BOM– Hoop sisters—New Session Saturdays:    

Do you love to use your embroidery machine?  Have you seen the Hoop Sisters Sewn Seeds BOM?  If not you should check out Jenn’s sample.  No it’s not done, but it’s coming along enough for you to get an idea.  We are starting a new session on Saturdays for those of you who want to do this BOM.  The first month you will need to be at the store for a few hours (approximately 2.5 hours) so that I can tell you the tips and secrets and you can make some decisions and buy some supplies.  Last chance this week to sign up!  The class starts on Saturday @9am!

This is a 10 month BOM.  Months 2 –10 it is up to you whether you want to bring your machines and embroidery or if you want to just come in and get your files!  

Not only do you get the files to make the Premium Quilt, but you also get the sample quilt files as a bonus! You get files for all machine types!  YOU MUST BE ABLE TO DO AT LEAST A 5X7 HOOP!

When: Saturday 10/31 @9am to 11am (will be last Saturday of every month unless noted) Cost: $12/month or $120 if you want to buy outright.  You however you have to come in every month for the files!   I have two people so there is still room for you!  Need a machine?  We sell them!

Hosted by: Jenn Shushnar

This is my BOM so far!  Premium Version I have almost another row ready to attach!  Come in and check it out!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

I have one thing for you this week!  These are the hot Top This kid hats!  From the picture you make a child's hat and on top you put one of these awesome and cute toppers!  We have kitties and Penguins coming in soon but they are pre-orders!  These are under $10 a hat!  If you have a kid in your life and can knit come and get them!  I'm still trying to figure out if I made one if I could get it on Abbie or Bernie's little furry heads!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hello all

I will admit I am a very boring person!  I work from 7am to 3pm at day job and then if I'm lucky i got to the gym for 20 or 25 minutes.  I then go work all evening at the store.

So when I say I don't know what I did last week and I didn't take any pictures it's the truth.  I know I got 8 of the Sewn Seeds BOM Blocks done.  I think I have between 8 and 16 blocks still to do before I sew the next round and take a picture for you.  The countdown is on though!  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I also have been knitting my Steeler Cowl.  I have decided though that after 8 games I will start a second one.  That way I can get two gifts out of this versus just one really really big one!

I think that's about it.  I'm going to go watch the Dega Race and maybe flip to the Steeler game every once in awhile.

Have a great week everyone!

Embroidery Club @Quilters Depot


Do you have an embroidery machine that is collecting dust.  You know the one you always say you want to do projects on.  As long as you know how to use it register for one of our awesome Embroidery Club Projects!

Interested in a Machine?  We sell Brothers!  Yes most of you know it but maybe it hasn't sunk in!

This month we are making Mr. Turkey!  Next Month I think we have some awesome skate ornaments.  Make them for the skater/hockey player in your life!  Heck even a NHL fan would love one of these!

Machine Embroidery Club—Mr. Turkey:  Come join us as we make Mr. Turkey for a Thanksgiving decoration.  We will make his face, wings and tail.  You will need to supply his body.  Use a real pumpkin, a foam pumpkin, or a glass bowl could be used and filled with candy or potpourri.  Verna did buy a few pumpkins so if you need one she said she will give you one. You will need to bring your machine, a 5x7 hoops and your threads and notions!
Cost:  $15 When: Session 1: Thursday, October 22nd @1 to 4pm.  Session 2: Thursday, October 29th @6 to 9pm.  Hosted by: Verna Spargo

What's New @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

We have a lot of pictures for you!

Here is a picture of our newest book!  Below is the panel that makes it.

  For those of you who were at our Debby Brown Event or for those of you who have Handi Quilters; We have the new feet!  I want this glide foot so bad for my Original Sixteen I have at home.  If you have an older machine you too can get these feet.  We just have to order you an adapter kit.  Just let me know!  Bonus Points if you know whose hand is holding the feet..........lol

 Skacel Woolie Bullie.  This is an awesome yarn!  Are you a doll maker?  Makes great hair!

More Yarn!  I will warn you I think that blue is going to be bought.  Not sure what I'm going to make out of it, but if you like it save me please and come buy it..........lol

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi all!

Brrrrrr!  My employees will tell you I'm mean because I won't turn the heat on yet.  I even told mom to make she dresses warm tomorrow because I didn't turn the heat on.......lol

This week on Monday I designed a new ball cap to show off the Persona!  You can come in and make this $FREE$ cap and try out my newest favorite machine!   I just wish I had more time to play with it!  Have a special event or do you want to start a small business?  Then the Persona is the machine you want for all your hard to hoop items.

I have been working slowly on my Hoop Sisters BOM.  I think I am in Month 6.  I also have been working on my Steeler Cowl.  I was going to take a picture this morning of it, but Abbie is getting her fur all over it so that's not going to happen!

What's New @Quilters Depot!

We love fabric!  I don't want to think about the season in these new fabrics but they are cute!  Come get this awesome Snowman panel. Would make an awesome door hang for a college room or apartment!  It has three coordinates.

This Week W/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all

Yes  I know I am a little late today.  There are 20 very tired ladies on their way home or they are already home as you read this.  Our Quilters Depot Fall retreat  was this weekend.  Stay tuned to Tuesday's Blog for pictures of a lot of great projects!

Me personally I got 20 blocks done for the BOM!  That means I am officially on month 6!  I am also so close to being caught up on my Steeler Cowl.  Hopefully by the end of "Once Upon a Time" tonight it will be caught up!

Have a great week everyone!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

So this is my Sunday that I sit down and do the newsletter.  That and laundry.......lol

So I am a little late in posting this blog.

I have been working on the Persona all week.  I have been training staff and making sure you all can make a Buctober baseball cap if you come in for demo!  I am not sure what I will do if the Pirates lose on Wednesday.  Maybe I will switch it to Let's go Pens then.........lol

If you have not seen the Persona come check it out!

I have also been working on my Hoop Sisters BOM.  This is going to be my retreat project.  Maybe I can finish two months.  We shall see.

I have alo been working on my Steelers Cowl.  I am in the middle of game two.  Yes, I am behind as usual.  I did remember to take a picture of it.  This is going to be one heck of big cowl.........lol

This week brings packing for the retreat!  Not only what projects I want to work on, but of course clothes and what will be taken to sale!  

Hope you have a great week!
