By now, you should have picked up your January blocks (if you haven’t, sign up soon!). Are you sitting there with your block tool and the fabrics trying to figure out where to start? If you are interested, Joyce is willing to have a “sit and sew your BOM” on the second Wednesday of each month. There will be a minimal fee of $5.00, you bring your sewing machine and cutting supplies and we’ll work on them together. Please call the store soon and make your reservation. This will be from 10:30-noon.

Hi, I’m Linda Thompson, QNG’s newest associate working on Tuesdays. I started quilting with Ruth about 20 years ago. I love bright colors, flowers and the smell of new fabric. I’m looking forward to meeting you as we all feed our quilting passion. Stop in the store and say Hi.

In case you are not familiar with QNG’s Employee Block of the Month, I thought I would explain.
Each employee chooses a theme, colorway or line of fabric. It is $2.50 per month for each theme that you choose. There are 5 themes, Black, White & Bold, Blue & White, Stars of the 30's, Spring Whispers, and Churn Dash.
If you choose to do all 5 themes, you will pay for 4 and get the 5th free.
We will use the Quick & Easy Block Tool for the patterns as we have for the last 9 years. We have the tool in stock for $16.95.
At the end of the year you will have (12) 12" blocks or in the case of the Churn Dash (24) 6" blocks. You can put them together by the pattern we give out at the end of the year or do as you wish with them.
Each person that signs up to do the Employee BOM MUST pick up their own block each month. No one else can pick up YOUR block. Those are the only rules. You have the entire month to get your block. If you need to drop out for any reason, we ask that you let us know ASAP so we can stop cutting your blocks.
