What tips can you offer to our readers?
For instance, from Susan (American Patchwork and Quilting, April 2014 Issue 127)
A Helping Hand
To hold long lengths of binding in place while pressing, I slip a circle of elastic over the narrow end of my ironing board. The elastic functions like an extra pair of hands!
What tips can you share??

Our binding class was a hit! We had several ladies with their 12 inch block who learned how to do a binding. But that is not all! They learned invaluable tips on how to avoid dog ears, sizes of needle, and how to get that perfect mitered corner on their project as well as others bits of wisdom. Join us for another class.

Have you heard about the upcoming Shop Hop? No-it’s not a dance- it’s a month long event in April. You get to visit all or any of the 12 participating quilt shops, browse and buy til your hearts is content or the money runs out. Every time I look on a nook or cranny I find something new. Doesn’t your heart just explode with ideas as you look around and talk with other quilters? And who know – your name might be drawn at one of the shops and you could win a $50.00 gift card. Each store will draw a name so you have the potential to win 12 $50.00 gift cards.
The passport is $5.00
Attic Window, Friends Quilting Basket, Quilts at the Marshall House, Quilted Memories, Quilts Plus, Everlasting Stitches, Hen House, Queen Bee, Sew Unique, Around the Block, Bernina Sewing Center and of course Quilt N Go.

Coming soon to Quilt N Go – Brother Scan-N-Cut CM250
We are excited to be carrying Brother’s new Scan N Cut machine. We should have it in stock by the end of February. Check out all the great things you can do with the machine at
Brother USAand on You Tube
There are 2 models CM100 and CM250. We will be carrying the CM250 with the added designs and accessories. Cost will be $429.00
This is not like the Accucut Go. You do not need to purchase dies. You can actually draw a design, scan it and then cut that design. Watch for more info when we are ready to demo it in the store.
