 If you have a FOOTBALL LOVIN' household, you're going to want to whip up one of these cute runners!  

Lily made this last Sunday in about 45 minutes, just before the guests started to arrive to watch the Colts game!  Football fabric binding finishes a fun panel.

Mark your calendars, and come prepared to eat, play & love (Creative Grids Rulers, that is!)

Saturday September 20th, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m 
at Charlotte's Sew Natural, downtown Newton.

We'll have Creative Grids 




We'll have a variety of CREATIVE GRIDS RULERS available for you to "test drive", so bring your fabrics (or we'll have some too).

Let us know if there's one you've always wanted to try and I'll be sure to have that on hand for you.

At the end of the day, we'll draw to give away some rulers, of course!

 Last week we introduced the new CREATIVE GRIDS SCRAP CRAZY 6 non-slip ruler.  We have several projects made with this, using fat quarters or scraps.

Gwen's version uses an assortment of hand-dyed and batik blue & yellow fabrics. 

 She added a couple of borders to make it a bit larger too.

 We've bundled the same and have ready for you to pick up or see it here:

We'd love to show you how this works.

Can't make it in?  See a video demo here:

Mary used scraps from previous baby quilts and will back with 60-inch wide CUDDLE!  

We have a very reasonably priced pattern for this project. Many ways to set these blocks - wacky or as regular as a "crazy" quilt can be. Lots of fun, either way!

See lots of CREATIVE GRIDS videos on their YouTube Channel, here:

Instruction, patterns, encouragement, camaraderie all for one low price!  $48/year

This SAMPLER QUILT CLASS will start in September, and meet every month, the 3rd Thursday, morning and evening, for an entire year.

BORDERED ROWS by MARTI MICHELL, will feature 12 unique quilt blocks, using her SET L TEMPLATES.

Instructor Mary Eilerts will guide you through, step by step, from selecting fabric to perfecting your technique, producing a beautiful quilt.

Better yet, this is a lecture/demo class, so you don't have to haul in all your sewing supplies.

We'll gladly help you select fabrics that suit your taste & decor, or you can use Marti's beautiful fabrics, TOMORROW'S PROMISE, pictured here, by Maywood Studios.

  We won again, and next "at bat" will be Monday Sept. 29 through Wednesday Oct 1!
