Christmas in April

Why start thinking about Christmas when it's only March, you ask? Well, one reason is because the weather seems to be changing seasons on us daily (isn't it springtime yet?). But a more exciting reason is the new holiday Block of the Month program at Two Thimbles. This monthly club will start up in April and finish up in November, just in time for the holidays!

The finished product is a 62" x 62", a good sized wall-hanging or throw, perfect for a holiday gift or decoration. The club will meet the first Friday of each month from 1-4 pm for instruction and sewing time. The cost is $24.95 per month and includes the pattern and fabric for that month. Please call or email if you'd like more information- we're looking forward to get this club underway!

On another note, our quilt is on display for the upcoming Tri-County Quilt Tour 2011: "Birds of a Feather". This annual event consists of 14 local shops, each of which designs a block then makes up their own version of the quilt using the blocks of all the participating stores. The result is 14 fabulous quilts, all of which are completely unique. We took a modern approach to ours- you'll have to stop in and see for yourself!

Happy Stitching!
