Creekside Quilting Newsletter 12/29/2020

  We used to always follow the Des Moines Public Schools for inclement weather closures....unfortunately, that won't work any more.  So, my best suggestion to you, is to check our website home page at or our Facebook page @creeksidequiltingiowa, or call the store (515)276-1977 before coming out in inclement weather. Just a few flakes, we are open, a blizzard, we are closed...anything in between? Check us out on our website, Facebook, or call us!

What's New @ Creekside Quilting?

  Exciting NEWS!  We recieved in all 41 bolts of Lori Holt's Flea Market line.  This line includes 3 panels!  We are so excited to have the fabric in the view the full line, go to our website HERE or watch yesterday's Facebook Live video or come on in the store and just check it out!

  Mid Month Madness is HERE and we are excited to announce, that on the 15th day of every month, you get 15% off anything you buy that fits in this XL 18"x16" project bag!  All you have to do is buy this project bag from Creekside Quilting for $25, bring it into the store on the 15th day of the month, and whatever you buy that fits in the 15% off.  Now you might be wondering how do you fit a bolt of fabric into the bag?  Well, it will be the fabric after cutting, but it still has to fit in the bag!  While we are closed on Sundays, should the 15th fall on a Sunday, just bring you bag in on Monday!

So come on in, buy a bag and start your year of saving in January!  **Bag must be with you on the 15th of the month to get the 15% discount.  ff you like to order online, you still must purchase the bag but we will do the price adjustment on our end.  Order your bag HERE

 Oh my gosh!  Have you ever watch Gudrun Erla on Tuesdays?  Well, her show is awesome!!  And I love her new book Stripology Mixology 2!  Pat loves Gudrun and her book too and is going to start a group on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 1-4!

This group is for Gudrun Erla fans of GE Designs!  Gudrun has a new book out "Stripology Mixology 2".  Her 13 pattterns in this book are for beginners to intermidiate skills. 

Pick a favorite quilt from this book and join our Creekside Quilting Gudrun Eral Club. We will work on quilt blocks over the next 3 months.  We will discuss how we make Jo Jo, Harmony and Wanda quilt patterns.  And of course there will be show and tells...and plenty of great opinions to share!

Buy this book from Creekside Quilting and receive a 15% discount when you join the group also!  
Join this 3 month group for just $20.  Register HERE

Pat has a number of Gudrun's patterns and books and will also share her Gudrun projects with you!  Get 2021 off to a great quilting start!

***Participate all 3 months recieve a $20 coupon, which basically gives you the opportunity to get your registration fee back and spend your money AGAIN on something else you want in the store!!

 So, we have moved this group to the first Tuesday of the month in January, February, March and April starting at 10:30 am.  We will meet in the store or connect with you virtually. Bring your first project, fabrics, sewing machine and accessories and let's sew together for a few hours each month to get a head start on a year full of bench pillows!  Register HERE for instore and register HERE for virtual if you want to join us!  Bundle the group and the book at a discounted price HERE

  Join us for My Favorite Color is Moda BOM starting Saturday, February 6th at 10:30 am and meeting every month through November!  This group will meet and discuss the blocks of the month, go through tips and tricks to the patterns and of course show and tell!  Karen T. and Julia will be leading this group and sewing right along with everyone!

There are 31 blocks and they are all traditionally pieced. The block sizes vary from 9" to 36" which results in a nice sized quilt at 81"x99" We  piece blocks from February to November, which is nice because you can recover from Christmas before starting and it ends before next Christmas.
We have FOUR different color options! There is: 
 Coastal Cool reminds me of seaglass and tranquil white sand beaches. The colours are beiges and blues with a gorgeous periwinkle. 
 Primrose Garden is pinks and greens and yellow! Definitely a garden.
  Tropical Getaway is a riot of colour. Purple, pink, green, blue. Even a coral-orange. 
 Cookie Tin is Christmas, but not just green and red. There is a hint of green blue that really makes this colorway pop. I think Cookie Tin may be my favourite. 
If you want to participate using your own stash, you're welcome to do that as well.

The cost for the pattern is $12. The cost for the color wave kit of your choice is $12.50 a month and it includes meeting together in person for tips and tricks and the fabric kit of your choice for that month. We will meet either in person or virtually on the first Saturday of the month. This is the best part! You get to show off what you've put together and ooh and ahh over everyone else's work as well. Our first meeting will be February 6, 2021 at 10:30 am.

Upcoming Classes and Events in January

 if you are new to a class or event, you MUST pre-register for all classes and events!  Now with our classroom opening up, our social distancing space in the classroom, and people getting out more, you must pre-register for any class or event at Creekside Quilting.  Anyone arriving without having registered may possibly need to leave, unless there is ample room in the classroom.  This is for your safety as well as ours and we appreciate your understanding of this situation.  Thank you!

***PLEASE NOTE before you come to class, make sure your sewing machine is in good working condition and has all the necessary supplies you will need to run the sewing machine. A good understanding of how to use your sewing machine is a must. Sewing classes require a basic sewing kit and quilting tools.
