Scrappy Rooster Quilts
October 2018 Newsletter
Hello Fellow Stitchers and Quilters!
I can’t believe Fall is coming fast!
I am away this week at Janome’s headquarters in Mahwah, NJ for education classes. I’m learning about new features on sewing and embroidery machines. New products will be introduced as well. I am excited! Six of you have purchased either a new sewing or embroidery machine since we opened. We are committed to providing you with a quality sewing/embroidery machine. So…
So many of you have spoken about having an embroidery machine that we will now offer an embroidery club. The inaugural meeting will take place at Scrappy Rooster’s Longarm and Retreat Center on Tuesday, September 18 at 1:00. You won’t need to bring a machine, but please bring a show and tell item if you will. You DO NOT have to have a Janome embroidery machine…if you are an embroiderer or an embroiderer wannabe, come on! You are welcome! (And we’ll serve a light snack!) Other meeting dates are on the calendar.
Turning 20: This quilt is created with 20 fat quarters. The cost will be $50 and will include your 20 fat quarters. (Hey, that’s a deal…normally 20 fat quarters would be $60!) Dates: October 1 and 8, 1:00-4:30.
Paper Piecing (Maple Leaf Quilt): This is a beginner paper pieced quilt top. I promise, this quilt is not difficult to make. We’ll guide you through the process. Cost is to be determined. We are still in the process of gathering our supplies. We’ll let you know asap. Dates: Oct 4, 11 and 18 from 5-8 PM.
Slices of Color: This is the jelly roll friendly Grunge quilt that is currently hanging in the front of the shop. Cost: $50 which includes the strips to make the quilt. (And you can use any fabric for the strips. I’m thinking a Christmas quilt…) Dates: October 10 and 17 from 10:30-2 PM.
Gray Square Scramble: I can’t wait to show this one to you…it features squares of various colors and gray! (Yes, you could use another color as your main color rather than gray…) Cost TBD. Dates: Monday October 22 and 29 from 1-5 PM.
Camden Quilt Guild Lock-in: Friday, October 5, 5 PM until 10 PM. And Saturday, October 6, 9:00-5:00 PM. Need to be a part of a sewing group? They’d love to have you join them! Have a group you want to bring for a lock in? Give us a call and we’ll set one up for you – one time or recurring!
Saturday Sewcial: Saturday, October 13, 2018. Demos and Show and Tell! We’ll demo a product or two, show you what’s new in the shop, provide a cookie or two, and then end with a show and tell. Bring something you are working on (or completed) to share with the group!
UFO Saturday: Bring your unfinished project(s) and plan to sit and sew in the classroom to get ‘em done! Saturday, October 27 from 9:00-5:00. You’re in for a treat (hint, hint) if you participate. Cost: $5.00
Midnight Madness: Friday, October 26. 8:00-Midnight! (Store will close between 5:00 and 8:00.) Doors will open at 8:00. Specials each hour and give aways! Sales and give aways to be announced.
