Staycation at Matterhorn Nursery

This year Quilter's Crossing held a two day "Staycation" at lovely Matterhorn Nursery! The weather held for us on Saturday and we enjoyed touring the gardens. We always pick up some little tidbit to make our gardens grow! We feasted on delcious food for two days and sewed to our hearts content! We had some fun and games with our Quilting Yankee Swap and with a QC quiz - where we had a 3 way tie between Gig, Corrine and Pat! We made new friends with a group of ladies who joined us from Connecticut. May be you can sneak away with us next time?!

Pumpkins aplenty!

Just beautiful and inspiring!

Even clouds couldn't dampen the beauty!

Our "home" away from home! The Rose Cottage

Scenes from St.Louis - Baby Lock Tech 2009!

Michael and I traveled to St. Louis at the end of August for our first Baby Loch Tech! Hard to believe Baby Lock could improve their sergers but they out did themselves! We learned alot and can't wait to get the Koala cabinets, Sashiko and the new Evolution serger into the shop!
The new Evolution and Enlighten sergers have Extraordinaire Threading! Thread ALL your loopers with just the touch of a single button!
The new Sashiko machine - check out these stitches! They look like traditional hand stitched!

Moving Along Row By Row!

Our Block of the Month - Quilting Row by Row is moving right along! Some of the ladies even have their rows put together! Looking good!

We're in the Army Now!

Jodi and I met these two wonderful gals, Robin and Lisa, when they stopped by the shop to buy lining fabric for a tote bag project. As they began to explain their project to us we were so moved. Army wives at Westpoint, they are making 140 tote bags for fellow Army wives whose husbands are on duty out of old uniforms. What a great ideas! They were unsure how to construct the tote, so they spent a day with us at QC and we assisted them in designing a pattern. Isn't it darling? But what an undertaking! So we offered them help! Want to join us? Stop in on Thursday, Oct 22 at 10:30 am and help sew an Army tote!
