Makin' Tracks To Camp Quilt Shop Hop - July 1st to 31st
We are taking part in the 2nd Annual Shop Hop for this summer. Funds raised will go towards various camps in the region. Pick up your passport starting July 1st and then visit participating shops in the Peace Country to get it stamped and pick up the pattern blocks designed by Gwen Reimer, of Sew Kindness Designs. She has agreed to design a mystery quilt. After July 31st, and you have picked up all your blocks and completed your quilt, we will have a prize for the first person to bring in their completed quilt into the store. There will be more information to come. Antique Sewing Machine Event - July 1st to 31st
Last July our classroom was set up with vintage quilts. This July our classroom will be set up with close to 100 vintage antique sewing machines. There will be a great many machines for sale as well as other select vintage items. Lots of machines are in working order but some are for antique ornaments and will be priced accordingly. We will also have some machines set up in our mini museum on display for you to enjoy.
Come and have a coffee on us while you browse and take in what there is all to see. :)

Sew & Socialize: Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays are drop in sewing. Bring your own project or let us help you start a new one! We provide irons, cutting mats, and cutting tables at a variety of heights, you just need to bring your machine and supplies! Prefer handwork? Not a problem! Hand sewing and other hand work are welcome. Coffee, tea, and refreshments as well as a variety of snacks are available to you throughout the day. Meals are not provided, but you are welcome to bring a bagged lunch. No instructor is present on these days, so there is no fee, but staff will be around to help answer any questions you may have.
After June 25th, 2022 we will be taking a break from Sew and Socialize, and will resume August 2022.
Whip it Up Wednesdays: Hit a roadblock with your current project? Finished your first quilt top and now you are wondering how to bind it? Then this is the perfect class for you! On Wednesdays, one of our amazing instructors will be present and at your service to help you power through whatever step has been holding you back from getting that project finished. As there is an instructor present, there is a fee of $10 for Whip it Up Wednesday.
After June 22, 2022 we will be taking a break from Whip It Up Wednesday, and will resume in September 2022.
