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:
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)
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!
