Creekside Quilting Newsletter 06/19/2018
We're so glad you're here!
Lost and Found
Last week, a quilt top and an insulated coffee container was left at the store. I'm sure someone is worried sick with what happened to their quilt top. If you can describe it, please call us at (515)276-1977 to claim.
What's New @ Creekside
We received this beautiful Christmas fabric in last week. It's called White Christmas and it is absolutely gorgeous!
We now have the Langer Quilt Designs pattern in the store to make this quilt using the Patrick Lose Black and White Pinwheel. It's fun and easy to put together.

We have a Pfaff educator coming to the store on July 19th from 1-4 to do a make and take on our new Performance Icon’s. She is bringing in 11 Performance Icon’s for us to use. The cost is $10 to cover supplies. Please sign up by July 1st so we can get the Icon's ordered for the workshop. I’m very excited for this opportunity!
You have a few more days to visit our classroom and see the beautiful Farm Girl Vintage Quilts. Each of them are so gorgeous…please stop in anytime and take a look!
July is patriotic quilts and I’d love to have you drop yours off for us to hang in the classroom and put it on display!
August is Patrick Lose quilts.
September and November are still open. If you would like to have your own quilt show, please sign up with me to reserve the classroom. This is a great opportunity to share your quilts with other quilters. They do not have to be award winning quilts, but they can be. I know a lot of our customers “show and tell” their quilts at guild meetings, but not everyone gets to see them…
October is fall/Halloween
December is Holiday Theme
Thank you to all the wonderful people who are doing the All Iowa Shop Hop! We still have some of the Iowa fabrics left. For the Central Iowa Region Movie Star Pattern, we ran out of two bolts of fabric within the first two days. We brought out a third bolt of fabric and completed giving out 1/4 yd. cuts on Thursday morning. I then brought out some fat quarters and we still have a few left. We will continue to honor your Movie Star Pattern, in some way, to the best of our ability through the end of the month. I appreciate so much each of you for stopping in and saying "hello"! I love the All Iowa Shop Hop event! It amazes me how many people travel from all over the state and some of you we only get to see once a year! Thank you for your loyalty! Carry on with your hopping!
