Quilt Mercantile Long Arm Club April 12th and April update


Quilt Mercantile April

We had a great time vending at the Dallas Quilt Celebration.  We hope you were able to attend.  The Terial Magic liquid stablizer was a huge success.  We sold out by 2 on Saturday.  If you missed buying some, we now have more in stock.  We also currently have the trunk show with her beautiful dimensional flowers in our store.  Come see!  The Cameo was also a huge success.  They sent an educator to help demonstrate and educate for the quilt show.  We learned quite a bit.  We have a sample machine in our store if you still have not seen this cutting system in action.  For those of you that have asked us for Bali Pops--  We now have a variety of these pre-cut Hoffman Fabrics batik 2 1/2" x 43" bundles.  Two of them are the hand-selected Judy Niemeyer Quilting sets.  These are used to make her Bali Bedrunner projects.  So beautiful!  We have just received the Ladies' Album fabric line by Barbara Brackman for Moda fabrics.  Also fairly new is the She Who Sews line by J. Wecker Frisch for Quilting Treasures.  We have many new fabrics, books, patterns, and notions.  We have several great classes coming up.  The Long Arm Club is brand new and the embroidery machine class.  We are planning to have a TRUNK SHOW by Brenda so you can come meet her and see how wonderful her embroidery samples look.  It will probably be Thursday night May 15th.  (More information in next update.)  Her retreat is full but her class still has some room.  We want to inspire many of you to start using your embroidery machine!   Pearl of P3 Designs is coming June and October this year because she is so popular!  We have room in both day classes and some spaces open in her October retreats.  E-mail with questions.    We hope to see you soon!

Want hands on experience?  Jackie is offering an afternoon class to work with these two rulers from 1:30-3:30 for $35 per person.   You will practice in detail how to use the Wave D Ruler to set the stem for feathers, and how to continue the stem around the corners. Once the stem is set, the feathers can be stitched in a continuous motion. Jackie will also teach the basic feather technique when applying them to the stem.  Limited to six students.  Sign up now!
