One step at a time....
We are starting to order fabric, notions, patterns and other fun stuff. It is challenging to order fabrics from so many companies and still make sure we provide our customers with a well balanced array to choose from. It is a blast to order enough fabric to fill a whole store though! How many times do you get to do that? So many beautiful things to choose from. What would you like us to carry we wonder?
Deb and Patricia are also starting to meet with Quilting arts teachers in our area to set up classes which we hope to begin hosting in August. So far we have some beginner piecing classes planned- one that will walk you through a sampler quilt learning different techniques with each block, a surface design class using paint sticks, a more advanced pattern class for a dimensional center medallion block, and a quick to piece wallhanging (perfect for a gift), and that is just the beginning.
The Quilters Crossing website was on the to-do list today and so we sought out our friend Diane (Renaissance woman that she is) again for her expertise. We have a start on it here check it out and see how we are doing, much more to come on that in the near future.
