The heat of summer is still here, but I'm writing this thinking of September just around the corner. I always think of September as the start of a new year, with the kids going back to school. There are many exciting classes being offered for you to start your quilting season, check them out! Katrina has a couple of options for machine applique - 'Hooterville' and 'Playing With Colour', our Row by Row pattern. 'Lepidoptera' is offered by Carrie, which is a series of monthly classes with the emphasis on piecing. 'Happy Jack' will get you ready for Halloween decorating; kits are available for this wall-hanging. Jeannie is teaching 'BQ3', which is a lovely quilt to showcase a large-print fabric. We have a bag class and machine quilting from Yvette. Heather is "fracturing" again and providing a sew day to whip up 'Intrigue', another Rose Cards quilt. And this is just September, there's sew much more! Get back to school at Quilting Confections!
Please join us in welcoming Tina to the staff of QC! She is a familiar face here, as she already teaches our machine embroidery classes and clubs. Now you can see her more often and ask her anything about embroidery, she's excited to share her knowledge! Sign up for Embroidery Basics, which starts in September.
Labour Day is Monday, September 3. Thanksgiving is Monday, October 8. The store will be closed these days.
