Due to events beyond my control the EPP workshop had to be moved, it is now on the books for this coming Thursday, September 20. Pick up a bag of scraps or a charm pack or other pre cut and some laser cut shapes, and you are set for a great relaxing project. We have several examples in the shoppe, from vintage ones to modern, in all states of finish and preservation so you can learn from them all about this fascinating technique. It is most commonly used for Hexagons, but there are many other shapes that work well with this technique. The International Quilt Study Center has a wonderful Mosaic Quilt with 60 degree diamonds as their Quilt of the Month for September. Here is the link to the site, with information about it. While you visit, don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter so you can see the quilt of the month every month.
There are a few things I want to remind you of coming up. Tomorrow is Crazy Quilt Club. It is also Hardscrabble Day here in Red Hook. Particularly if the weather is nice you may want to come around the long way and avoid the traffic in the center of town, — unless you want to partake of the festivities!! Food trucks, music all day, stuff for the kids, even a parade at 4:30. It is a fun time.
The next few weekends are busy, the store will be closed on Sept 21 & 22 so I can go to family weekend and see how my girl is doing at college. She made the Equestrian team and they will have their first event that weekend. I am so excited. You should also mark YOUR calendars for Quilts in the Valley, the Wiltwyck Quilt Guild Show. Saturday and Sunday, the 6 & 7th of October. We will be vending there, and the shoppe will be closed Friday – Sunday that weekend so we can be there.

By the way, the car troubles turned out to be minor and simply more of a bother than an expense. Thank you to all who asked. Be Happy, Be Craetive and I’ll see you soon.
