Quilters Depot and Castle Shannon Library Event!

I know I'm tired of saying it.  So you must be tired of hearing it.  I have pictures on Camera.  I set it on my desk and forgot to grab it to unload.  (sigh)

I had great pics too.  Some finished 101 quilts and at least one new bolt of fabric.

So instead I will entertain you though with some pictures!

If you are not on my Facebook or Twitter account; then why not?  HAHA!

If you are not on my Facebook or Twitter accounts you missed out on Saturday nights pictures from our library event!

On Saturday, Kristen, Verna, Sally and I spent the afternoon at the Castle Shannon Library teaching 13 ladies how to knit Starbella Scarves!  Shout out to young Marissa!  She caught on and was our star pupil!  Good work to all the other women as well!  A lot of these women had never touched a knitting needle before and were doing really well!

Thanks to my employees who did come with us and to Heather and Heather at the library for letting us help out with the Summer program!  If you have not checked them out; do so!  They have a lot of great activities and events throughout the year!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Happy Sunday!

Did you build your ark yet?  Man I'm tired of the rain.  At least it's not icy and it's lighter longer so it doesn't seem as bad as the never ending snow.........lol

I am not sure what I did this week.  Don't you hate weeks like that?  I must have accomplished something.  I am just wondering what.......lol

I did finish a couple of my hoop sisters BOM blocks.  I really really hope to finish Month 3 this week.    No I have not finished my cowl yet.  maybe tonight?

I have another quilt on the Avante that I want to finish on Tuesday.

If you have not signed up for our Educational Events this summer; what are you waiting for?  It's our first Brother event and we are sooooo excited!  Sign up now and make this awesome placemat.  Your choice of color!  The binding is on the Blue one.  I've just been too lazy? squirrely? to take a new picture.  You get everything you need to make this and you will have everything but the binding done when you leave!  Whether you are interested in a new machine or not.  THIS IS AN AWESOME EVENT!  Call the store to register!



Don't forget 

remember quilting is more than just quilting; it's the friendships you make and the fun times!

Western Pa Shop Hop @Quilters Depot wrapup

Hi all!

I thought you might like to see some of our decorations. This is not all of them but the best ones in my opinion.

Thanks to JC for wearing the kimonos all week and letting us display.  Also thanks to Val for her Japanese items that we displayed also!

For once it was an easy year to decorate!
















I hope that if you were the 475 people who came in that you enjoyed our decorations and a small step in the Japanese culture!  If you find any seaweed chex mix in our fabric shelves please let us know.  I hope we have caught it all!  

If you were not one of those people then next year is another chance to Hop along with us!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

Let's see I am not Quilting today since I completed four Store quilts this week.

Nothing better than actually being at the store for a few days and getting some work done!  If you did not what was going on Weds - Saturday was the Western Pa Shop Hop.  Yes, we survived.  At least we were the lucky ones and we only had to drive home in the rain not hop.

I also got about 6 of the Hoop Sisters BOM done and I charmed all of you along with my employees in our Kimonas since we were Japan.  Stay tune to tomorrow's blog I will show you the highlights of our decorations!

If any of you out there have pics that you took in our photo op and would like to share send them along to me!  owner@quiltersdepotpa.comcastbiz.net

Hope you all have a great week.  I have one more day of vacation on Monday and I will be at the store!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hello on this rainy Sunday!

Laundry done - Check
Long Arm job done - Check
schedule done - Check
Felting my project - in progress
Inventory - still do do


Ok if I listed it all for you; you would probably stop reading!

I spend my Thursday night taking my frustrations out on a needle felting project by Artfelt! I won't tell you the names I was chanting as I did this.  I will tell you all participating broke needles...........lol  This is before felting.  I am doing that as write this.  Not going real well.  Not sure if my dryer is hot enough.  I think it has shrunk some and the fabrics is felting into itself.  I will show you the completed picture next week.


We also have been cleaning the store and getting ready for shop hop!

I have been working on my Hoop Sisters BOM!  

Hope you all have a great week and remember to come hop into Japan with us!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

I am a little late today getting my blog out.  It's newsletter writing day.

Ugh!  If you are one of my reader I apologize!  It's 10 pages long!  I have so much to tell you and invite you to the next couple of months!

I have been working on my cowl.  I got side tracked the other night.  When you baffle the knitting teacher and she takes the scissors to it you know you have succeeded.........lol

All is well though.  Kristen fixed it for me and I now just have to find time to continue!

We are getting ready for the Western Pa Shop Hop!  I have been working on my Hoop Sisters BOM.  We are almost ready for the Row by Row Experience!

If you do not know what I am talking about on any of the above stop into the store and we will fill you in!

Well that's all today because I still have a lot to do on my to do list!  Blogs might be slow this week. I think I have two more for you, however there is no what's new or success stories for you.  Hopefully next week I will have more stuff to tell you!

What's New @Quilters Depot

Happy Monday!

We have some really cool stuff in!  We have some art bins that I forgot to take a picture of.  Makes great project boxes.  I have thread shoved in mine!

We also got some new rollable bags in!  I want one of these.  I could probably fill three or four of these up.


If you have seen the footprints in the sand fabric it's back in for the summer!    Some other really awesome fabrics!
