FYI-Delaware Avenue is being resurfaced
Penn DOT is resurfacing Delaware Ave from Mauch Chunk Road to Rt. 248. Since last Thursday, no additional work has been done in front of the shop and parking has not been restricted. Unfortunately, Penn DOT is not providing shop owners with a work schedule. So, if walking from a side street is a problem for you, I suggest calling the shop the day you are planning to visit and I can give you a status report. 

New Shop Hours - Beginning week of Sept. 7th
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 10am to 5pm.
Saturdays from 10 am to 3pm

No appointments are necessary, but as a courtesy to your fellow quilters who may be at a higher risk, please wear your mask upon entering the shop and practice sew-cial distancing. Thanks.


Beginning  Quilting by Machine Graduate Program

This program has been designed for the graduates of the Beginning Quilting by Machine class, or anyone who has mastered the beginning quilting skills. It will build on the skills taught in this class and expand your knowledge beyond the Nine Patch and Monkey Wrench blocks. The new techniques include 8 HST's at a time, triple triangle squares, hourglass squares, diamond in a square, 4 flying geese at a time, and the use of templates.

Each week you will learn how to make two different 12" blocks. If you make the blocks from the same coordinating fabrics, you will have blocks for a beautiful Sampler Quilt at the end of the 5 weeks.
You can use your stash or purchase the fabrics from the shop. As always 10% Class Discount is applied to  fabric & supplies purchased for the class.
