What's New @Quilters Depot!

Ugh Monday!

I do not have any pictures for What's New however if you have been looking for the following two items they have come in!

The thermal finger tips that Peggy has used in her classes are now in after having been back ordered for awhile.  These are the ones if you are using the iron near your fingers they will be protected.

We also have the laminated binding instructional sheets.

We also got some other locker hooking kits in a bunch of other notions that needed re-stocked!

What else is new holy heck you should see the order of Windham we placed today.  And the prices will be passed onto you since they are awesome!  Let's just hope we get all of the bolts we ordered!

This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi Rainy Sunday to all of you!

Are you ready for frankenstorm Sandy?  I'm already not looking forward to my commute on Rt 51 and 88 since I think there are 3 flood zones on 51 and at least as many on 88!  Be careful out there this week and hold on to your hats til Halloween.

If you are a reader of my Wacky Wednesday make sure to pay attention this weekend.  I'm going to do something SpookWacky!

Let's see I was reminded this week I forgot to post the picture of my felted purse after the felting.  Sorry about that.  Here it is.  First is the before Picture to remind you how big it was and the after pic. I could felt it again but I am a person whose purse is a backup.  I like BIG! Purses.........lol



I will admit that I did not get much done on my princess monkey so you do  not get a picture.  I only got one arm done and I started the second last night.  I promise it will be done by next weekend.  I have too many Christmas gifts to knit to take any longer!

The other thing I did this week is I started a new purse for a friends Christmas gift.  I hate making purses because you have to follow instructions.  Luckily as owner I get on demand classes!  I also have the greatest purse teacher Verna!  Not everyone would be as patient with me as she is!  Here is the beginning of my purse.  I really hope I finish it next Friday night at UFO. Why don't you join me with one of your UFO's!


Ok.  I think that is all!

This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Happy Sunday everyone!

I will tell you right now this is the only blog post you will get this week.

I really have nothing to tell you........lol  Nothing is new.  Nothing came in.  No one finished anything or if they did they didn't get a picture taken of it.  Actually I lie.  I had one Vintage Ornament finished but I'll post that next week when I have more stuff to post.

Update on Mom. Cateract/Lense #1 is done.  She'll be back in the store on Monday.  She's doing good just don't let her pick up your stuff or bolts or bend over to pick something up.  Next eye is in a couple of weeks.

Here is the link for this week @.  We only have a few spots left for Kids 101, Stained Glass and 2 Block Quilt.  So if you want to take these classes get registered as soon as possible!  All others are still open to register!

So this week I long armed two of the store's samples and once the binding is done they will be put up for sale in the store!  Just small wall hangings.  Of course I did not put pictures up.  I'll have to do a blog in November on all the wonderful items we do have for sale if you need a quick gift for someone special!

I've been working slowly on my princess sock monkey.  I decided to make this a really special monkey as you can see from the way I am decorating it.  I still have the arms to do and a little more Bling to put on it.  When I'm done I'll show you the tail also.  Tail = same color as hair!



Well have a great week everyone!  Next week I promise more posts!

Jenn's Embroidery @Quilters Depot

Over the hump day!  YEAH!

This week you get a Wednesday blog from me.

One of the things I did fairly frequently before Mom and I opened the store was machine embroidery.  Now not so much so when I need to do experiement with thread or such I want to make sure I do it for a worthwhile reason.

So, this week I wanted to test out one of the Superior Threads (Bottom Line) that can be used for embroidery.  So I asked for a tshirt to make my VP of cuteness a new shirt.

Luckily her mom brought me two.  One that doesn't fit which was a bust because a) i forgot to change the bobbin thread, b) i used the wrong stabilizer so the result was a hole in the tshirt.  ooops.  See even those of use who think they know what they are doing don't.......lol  Not sure if you can see it in the picture, but right after the O where there should be an F there is a whole.


Here is the success story though!

Test went good!  The Bottom Line works awesome as an embroidery thread even in my finicky machine!


The reason I did this test is eventually the sulky will sell out and we will not be carrying it.  Alot of you buy your embroidery thread from who you bought your machine from or stores I will not name......lol So eventually we will be carrying Superior for almost all your sewing needs!

So that is an added what I did last week.....lol

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi All

It's Sunday again!

Here is what I am working on.

It's time to felt my bag!  This is the before picture.  I will show you the end result next week!  It's huge at this point.  I love the color though!  Was tempted to just line it and use it as a big purse since I'm a big purse person but I will felt it.

I really haven't done anything else.........lol  Paperwork and such but once I finished the purse I kinda did not pick up the knitting needles again.  My hope is this evening to get a bunch done on the pink sock monkey.

Here is the link for This Week @

In case you didn't read your email this morning.  Here is the link for the October/November 12 Newsletter.

Happy Reading!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Happy Columbus Day!

Did you know bankers have a slight problem.  When they are off due to a holiday it means they can't do the banking they need to do because they are all closed and otherwise they are at work.  (sigh) it's a very horrible thing..........lol

We actually had a slow week in what's new.  Most of the items that came in on things that needed to be re-ordered and for classes so they are all logged in including some of the Moda Marbles that were low.

We did get two bolts of fabrics!  Don't you love the red.  I see Minnie and Micky Mouse!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

I know most of you are watching the Steelers as I write this, but this is every Nascar fan's weekend!  The race at Talledega Alabma!  Daytona and Dega are my favorite tracks so I finished up my quilting, writing of the new newsletter and now my blog entries so I can knit and watch the race!

Only thing to make it more perfect is a nap!  lol

First here is the link for This Week @

So this week I have been knitting up a storm!

I promised you all a picture of me in my sweater.  I HATE getting my picture taken so you all are very privilaged to get this!  I want to do this sweater in white without the diamond and maybe black with the diamond.  Wish I didn't have Christmas Gifts to finish.....lol


I also have started a princess pink sock monkey which I think I mentioned last week.  I have the legs done and attached!


On Saturday the knitters started their next project a felted purse.  I have mine I'd say 1/3 done!  I hope to be half way done by tonight if I get my fingers moving!


If you are around on Monday come see me. It's a bank holiday and I will be in the store from 10 to 5!

Success Stories @Quilters Depot!

This week we have only a couple of success stories.

Here is the first one.  I'm going to say this is from our string piecing class!  This is looking awesome!  What you see is her setting it out and deciding how to do her blocks!




This second is a memory quilt one of our customers made!  Awesome work!


Lastly, on Saturday my employees go to take a free class in paper piecing from their co-worker Peggy.  These are the results.  Great work Anne, Heather, Jane, Nancy and Pat!
