EPPic Quilters Club
Say hello to our new English Paper Piecing Club, the EPPic Quilters (EPP - get it?). We have lots of ideas for fun little projects as well as quilt sized projects. Our next meeting is Thursday, Feb. 27, 6-8 pm.
We'll be working on the irregular hexagon ring, but you're welcome to bring any EPP project and join us. Cost is $5 for those who already know how, and $14 for those who need a lesson. Just call the shop to sign up, 704-821-7554.
In order to better serve our customers we are trying out some extra hours and one late night a week. This will coincide with Daylight Savings Time, at the end of which we'll review the response and decide if we'll keep those hours through the winter as well. (Please remember we're a small shop and there may an occasional Thursday we can't stay open late.)
New hours starting Monday, March 9, 2020:
Monday - Wednesday 10:00-5:00

The Creative Grids® Rotary Cutting Mats are double-sided! One side features one-inch grids with eighth inch markings over the entire surface. All numbers are printed outside of the grid area, so they are always visible. Popular 1-1/2 inch cuts are highlighted with white stars; 2-1/2 inch cuts with white squares. Eighth, quarter, and third yard cuts are marked with dashed lines for easy reference. The other side is designed to use with the Creative Grids® Stripology series of rulers. Line up the fabric and rulers on the spaced horizontal half inch grid lines.
