October OPPORTUNITIES at Quilt Mercantile/Quiltagious Quarters
Cooler weather is upon us! We have several education opportunities. Sending this email to give you a quick look. If you find yourself needing some edge to edge quilting done this Fall, send us an email. We will get you in contact with some great long arm quilters (right now I have one that can get your Christmas projects done)! Have you always wanted a quilting machine but the price point has been too high??? On October 12th, we are due to receive the newest member of the Handi Quilter machines. The price point for this machine on an eight foot table is $4,995. This is going to be a wonderful addition. We service many types of sewing machines besides Elna, Bernina, & Janome. Give us a call and ask to talk to Deven to see if we can help with your machine. Let us know asap if you want to join any of these wonderful "get away & have fun" opportunities:

Hoop Wranglers first Wednesday meeting Oct. 7th from 10-2. This embroidery machine group is lead by Pamela Hansen. This group is intended to be a help and support for you in the wonderful world of Embroidery Machines and all the various supporting paraphernalia. There are so many ins and outs to this wonderful world. Pamela's desire is to be able to introduce you to techniques, ideas (old and new) and stretch you! We are happy to share more information if you want to join the group and gain more confidence in using your embroidery machine.
Quilted Sweatshirt Jacket retreat with Pam Patton. Fall weather is about to take over. This is the perfect time to finish up something you started, pick one of these two styles and get a jacket made in a weekend, or just join the group and sew on any project you want with the company of fun fellow quilters. Pam is a master at making bags and she has experience with many quilting techniques. Join the group and get away from everything!
Hoop Wranglers embroidery retreat Oct. 20th-23rd. Are you ready to attend a GREAT retreat? From Pamela: October is when we will gather together with other like-minded ladies where you will receive encouragement to fuel your projects, learn new techniques, increase your knowledge of the embroidery machine world, and so many other related areas. Though this is an embroidery machine retreat, please feel free to invite your non embroidery machine friends who would like to attend to work on other sewing projects. During this retreat you can also look forward to an informational break out session on Embrilliance Embroidery Software! You will see the advantages of having this inexpensive embroidery software assist in your projects. If you desire, we can even load a trial version of this software on your PC. You will receive basic instructions on how to navigate the software capabilities and opportunities for your questions to be answered. Quilt Mercantile is now a dealer for Embrilliance and we are happy to help with purchasing this software. Only $139.95 for the basic Essentials program that we highly recommend. Don't own a machine yet?....no problem! We are happy to rent one of our demo machines. Email for more information.
Make and take October 24th 10-2:30 for $45. Teacher is Pamela Hansen. Embroidered Scissors case by Sweet Pea designs. We will make the smaller version during this class. Click here to see our sample. We encourage those that have interest in owning an embroidery machine to come take a test drive and finish this fun in-the-hoop project during class time! Class price includes the use of one of our Elna embroidery machines at no additional charge!!! These are perfect guild or retreat gifts.
We hope to see you in October! Since Quilt Market has been cancelled, we are open our normal schedule this October. Keep your eyes open for the amazing Handi Quilter "Demo Deals" later this month. Touch base by email if you want to be in the group to know pricing as soon as released!
