Featured New Teacher and Shop Hop Hint

We have been working with a new class organizer, Susan Hayward, who has lined up some wonderful new teachers for us. We are looking forward to all the new classes and ideas these wonderful ladies will be bringing to our store and customers. Make sure to keep checking back as we update you on our new QuiltSmart Club and Pincushion Club! We are featuring Carmen Geddes as our Premiere Teacher for November!
Carmen Geddes brings her love of quilting, embroidery, and people together for a fun day of learning. Students enjoy her friendly, low-key approach and her great techniques! She was named Teacher of the Year at HMQS 2013. She has taught at many quilt shows around the country and specializes in quilt retreats. She resides in Eagle Mountain, Utah with her husband Patrick. They have five children and eight wonderful grandkids!

Carmen's first class with Fabric Center will be a Machine Applique class! Enjoy beautiful, instant success in applique that will look hand done! If you have been overwhelmed by an applique project, or have always wanted to try but were not quite sure about the handwork, then this class is for you! In this class you will create an 18" block. You will be so hooked on this technique you will want to make enough for an entire quilt! The class will take place November 2nd from 10 am to 2 pm and costs $25. Needless to say this is a wonderful opportunity! 

Finally, don't forget that next week is the fall Beehive Shop Hop! As detailed before, the theme this year is celebration with each participating store specializing in a different party theme. We have decided to keep our theme secret until the first day of Shop Hop, October 23rd. However, we are so excited about our unique and cleaver party theme that we can't help but divulge a few hints:

  • It is based off one of our most favorite social media tools designed to spread creativity and inspiration.
  • We just started our own profile for you to follow us on this social media outlet here
  • This kind of party is a fairly new invention where you and your friends create things to be enjoyed at the party or to "make and take" home while in the comfort of your host's/hostess's home.  

Did those hints help? If you've guessed it or not, we would love to see you come celebrate inspiration and creativity with us next week from the 23rd to the 26th. We will be carrying our 30th Anniversary sale through into Shop Hop so everything in store remains on sale! We look forward to seeing you.
