Knit Klub is tomorrow! Don't miss it!

So have you attended one of our Knit Klubs yet?

We average between 10 and 15 people on a monthly basis.

Here's the Facts Jack!  (sorry I think I was channeling Duck Dynasty's Uncle Sy)

When: Thursday, August 1 5pm to about 9pm

Price FREE unless you want pizza then slip me a couple bucks

We have our knitting teacher on hand to help you.

Anyone can attend if you are doing hand work.  This means embroidery, knitting, crochet, putting binding on.  If you need to get out of the house and have some fun and do hand work this is the time for you!  If you want to arrange some time to get 1-1 knitting fun stop in and talk to Kristen!

Hope to see you there!

Success Stories @Quilters Depot

It's Tuesday.  I hang my head in shame!  I know I have success stories, however I forgot to unload the camera.

I realized this Saturday at like 3:35 when I hit the Caste Village Area and wasn't going to turn around and go back.

I apologize and we will just have more next week!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Since it's still technically Christmas in July time, lets think about Elf on the Shelf!

HE'S IN THE STORE!  Well his fabric is!



Or how about these two cool Christmas fabrics that came in this week!  Not sure if you can tell the one on the right looks like Stained Glass!  This is an awesome fabric!


Then comes promotional fabrics for you!  These fabrics are $7.50/yard!!!!!!!!  Don't wait though there is only 8 yards on each bolt!





Finally this week we have Halloween!  We have around 15 1 yard wonders for you!  Come get them and get started on your Halloween projects!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

What did I do this week.

Well Mr Monkey is still not done.  He is still missing an arm and a tail.  (sigh)  I am so slow!

I did do 3 long arm quilts.  2 at the store and one at home.  Was frustrating though.  The one I did at home I had the worse shredding and jump stitch problems with this time.  I have never had those problems on this machine.  Can't figure out if it was fabric, needle or thread.  I hate when I have trouble like that.  Makes me wonder why I do it.......lol

I did work on my top secret project.  Only 1 block though.

Hopefully this week I have 1 more quilt to do at the store on the long arm. Then I want to work on my secret project.  I also want to get the stupid monkey's arm and tail done!

Hope you have a productive week!

Success Stories @Quilters Depot!

This week we have a bunch of Success Stories to share with you!

First up are Elaine I's animals!



Next up is an almost finished Candle Mat!  We should have some completed ones in the upcoming weeks as they finish the last steps on them!



Finally we have this months completed Bargello Tops!   See what you can also do in three hours?  Bargello's are in my opinion on of the best quilts out there if you need a quick baby or charity gift!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

This week we have some yarn and fabric for you!

First the yarn!

This is Feza Yarn called Nirvana.  It is 100% Bamboo.  This line is being discontinued so if you see a color you want get in and get as much as you can!  We already had some of this in the store, but figured let's stock up if we cannot get it again!  It is soooooo soft.  Come in and we let you touch it.  :-)   I will say I was a very very bad girl and bought a whole bunch of the colors I want.  I'm thinking a new window valance and a sweater.  If I find time.........lol


Next is for you ladies out there who are allergic to wool but want to knit or crochet socks.  This is a wool-free sock yarn!  I have a couple more colors back ordered and only 1 of this green left!  Once again it's sooooooo soft!  lol


Next up is are two bolts of fabric for you.


We also now have 3 bolts of Imperial Batiste!  We will be starting Smocking classes soon in the store for anyone interested.  Stay tuned to your newsletter to find out when!  If you already know how to Smock, the fabric is here for you!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

It's Sunday again!

My Monkey is coming along!  The only thing he needs now are two arms and a tail!  Hopefully next weekend this one will be done and I can start on the second one!  I'd have to say he's turning out pretty cute if I may say so myself!


I have also been working on my mystery project!  It's going along well!  If I can get a couple more people to sign up for the Fall BOM then I will announce this project and get it started.  However,  If the last spots do not go this project will not start until end of September.  Now isn't that even more reason to come sign up for the Fall BOM?

This week I think I get a few days on the Fusion!  I have a baby quilt to get done and hopefully one other quilt.  Just not sure which one yet.  There is just not enough time to do what I want in the week!

Quilt Shop Navigator and Quilters Depot!

It's over the Hump Day.

I just wanted to do some self promotion and some promotion of the Quilt Shop Navigator.

If you have looked at the books on our counter that are for sale that list every quilt store you can visit in different regions then you have been looking at the Quilt Shop Navigator.

A couple months ago the fine folks at The Quilt Shop Navigator embarked on The Cross Country Quilt Shop Quest.   They stopped at our store a few weeks ago.  Please check out our interview/blog that they wrote about us!

Didn't Mom and Pat do good!  Share to show your friends where you shop!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Happy Hot Sunday!

Did you all survive Wednesday's Flooding?

I would like to thank all of you who called or checked on us.  The building did have flooding in the basement.  About a foot and half of water in the snowplow/Tractor business. The good news was nothing in the top levels had water.  We only lost electricity for about half of the day, but we did remain close for the whole day.  It was just too hard for everyone to get to Castle Shannon since there was flooding in so many surrounding roads and I wasn't going to make my employees come out when I could barely make it there myself.

This week I did a little bit of my monkey.  I am starting his head!  hopefully one more week?  I know I keep saying that.  Here's a picture of the growing monkey.


The other thing I have been working on I really cannot tell you about yet.  I'll give you a hint.  Have you heard of a Knit-Along?  Yes we knit here but that's not what we are doing.  Stay tuned.  Plans are coming together and testing has begun on my grand plan!  Is that enough of a tease?

Other than that we have had lots and lots of paperwork to do.  I swear it is never ending!

I am not making any promises on this week's to do list.  You will just have to stay tuned to next Sunday to see!

It's Monday again!

We had two different shipments of fabric come in this week.

The first are some beautiful blues!


The second batch are what you really are going to want!
90" Cheater Quilts!  Buy just 2 yards of any of these fabrics and you will have a twin size quilt!  No cutting required.  No piecing required!  Just buy your backing and quilt!  These are also great hand piecing projects for pillows, table clothes, placemats.  There are just soooooo many things you can do with these fabrics.  Now for the really exciting news.  We got these on sale!  We are going to pass the savings along to you.  The fabrics are priced at $7/yard!  Yes, that is a great price!  Where can you get fabric that is 90" wide for under $11?  Not only is this a great price we have put them in the playpen!  Yes that is right that means you get an another additional 20% off the price!  Don't wait to come in and get any or all of these great fabrics!

This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Happy Rainy Sunday!

So I know I probably promised you finished projects this week.  I have been unmotivated and reading my kindle instead of doing anything worthwhile.

I did finish the Tennesee Starbella Scarf, but I am not taking a picture because it looks the same as it did half done so you know what it looks like.

I did about 3 inches on monkey, but not enough to show you.

I have been working on a secret mystery project for you all though!  I can't tell you what it is yet.  I hope to post about it in August if I get far enough along with it.  If not it will be late September before I can tell you about it!  I hope you will be excited though!  Best part it'll be free to participate just buy your supplies.  Have I peaked your curiosity?

This week I really do want to get more of the monkey done!  We shall see though!

Have a great week everyone!
