Greetings!,

Good gracious - what a week! It started with a really impressive rain storm, then more rain, then the most incredible cloud filled sunset and now more rain... Do you think that means it will be sunny this weekend? Maybe you could keep your fingers crossed till then? Our plan is to go ahead with the sidewalk fun, rain or shine (we'll hustle everything into the classroom for you if the sky opens up) - hope you can make it!

Not to be missed ~ Quilters Corner Sidewalk Celebration!

Saturday July 30th ~ 10:00am-5:00pm

and Sunday July 31st 12:00pm-4:00pm 


 

We've spent several weeks (every second of every day!) getting ready for our annual sidewalk festivities. This is your chance to find fabulous goodies at incredible prices. Our legendary quilters gift baskets are offered for $8.95 to $24.95, backing length cuts begin at $15.95, rolls of quarters are $16.75 rather than the usual $37.75 price, shop models are offered for sale (great if you need a quick gift), individual one yard cuts appear and new this year - yard bundles (five coordinated one yard cuts for $23.75 rather than the usual $57.75!) - mix in a bunch of other goodies and you can see why there will be a "bit" of a crowd!
There's only a little over a week till the beginning of our 2016 QC Pillowcase Race. From 
August 6th through the 20th, we invite you to make pillowcases for children being treated for life threatening illnesses right here in Pittsburgh. The fun prints and colors you use will make such a difference in the sterile hospital setting. We offer prizes for the individual and team with the most, and even for our staff favorite - rather hard to select from the over 1800 made last year! We're shooting for a new record and we know you could be the one to put us over the top! Stop in the shop to see a demo of our favorite pillowcase making technique and to register for the race.
It seems I say this every time, but honestly - new fabric is stuffed in every corner of the shop!

New Christmas prints are in the back corner and Halloween is in several places already. I think the Cori Dantini Halloween prints are my current favorite (yes, my favorite changes almost every day). Her artwork for Spooky Town is whimsical and sweet - even the spider is kind of cute. The main print is complimented by smaller designs in green, orange, gray and black - frightfully fun. Fabric $11.30 per yard, panels 7.50


Grunge is becoming one of Moda's "all star" collections. The subtle print appears to be the result of soft brush strokes across a solid background. That little bit of pattern can add a great deal of interest to your pieced and appliquéd designs. The good news is, we received all the new Grunge colors. They really expanded our selection and forced us to move them to a new spot. They're a staple truly worth seeking out - look at the end of the Kaffe section when you next visit! Fabric $10.99 per yard, charm squares $9.99


Our friend Renee will be stopping in a couple more times before she heads to West Virginia with school supplies for a the most impoverished district in the country.  If you would like to help with the effort to supply the children with what they need to begin the coming school year, you may leave school supplies (paper, pencils, crayons, backpacks...) on the little school bench at our front door before August 4th.  I've kept an eye on the sale flyers over the last two weeks - turns out this is the perfect time to get great deals on the things she is collecting - the lady in Target must have been wondering why I need 25 boxes of crayons! Maybe you can find something perfect too?
