(740.775.1957)  Complete price for the day is $129.95. Sign up with a friend and each of you gets a $10 discount.  You get a completely cut kit, food to keep you going, and wenches to rip/press/trim and keep you in the game!!  What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!!
  
II ~ BITS 'N PIECES
  Here is a compilation of upcoming classes and events for you to consider.  I hope you can join us!!
1) ~ FEATHERWEIGHT CLUB  
        Sew many of our customers have one or more of these little darlings ~ 
            Singer  Featherweight 221 machines from the 1930's to the 1960's.    
   I look sew forward to those gatherings!  We have quite a few mini  patterns and kits available now for anyone interested in working on one of them from  home.  I'll get together with Meg at work and put together a paper with all that we've  done to this point, along with the finished size and kit prices or pattern prices.  They are  all fun to do!  (Well, to be honest, some are more fun than others!!  Hahaha!)  Our next  gathering will be Saturday, June 11 from 10-5.  

Oh My Stars! 15"
    Saturday, June 11                                    10-5                                             $5
 
  I have information about Featherweight machines for sale.  I believe our customer, Donna Sheely has 2 for sale.  You can reach her at 614-578-0668.  Alsew, a customer in the Dayton area has several Featherweights for sale at $495.   If you are interested or need more information, please contact her directly at:    pileka@att.net .     Please put Featherweight in the subject line.
2)  KALEIDOSCOPE QUILT POSSIBILITIES  There are loads of patterns that
 feature kaleidoscope-type blocks. Techniques are similar, just the blocks are different.  I'm teaching a FREE class for anyone who would like to make one of these fascinating
 quilts. You can choose what you want to work on.  Only condition is that you get your  fabric/pattern from our shop, and you will get 15% discount on the fabrics and patterns.  Here are some ideas ~ 4-Patch Posies (not pictured); Kaleidostrips 6; Kaleidostrips 8; One  Block Wonder, Stack 'n Whack Fan. The class is TONS of fun.....it's like making your own fabric! I'll help you make whichever pattern you want, in whatever  size you want!  Mark your calendar!!
  Saturday, June 18                                          9-5                                    FREE!
 
3)  YIKES! STRIPES!!
     This is a fun and super-fast quilt designed by Sue Nichols to feature some of our cool   striped fabrics. She's offering it as a class on two different dates. There is a class fee,
  and you get 15% off fabric.  Pattern is free with purchase of fabric.  Hope you can take
  advantage of this and see how much fun it is to work with stripes!
    Tuesday, June 14                               5-9pm
   Saturday, July 2                               10-3                                                $30
 
 4)  OSU CHAMPIONS           
    Kits in any size are available for order, and the large lap is alsew in stock in the shop
  for $94.95.  Each kit is complete and cut and ready-to-sew. It contains Thangles needed
  to complete half-square triangle blocks, borders, binding, and complimentary label.   If
  you would like me to schedule another class for this quilt, please let me know!

Due to popular request, we're now kitting Ohio University kits.  Priced as the OSU Champions, these quilts are fun and fast to do. Back them with the OU fabrics!!  Next on the kitting table are kits for the University of Kentucky.  We're waiting for a couple new bolts of UK blues to complete those kits.  Because of the size and detail of the UK applique, these kits will be a bit more expensive the the Ohio kits.  Stay tuned and I'll let you know when the kits are available!

 
MYSTERY DATES!!    Mark your calendars! The next 2 Mysteries are scheduled for Sunday, June 26 from 11-7 / Sunday August 14 from 11-7  
 
  Edlyn is having a blast with a new embroidery project.  She's offering a class in this in July.  Hope you can join her!!
