Hello QuiltBug Friends! Here's what's happening this month at the QuiltBug!
Shop Hop 2019 is in the final preparation stages now! Shop Hop will run from May 30th to June 9th. The theme is “Backyard Travel” The Grand Finishing Prize is a Sewing Machine with a value up to $1000.00. I have had the opportunity to meet with the other shops to plan, what a great team of people😊 Passports are on sale now. This year the shops involved are Adirondack Quilts, Brookside Quiltworks, The Joyful Quilter, Karen’s Quilting Corner, KC Framing and Fabrics, Log Cabin Fabrics, Pumpkin Patch and the QuiltBug.
This was postponed due to the weather ... Hold tight a new date will be announced shortly.
Ryan’s Case for Smiles is one the few volunteer organizations solely dedicated to helping kids feel better to heal better. While other great organizations focus on research and finding a cure, we work to improve the quality of life of children and their families as they undergo treatment. With every stitch, every yard of fabric and every pillowcase we get one step closer to our goal of helping kids with cancer and life-changing illnesses feel better to heal better.

Did you know we now carry Quilter’s Dream batting in various sizes, we have access to all types and can order for you anything we don’t have in the shop. We we don't have what you need let us know and we can get it.
Our next Top Off Day is April 7th at noon! Robbin will be in to deliver or receive your quilts.
Plan to drop off your quilt top or pick up a quilt from Robbie Sutton our Long arm quilter and is the owner of Pieceful Hollow Designs. She visits the shop the first and third Sunday of the month between 12 and 2p to accept your tops and review quilting options with you. That's Top Off Day:-)) If you can't make it on that day, you can leave your tops at the shop after you pick out a quilting design from her design book. Once Robbie picks it up you are well on your way to having a finished quilt! Robbie will call you when your quilt is done, and you can pick it up at the QuiltBug on any Top Off Day, or any time we are open.
