                                         MAY NEWSLETTER

Hope everyone enjoyed their Easter Holiday.  Next up is Mother’s Day, May 12th.  Don’t forget to celebrate that person who raised you through the good, bad, and ugly!
 
Come out every 4th Thursday of the month for a fun night of FAT Quarter Bingo.  We play 4 games, one fat quarter per card and usually have 10 – 16 ladies participating. That’s a lot of fat quarters to add to your stash!  Games start a 6:00 pm sharp!
 
There have been some changes on the previous May and June calendars so be sure to check the new editions. 
 
We have some new and exciting things coming up for May. 
1. Customer Panel Challenge   April 27 – May 30 Purchase a panel from the store (over 120 selections to choose from!) and make something great out of it.  You may choose to make anything you wish using the panel and submit it into our challenge contest.  Entries must be submitted by the due date of May 30th.  Customers will judge them within a two-week time period and we will be offering first, second and third prizes to the winners.  Entries will be labeled with the panel  number verses names so the voting is fair.  Panel winners will be announced at the July first Saturday event.  
 
2. SHORT BOLT SALE!  First Saturday, May 4.  10 am or 1 pm. Come and find the newest trends in the printing of fabric for quilting from our Quilting Treasures representative.  You will be able to purchase short bolts at the event.  The prices and selections are great!
 
3. Panel Art Show.  First Saturday, June 1.  10 am or 1 pm.  We will be having an Art Show of the fabulous panels in the shop.  Kim Nolan will be giving a demonstration on how to square up a panel and the best techniques to turn a simple panel into a work of art.      
 
                                                                                  AND DON”T FORGET..
