Pillowcase Challenge

We are going to be a part of the million pillowcase challenge.  This is a project that is near and dear to my heart. We have decided to donate the pillowcases to the Reno County Foster Care program. There are so many children from birth to 17 years old that are in foster care.  If we can make a difference in just one child's life it will be worth it. We have had many faithful customers make pillowcases and deliver them to the shop.  We have them on display at the shop.

Happenings from Demelias

We have been having a lot of great classs here at Demelia's Quilt Co.  Some days I think we do more laughing than sewing, but at the end of the class we seem to get our projects done.  Oh well laughter is good for the soul!  We have been having a super time at our monthly Girl's Night Out events.  If you have never attended you are missing out on the friendship, food and fun!!  We will be open on Super Bowl Sunday from noon to 5:00 p.m.  Come in and check out what we have to offer.  Hint: If you go to our website and click on our newsletter tab you can get a coupon to use on Super Bowl Sunday.

Karen Darrah from Home Sweet Home Quilting and I will be heading to Houston tomorrow night and we are looking forward to it.  Right now it is 52 degrees here and 85 degrees in Houston.....now that is a no brainer! We are looking forward to seeing all the new items and fabric out there and bring them back to our shop.  We are also staying through Festival and taking LOADS of classes.  Look for great classes to be offered soon. I will also be tweeting from Houston, so you can follow us by going to www.twitter.com/demelias.

Kansas State Fair

The Kansas State Fair has arrived and we are having such a great time visiting with all the follks that stop by the shop either on their way to the fair or on their way home after a long day.  My husband LOVES visiting with everyone and finding out where they are from.  He helps in the shop every Saturday.  I am so lucky! Anyway during the Kansas State Fair we are having a great sale on all pre-cut fat quarters.  You can pick them up for $1.75 each.  We are also offering all of our books and patterns at buy one at regular price and get the second one at 1/2 off!!  Come in and enjoy all that we have to offer.

Classes

I am in the process of trying to decide what classes to have next.  I have had a lot of people inquire about paper piecing, applique and beginning quilting.  I will try and accomodate those that are wanting to learn new techniques.  I enjoy teaching those who really want to learn!

This thing called blogging

I am trying to enter into the blogging world. When I go to quilt market in Houston this year, I am taking a class on websites, blogging and all things computer. I hope that I come back with enough information to actually be able to use my blog.
