The Shop Hop bags have arrived! Nebraska Shop Hop is from March 31 – April 10, 2011. There are more prizes than ever for participants. So save some time, grab your sewing friends and reconnect with this great state of Nebraska. The sand hill cranes will be in our state during Shop Hop…. What a sight!

I Love sewing, LLC is now on Facebook. So be sure to become our friend. We are in the process of adding pages. We plan to keep a calendar of upcoming events, a photo album of past events, and even some helpful tips. Let us know what you would like to see on our Facebook page.

Sunday Runners is scheduled this Sunday from 12-5pm. It looks like a great project. Dee and I really love Avery, the fabric used from Fine Lines. It is perfect for Mother’s Day.

Shop Hop countdown…..54 days and counting!

Finally, a sunny day!!! The weather forecast for the next ten days looks great with a major warm up. Everyone who visits our shop has been busy….quilting or weddings, babies, birthdays, Mother’s Day, and graduation. Thank you for sharing your finished products with us. We are very happy to see your handiwork. Sharing ideas leads to new ideas…no different in quilting and handiwork than in science and technology.

Mark your calendars for the Nebraska Shop Hop from March 31 through April 10th. Shop hop bags and binders will be in the store around February 18th. The theme is Charming Nebraska!

By popular demand the Schlep Bag is back for TGIF, this Friday evening from 5:00-9:00pm. You bring the fabric and we provide some instruction and a light supper. You will go home with a fun bag that fits any need. Call us for fabric instructions at 727-7869.

Our Sunday Runner Club meets on Sundays, February 19 from noon to 5:00pm. The project is “Polka Dot Piecrust”, page 22 from “Let’s Do Lunch” book by Atkinson Design. Like always, the kit is “Ready 2 Sew” (pre-cut) and yes, we have lunch. Call us and reserve a spot.

Stay tune for the Shop Hop countdown…..54 days and counting!

Fabric for the PIECRUST Table Runner will be different in class.

Snow Day Part 3

Great! American Patchworking & Quilting, April 2011came in the mail today in time for some serious study during another snow day.  I peruse my quilting magazines intensely, from cover to cover enjoying the photos, colors, stitches, and layout and design.  I love the articles.  And this is the only printed publication where ads are read with zeal. Once more I am inspired to continue on in my quilting journey.  The publishers of quilting magazines really know how to win an audience.  This month’s edition features Laundry Basket Quilts’ Edyta Sitar.  Besides being a great artist and quiltist she has wonderful tips about quilting:

1. “Never put an unfinished quilt away”
2. “Mix and match your fabrics”
3. “Help your community”
4. “Appreciate every opportunity to create”

I’m taking Edyta’s advice. I plan to work on some unfinished projects today and appreciate the opportunity to create….a great way to spend a snow day.

P.S. Join us for AccuClub!
