Ginny has put together some spring 5" square charm packs! Each charm pack is $11.49. As Julia stated on her Facebook Live Event last night...they would make great Easter Eggs
or hearts and flowers for spring!It's NOT too late to join us this year for the Moda My Favorite Color is BOM. Receive all fabric, binding, pattern, and group participation for $125! Call us today to register or sign up HERE
Join us for My Favorite Color is Moda BOM Saturday, March 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 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.
I thought this was a ceative marketing idea, so just had to bring it into the store! This box of cards, holds patterns for 40 blocks! You can order yours HERE or join us for a Let's Welcome Spring Mystery Quilt Block Group!Starting Monday, March 22nd, Creekside Quilting will be hosting a Mystery Quilt Block Group using this deck of cards. We will pull a card each Monday morning for 12 weeks and create the mystery card quilt block pulled. The reveal will be at 10:30 am each Monday morning, and if you come into the store for the reveal, and bring your previous weeks quilt block for show and tell, you will be eligible for a weekly prize from those present at the store! When we are done in 12 weeks, we will each have 12 blocks to make or start to make a new quilt top! Use your spring floral fabrics, if you want!

Upcoming Classes and Events in February
***PLEASE NOTE 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.
