Lots Happening as we roll into the fall!  
We've had new lines arrive over the last week!

Colorama II Batiks by Benartex - an entire line!
DryBrush by Wilmington - 13 new colors!

On September 14th Ann celebrates her 1 Year Anniversary owning the QuiltBug by sponsering an Open House.  All types of fun stuff will be happening that day.  Benartex fabrics will be in the shop all day talking about their Batik line.  Kathryn Greenwold will be here appraising quilts, and other fun happenings will take place throughout the day!  Stop in and celebrate with us! 

The QuiltBug is looking for about 5 good, basic, used sewing machines.  We'll donate them to a local Senior community that Ann will be visiting weekly in the fall.  If you have one that works and is just in need of a tune up, we'd love to have it.  This will allow some Seniors to get back to sewing, but more importanly bring them together to socialize with friends over a common hobby.  Thanks for your help:)
