Our first class will be held on Thursday, October 20, 2011, from 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm.  Connie Boles will be instructing on the Disappearing Nine Patch quilt or throw.  This is a pretty simple pattern but it looks really impressive when completed.  Be sure to register if you are interested.  Fabric requirements and cutting instructions are available at Sew & Sew Quilt Shop, 216 Hubert Street, Cleveland, TX.  You will need to have the cutting done prior to class, so be sure to allow time for this.
Laura Biano will give a free demonstration of Anita’s Arrowhead quilt on Friday, October 28, 2011, at the shop.  This will be at 11:30 am to accommodate those who have jobs.  Those who have been in the shop this week may have seen Laura’s gorgeous sample on display.  Bring two pieces of coordinating fabrics (8” or 10” square), and Laura will show you how to make a block in a jiffy.  Since the pattern is copyrighted, Laura will provide information regarding where to obtain this pattern.

The first week

Sew & Sew Quilt Shop’s first week under new ownership was a roaring success!  Thanks to all my wonderful customers and friends for your support.  Also thanks to my wonderful daughters and granddaughter for all their hard work in getting the shop up and running.
I have a new shipment of Moda fabrics to be delivered this Thursday.  It should include a very nice zebra print as well as lime, bright pink, and teal solids.  I have also pre-ordered new Moda collections which are due to be delivered in each of the coming months.  Since the holidays are rapidly approaching, you might want to remind your family that we also have gift certificates.
Our first class will be held on Thursday, October 20, from 5:30 pm until 9:00 pm.  Connie Boles will instruct on the “Disappearing Nine Patch” quilt (or throw).  As this class is almost full, we will probably have another class at a date/time to be determined.  Call me to register for classes.
Scheduled shop hours are Tuesday-Friday from 10:00 am until 5:30 pm and Saturday from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm.  The shop will be closed on Sunday and Monday.  If you would like to come check out the shop but can’t make it during these hours, give me a call and I’ll wait on you.
Look forward to seeing you and supplying your quilting needs.

Newsletter 10/4

The day has finally arrived!  Sew & Sew Quilt Shop, 216 Hubert Street, Cleveland, Texas is officially opened for business.  As the new owner of Sew & Sew, I would like to invite you and your friends to stop by to see all the wonderful new Moda fabrics.  For your quilting and piecing needs, we also have Gutermann threads, battings, and notions. 
I am particularly excited about the new Moda Grunge fabrics.  These are 100% cotton and the colors are delicious!  The designs are somewhat similar to Batiks, but even better.
Sew & Sew will be open Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:30 pm. and on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.  The shop will be closed on Sunday and Monday.  Should a special need arise outside of these hours, I will be happy to accommodate your needs whenever possible.
As in the past, we will continue to have quilting classes at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.  Evening classes will be available on Thursdays, and some classes may be held on Saturdays.  On non-school days, children’s classes can be taught when a parent, grandparent, or other adult can accompany the child.  Costs of each class will be determined by the instructor and the difficulty of the project.  In some cases, kits will be available.  All classes will be scheduled and/or cancelled through Sew & Sew.  If you have a special pattern that you wish to learn, let me know and I will find an instructor for a class. 
No classes will be held on Wednesdays; instead, we encourage you to bring your sewing machine and unfinished projects to the shop and we’ll chat while we sew.   Usually, one of the instructors will be available in the event you need assistance with your project.  We will charge $5 for the Wednesday social to help defray the costs of air conditioning/heating.  This “$5 social” day will be extended to any day in which classes are not being held so that space will be available for you to sew.
As the holidays rapidly approach, you might want to start dropping hints about gift certificates from Sew & Sew.  They also make wonderful birthday (or any occasion) gifts.

I look forward to seeing each of you at Sew & Sew to share in the pleasure of creating a project worthy of passing down to future generations.
