~2019 Carbon County Fair Quilt Block Contest~

As a follow-up to last weeks' newsletter, pictured above is contest winner Judy Heffelfinger and her First Place block. 

Congratulations, Judy!

Just a reminder to our customers that we are still offering this service.  Now is a great time to get those scissors sharpened so they're ready for your fall projects!

How it works:  Steve Hansut will be picking up scissors at the shop on Fridays and dropping them off on Friday of the following week.  

Pricing will be as follows:

Scissors with up to a 4-inch blade:  $5.00
Dressmaker & Medium Scissors:  $7.00

Please note:  Payment is cash-only, due at pickup.

Note also that some scissors can't be sharpened because of specific metal content and/or structural problems and all sharpening will be at Steve's discretion.  If your scissors are unable to be sharpened, they will be returned at no cost to you.

Scissors must be dropped off at the shop by 5pm on Fridays.

~Clockworx Quilt Class~

Please note:  this class has been re-scheduled for January, 2020 and has been split into three sessions instead of two.

Instructor:  Sharon Gower
This class uses the Clockworx 49” x 71” quilt paper-piecing pattern by Judy Niemeyer, which is a Cut Loose Press pattern.  It is different than a traditional Quiltworx pattern in that it utilizes various tools and Charm Elements to create fast, fun, projects and layouts aimed at the beginner or a quilter that simply wants to try out a fast project, learn a new technique, or how to use a new tool.

This will be a 3-session class on consecutive Saturdays and will be held at the Palmerton Library located across the street from the shop.  

Session ONE:  Saturday, January 4th, 2020 10:30am - 3:30pm
Session TWO:  Saturday, January 11th,2020 10:30am – 3:30pm
Session THREE:  Saturday, January 18th, 2020 10:30am - 3:30pm

Class Fee:  $60 (includes all three sessions)
The Clockworx class also requires:
(1) Clockworx Cut Loose Press Pattern - $3.50
(1) Charm Element Pack #20 – $24.50
(1) Add-A-Quarter Ruler
***Pre-work is required and will be provided upon class registration.***
