Welcome to the Sweetest Month!
I have lots of exciting news to share with you! So many of you have stopped in to see the new Hydrangea line and Stonehenge, it’s flying off the shelves😊 
Sue Pritt is coming to the QuiltBug on Saturday 16th to teach her applique techniques. You can choose any one of the patterns we have in the shop and she will help you! I’m taking the class myself so come
on in and sit beside me. I love her wall hangings!
As I mentioned above, we have Stonehenge, mark your calendars to stop in March 2nd. The representatives from Northcott will be here to  reveal The QuiltBug Block for the 10th Anniversary celebration of Stonehenge. I am so excited to have the shop involved in this international Shop Hop! There will be a competition for consumers using the panel, or you can Shop Hop on line and collect 12 blocks and create a quilt from those blocks. Yes, a quilt designed by you, the QuiltBug customer, it can be entered the challenge! Take a chance to win a 9-day trip to England! Please stop in on March 2nd and meet the representatives and get ready to win that trip!

Shop Hop will run from May 30th to June 9th. The theme is “Backyard Travel” The Grand Prize if you finish 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😊 We will announce shortly when the passports will go on sale. 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.
