Spring/Summer Hours Start Next week!

Hopefully by me declaring spring hours are back spring will arrive!

Ok.  Yes I am desperate for spring to arrive and stay for more than a few minutes!

First, there is no success stories because I lost the pictures.  I shouldn't say that.  My android ate them and would not spit them out!

Might be time to go find a new phone :-(

So back to what this blog is about.  Starting Monday, March 3rd we will be open to 6pm in the evenings again!  Tuesdays til 8pm.  You all should know the routine.  If we have classes at night we are open to you!  Just check the calendar to see if we have a class!

I think I give up on blogs for the week!  I am out of stuff to talk about.

We do have a lot of great classes.  check out the newsletter and register!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

It's Monday!  I only have one of the two pictures of new items.  

The picture missing is of some really pretty fabrics.  I think that means you need to come in and look for them!

What I did get a picture of is the whole line of the Superior Threads that I have gotten in.  What you see below is the Glitter Line!  Can be used for embroidery and for machine and long arm quilting!  I am trying one of the blue's out.  If I remember I will try and take a picture of it.  If we all like these threads I can get the bigger spools in!

Does anyone know where your deleted files go on an android?  Maybe if i knew that I could give you more blogs this week.............lol





Oh well.

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Happy Sunday!

Is anyone else watch the Great American Race?  I am a diehard Nascar fan so I am doing my computer work in front of the TV!

I was going to post you a picture of my first finished mitten.  I am 1/2 way done with the second but my stupid phone will not send the picture.  There is another picture for tomorrow's blog it is holding hostage also.

I figured as I type this I will reboot.  I will either lose the pictures or we will have success.  Stay tuned to this email to see if you get a picture.

This week I want to finish my mitten and start a second type.  I really want a pair that has the flap on them.  If I keep working on mittens my mind tells me I won't need them after this week...........lol

The other goal for this week is to quilt one of our charity quilts.  I am trying a newer Superior thread out!  See tomorrow's blog to see the thread!

Ok.  I give up on the phone's email.  If it finishes maybe I will put it in Tuesday's Success story.  if not those pictures are lost.

have a good week!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all.

It's Sunday.  It's snowing.  I mean really not only is it groundhog day it's a broken record!  I am a little bit of a weather junky and they are backing off the high's for next week. (sigh)  I want my 50 degrees!  They are worse than the groundhog. They all should have to shovel and drive us when they screw up the weather.  I'm tired of driving in it and walking in it every day!

I have some of my knitting pictures for you!

First is my finished Wine Bottle Cozie!  I didn't pick a real good color to display the cables but oh well.


Next up is my new project.  A pair of knitted mittens!  I hope to have this mitten except for the thumb hole done for next week so I can start on the second.  We will learn how to do the thumb at the next class.  Don't you wish you came to our knitting classes!



I am in the store tomorrow since the bank is closed for President's Day! Come visit me and make my day off (lol) go quickly!

This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

It's Sunday.  It's Snowy.  Do you feel like we are actually living Groundhog Day?

Well I finished my Cabled Wine Bottle Cozie!  :-)

I forgot to take a picture for you though  :-(

I promise to get that to you next week!

Let's see other than a whole heck of paperwork I did not do anything this week. While except to waddle like a penguin around the city back and forth from work on all the ice.  Ok.  I did write the upcoming newsletter this afternoon.  That's a big accomplishment!

Do you seem to get less done in this type of weather?   I seem to conserve all energy just to get back and forth from work!

This week I will be starting my last cabling knitting class!  Mittens!  There is still room for you!

Talk to you next week.  Maybe it won't be snowing!

Remember it's the last week of the Winter Clearance Sale!  Don't miss out on our table of 40% off fabrics!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

I hope everyone enjoyed the Sunny and Warm Saturday we had!

Hopefully where ever you are reading this you have only had rain today!

I continued to work on my wine bottle cozie this week!  If I didn't tell you what it was I'm not sure you'd know.  Maybe if I work hard it'll be done by next weekend.  At least that is my hope.


The plan for the rest of the afternoon is to work on the Retreat Invoices! So stay tuned this evening for yours if you are going!

Have a good week everyone!
