News to Use from RQ November 1st
Posted by KJCB on November 01, 2018
November brings to an end our year-long RQ 10th Anniversary Celebration. Can you believe it's already been a year? Thank you to all who participated in our events, classes, sales, and Shipshewana Retreat during this celebration! We are excited to see what the next decade brings to RQ (besides more fabric :))! On to the news...
November BOM Meeting This Saturday
This Saturday, November 3rd will be our Block of the Month Meeting for November with doors opening at 9:00 a.m. This month's challenge is to bring food items to be donated to the local food pantry. The November meeting is a BOM Bucks Blast Sale!! A few notes about BOM Bucks Blast:
1.) You must be enrolled in a current BOM program at RQ OR have paid the sign-up fee for a future BOM at RQ to be allowed in the classroom at 9 a.m. Any past BOM members who still have BOM Bucks to spend may wait in the foyer until the group is dismissed to spend their Bucks.
2.) We will announce qualifying items and guidelines for spending your BOM Bucks at the meeting. BOM Members MUST have their Bucks with them to spend and they can only be spent following the BOM meeting on Saturday, November 3rd (until the next BOM Blast Sale).
3.) There is no show and tell at the BOM Meeting this Saturday. However, you can stil earn BOM Bucks on Saturday morning so feel free to bring those finished RQ BOM quilts that you haven't shown previously as well as challenge items.
We will be starting the Kate in Rosewood BOM in November (quilt featured above). There is still limited space available in this program. Painter's Garden and Graphic Gems BOM Programs will be receiving their final packages this month! We will have remaining yardage available for Painter's Garden as well as Bristle Creek and Pieceful Pines (which will end in December) for those interested in backing.
What's New at RQ
Hey Diddle Diddle by Julie Paschkis for In the Beginning Fabrics is in the house! These bright, fun, folk art prints are always a favorite at RQ. The large panel features two 20" squares with cats and their fiddles. We are already limited in the number of panels remaining so don't delay in ordering! The panel and coordinates are combined together in the Hey Diddle Diddle Kit (featured above).
Ready to go on safari? Go Wild by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics brings the safari home to you. Elephants, lions, cheetahs, and zebras are in squares on the panel (seen above). We have a zebra print, allover animal fur patches print, and a snakeskin print to coordinate with the panel. Great for tote bags and home decor as well as quilty projects.
Harriet's Handwork by Betsy Chutchian for Moda Fabrics arrived this week at RQ. While we're still waiting on the precuts of this collection to arrive, we couldn't wait to let you all know that the yardage is here! Shades of pink, red, cream, and brown in Betsy's reproduction prints create a favored color palette for many quilters.
BERNINA Mastery Classes
We have a Quick Start Mastery Class available on Friday, November 16th. This class is considered the first class for new BERNINA machine owners. Head to the calendar page to sign-up and see the supply list. Additionally, we have scheduled a Play with Your Feet Class (which is the second class) for November 27th.
