Scissors, Pinking Shears, and Knives
Mr. Leonard will be here from 2 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Nov. 16 sharpening scissors, pinking shears, and knives. You need to sign-up with us if you are going to bring in your tools that afternoon! Call 804.262.0005 or email us. Or you can drop off the tool before the 16th with us. Be sure to attach contact information - name, phone where he can contact you if there is a question while sharpening. If you bring pinking shears - he'll try to get an edge. If he can't, no charge for trying. If you are bringing a knife, it must be wrapped in a towel with a rubberband wrapped around it. Then place it in a ziplock bag with your contact information. Be sure to call us if you have any questions.

Consisting of 2 co-ordinated quilts
Rainy Day Umbrellas and Sun Day Parasols
Courtesy email registration is now available at: Katja's Quilt Shoppe
Guess I have to admit summer is over and it's gotten cooler. I even brought socks to Market. It was in the 40s when I walked to the convention center. We can almost sit with quilts that we're binding on our laps and not get over heated. Small holiday projects are being started and finished now. This is presuming the long armers have your big projects already. Let us help you get some one day projects started and finished. The classes listed above are one way to start. We have pillowcase kits with the directions included. We also have patterns for quick and easy table runners. Keep in mind that you can make decorations with orphan blocks too - pop-ups, table runners, pillows, wall hangings, tree skirts, and more. Let us know how we can help get your creative juices flowing.
Happy sewing this holiday season,
Phyllis and the QA Staff
