Creekside Quilting Newsletter 09/07/2021

 Come wish Barb a Happy Retirement today, Tuesday, September 7th from 10-5.  She has been at Creekside Quilting for 15 years and will be missed tremendously by both our wonderful customers and our staff!  

What's New @ Creekside Quilting?

  Patrick Lose Fabrics is what's new at Creekside Quilting!  His GLAM fabric line arrived last week, and it makes a great blender!  The colors are vibrant and oh so pretty!  You can view and order all 36 bolts of the full line HERE

  This 17 bolt line of flannels is from Primitive Gatherings and is called Yuletide Gatherings.  I look at this fabric line and think of a cozy flannel strip quilt....what about you? You can view and purchase the fabric HERE 
 This two-thirds of a yard panel is part of the Yuletide Gateherings line. You can purchase this HERE

  Dianne made this quilt from the Villa Rosa pattern called Solar Flare.  I think it is just striking and it is straight back from the front door...making a "come hither" statement!  Come on in and check it out!  The pattern can be ordered HERE and we do have more patterns on the way!  Just call and let us know if you want us to set one aside.

  This quilt is made from the V and Co. pattern called Ombre Carnival.  You can order the pattern HERE and check out our Ombre fabrics by V and Co. HERE

 Dianne also made this crazy quilt using the pattern Atkinson's Designs Dovetail!  You can order this pattern HERE

What's New with Pfaff?

Pat will be at the store to clean sewing machines on Wednesday, September 15th from 10-3.  Drop off your machine any time before that and get in the cue for cleaning!

Sewing Machine Tidbit of Information:  Don't pull thread backwards through your sewing machine.

When you need to change thread, snip it from the spool and pull it through the needle and out of your machine. Pulling it backwards can cause lint to come off the thread and build up in your machine. 

What's Happening @ Creekside Quilting in September?

***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.
***PLEASE NOTE that cancelation of classes will be refunded up to 1week prior to the class date and time.  After that, the instructor is expecting you and there will be no refunds for cancelations.
