Elaine's Quilt Block to present Treasure Island

Welcome Spring! from Elaine's Quilt Block. Just in time for our new Class Schedule and Celebration Week, Monday, May 2 thru Saturday, May 7, with Scissor Sharpening while you wait on Saturday 10:00-3:00.
We're offering another Civil War Block-of-the-Month, May thru November. Faithful & Devoted: "Adelaide" (pinks) or "Charlie" (blues). The blocks are based on letters and diaries of the courtship between a young solider and his love, as they are separated by hundreds of miles during the raging war. We'll learn 12 intricate center blocks with beautiful settings and options.
An example of a new class offering, Cathedral Cutie, teaches a fun technique to create the
Cathedral Windows block with no hand sewing involved.
Among our regular favorites, T-Shirt Memories will help you turn those faborite themed t-shirts into a great memory quilt. Block prepartion and design options are covered and you will go home with a layout planned.
Go to our website, for dates and details, plus info about what will be on sale during Celebration Week.
We've been busy planning a Pirate Treasure Map quilt for the Wasatch Front Shop Hop 2011. We're hoping our secret formula to make the map look like ancient scroll paper works out! And beware of pirates in the store June 15-June 18--our theme for "The Greatest Quilt I Ever Read" is Treasure Island.

There's always so much to do! So many new fabrics have arrived.... So many samples to make.... So many kits to cut.... Block of the Months....

5x5 Saturday The last Saturday of this month (April 30th) is a 5x5 Saturday. Any month that has a 5th Saturday has a special sale on that last Saturday. You purchase a bag for $5. The bag is good for every 5th Saturday that year. Bring in the bag (or purchase it that day) and everything that fits in the bag is 25% off. That means that almost everything in the store is 25% off. It's the perfect time to purchase a kit or quilt backings or fabric for your next project. We even have ladies come in a day or two ahead of the big sale day to scout out their purchases.

Shop Hop The Village Girls have been busy creating samples and making up new kits for the shop hop in June. The last day of the Shop Hop coincides with Heritage Days in Brigham City. There will be a one day quilt show at the courthouse (June 18th) from 10am to 4pm and lots of artisan and vendor booths to visit around courthouse square. With so much to do, you can make the trip to Brigham City a family affair.

2012 Winter Retreat We have the talented Jeanna Kimball scheduled as the teacher and lecturer for our next winter retreat (January 2012). We are taking reservations now. There will be 2 one day classes (Friday and Saturday). You may sign up for one or both. As usual, on Friday evening we will have a dinner and trunk show at the Maddox Lodge. Please call the store to make your reservations.

Pincushion Club Our wonderful customers continue to be impressed by the Pincushion Club samples on display. Lori Genther creates a wonderful, unique pincushion each month. The little pincushion to the right, Quackers, was March's project. Isn't it cute? A limited number of patterns and kits from past projects are still available.

Come on up to Brigham City and visit us anytime. We are open from 10am to 6pm Monday through Saturday.

12215 South 900 East, Draper UT 84020

(801) 576-0390

February marked our first year as new owners of Thimbles & Threads and what a year it has been. We've survived a break-in, a flood, two broken water lines, a sewer line back-up, a snake (you don't want to know!) and the many joys of maintaining a 100+ year old building. Through trial and error we've learned the ins and outs of inventory management, how to deal with vendors/suppliers/manufacturers, and the many facets of bookkeeping and accounting that go along with it all. Whenever it seems overwhelming or impossible, a day at the shop with so many wonderful customers, fabulous fabrics, and beautiful quilts takes away all of our worries and reminds of us of how blessed we are. Thank you for making our first year a successful one!

We have a wonderful new classroom. We're enjoying it so much we've added a few more classes to our winter/spring line up:

Wacky-Four Patch with Lea Hardee

Saturday, April 23rd from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

A fun kaleidoscope quilt, this technique will have you looking at fabric in a whole new way. You'll be amazed at the possibilities!

Cost: $35.00 (includes pattern & lunch)

Frayed Fish with Dianne Gardner

Saturday, April 30th from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

I love this quilt! This is Dianne's own original pattern. A unique twist on the drunkards path, these raw-edge fish go together quickly and look great in any colorway. This is a terrific STASHBUSTER!

Cost: $15.00 (includes pattern)

6-Minute Circle with Lea Hardee

Saturday, May 14th from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

You can't appliqué circles as quickly and accurately as the 6-minute pieced circle. This technique can be used for a wide range of curved shapes. Circles, circles within circles, ovals, pears, hour glasses. Your imagination is the only limit! A wonderful addition to your piecing repertoire. Cost: $35.00 (includes pattern & lunch)

If you have an idea or suggestion for a class, please let us know. We're always looking for new ideas!
