Marvelous Mathilda - A Gastlies Event

Marvelous Mathilda and Friends Paper Piecing Class Party
Saturday October 13,  11-3
Class Fee: $30
Instructor: Linda Bryant

Pssst!  Look!

It's a class?  Or a Party? 
It's a little of both!  Join us as we celebrate the arrival of our beloved Gastlies fabric with a special Coffin Hexie paper piecing class.

Carla will transform the classroom into Matilda's parlor just for this class and will have aculdron full of surprises.

Linda Bryant will be the guest of honor as she guides students with tips and tricks for paper piecing, whether you are piecing coffins or other hexies.

She will demo how to do a good portion of the piecing by machine rather than hand - a nice treat for those of us whose hands don't cooperate as well a they once did.  You do not need to bring a machine .... we will have some set up for you!

To sign up now, call the Mathilda's special novice, Carla.  And stay tuned for more information as the date creeps closer.

Samples coming soon..................

QUILT MARKET - Sample Quilt Sale Friday July 6 to Sunday July 8

So many have asked "do you sell your quilts?"  I've always smiled and said no, I can't part with them yet.

Well after 16 years, yes it will be 16 years in September, I am finally ready to move them to a new home.  Don't worry, I saved my favorites, and tried to save more, but my friends won't let me............  I just can't hoard them any more!

So far we have cataloged over 150 quilts!  Oh and there are still more!  We are still looking in every nook and cranny to find them .......

So what will you find in the "Quilt Market?"  All shapes and sizes, colors, themes, such as Thimbleberries, children's, lap, Laurel Burch, Batiks........... did I mention we have over 150?  Also lots of handbags, and small items too!  It was like going thru history looking through all the boxes and boxes of hidden jems!

So here are the details of our big Quilt Sale!

Quilters Loft Closed Today!

I hope you enjoyed the beautiful snowfall we had yesterday.  In Mooresville we got 6 inches!  Needless to say we are closed due to the snow. 

Here is a view from my backyard.  Isn't it lovely!  My driveway is so steep, I won't be going anywhere today!  I took the pups in the backyard to see how they liked the snow.  Trigger loved it and ran around like a wild man ...... Callie, not so much.  She wanted to get back in to play with her ball.  She is all about the ball and doesn't care for the snow!

We will reopen tomorrow as I am sure the roads will be good after all this beautiful sunshine.

Enjoy your day!  If you have to be out and about, please be safe!

Thursday morning sunshine!
