This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

I hang my head in shame.  I do not think I did much crafty this week.

I do have a quilt on the Avante that I am doing Pro Stitcher work, but I am being befuddled by the new version and have to go watch some videos or something.........lol  Everytime I would find a few minutes I had to go doing something non-crafty!

I have been a lot of paperwork.   I did not work on Pirates Scarf.  I was caught up through last Saturday and then I didn't knit again.  I need to get my butt moving on that and my change purse so I can get it felted next weekend.

I did not unload any pictures and did not seem to take any.  So basically what I am telling you this is your only blog post from me this week!  I am going to take a week off and see if I can get my butt caught up!

I hope to be caught up on a few things by next weekend! Wish me luck!

Great work ladies on this month's Towel!

What's New @Quilters Depot! Day 2 Yarn and Fabrics

So much to show you!

Let's start with our new yarn!  Both are wool mixes.  The ones you see on top comes in several other colors which I am hiding from you!  Know why?  They are the first yarns for our Penguin Knit along this fall! The yarn is from Skacel and is called simplicity and  is 53% Merino Superwash!   The second picture is also from Skacel and is called Kenzie and is a Merino/Nylon/Angora/Alpaca and Silk mixture.  Talk about soft!




Now comes the fabrics. We have some new panels for your quilting enjoyment!



Some Religious fabrics and some Miscellaneous!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

I have a lot to show you this week! I am going to split it up into two days!  Today notions!  Tomorrow fabrics!

First up is more of the Press n Turn notions that we discovered at Market in May!  Yes we do have some of them and if we don't we will order whatever you want!


Next we have all of our Handi Quilter notions logged in!  Man that took me awhile!  If you need anything for your Handi Quilter come on in.  Once again if we do not have what you want in stock we will order.  We have DVD's, gloves, bobbin winder, horizontal spool holders, and much much more!  We also have our Brother notions logged in!  We have feet, bobbins and much more that we can get you if you need it!  Yes I sound like a broken record, but you know Mom and I are all about getting you what you want, not what we have!



Last but not least we have a new Combo cutter/ruler in the store for you!  If you have loved the one that we use to cut your fabrics Fiskars has come out with a 12" square cutter just like the long one!  I was totally excited when I saw these were in!  Come check it out!   If you have been hesitant to buy the big one due to the size this one is perfect for the home quilter!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

I have to admit I did a lot of stuff this week but did not really take pictures.

I am working on my knitted Lipstick/changed purse.  However I have not taken a picture.

I did take a picture of me on the new Avante!  Ok, so I was stressed and that was a corny smile.......lol  Actually I think I might have been grinding my teeth.  Long day. Brakes went in truck that morning.  No A/C in my truck.  Yes that was me grinding my teeth........lol

This is what I was making.  Just a test of the new Pro-Stitcher.  I also completed a 108" squared quilt for a customer this week on the new machine!


Other than that I am behind on my Pirates  Pride scarf and I did not square up my quilt a long pieces!  I really hope to finish this week as I hope most of you are doing too!

Christmas in July @Quilters Depot!

I do not know how many of you have been in this Month for any of our Christmas in July sale.

Do not know if you noticed we have a visitor for the Holiday!

Nick the Elf on the Shelf came to visit.  According to Elf Union laws he cannot work, but Santa graciously (ok I think Nick was on his last nerve) let Nick come visit us!

Come say hello to him!  I think he needs some pointers on his game, but he's enjoying his stay!


Don't forget our Christmas in July yarn sale.  30% off all yarn that is on the sales floor!

Make sure you watch your email on 7/23 for more great Christmas in July sales!

I only have one for you this week because yes (I hang my head in shame) I forgot to see if there was anything on mom's camera again.

Even though I only have one for you it's an awesome one!

Great job Molly!  This is from her 201 class!  Don't miss this class in 2015 when we offer it!  All segments are producing great projects and the ladies are all learning the tidbits they need to be great quilters!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

So I am really really far behind on my Pirates Scarf.  I haven't touched it since last Saturday night!

I did however start my new Noni Designs Felted Change/Lipstick Change purse.

I had a model though.  I was really tempted to leave it at this size as a hat, but I don't think Abbie would like that. If anyone wonders she did get even at about 3am for this.





I did also do my last "block" on my quilt along!  Check out my new machine!  If you know what I have been using this one is the same machine but has 10 more stitches!!!!!!  You know you want one!  Is lightweight and awesome to take on retreats!




As you come in the next week be patient with us.  We have the three Brother Embroidery Machines set up.  Hopefully, on Tuesday we will get the regular sewing and quilting machines set up!  The Handi Quilters are set up.  I have a few little tweaks still to make.  As of this moment the Fusion is still up for sale if you are interest contact me and we can talk!  If you want a smaller Avante or the Sweet Sixteen (it really is sweet) then come on in!  You know I'm there most of the evenings!  We are getting our sales associates trained so that no matter when you come in someone can help you with Brother or Handi Quilter!

Ok.  time to go watch the Nascar race!  Go DaleJr and Tony!

Handi Quilter is up and running!

The Handi Quilter Avante and the Sweet Sixteen are all set up and ready to be tested!

I hope that you will fall in love with these machines as we have and want to take one home!

We will be learning how to service them in the next few months!  However, we do know how to set them up!  That's the most important thing.  And we can show you how to use them!  Come on in and we can let you fall in love but most importantly "FINISH YOUR QUILTS"

We got some 108's in two weeks ago.


This week we have some really awesome Moda Layer cakes and books in!


And we got a couple of bolts that were suppose to be in for shop hop.  They are our fall fabric themed stuff.  Oh well better late than never.

This week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

What did i do this week?

I am not sure.  Alot of paper work.  A little bit of knitting.  Just enough to keep current with my scarf. I do like the fact that the side on right which is current has more yellow than black.


I am staying current on my quilt along!  Are you?  We are really close to being done.  I think three emails left!   Remember you can go to our website and find a link for the quilt along if you have lost it or want to do it.  Once the quilt along is done I will leave it up for about a month or two so you still have time to participate if you want!



When I was unloading mom's camera she took a bunch of pictures of quilts that we are donating to charities so I thought I'd include some for you to see because I did the quilting on them.
