We really had a busy week! Deb and I got back from Spring Market in Pittsburg, PA. We brought back some new fabric lines, new rulers, new techniques, new patterns and books. The gals in the shop will be getting together to "play" with some new items and then we will be scheduling a "Happy Demo Hour" (after work and maybe some treats!) to show you some of what's new. While the cat (Ruth) was gone, the mice (Jodie and Penny) were busy re-arranging the shop! You need to come in and see what is new and see if you can find what is not as new, but in a new location!! Thimbleberries Club met on Thursday.
There was lots to show and tell.More...

When our customer, Holly Ervin, came to us and presented a community project providing quilts for the ambulance service, I jumped at the chance. The staff and customers at QNG have been very busy making toddler quilts for LifeCare ambulance service. Our goal was 20 toddler quilts with a pocket for a stuffed animal.
QNG provided the fabric and batting to any customer that would like to take part in the project. We have the greatest customers around! They came up with 30 quilts! The quilts will be given to any toddler that is transported by LifeCare.

It's a new month, we have spread the "quilting bug" to some new quilters and have some new "stuff" at Quilt N Go.
The new quilter's hard at work
It's spring here and even though we still have to be concerned about a frost at night so we can't put out flowers yet, We got out the fountain. It sounds so nice to hear the water through the OPEN windows. Flowers won't be far off. The hummingbirds have returned and the feeders are up. The gazabo top has been put up and lunch time is now OUT DOORS!
We are having fun putting together coordinating fat eighths by the dozen in packs. We are starting with the 1930's fabrics. You will be able to order them on our website under "Kits"
