This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Happy 60 degree Sunday!

woooohooooooooooo i love this weather.  Sunshine and warm air!  I know it's not going to last but if we have this a couple times this month I'd be happy!

Whoever said Sunday is for rest hasn't lived my life.

Let's see.
2 x loads laundry and then re-make the bed.
Cook some food for the week.
Long Armed a quilt.
Vacuumed  my room.  Man was it dusty.

All of that was before noon!  Then I started the Store work.  Still need to look at some inventory stuff and I need to get emails ready to go out this week.

What I want to do is take a nice long nap with the sun in my face!

So this week I finished Month 8 of my BOM!  Month 9 is 16 blocks.  Month 10 is 4.  That Means I can use my fingers and toes to count how many I have left!  wooooooohooooooo!

Other than that it's my normal hectic week!

have a good one!

Belated I love my Quilt Shop Sale @Quilters Depot!

Yes,  Jonas's wrath made it impossible to have our I Love My Quilt Shop Sale on Saturday.

This is now to your advantage because instead of having a one day sale it's now three days!

WE NEVER HAVE A SALE LIKE THIS!  So pay attention and come on in!  Weather should be alot warmer this week with rain.

Here's the facts!

Love your Local Quilt Store?
Quilters Depot Loves you! That is why we are expanding this sale!
This was going to be a one day sale, but Jonas did you a favor!  

 The below sale will run from 
Monday 1/25/16  
through 
Wednesday, January 1/27!  
That includes Tuesday night until 8pm!

Everything is 20% off in the store. 
No coupons needed!

 Excludes classes, Handi Quilter and Brother Machines!

However, this is compoundable with the Winter Clearance Sale! 1 yard wonders, playpen, 4 shelves of fabrics, and yarn!  There might even be a few things mixed in.  Look for the dots on notions!

That means some items are up to 45% off! 

We never compound so you won't see savings this deep probably for a year!

Come check out the Brother machines.  Our prices are so low I get yelled at constantly by the Brother people!

Come warm up and show us your Love for Your Local Quilt Store!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Morning everyone!

Hope you all have dug out from the Blizzard Jonas.  As you know we closed the store yesterday.  I have been having to get to work during blizzards for 18 years at the bank and have never appreciated that we didn't have the option to stay home. My thirty minute commute probably would hae taken me 2 hours.............lol

So if it was an inconviance to any of you I apologize.  The safety of ME, my employees and YOU are always my top most priority.  If you listen to me you have stash so hopefully you all were able to spend some time sewing!

Hopefully it also gave the landlord time to do the parking lot..........lol

I live in the most southern part of Allegheny and we saw 11inches.  A few miles away reported 18 so I guess it was really as wild as the news was reporting.

I have been working on Month 8 of the BOM.  I am about half way done with that month.  I hope to finish by end of the week and move on to 9!

I blocked my knitted doll ornament but did not get it sewn together to show you.  Maybe tonight I will do that.

Stay warm and blogs will be slow this week due to the fact being closed Friday night I didn't log anything in and I didn't grab the camera.

There will be one Blog on Monday and that's it.  I know I'm lazy!

Whats New @Quilters Depot!

We got two new things in this week!

First up is the Penguin Top This Hat to knit!  There were four but one is already being held for someone!  If I had someone to knit this for I would.  I keep thinking would I wear it if I tried to make it bigger.........lol  We have some of the other variations in the store also but this makes a great gift for the little penguin fan in your life!



I'm excited to tell you we are now stocking OESD Stabilizers!  We have at least 12 different types!  I didn't count but it is at least that many!  Come in and try them out and if there is one from OESD that we don't have or a different size let us know we will order it in!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot!

Hi All!

Wrap up in those Quilts you have and stay warm!  I just keep thinking 6 more weeks and it will be over.  I guess if we keep getting teased with one or two semi warm days it makes the rest of the week ok.

I can handle cold i just hate the white stuff!

I promised you I was going to work on stuff this week!  I finished Month 7 in my Hoop Sisters BOM.  This is my pile of about 4 months  of blocks to sew together.  Month 8 is only 12 and I think Month 9 and 12 are lower too.  At least I'm hoping!



I also participated in the Matryshka Doll Class.  Here are my pieces.  There's a front and back body, a face, hair, an apron, a scarf.  Yes I know it doesn't look like much.  I have to block them and then I can put it back together.  Yes, It's my penguin version!



Hope you all have a good week!  I'm not promising anything getting done.  I seem to accomplish more when I don't!

Remember, the one with the most stash wins!

p.s.  GO PENS!  GO STEELERS!

What's New @Quilters Depot!


Happy Monday all!

We have a few new bolts for you.  Check out these pretty batiks!



Yes these are Christmas!  The fun of being in business when they come in two weeks later!  However, I think you can get away with these as just winter so see they are just in time for you to buy!


Beer Cans!  You know you need a quilt for the man in your life with this in it!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

Batten down the hatches.  Man it's windy out there.  I don't know how many of you were out early Saturday but it was a nasty icy morning!  I know I slide through at least one stop sign!

Hopefully the 1 inch at a time they keep saying will be low enough for salt trucks to do their jobs!

I am already waiting for Spring!

I know I said I hoped to finish my Month 7 BOM, but that didn't happen.  We always have great expectations.  I did clean the office and find more things to put on my W.I.P Challenge before I turned it in!

I am not making any promises of what I'm going to finish this week.............lol

Have a great week and stay warm!

This Week w/Jenn @Quilters Depot

Hi all!

I guess Winter has finally arrived.  Let's hope two days of warning of an inch of snow in and around downtown will give the snowplows plenty of notice so we don't have trouble getting out and about tomorrow morning!

I have been sick with a nasty cold for about 8 days.  Hoping Magically 10th day it just goes away!

I have been working on my Steeler Cowl.  I am on game 4!  lol  I did not get as many of my BOM blocks done as I wanted last week.  I hope to finish month 7 this week.  I think I have said this several times now!

I also have been working on my W.I.P Challenge list .  I have 8 things so far.  There are two I'm not sure if I'm putting on the list or not. We shall see!

I did tell Mom never to let me close for three days in a row!  I am going freaking nuts.  I have work to do but cannot do it from home and the less you do the more tired you get!  Or it could be the cold but I'm going stir crazy not being at the store!

Stay warm.................
