Announcements and Special Events
 
We will be closed on Monday, May 26, in observance of Memorial Day. 

Our SALE FAT QUARTER SALE continues!  Regular price is $1.50 each.  If you buy 10 or more, the price is lowered to $1.25, and if you buy 20 or more, the price is lowered to $1.00! 
Our newest block of the month is House Warming Party!  This 6-month program  features fabric by Faye Burgos for Marcus Brothers, "Home for the Holidays", and a set of patterns by Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek.  And, though this is a beautiful Christmas quilt, the color palette, print motifs and overall quilt design lend themselves easily to pre- and post-holiday decor as well.  Faye highlights the collection with a beautiful, large red floral, which Vicki uses as wide sashing. This frames and accentuates the sampler-style blocks, making assembly much easier as there are no points to match. The quilt is a great introduction to Faye's Strip-It fabric.  We can only take 20 participants and it's filling up fast, so please come in soon or call (916-967-5479) to register. 

Teacher:  Dana Lahargoue
Meetings:  3rd Thursday of the month, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m., June - November (Month 6 is the finishing kit, including borders & binding.)

Cost:  $25/month  (Includes fabric and pattern.  There will be no refunds after the class begins.)

Circle Pizzazz, Judy Sisneros, Sat, May 31, 10:00 a.m. – Noon - 4:00 p.m., $60, supply list.  Judy's inspiration for this class began with the 'snake trail' block, which she has taught for years as "Winding Paths" - a great design.  She wondered what would happen if she made the block and then re-cut it, made a little change, and then remade the block.  It was wonderful!  Plus, with the 'planned-overs' you have pieces to make a second quilt.  Come spend a fun, instructional day with Judy and make your own unique pizzazz quilt.  Templates are available for purchase.  Intermediate level.
