Signs of fall are in the air! We’re ready to head to our sewing rooms to start some new projects. How about you? Some of us have been working on samples for Kim Diehl’s Simple Whatnots Club #5. These fun little quilts are made from the Welcome Wagon line designed by Kim Diehl for Henry Glass Fabrics. Samples of these will be appearing in the shop soon along with kits to make them.

Check out the class schedule on our website for the full lineup of fall classes. We have samples of all of the classes on display. A few coming up soon:
  • Beginning Rotary Star Sampler starts on September 20. If you are new to quilting, it’s a great class to get you started making quilts on your machine.
  • Beginning Quiltmaking starts on September 27. Patricia teaches the basics of traditional quiltmaking. You’ll learn to cut out your fabric pieces using templates and stitch by hand as you create traditional blocks for a sampler quilt.
  • Our Scrap Tamers Club starts on September 17. This is a monthly club that meets on the 3rd Saturday of each month for 8 months. There are still a few spaces available in the 1:15 session.
Nancy has been having loads of fun making blocks for Moda’s Neighborhood quilt. We’re making our sample using Moda “Grunge” fabrics. We plan to introduce this quilt-a-long project next Monday—September 19. Here’s how it works: Nancy will be blogging about her blocks each week beginning Monday, September 19. Visit our blog every Monday and download the pattern to make your own block. We’ll have a fabric bundle available if you’d like to use the same selection of fabrics that Nancy is using or you can choose fabrics from your stash for your own Neighborhood. There will be a new block on the blog each Monday—for a total of 16 blocks that make up Moda’s Neighborhood.

This year Glad Creations is joining the Harvest Shop Hop running from October 6–15. Participating shops are Eagle Creek, Quilter’s Haven, Noble Quilter, Four Seasons and Pins n Needles. At each shop you’ll receive a pattern for a small project and a fall fat 1/8th. Visit all 6 shops to be eligible for some great prizes. We’ll be drawing winners for 6 Gift Baskets valued at $100.00 each and 12 - $25.00 gift certificates. We’re having a bus for the Harvest Hop on Saturday, October 8. The bus is $39.00 and includes lunch! Give us a call if you’re interested. Bus pickups will be at Eagle Creek or Quilter’s Haven.
