Remember tomorrow is a Big Day @Quilters Depot!

Tomorrow is March 1st!

Big day here at Quilters Depot!

Here's why!

1) If you are going to the retreat the balance of your money is due by the end of the day.

2) 2013 BOM - Pick up your first months blocks!

3) Friendship Block exchange!  Today is the day to come in and drop off your blocks if you have not and pick the ones you get to make!

4) It's an UFO night!  Come work on projects and join the Depot Fun!

We are open until 8:30 on Friday night so make sure you get in for the reasons above!  I'm the last to pick for friendship block so don't make me wait ALLLLLLLLL day............lol

What's New @Quilters Depot (I forgot something)!

Yes I know it's Wednesday and I usually don't do new stuff on Wednesdays.

However, I forgot to tell you what we got in!

BUTTONS!

We are experimenting in carrying Dill Buttons.  They range from $.15 cents up to over a $1.00


The buttons that are in the tube are pictured on the lids.  What you really can't see is that the far right one are bears!  The second one from the left is a heart!  The purple is a jazzy looking swirly purple.  If these sell well or your looking for a certain type of button check out Dill Buttons and let us know!  We will probably expand the $.15 cent ones in several colors other than white, red and black but for $.15 these buttons can't be beat!

Success Stories @Quilters Depot!

We have a couple success stories for you this week!

First up is a pair of the felted slippers.  Not mine.  I think these were JoAnn T's!  Great Work!  We now have the kids pattern. (yes that's what I have to make mine from.....lol)


Next we have a landscape quilt!  Awesome work!



Finally we have our Braided Rug(Chevron) success stories!  These are 3 of our 4 ladies done.  For the life of me I cannot remember if I took a picture of the fourth one.  Cindy did I take a picture of yours? Great work to everyone!


remember if you finish projects we like to put your picture in the blog!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

If you are a member of facebook who follows me or if you follow me on twitter @Quiltersdepot then you have already seen these!

That's right those people get the new items even before the breaking news of the blog!  Don't you want to follow me too?

First we have Neon Starbella!  These have been going fast but more has been ordered!


The next thing we got in this week is Corduroy fabrics!




These are the pillow cases that the above panetl makes!  Don't you love them!



Coordinating fabrics!

The next two bolts I have to show you are going to be hot in the next month as the Penguins make a run for the playoffs!  You know the quilt we have in the window?  This is the fabric in two shades!  We have waited for two years for this fabric to back in stock!  


Finally, I can't remember if these came in last week or this week or if I shared! We have some volleyballs and basektballs!  These would be great for the kids who want a pair of pajama pants or a sporty quilt!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Happy Sunday!

In the world of Nascar fans everywhere consider today our Super Bowl  Who cares about who won the real one we care about who is going to turn left for 500 miles and take home the most wanted trophy in all of motorsports!

So if my work seems to be messed up.  I have both ears to the TV and the fingers on the keyboard.  They might  not mesh.........lol

So this week I finished my Friendship Blocks.  Yes I know I always wait til the last minute!  I forgot to take pictures so I will try to remember to before they leave the store on Friday when their new owner takes them home.  I will also post the blocks I get.  I'd have to say there are NONE in the bin that are ugly!  I am excited to see what I am going to get!  Are you?!

I did start to knit my own felted slippers this week.  Here is a picture of foot #1!


I hope to be at least this far on #2 next week so I can felt them and wear them at retreat in two weeks!

If you stop in the store in the next two weeks you will see me quilting the 2013 sample of the BOM!  Remember to pick up your first blocks if you have registered!  

Have a great week!

Would you like to teach @ Quilters Depot?

Hi all

It is with deep regret for us,  but excitement for Wendy to announce that she is no longer going to be teaching knitting at Quilters Depot.  She is going back to Virginia for the rest of the school year!

So we are once again looking for a knitting teacher!  We need someone who can teach some projects classes while slipping in some actual technique learning.  If interested contact Jenn and details and ideas can be discussed!

Also as always we are looking for quilting teachers!  If interested let Jenn know!

Next up we have the Gentle Wave Success Stories.  These were all finished or almost finished quilt tops as of the end of their class this past Saturday!  I just love how different each and everyone looked!  Awesome designing ladies!  The last one in the group was our sample by the teacher.  You can really tell how creative everyone was!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

We got a bunch of fabrics in this week!  The majority of these were sale items which means I'm passing the savings along to you and the price will be under $10/yard.  I'm just not sure which ones they were......lol  Check out the penguin fabric near the bottom!  I love this fabric!  It's not quite what is in the sample in the window but it's close!








We got a few more starbella in!  Check in each week because they come in slow but move out fast!  New colors are due in soon including neon colors!  If there is a color you want let us know.  We have a special order list so when they do come in you can get what you want.  We hope to have more Stinger (black and gold) in soon!

This week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

We have dodged Nemo!  I'm not sure if I wouldn't rather have a nemo than the 1 inch twice a day we have been having.  Or maybe if they just learned how to take care of our roads in 1 inch of snow we would all be fine.  I have never had as many bad commutes due to snow as I have in the past 2 weeks. There is no excuse to the boss or the customers when it's only 1 inch of snow other than I'm tired of snow and apparently that's not an acceptable excuse!

I do have another rant.  If you have a computer and it does not have windows 8 on it please baby it with all you can.  I have had my windows 8 laptop for a week and I HATE IT!  I am still trying to do updates before I can even load software. Good luck if you have to get a new computer!

Now on to what I have done this week! I promised you finished project pictures!

The first is the Friendship Block sample that I did for the Western Pa Humane Society.  Here are some pictures of the quilt and the long arming that I did on it!  The quilt has been delivered and is all ready for their event next weekend!  If you look closely at the white block you really can see the quilt design that I used.





The other item that I finished this week were the felted clogs.  I barely passed this class.  I'd say I got a C-.........lol  Some where in the finishing of one of the clogs I missed some stitches or something bad happened and I ended up with a huge hole on the top of the clog when I felted it.  (sigh).  Wendy was able to patch it up but not a good finish for me.  You won't see the hole because I put it upside down to show you the sole.............lol  These clogs are for mom since I need a smaller size which the patterns have been ordered for smaller size feet (IE kids).


I do not know if I have any plans on doing anything crafty this week.  Maybe work on a knitted chemo cap if i ever finish updating my new laptop.  At the store I want to get all my pieces cut out for my Friendship Blocks that I am putting into the exchange.  Maybe I will get a few of the blocks actually pieced!  We shall see!

What's New @Quilters Depot

Happy Monday.

Or it will be if it warms up and stops snowing............lol

First up are a few more starbella's!  These are two of the Gilded!  If you need a color send me the name and I will order it in.  We have a lot of back ordered colors due to the popularity of these yarns!  I'm trying my hardest to keep them in stock and the colors you want!


The BIG what's new is that we now have the ruler/cutters that we use to cut your fabrics.  You all say when you see us use this tool; I want that!  Well we have finally found a distributor who imports them from Australia!!!!!!!  And the price only went up .95 cents from the last time we had them!  Now the only discount that is usable on this tool however is your birthday coupon.  No other discounts!  We have limited qty this first order for people who said I want one and we've been keeping a list.  If you want one we will be ordering more.  Just leave your name so we know you want one!  Or come in and see if they are in stock!




remember the one with the most stash (or cool toys!) win!
