What's New @Quilters Depot

What's new?

First up is the yarns!  We have four colors of Wendy Wash and Knit!  The pattern for two wash scrubs (one is a fish!) is included on the back of the wrapper!  If you need some for your own kitchen or you need some really quick Christmas or house warming gifts this is the yarn for you!  

The second yarn is non wool sock yarn!  Yes, I know how many of you have allergies so we have a large selection of non wool yarns and will be converting basically to everything non wool in the months to come as stuff sells out unless it's for a class. So if you want the wool come and check it out.  We have some very soft and awesome yarns!




I love anything Stonehenge and here are two new bolts form Northcott!

Speaking of Stonehenge here are some Gradations chips (5").

You know you want it all!  Stop on in!

This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Fall Y'all!

Sorry I had to do that.  Replace Yinz with Y'll if you really want!

I know I promised to finish the dog sweater and have a picture of it.  Yes, well.  I still have one arm hole and the sewing it together today.  Maybe tonight.  Maybe this week. who knows..........lol

I did start a scrubby from Wendy's Wash Knit.  I think everyone will get these for Christmas; including myself..........lol  The gifts I was working on for this year will just be next years.............lol

So If you had not been in the store this week you didn't see my banged up toe.  I think my name should be Grace instead of Jenn............lol  Yes, I broke my toe.  At least most of the bruising is gone.  So if you see me hobbling or breaking the rules and not wearing shoes in the store you will know why!

Hope you are enjoying the weather and have a GREAT week!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

What a dreary Sunday!

Sitting here doing all my computer work and all I want is a nap!

Almost done with the Dog Sweater.  Once it's done I will take a picture of it.  Might even be able to get the Dog to model it.

Nothing else is much new around here.  Wait until tomorrow when you see all the new blenders!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

Let's see I didn't take pics of anything I have to tell you about.  You know I have a bad habit of that.........lol

I finished quilting Jane's Quilt that she did for a class sample.  If you made a For Love of Country Quilt let me know I have an awesome digitized design for that quilt!

I did 6 of month 8 blocks for Elegant Elements.

I am working hard on "Em's" (my adopted dog for the month) doggie sweater.  Thank goodness this adoption is just a knitting project and not a dog walking job!  lol

Other than that it's the same old stuff.  Paperwork, computer work begging my computer to charge..........lol

The life of me!

Happy Labor Day!

I decided since it's a holiday I would take a day away from our Normal routine.

Instead I wish you all a Happy Labor Day!  Hope you are all doing fun things and resting!  You all know a day off means the week is longer.  Or so it seems!

HAPPY LABOR DAY!

We will open tomorrow at 10am!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

What did I do this week?

I fought with my Pro Stitcher most of the week.  I blew up a laptop for about 2 hours.  I think I had bad JuJu's in my fingers!

I finally go the Pro Stitcher up and running and finished a huge quilt.  I put another one on.  Also did a quilt at home this morning.  Have a small wall hanging I will do tomorrow.

I started my dog sweater (no I don't have a dog.  I'm adopting one for the project) so maybe I won't fall too behind in this class.

If you have a dog or know a dog and can knit or crochet you should check out the email that will come through tomorrow!  This is going to be a fun class.  The only pre-work is measuring the dog!

My afternoon will be doing computer work and finishing writing the newsletter!

I hope you all have a great Labor Day!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Sunday All!

I have not picked up a knitting needle all week!  By the time I get done at work, get to my apartment, and get ready for bed I sit and read or watch tv.  Just don't have the motivation to work on my ornaments

However, during the week I finished month 7 of my Elegant Elements BOM.  Here are just a couple of the blocks I have been working on.


I have put on a quilt on the Avante at the store.  My mom made a new quilt for my brother's house and I need to get it quilted.  Want to do a cool design on it so that's the project for next week and probably the only one!  lol

Hope you are all staying cool!
