June 2017 Newsletter

Little Cottage Quilt Shop        June 2017 Newsletter

Here comes summer & we are currently on “vacation”.  (I use that term loosely, very loosely.) No rest for me though, I’m swamped & so far behind I can’t see the light of day. We are working at our little ranch as well as at the Cottage trying to get caught up on neglected chores. LOL !! Maybe, someday, I might just catch up, in the meantime, I have a newsletter to write. (wink)

There is always lots happening here at the Cottage. It’s a full month with exciting new arrivals, events and fun. Be sure to mark your calendars for these dates so you don’t miss out on your favorites. Our fingers are crossed that the new Edyta Sitar fabric release will arrive this month. Watch LCQS FB page for the announcement.   Here are just a few of the new arrivals this past few weeks. Texas fabrics, sparkly fairies, glow in the dark Halloween fabrics & a new vintage sewing collection to name a few.

  

  

Don’t forget to pick up this months Barn Quilt B.O.M. kit, Block 2, the “Welcome block”. They are all so cute !! I just love this fun quilt. Each month the kit is different fabrics. $9.99 ea

 

June Grab Bag Challenge

You don’t want to miss this month’s Grab Bag Challenge. This month, because we have had so much going on and are so far behind, we thought we would let you come up with the pattern for the project.   SOOOOOOO;

Here’s the scoop; take the 3 yards of darling, Northcott’s “Strawberry Patch” fabric and make up something fabulous. It can be anything, clothing, bags, table linens, a quilted throw, what ever you imagination and creativity comes up with. Then bring it into the shop before the end of the month. The first club member to bring in a finished project with the “Strawberry Patch” fabric, will win a $25 gift card . That pays for your Grab Bag ! (well almost, the state has to take their chunk) Get your creative juices flowing and make up something fun and fabulous. After all, what would summer be without delicious juicy strawberries.  Can’t wait to see what y’all come up with !

I hope y’all had a nice & safe Memorial Day week end. I look forward to hearing about it when we are back at the shop on Monday June 5.

See y’all then,   Donette
