Hope everyone is having a great summer so far. I know we are here at Ellen's Quilting Corner. We just had a great Serger Savvy Retreat and let me tell you everyone learned a ton in 3 days! This retreat gave us lots of ideas for possible serger class for our future.
Just a few things to tell you about this month....
Block of the Month ladies remember that there is no meeting for July as it lands right on the 4 of July. Our next meeting will be Sat. Aug. 1st.
We will be closed on the 4th of July. West Burlington puts on some great festivities over that weekend so be sure to check those out.
The All Iowa Shop Hop has been going great for us, a lot of new faces this year. Just a few quick reminders for you... You must visit all 94 shops to qualify for the statewide prize drawing. You must visit all in one region to qualify for the regional prize drawing. You must visit 5 or more shops to qualify for the 5+ prize drawing. There is still a little over a week left of the shop hop, so there is plenty of time to get at least the 5+ done. Remember that your passport MUST be postmarked by July 3rd.
Row by Row Starts June 21st and runs until Sept. 8th. This is our first year in it and let me tell you we are really excited about it. We have our pattern all ready plus kits with our fabric for our row. We also did the fabric license plates ($5.99) and they are a fun little thing to collect as well. If you are planning a trip be sure to go to www.rowbyrowexperiance.com and see all the shops in each state that are participating.
Hope to see you soon, Ellen, Dave, Jenny, Sandy and Michele
