Super Summer Sale!
I mentioned in the last blog that, if you had trouble organising your UFO’s for this year you might like to join the 2018 APQ Challenge. The idea is that you number your UFOs from one to twelve. (If you have more than twelve you may need additional help – try adding more than one project to each number but remember that you have to work on more than one project each month if you do that). Each month a number is drawn and that’s the UFO you work on. So now we are at the end of January and I hope you have at least some part of one project done. I have managed to almost finish this lovely Leanne’s House design called ‘Sew, Laugh, Love’.
To tell the truth Mum did the stitching and I am just adding the fabric highlights and border but it’s still a project – not so much a UFO as a PFO (Pulled from Oblivion) but it still counts!
I have also been working on a new pattern for the beginner class – starting with a nine patch is sometimes a bit daunting and the project needed a jazz-up so I’ve designed a table-runner for the beginners in the group. Here’s a preview –
OK Mum might be sewing this one up too but I cut it out!
If you’re having trouble too you will be pleased to hear that Apatchy classes start again this week – tomorrow actually – and we have several new quilters at various stages from real beginners to the more accomplished. It is always a joy to see the projects unfold at the beginning of the year.
As fabric accumulation will also be a joyous thing for you, you will also be delighted to hear that we are starting the year off with a super sale (that’s a normal sale but with exceptional qualities).
This week only, you can enjoy 20% off all stock (apart from classes, magazines and blocks of the month) and, if you’re clever enough to have joined as a Geronimo Club member you will receive an additional 10% – so that’s a great big 30% off – one week only – here’s your chance to grab that fabric that’s been calling to you over the holidays! If you can’t make it this week don’t despair – just mention SALE in your comments when you order online and you’ll receive the discount too.
There are also a few surprises. As I mentioned Mum has been here for a couple of weeks and with her is Dad – upholsterer-extraordinaire – so naturally I’ve had to keep him entertained. Here’s a peek at what he’s been up to –
Let me know what you have been up to over the holidays?
See you this week! Until then happy quilting.
