April Newsletter 2020

Welcome, Thanks for sharing your time with me. I hope you enjoy reading our newsletter. Please contact me with any comments and suggestions. I love to hear from you.

What is New and Exciting

I hope this finds you and your family healthy!! In this unprecedented time I hope that I can continue to serve you and supply you with your sewing & quilting needs along with extra amounts of encouragement to keep on sewing. For me personally, quilting calms my soul and refocuses me away from stress and depression. It helps to keep me grounded. I have been sewing a lot lately!!

While the studio remains closed to longarm machine rentals and in person shopping for the time being, it remains open around the clock for purchasing for delivery, barn side pick up (no curbs here!) or to be shipped anywhere in North America. You can order online at , by email or by phone or text 780 700-4456. I keep all kinds of crazy hours so contact me whenever you need. If I don’t answer, please leave me a message and I will get back to you very soon. I turn my ringer off when I sleep so no time is a bad time! I may even surprise you and answer middle of the night! If you have questions about a pattern or technique, please call me, I’d love to try to help and encourage you!!

I’d like you all to meet Iris!

She is a member of our County Quilters Guild in Stony Plain AB. She is an A-MAZ-ING quilter!! I for one can not come close to keeping up with her! She continually inspires me and many of our guild members. This is a picture of Iris and her Liberty Jelly Roll Quilt that she made from one of our Jelly rolls. I did the longarm quilting for her and she is using the 4 extra blocks for pillow covers.

Iris has made and given away many, many quilts to family, friends and charity. Thank you Iris for your constant inspiration to so many of us!!

What I'm Reading:

I love to read. I especially love books about real people, World War 2, and how to live a better life. I will start with one of my all time faves.

1. Night by Elie Wiesel. Everyone should read this book!! It will be a book that I read over and over again.

2. Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois. Best bread baking book. Ever!

3. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. I laughed out loud while I was reading this one!! I have the next two in the series and am highly anticipating reading them as well!! One of the funniest books I have read in a long time!

What I'm Listening to:

1. Dream Big with Bob Goff. Season 2. This seriously might just be my favorite podcast ever!! I love Bob Goff! This podcast is Bob having conversations with his friends about ambition, looking for opportunity and taking the next step towards your dreams.

2. The Next Right Thing podcast by Emily P Freeman

3. Quilt Buzz podcast (brand new podcast!!)

    What I'm Watching:

    1. Hillary on Netflix. I love biographies. I watched this one because it challenged my thinking and preconceived perceptions about Hillary Clinton. It was very well done. I wonder if she will run for president again?!

    2. Escape to the Chateau on PBS. Sunday nights at 8pm are date night at our house to watch this show!

    3. The Kindness Diaries on Netflix. I loved the whole premise of this series!!

    Our customers are absolutely the best part of our business. Thank you so much for your support.
