Great fun is happening for April. We’re going to have a real house cleaning to make way for all our spring and summer and Christmas fabric! Oh yes, that’s coming sooner than you think. We have a big new selection of tone on tones and bright floral. Loads of new batiks and loads will be arriving sometime in April. It never ends! But we need to make room. Keep coming in for our great specials. They’ll be happening all month.
Just a note, we’ll be open Good Friday for our usual Friday Fun Day!
We have added a new class for the month. Something we've designed to be simple enough for anyone that has taken our beginner class. If you do the size suggested you’ll have the top complete in one day! How fun is that!
Monday & Tuesday, April 8th and 9th 6:00pm - 9:00pm
We provide the fabric, batting, backing and thread so you are already using the top quality fabric for your placemats. This is a comprehensive class where you’ll learn the proper use of your tools, what works, what doesn’t, strip piecing, cutting and finishing!
You will complete one placemat in class and you will have enough fabric to complete another one at home or here on a non instructional day or “free sew day”. We expect you to know nothing. Don’t think you’re "not good enough”. If you have no knowledge of quilting then this will work well for you. We’re here to get you started on the right road to a very rewarding hobby.
Instruction Fee: $85.00 (includes your fabric etc. to complete two placements)
Bernina Fun Day

This project is great for your “next step”. Anyone with a beginners quilting class will be very capable to do this simple project. You are welcome to add any applique you wish. We have several dies for our accuquilt that you can try. This is a one day project. Fun!.
Instruction fee: $30.00 (includes Pattern)
Every Friday from 10 am to 8 pm is Friday Fun Day.
Let us know you’re coming and we'll make room for you. We have nothing but fun and laughter with a great group of people. We encourage you to come in and sew with us on non instructional days. Of course we’d love to support every fabric store out there but we can’t if we want to continue so we expect you to only use fabric you’ve purchased here for your free sew days, fun days, and classes.
We encourage you to come in and sew with us on non instructional days. Of course you’ll bring or purchase fabric from us for your classes and Friday Fun Days.
About copyright, you must purchase or own the pattern or book for the class being taught. No photocopies will be allowed and each student must have their own purchased pattern or book. No photocopies will be allowed at any of our drop in days or Friday Fun Days.
Please refrain from using any kind of perfume while taking a class or joining a group or coming to sew. There are a couple of people that have severe reactions, like death! Also, we’re tired of listening to your cell phone, your text sounds and your private conversations. It’s not polite. So don’t do it while taking classes, joining a group or coming to sew.
We continue to support those that design patterns. You will need to have your own purchased copy of a pattern that we teach, that you come in to sew on a play day, or group. If it’s a pattern we have designed then we can give you a copy…but you can’t copy and pass it on; it’s illegal. I hope you all understand how important it is. We want designers to keep on designing. If we don’t support them, they will stop creating.
A word about copyright
As you know, some of the classes we offer require you to purchase a book or pattern. Since the information contained in those books and patterns is considered "copyrighted" material, it is illegal to photocopy all or any portion of the information, even just to share with a friend to use during a class. We all want to support the creative efforts of the hard-working Designers who develop our favourite quilt patterns and encourage them to continue to publish and create.
In order to do that, we must properly compensate them for sharing their ideas with us by purchasing their books and patterns. Thank you for your cooperation and consideration!
Here's a little community announcement for anyone in Prince George and area that wish to help this worthwhile venture.
My name is Mandy
and with the help of my friend Liz
, we have started a not for profit organization
that will help those who would not normally be able to afford a prom dress receive one for free. We are calling it Prince George Dress Dreams.
A facebook page
has been started to advertise and inform the community of our endeavor:
to visit our Facebook Page
What Prince George Dress Dreams is looking for, is a few students to be nominated by a teacher, Councilor, or a member of our community not related to the student.
These students should be of a "deserving" nature. A student that may be low income, a teen mom, have overcome adversity, gone through an illness or perhaps experienced the loss of a family member. All nominated must be graduating this year.
This is the first year for this project, but we are hoping it will be received warmly by the community.
We feel that there is a need in our community for this project and we were hoping that your organization could help us out by spreading the word.
Please let me know if you need more info.
