Hostesses are:
Cindy Peer
Pegi Fleming
Sandy Balcerek
Tara Van Epherem-Waldorf
