Retreat, Retreat and a Road Trip!

This past weekend was the AST Fall Quilter's Retreat! The Stitch Lounge was a hive of activity, chatter and, what else, food! 


We slimmed back the number of spots to give each retreater maximum space in which to work. I think they really appreciated it!


Susan, Jill, Sherrie and Charla demonstrated products from the Squedge ruler to Wonder Clips, because you can never have too many quilting gadgets. Ever.


The projects ranged from small to large, and for gifts or charity. Quilters are the best people.


It's always fun to see what they are working on!


I bet this is going to be something special. 


And so is this! 


We are almost finished with the big Switch Around! New products are coming in to add a little color and pop to the shop, like these beautiful Creative Notions bags that fit your Baby Lock machines!Portability does make for a happy quilter. 


The shop is nice and open, bright and cheery.....


something fun at every turn.....


just to make your visit with us a happy time.


Because we really like you.


We've had great feedback about the new layout


it seems to be a home run!


Phew, boy am I glad about that.


We've had a few of our friends come by with their finished projects lately. This is Crystal with her version of The Quilt Company's Sew Spooky quilt. How stinking cute is that? We don't have the pattern at the shop but it can be found here.

Come on by and show off your talents? We'll share them here on the blog so everyone can see your gorgeous work. It's nice to be appreciated.

Karen, Karen, Sherrie and me, Karin, are off to Quilt Market this week! We'll be packing up Karen's car, laying out the map and stopping at a few shops along the way. It's going to be so much fun. We are so excited and have lots of fun and surprises in store for YOU! Be sure to check your e-mail, our Facebook page and, hopefully, here. I am going to try and blog from market. Fingers crossed!!

See you next week. We'll be the ones with the Kolache factory bags in our hands. ;)
