March 2021 at The Country Quilter!

It has now been a year since we were able to get together. I miss seeing everyone and all the wonderful projects you create. Hopefully lots of unfinished things have emerged from the closet and have been completed. The shop will continue to be open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday from 9-1. (Limit 4 in the shop at a time)
Tuesday Finishing School has resumed. ( 9-12:30) You need to sign up as space is limited. $3.

For those who took the Bee Challenge keep busy! Bring your finished piece, with a label, to the shop by May 1st.
Lots of spring fabrics have arrived. These are perfect for placemats, table runners and pillows to update your decor for the sunny days ahead.

Specials for March include 25% off in stock books. The 40% off shelf has been restocked, making room for the new fabrics.
The 120” 80/20 batting has arrived, as well as silk bats. Fusible batting for placemats and runners is in stock.
Check out the new ergonomic rotary cutters and the awesome pin minders. (No more pins on the floor)

Remember, the shop is a drop off for the quilties for the Queensway Carleton Hospital.
Quilts should be approximately 24” square and please wash them before dropping them off.

We have now donated 52 quilts (lap to double size) to the residence for homeless veterans. Residents are moving in now. Your donation of a quilt can be dropped off when the shop is open. Any colour and pattern is welcome.

Stay safe in your sewing room!

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. thecountryquilter@hotmail.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.
