This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Rainy Sunday!

I'm trying to get my work done early so maybe I can enjoy the rainy weather and take a nap.  Depends on how boring the Nascar race is.......lol

So what did I do this week?

I finished my sweater!!!!!!!  I will post a picture next week because it's in the basement blocked and drying.

Last night I started a new monkey.  I'm name it princess pink monkey because it's totally pink!  I'll have pictures of that next week too.  It's just a small piece of foot right now.......lol

Here is a link to this week @ if you missed it.

If you are interested in the retreat don't wait!  We are about 60% booked.  7 full rooms and 1 that I am looking for a roomie for one person.  So stop in and let me know your interested or need a roomie to be interested!  We are going to have an AWESOME time!

October Classes @Quilters Depot

I thought I'd take some time and start telling you about some of the October classes!


Quilting 101:
We have had a lot of success with our new 101 class in the past 9 months!  This is a 7 week course but is flexible because we keep the number of students at a low number for more one on one attention!Learn to make this great 9 block sampler!  If you are a new sewer or an experienced one who just loves the quilt.  All reasons to take the class!

When:
Wednesdays, October 3rd through November 14th @ 10:30 am to 1:30pm.

Teacher:
Pauline (there will be two weeks Jane will fill in when Mom gets her eyes done!)

Price:
$75 + supplies.  However if you buy your fabrics from us you will get a $10 gift card.



2 Block Quilt:
Come in and by just doing two sampler blocks you can make a Full or Queen size quilt!  This is a FOUR week class.  Choose any color range that you want.  This quilt takes 13 different fabrics.  Come in and pick them out before the class starts!

When:
Session 1:
Fridays, October 12th, 19th, November 2nd and 9th @10:30am to 1:30pm

Session 2:
Thursdays, November 1st, 8th, 15th and 29th @6 to 9pm

Price: $40 + supplies

Dresden Plate:
 These over sized Dresden's are in our windows and on our walls!  They make great wall hangings by just adding a border.  They also make great Christmas Tree Skirts or table decorations!

Success Stories @Quilters Depot!

As always we have some great Success Stories to show you!

BOM's

Did I show you my finished one?  If I did ok it's self promotion.  If I didn't its Self Promotion.  Yes, it's not a mystery now...........lol  I think I would have laid it out differently but maybe not.  This will be given to a lucky friend for Christmas.


Fall Table Runner!  Nice Work Ladies!



remember the one who finishes projects and brings them in gets their picture in the blog!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Fabrics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's what is new!

The two first will not last!  Mainly because one of the perks of working for me is you get fabrics first. At least most of the time.  Sometimes I yell at them and tell them to get their mitts off of it!

Civil War - If you do not see these out ask.  I have two customers who should have been in today to get theirs but if not they will be put away until they do.    These are really awesome fabrics!  Are only 5 to 7 yard bolts!


Metallic Dots!  This picture does not do them justice at all!  Great blender or for sashing.  These are also small bolts.


Jelly Rolls!


3 Miscellaneous bolts.  I'll admit I put my paws on the pink already........lol

Hurry in and get these!  None of them will last!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I got a quilt quilted.  Got the schedule for the employees done.  Got the weekly email ready for next week!  Gave Abbie a bath which makes her one very mad furrball!

Now on to blogging.  Don't ask what is still on the to do list.  It's too daunting!

Let's see what did I do this week!  First here is This Week @ if you missed your email

Luckily I was off Wednesday - Friday since that was my building on the news all day Friday.  How about me picking the right day to be off!

I want to thank everyone who made our Anniversary week special!  By working the days I saw a lot of faces I don't usually get to see!

I really have not been working on my sweater.  I know I'm bad but I do have one arm almost done!  See below.  My goal is to have the sweater done for next weekend!  Now with the cooler weather it will be cozy to wear it to work!



Other than that I did a lot of computer work and ordering work to try and clean stuff up since it was anniversary week.

Hope to see all of you this week as well!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Happy Sunday!

So what did I do this week?

I finished the binding on my Gone With the Wind wall hanging. One bday/Christmas gift done!

I did a little bit of knitting not enough to make the effort to give you a picture.......lol

I redid the website.  www.quiltersdepotpa.com  hopefully this link will work since this week didn't......lol

I sent you the newsletter.  RETREAT! RETREAT!  Start finding your roommates and bring me your deposit!!!!!!!!!

We also have a bunch of great classes.  If you deleted it here is the link again.  September/October12 Newsletter

I'm sure there is something else I'm suppose to be writing you but I made a really rookie mistake this morning on the long arm and I need to sit down and do some work so I don't look like an idiot.

Let me close out by showing you my 2012 Mystery BOM!  Yes mine is much much wilder than the ones the customers are doing but this is basically what you will have. Of course you can design your blocks in a different arrangement.  I should have but just wanted it done.....lol  What do you think?  I am going to give it to someone for Christmas but I can't name her.....hahahahhahaa  Still have binding to do, but cant' decide.  I think it's going to be crazy yellow which is also the backing.

Success Stories @Quilters Depot!

It's Tuesday!

Stay tuned to your emails for this week's Wacky Wednesday fabrics in a couple of hours!

We have a couple different success this week!

First up is a Shop Hop Quilt from 2011!  Awesome work!


Next up are two Celtic Table runners!


Finally, we have some BOM's!





So that is probably it for this week's blogs.  I am having a mental block this week on what to write about and I'm working on getting a new webpage up for the shop before the weekend since we have the new newsletter to go out.  A coupon (hmmmmmm watch your emails on thursday) to post and retreat info.  Current webpage is frustrating me so it's time to re-design.

Enjoy rest of the week!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Happy Monday

As you read this I am getting a double session of getting my body in sync. First is Acupuncture and second is a chiropractor session because my hip and lower back hates me.  Acupuncture takes the pain away but isn't fixing the problem so we will try the chiro!

So on this Monday we have one thing new!  Just a couple of bolts but here you go!  If I remember right these are $8/yard.

Happy Labor Day from Quilters Depot!

Happy Labor Day everyone!

Yes we were closed.  I need a day off from laboring!  Not that I am.  I am working on some webstuff for both the shop hop and hopefully the store.

I wish everyone a great day and remember if this rain is as hard as they predict at least by being off we didn't have to drive in it.................lol

See you tomorrow!

remember all work and no play makes us all dull people!

This week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Rainy Humid Sunday!

Hope you all are staying cool and dry!

I long armed one quilt this morning and put my BOM mystery quilt on to quilt it so all of you who are doing one can see it will be pretty even though my colors are a little bit wilder than yours!

Now I am working on all my paperwork and blogs.  I hope to take a few hours and organzie myself. I think it's gotten out of hand.

I did quilt my Gone with the wind wall hanging.  I wasn't real happy because I used the Pro stitcher and of course i picked a design the machine didn't like.  (sigh) I really need to get it looked at.  It's on the to do list........lol

What I did a lot of was knitting!  My sweater is getting real close to the body being done!  Have about 11 more rows.  My goal is to have that part done by tuesday night to go on to the next step!


You can see the second diamond being formed!  Second diamond looks much better than the first......Practice does make perfect!  or semi perfect.....lol

Before I go for the day here is the link for this week @

Have a GREAT week!
