Happy Monday all!

We got a bunch of new fabrics in last week!  Here they are!




 These next two pictures are a fat quarter bundle from Northcott's Stonehenge!  10 Fats and a panel! Just in time for the Holiday!  Quantities are limited.  Get them before my employees!  lol



Winter is coming no matter what we want to think.  This awesome snowman is beautiful!

More Patriotic fabrics for the holiday!

More Christmas from Moda! Pretty enough we can almost forget  it says winter in the name!

This week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

I am caught up on my projects!

First here is my Pirates Pride Scarf!  We need a little more yellow to offset that black at the beginning but it's starting to look better.......lol


I am caught up with my Quilt Along also! Here is a picture of one of the last week's work!  I didn't take a picture of the week before.  I wasn't paying attention to what i was doing when i did it. Oh well!  How many are actually starting Week 8?  I will do mine next Saturday when I am at the store!


If you are in the store pardon our mess.  We are re-arranging some and the new Handi Quilter machines are in and we still need to break down the old machine and sell it!  Brother Machines should be in soon also!

USED Machines for Sale!

Happy Tuesday.

Well I am back at the bank so no it's not a Happy Tuesday, but I hope yours is!

As you know we are bringing Brother Sewing Machines into the store!  They should be here within a couple of weeks!

Meanwhile I need to get rid of the miscellaneous machines we have been using around the store.  check out below for some really great machines at some really great prices.

Stop in and buy!  If you would like it shipped I am willing to ship these if you pay the postage.  You would have to give us a day or two to get to UPS store and find a price.  Then we can get it done for you.

I will say the Janomes and Kenmore are work horses and manual so awesome for little kids!   The Bernette's have some lights burned out but you should be able to get them replaced.  Remember, I am always honest with you!

Quiet Week here @Quilters Depot

The rules tell me I should blog every day.  Who has the brain power for that.........lol

This is going to be a short week!

I know there is new fabrics to show you.  I did not get time to log them in last week though.  So you have something to look forward to next Monday!

Tomorrow there will be a blog but no success stories.  I did not look to see if there was anything on mom's camera.

Hope you all have a GREAT WEEK!

This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

Shop hop is done!  Well except for the wrap up meeting tomorrow.

I am always glad it's over but sad because it means on Tuesday I have to go back to work to my real job!

I did two quilts on the Fusion this week!  Well almost two.  I think I have two or 3 more rows of a snowball then I will be done with two quilts.  Hopefully, Tuesday night I can finish it.

I did not get a chance to work on my Pirates scarf at all!  Hopefully tonight I can get caught up.

I also did not get a chance to work on last week's email for the Quilt along.  We had our machines put away so we had more room to spread out our fabrics for you to enjoy!  Hopefully Friday night and next Saturday I can get both weeks caught up to show you next week!

Speaking of my Fusion.  If anyone would like to buy mine (local would be best) it is up for sale.  This unit if bought new would run you over $16,000.  Email or stop by the store if you are interested and I will tell you everything you need to know!  You know you want it!  Table can be made smaller to fit your space.  Full width it is 12 ft!


Also I promised you all the Wassail recipe from Shop Hop!  Hope you enjoyed all of our Thanksgiving inspired sweets!  This is from our sales Associate Nancy!  I am typing it directly from her.  I did not make it.  I do not know..........lol

Wassail Recipe
2 qt. cranberry juice
2 qt. apple juice
1/2 C brown sugar
3 Cinnamon sticks
3 Whole Cloves

Good hot or Cold

Put in Urn or large pot and perk or boil.  If in pot, boil on medium heat about 40 minutes.  Don't need as long in urn/coffee pot.

If serving cold, let cool and refrigerate!  ENJOY!

Success Stories @Quilters Depot

Hi all.

I love Tuesday because I get to show off all the things you my people are doing and successfully finishing!

