What's New Sunday June 26th!

Good Sunday Morning

I logged in inventory again on Friday night! 

Superior Threads are restocked.  Or I thought they were. More sold out while the last shipment was coming in!  lol  So Superior Threads are half restocked!  If there is a color you really want let me know so I can make sure it's here for you!

SewLine Products are restocked.  We have the glue sticks, pencils and the gift set available!

Last but not least, some Christmas fabrics have come in!


These are reasonably priced too!  Remember there is a big Christmas Fabric Sale in July and these fabrics are included!

Ok.  I am off to work on the Pro-stitcher manual so that I can start teaching you all how to do it.  Thanks to my Guinea Pig, it was a very productive class!

Learn Something New Every Day!

Hi All

You all know I do almost all of this stuff myself.  I do have a couple people who advise me and give me suggestions but right now it's all me.

I have great ideas.  Sometimes they work. Sometimes they don't.

Here's what I learned today.  I'll admit i don't learn something new every day. There are days i learn more than one and my brain explodes.......lol

If you would like to actually get notification when I post it's not the follow feature it's the subscribe.  I added the new gadget tonight and hopefully this will be what notifies you every time i post an blog entry!

What's New June 19th, 2011

Hi All!

Hope you all had a great weekend.  I've been down and out with a bad cold.

I did log some stuff in Friday and Saturday. 

First off the top of the list.  Of course it's here the week after shop hop when you were all asking for it! 


Potato Fabric is in!  It looks a little different from the first batch that we had but is basically the same!


Next up is what some of you ladies up North of the City asked if we were going to carry.

We now have Roxanne needles.  We have Sharps #10 and Applique ones.  There is a third size but I did not write it down.  (smacks my forehead against the wall.  I was sick when i logged these in and I'm not real good at stuff when I'm sick.  Stop in and see what we have!)

On the subject of needles.  We are re-stocked with the John James Millners and the Big Eye Size 9 Quilting needles.  We also now carry the two most popular size of Organ needles.  The universal 90/14 and 80/12's. These are the ones I personally use on my Viking Sewing machine!

Some other stuff that is now re-stocked:
*Insul Bright
*The Here Comes Santa Redwork Pattern (the one up on the wall)
*Pounce
*Best Press - Lavendar smaller bottles
*Best Press - I special ordered some of the gallon refills of the lavendar and have two that are available to buy in the stor if you are interested.

We also have re-stocked the Easy Rulers.  These are the great rulers that have the 1/8th's marked on them!  We have the Easy Rule Jr that is a 3x6 ruler, and two larger sizes.one is 6x13 and the largest is 6x24!

Next we have RJR fat quarters of Musical instruments.
And finally, a customer showed us this neat iron during shop hop and it totally excited us.  So of course we ordered a few of them.  Come in and check these out.  I want to try one on the long arm to see if I can get some of those pesky wrinkles out!


There is a bunch more stuff I did not get logged in.  It's on my to do list for next week!

Remember the one with the most stash wins!

Welcome to my Blog and Shop Hop Quilts!

Monday, June 13th 7:50pm

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to my new Quilters Depot Blog!  You all know me.  I'm Jenn.  I'm co-owner of Quilters Depot 4160 Library Rd. Castle Shannon Pa 15236.   The majority of my readers enjoy my newsletter and monthly blog.

I've been asking myself how to keep you all informed on what I'm doing at the store and when new products come in.  So ta da! I decided on a blog.  If you sign up you will be notified when the blog updates.  If I get new fabric in this will be the first place to see it!  I will also update you on notions and any breaking news!

So this first blog is all about Shop Hop!  Thanks to everyone who participated!  Below you will see pictures of the majority of the store's quilts.  Hopefully, I was paying attention this morning as we all took pics of whose were whose.  I will try to get the missing picture.

First up is our quilts.  The Red/White/Blue one was created by our  Friend/Teacher/Customer Andrae.  The second is our sample for the classes we are having.  I hope to quilt this black and gold creation and donate it.  More on that when it happens.  It was created by two of our sales associates, Anita and Sheila!




Next Up is the Quilt that Sew Special:





Next we have: Peace by Piece
Next: Farmhouse Fabrics

Next: Judy's Quilting Corner


Next: Baughman Sew & Quilt

Next: Quilt Patch

Next: Piecing It Together:

Next: Muddy Creek Originals

Last but not least of my pics: The Quilting Bee

I hope you all enjoy my blog and the pictures!  I hope you all register to receive when I update the blog!  I will also try to post to facebook when I update!
