Update from The Country Quilter for January 2021
Thank you to all our loyal quilters who continued to support us during this past year of uncertainty.
The shop will be closed during the provincial lockdown.
We saw many stash quilts and ufo projects completed, as well as new projects started. Meters of batting and wide backing fabric went out the door indicating that projects were being completed.
Yesterday I sewed some fabric into a quilt that was left over from a maternity dress I made when expecting my now 35-year-old son! Yes, it has geese wearing kerchiefs on it!! A fun memory to stitch into the quilt.
We still have 100% cotton batting and 80/20 batting by the meter. Silk, wool and poly batting are available in queen size. New 108-inch backings arrived as we were closing for the holidays.
We have elastic and the filter fabric for mask making, Steam a seam, spray baste, mistie fuse, solid black cotton and much more. New batiks have arrived too.
Our quilters continued to be exceedingly generous with their talents, making baby quilties for the hospital, toddler quilts for Iqaluit, and larger lap and single size quilts for the veterans’ home. In November we donated 42 quilts to the home, and have more that arrived after that. These will be passed along in the new year. Our CANHAVE sale of handmade items brought in $150. More of these items are still available. We also look forward to selling our unique door quilts later in the year for CANHAVE. Keep up the good work!
If you need something to help you with your projects the shop will be open for back door pick up on Wed. Jan. 13, 10am – 1pm. You need to email your order in ahead of time so that things can be prepared for pick up. email@example.com
Looking forward to seeing everyone in the better times to come. Please take care and stay well until then.
May 2021 be a happier, healthy year for us all.
