Quilt Mercantile is CLOSED this Saturday & retreat reminders

Spring is here!
We hope you are enjoying the beautiful sunshine, spring rains, and the green grass that shows spring has arrived.  Our store will be CLOSED this Saturday for the holiday weekend.  We have many new fabric arrivals and several new samples in the store.  We plan to post a picture on Facebook with the very beautiful tuffets sent to us by Sylvi Sealy.  She is teaching a retreat in July.  This piece of furniture is a wonderful extension of your passion for quilts.  Below are several of the retreats we have scheduled.  We hope you will join a retreat or drive out to see the new fabric arrivals.

Alice Wilhoit A-Z weekend retreat April 15th-18th & July 22nd-24th. This April Retreat with Alice is a Great Deal!   (ONLY $135 for three nights and four days! This price includes lodging and teacher fees)   Alice is a published author that teaches all over the United States.  We are fortunate to have her in our area.  Need help to finish or get motivated on one or more of your UFO's?  Alice says this retreat is for you!  Drag out those unfinished projects! You know, the ones you put away because you were stuck. Sign up for a retreat with Alice and get the help you need to complete those projects. Or just start something new.

(no UFO)
