Gift of Time

What quilter couldn't use more time?  Now you are visiting friends and quilters bring along your calendar and plan to spend some time with them next year.

March 23-25, 2012     Material Girls Retreat                  $250

Spend your days sewing and laughing with quilters.  Cost includes 2 nights accommodation based on double occupancy with breakfast, meals and snacks on Saturday, individual sewing table, retreat project and more.  Hosted at the Cambridge Conference Centre.  Sew all day and all night if you can.  No cooking, no housework, just a ton of fun.

April 12-14, 2012     Quilter's Shop Tour

Book these dates with a car load of friends and tour the area quilt shops.  Each of the nine stores will feature 20% off regular priced fabrics.  Pick up a free pattern at each store.  Get your passport stamped to win the $1000 Grand Prize (about $110 to each store), the west $500 prize or the east $400 prize.  Each store has a daily prize worth $50, ballot with purchase. 
I have been ordering new fabrics with April events in mind.