First up are the Zentangle class results!  These are just flat glass mats!  Everything you see here can also be done on fabric to make quilts.  Alot of these tangles can also be used to do free motion quilting.  I am not tradional in any sense.  Most of you have figured that out.  Needless to say mine is the first one in the top row.  I used color in my mat.........lol




 This is Pat G's Tic Tac Toe blocks!  Awesome work. I love the colors she picked!

This is Joann E's first Snow Bud BOM Block!  She did an awesome job making a foam wall hanging!

Great work ladies!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Hi all

Yes I am going to say it again!  If I could I'd jump up on the roof or climb the lighthouse and scream it.

We are becoming a Brother/Innova Dealer and a Handiquilter dealer!  We will be re-arranging the store.  Getting all kind of machines in!  We will be training on all machines so that your customer service experience is the best that you have always wanted!  Just be patient with us as we do it!

We have a whole bunch of new fabric that has come in!

Check it out!

First up is a panel from Northcott with Quilt labels on them!


Springs Creative Winnie the Pooh Soft Book!


Timeless Treasures

Some fun Bingo and Poker Fabrics!

Moda charms!

Stonhenge.  Alot of you had been asking for the grey stonehenge in the quilt hanging by the kitchen.  That the bolt on the far right!  So it's in if you want it!


Stonehenge Stone Rolls!  12 Fats!  I am selling these @ $44.  Way less then one of those popular fabric magazines that will remain nameless!  And you don't have to pay shipping since you are in the store!  I mean these are a deal!  Also I am betting these will be gone by end of day Wednesay!  .  If you want one get it now!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

It has been a busy week at the Depot.

Not only have we been getting all of our ducks in a row to start selling not Brother/Innova Machines but also Handiquilter Machines as well!  Give us about a month and we should have the store re-arranged and the machines ready to be bought.

If you are interested in my Handiquilter Fusion/ProStitcher that has been in the store for the past 4 years let me know it's up for sale to make room for a new Handiquilter!

This week I took Deb's Zentangle Class!  Check out Tuesday's Blog to see a picture of my and my
classmates tangles!

Yesterday, before I cleaned my area up getting ready for shop hop I did this week's quilt along!

I will tell you now I will be falling behind for the next week.  I will not have my machine set up at the store to do Week 6's work.  I'll try to catch up the week after.  Check out Week 5's results!  How are you doing? Click here if you missed your email.


I am working on my Pirates Pride scarf!  What a week.  There is a lot of yellow showing up!  I am about two games behind and I'll be three before the afternoon is over.....lol  My goal is to get caught up tonight!

Don't forget Wednesday-Saturday is the Western Pa Shop Hop!  We are open late whether you are hopping or not!  Come visit I will be there each of those days!

I think that is it!

This Week w/Jernn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

I have spent my day so far long arming a quilt.  Wrote the newsletter.  Scheduled my employees for shop hop week.

Now it's time to do the blog.

I am caught up with my Pirates Pride Scarf, but I won't bore you with a picture this week.  Ok.  I didn't take the picture so therefore I am not going to bore you!

I have for years been an anti-applique person. Why I do not know.  Probably because it take concentration........lol

However, as I walked around Spring Quilt Market once again I was surrounded by Applique!  Then I stopped at the Zebra Patterns booth.  I fell in love with the lighthouses.  I actually fell in love with a lot of stuff at that booth.........lol    On Saturday, I started my lighthouse.  I am making St Augustine since it was probably the FIRST light house I can remember visiting.    So here are some pictures of my mess I was making!  I am going to try real hard to have all my pieces cut and fused for next weekend, but I wouldn't count on it.........lol


The other thing I did on Saturday was did my Quilt Along. So far I am still on time!

Here is my picture of week 4's results!  Here is the link if you missed the email for week 5.  http://quiltersdepotpa.com/Quiltalong14/PrecutFrenzyWeek5.html


Next week I should have some very exciting breaking news for you!  Stay tuned to be the first ones to find out!
