This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all

So what are you doing this hot Sunday?

I'm doing paperwork!  My typical Sunday.

If you stop in this week you will see my Gone w/the Wind wall hanging that I will be quilting Tuesday night and probably Thursday night and Friday night..........lol

I was going to do something simple but decided to do some pro-stitch work also so it will take a little longer.

This week I've been knitting knitting knitting!

Check out how far along I've gotten!

In about six rows I will have to start measuring and figure out if I have to do a second set of diamonds or just knit.  This is my first cable project and it's going so-so.........lol


And here is the link for this week @

Remember we are closed on Monday!

Charity @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

Well we have finally finished some Charity quilts that I can show you!

The first two are quilts that they sent charm squares from participants at the Mother's Day Race and we put them together!

The last one is a bargello I made.  I quilted that one with ribbons on the Pro-stitcher!

They will be shipped out this week!

Thanks to everyone who donated and/or helped or volunteered to help!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Hi All

Ok, It's Monday and the Question is What's New @Quilters Depot?

This is a loaded question.  I logged in over 20 bolts last week!

Some are very very low prices too.  If you find stuff that you can sell for under $9 a yard I call it a deal.  Come check out my deals!  We are loaded with deals!

We also got in the Project Linus fabric from Quilting Treasures with snoopy and gang!

Check out the pictures!  So many came in some are in the front shelves.  Some we stuck wherever we can fit!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!


Happy Sunday All!

Let's start with This Week @ =  Here's the link. Click here for This Week @  About 44 people have taken the survey about the retreat so there's still some more of you who can take it before I reach my free limit........lol

The answers are very insightful!

Now what did I do this week?
First I finished a wall hanging or maybe it will be a lap quilt.  I hope to have it quilted by end of the month!

We still have the fabric so if you want take a picture and make your own!  Can be any dimensions since I will never give you mine or you might think I have no clue what i'm doing since there was no pattern.....hahahahahahaha.


The second thing I was working on this week was my sweater!  I did have to tink out about 4 rows.  I hate doing that!  Then I panicked when I couldn't remember how to start that section with the cable in it.  I think I remember now.  Want to get a few more rows done by Tuesday so Heather can see if I'm doing this right or not.    At least you can see it's a piece of clothing now......lol  Ignore my foot.  grrrrrrrr I am too lazy to retake the picture today......lol



Hope you are all having a great weekend!

For Sale!

Happy over the Hump Day!

I have had a request from a customer on an item she is selling and I told her I'd put it on my blog for her.
This is the email that she sent.


Hello!

I am selling my white Koala sewing cabinet / workstation and was wondering if the shop would be interested in purchasing it or perhaps you knew of a customer looking for one.  It is an older model of the QuiltMate.  I have attached a few pictures although they do not really capture how great it is.

Nancy 

You can contact her if interested at gearhart7800@hotmail.com if interested!

She is asking $1200 on Craigslist.  Make sure you tell her you heard it from Jenn @Quilters Depot and she may negotiate with you!

See pictures below!  Wish I had room for this one!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

What's new @Quilters Depot?

FLANNELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

but before we get to those.  Here is a picture of the thermal fingers.  Those of you who took Peggy's Celtic class know what you need these for.  If you don't.  These fingers will protect you when ironing small pieces or your fingers are in the way of the iron for bigger projects.  I was just going to say smaller but then I remember I'm a klutz and totally can burn my fingers no matter what!


Next come the fabrics!  Last week I logged a bunch in and this week I logged even more in!  The first are white on whites!  The second are some that look like a Bandanna.  Gotta love that black and gold!   The third are just some miscellaneous fabrics.



 These flannels are priced the way you like them!  LOW!  I want to say they run between $7 and $9.  It depended on the type of flannel but these are really really good prices that I am sharing with you!  There are 14 bolts!  Check out the feet!
 Check out the Frogs, Monkeys and Ducks, OH MY!
 I want these kitties!  Not sure what I'd do with them but man are they calling to be put in my stash!

Enjoy!  Hurry in and do some shopping for you have to decide on even more fabrics.

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

I've logged a lot of stuff in this week!  Stay tuned to Monday's blog for pictures!  Here is the link for This Week @.  There were some problems with Verizon emails again.  Hopefully the problem has been solved.  sorry if you got it twice.

We have at least 20 more bolts arriving on Monday or Tuesday.  They probably won't get logged in til later in the week, but I'll have pictures for you next Monday.

For all of you who were wondering I found my missing customer!  lol  Thanks to everyone who inquired!  I need to start backing up emails if they are important or labeling email addresses with names!

So I have been knitting this week!  That's all!  Well I did buy a kindle but this is about Quilters Depot......lol

I am just about ready to join my sweater to start making the fancy v-neck that the pattern calls for!

Hopefully on Tuesday night Heather will show me how to do the next step.  I only have 2 more rows til I join. Then I'll join and I think i can do two more rows until I need my teacher!

Yes I know it doesn't look like much at this point.......lol

Have a great week everyone!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Sunday!

Kind of a rainy day.  Are you quilting?  Are you knitting?
Here is the link to this week @ if you missed your email.

Well this week I quilted one of our Susan J Komen charity quilts.
I have the newsletter written.  Just waiting for mom to edit so I can start to print so it's all ready for you to read on the 15th.

In the knitting world.  I finished one person's dishtowel and dishcloth.  I still have to put the button on the towel but I'll get that done this week.  To finish this person for Christmas I still need to do the cup cozy which i have started.


This is a picture of the started cozy.  What i wanted to show you is the 9" circular.  These are very hard to find, but if you are doing a small project that you are too lazy to sew up a seam this is awesome.  I will say they are a little bit hard to handle until you practice but once you do it's very cool!  We do have some of these in the store. (2) if anyone wants them.


I have also started my new sweater that I can actually wear to work since it's a dress up sweater!  Hopefully by next week I'll be far enough along to share it with you.  Right now I'm stuck until Tuesday night when I harass Heather on what to do next, because apparently I forgot from 3pm on Saturday til late last night when I hit the row I had to do something different on.......lol

Have a great week!
