This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi All!

I finished another quilt on the long arm this morning!  One more week of my lunches paid for!  lol

I didn't knit a lot this week.  I have been coming home in the evenings and reading.  Some times even your #1 go to to relax needs to be shaken up!  I did get some work on my Tennessee Monkey and scarf done, hopefully the scarf will be done next week and the monkey have more of a body........lol


I have a quilting project in my head.  It's a quilt for myself but I've been trying to get motivated to start cutting since March!  I know I am horrible!  Maybe this week.   I've been thinking if I can find the time I should make it a Quilt Along.  What do you think?  A totally surprise quilt?  I'll have to think more about that.........lol

Hope everyone has a great week!  Remember the Pa Row by Row Shop Hop Starts this week.  Check out our homepage or earlier blogs for all information you need!

Kids 101 @Quilters Depot

Happy Friday!

Bonus blog this week is to remind you or inform you of our upcoming Kids 101!

Kids 101—Make A Bargello
Do you have a youngster in your life who wants to learn.  Are they 8 years and older?  Those are the requirements.  In class one they will learn how to use their sewing machine or one from the store.  We would prefer you have one for the student to use however kids rent machines for free. They will also start to learn about fabric selection.  In this first class they will make a great little box that can be used as a thread catcher or whatever they want to use it for!  It is a lifetime treasure though once made!









In class 2-4 they will learn an easy to technique to cut and sew and then tie/quilt their quilts!  Take Kids 101 and get ready for Kids 201 coming soon!  THIS IS A FOUR WEEK CLASS! Make the bargello in the colors and fabrics they want!







When: Saturdays, July 20th, 27th, August 3rd and 10th @noon to 3pm.  Cost: $50 + supplies  Teacher: Deb Will

Success Stories @Quilters Depot

It's Tuesday!

We really did not take any pictures of success stories this week.  Also I did not unload mom's camera.  (sigh, I do this too often!)

What I do have for you is a picture of our Into the Forrest Decoration.  This was made by our very own Jodi King!  she actually had this done and offered to let us display for the hop.  If you didn't see it close up you totally missed out!

Isn't this awesome!  Thanks Jodie for letting us use it!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

I told all last week that these would be in and here they are!

First we have a bunch more of the fabric that belongs to the BOM we are doing.  If you need more of the fabric come in or when you are ready to think about backing come on in!  If you just love the fabric buy it or we still have a couple of the full kits left for you!


Next up is some Thimbleberries.  As you most know or maybe I'm breaking news for you, The Thimbleberry designer is retiring.  If you need or love Thimbleberries I suggest you snatch them up!  Check out the bolts that we got!

This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

So The Western Pa Shop hop is behind us!  Thanks to everyone who came in!

I want to thank everyone who donated for a chance to win our mascot Seymour the Squirrel!  We will miss him but he's going to a good home with Jenn Casne!  We raised $81 for the Castle Shannon Library!

The shop hop quilt is quilted!  The binding will go on this week and I hope to have the quilt and the money to the library by end of the week!

This week while I was at the store I Pro-stitched two patriotic quilts.  Both will be going with a bunch of others to a local charity  I will tell you more about that soon!

I also did a little bit of knitting.  I am working on a Starbella Univ of Tennesee scarf and a UofT Monkey!  Those are the two legs.  I just need to stuff connect and start the body!

Remember we are closed on Monday for the wrap up meeting for the shop hop!

Next up is the Pa Row by Row Shop Hop and July Classes!  I will tell you more about the Pa shop hop in Wednesday's Blog!

Have a good week!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

This week we have a lot of new yarn for you.

The first is the more colors of the Starbella Flirt!  I love this stuff!  We also got more Steeler Starbella and some Black in for you!  I know a few of you wanted the black!



Next, we have Feza Tokyo yarn in!  If you were at Knit Klub a couple of weeks ago you saw this yarn being made into a great scarf!  Verna has started one so if your around ask her to see it!  Feza have some great free patterns on their website for you to try too!



However, as I write this a whole boat load of fabric is due in!  So stayed tuned for that picture next week or if I get my butt moving maybe I'll Facebook and Tweet it!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

3 Days to Shop Hop.  Are you ladies ready?

Remember Seymour still needs his new home.  Right now you have a real good chance of winning him!

This week I finished a new Starbella Flirt Scarf!  I changed the pattern a little bit.  If you come in and see the difference between mine and Verna.  She used the reommended 4 stitches.  I did 6(ok in some spots 7.  I wasn't paying attention!).  Mine is shorter but it does give a fluffier look.  I think next time I'll do a consistent 5 and see what it looks like.


Make sure you check out tomorrow's blog for more new colors!  I love this stuff!  I'm thinking a nice belt but who knows.

Next is I'm going to start a Black/Orange Monkeys and a Black/Orange Starbella.  No, I'm not celebrating an Ohio team.  I have friends who went to Univ of Tennessee and I want to make them stuff..........lol

I'm at the store most of the week!  Come Visit even if your not hopping.  We are open for you too!

Stay tuned to the Tribune Review tomorrow in the neighborhood section.  There should be an article about the Shop Hop and some of the participating stores.  Can't wait to see who they interviewed from our customers and what pictures they are using from their visit to the store!

If you have not seen it in the store.  This is our quilt!  And Don't forget to get your raffle ticket to win a chance to be Seymour's new guardian (Yes, I have been watching too much of Cat from Hell on Animal Planet!)

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Sit back and grab your drink of choice and check out all these new fabrics!

We are going to start with the one new yarn though!

This is the newest from Premier Yarns in their Starbella line!  Meet Starbella Flirt!  This is the perfect Summer scarf!  I think it would make a cute belt, but that's because I don't wear scarves!
Verna is working on the purple.  More colors will be coming in.  This was just the first shipment!


Next are the fabrics.  You really can't see the white on whites but they are some cool patterns! From the picture they all just look white........lol
To make this even better these are only $9/yard!  You know I love being able to give you fabrics for under $10!



Next up are some Quilting Treasures.  These are $8/yard!!!!!!!!!


Next up are some new Moda's.  These are layer cakes and 3 bolts from the Comma Line!
Next is a very soft flannel that resembles a tweed!  I am very tempted to make a skirt, but probably won't find the time.........lol


Finally, these are just some miscellaneous bolts!


115" Wide!

getting ready for "into the forrest"
