Community Outreach Programs
Our Souper Bowl Soup Can Drive has kicked off with a bang!  So far we have collected 92 cans of soup and given away 460 Loyalty Points to our customers who donated soup!  This is awesome and just warms my heart to see the donations!!  The soup cans will be delivered to the Urbandale Food Pantry after the Super Bowl, so please keep bringing in the soup cans and receiving 5 Loyalty points on your account for each can!  Together, we all win!

 Creekside Quilting is a proud sponsor of the Living History Farms Event How Does Your Garden Grow? Quilt and Textile Show February 14-16 and February 21-23!  I will be teaching a workshop entitled "Our Love of 1930's Quilts" on Friday February 21st starting at noon.  Then on Saturday, I will be teaching a Hexi Paper Piecing class.  Tickets are available on line through Living History Farms and they are taking pre-registrations for all of their classes and workshops!  This is going to be a wonderful event!  Check out their website to see all the wonderful events planned those two weekends!  Maybe on the 14th, you could take your honey!

What's New @ Creekside Quilting?

Due to the weather last Saturday, we postponed the start of the Lori Holt Sew Along with Susie.  We will start the sew along in February, so there is still time to sign up and join the group!

The Lori Holt Farm Sweet Farm fabric bundles are ready!  They have 28 Fat Eight cuts plus 2 one yard panels.

  This beautiful fabric line is in just in time for Valentine's Day projects.  It's fittingly called "Romance"!

 This vibrant floral fabric line from Timeless Treasures will warm up any day!  The colors are rich and the print is bold!  Very pretty!

  Kona has released a new color for the year, and it's called Splash!  My picture does not do the color justice, it really is a very rich turquoise!  Buy a charm pack and receive a free pattern from Kona, using this color wave!

The staff at Creekside has been very busy updating our displays!  Check out these new displays and me, my pictures do not do the projects justice!

 Barb made this very dynamic quilt using our Coconut Chips Pattern!  

  Karen M made this classic satchel using our Tiffany Pattern  

  Patty used our Gathering Hearts pattern to create a bowl of hearts combining both cottons and wool's!
