Farmhouse Newsletter

Hi Girls!!!

 

We have had a very nice summer at the Farmhouse. Have YOU been down to see us? We  have a lot to choose from and I am sure there will be something we have that will make your trip worthwhile.

We have a very good selection of 30’s fabrics along with the matching solids. We have fat quarters available for these already cut. We continue to have our Civil War fabric that so many people love. A nice selection of baby, navy/red, brights, black and whites , blenders, homespun, polka dots, Christmas, white on whites and cream on creams along with a wide selection of solids. Remember, we also love our backings. We have precut ones and some on bolts. Your quilt will look so good with one of our backings.

 

As you know, we started being open on Saturdays for the summer. Some of you have been down during that time and seem to appreciate the weekend opening. We definitely will continue this thru August and some of September; the hours are 10-3.  Our “school teacher customers” have enjoyed sewing on Saturdays with us during the summer adding to their joy of being off for awhile. We will definitely miss them next week when school starts back.

 

We have had several classes on Saturdays and we are very appreciative to our class teachers for the classes they have been willing to teach. A Saturday class a month in the fall may be an option. The Saturday classes this summer have been well attended. Let me know if you would like to be able to take a Saturday class during the fall.

 

We have had a lot of donations this summer of yarn, fabric, thread, books, etc. for use with our club charity, Farmhouse Friends. People know if they have lost a loved one or someone can no longer sew, we will take their stash and put it to good use.  We make blankets from fleece and flannel and also quilts from our cotton fabrics. We sew pillowcases and crochet blankets. We then pin a bookmarker to each item so the recipient will know where their item came from.  We send anything we cannot use to a club member who makes Dog beds from our leftover. We have a posting in the classroom of the number of items we have donated during the past two years. We so appreciate each club member of Mountain Laurel Quilters and other friends who donate their time and talent to this cause….you know…it takes a village, I mean “a club”, to make this happen.
