Calico Station Quilt Shop
I hope you have enjoyed the events and classes Calico Station has hosted for you this year. The new monthly projects, Let's Get Organized and Kimberbell Club, have been a great success and everyone seems excited over their completed projects. Learning new skills is a theme for us this year. Check out our section below titled "Learning Center" or just look under classes.
Camp Calico has been completed and it was a blast, next one will be in August. A bus load of enthusiastic quilters traveled to QuiltCon East and I can hardly wait to see the quilts they were inspired to create. Did you attend the workshops with Gudrun Erla in February? Mark your calendar and sign up on our wait list for her next visit in February 2018. How about Cherry Blossoms in March? We are so tickled to be able to host these international known instructors for you.
In April, Angie Steveson from Lunch Box Quilts will have a trunk show and a one day workshop and you can pick out over 20 designs to create. Claudia Creations will return in May with "Into the Woods". Both of these are popular speakers and we are so fortunate for them to visit us. Space is limited, so sign up on-line, call us at 904-269-6911, or come into the shop to register for workshops. We are working on additional guest instructors for later this year so stay tuned.
Learning new techniques is fun and we have several for you to choose from beginner to advance, we know we have a class to interest you. Check out all the offerings under "Classes". You have been asking for a class on making a Tee-Shirt Quilt, we have one scheduled in April. Embroidery Club has a new technique and project each month. Mini Camp Calico is in May and is filling up quickly. We also enjoy it when you come into the shop to Sit N Sew.
In addition, to events and classes we have new and used Bernina machines for you. Come in and talk to our staff and we can help you find the right fit for you. Check our our monthly BERNINA promotions. Do you need a sewing table? We have beautiful ones made by Koala. Sew Steady makes inserts for your sewing machine which allows you greater sewing area. Fabric! Fabric! Fabric! We carry top of the line quality quilting fabrics. Calico Station has a large selection of rulers, lights, threads, books and patterns for you to create those heirlooms, gifts and home items. If you do not see what you need, we will gladly order it for you.
If you are ready to make a Veterans Quilt - we have the fabric. The fabrics are in our favorite red, white and blue designs. Did you know that Calico Station is a member of the Quilt of Valor Foundation (QOVF)? Once you become a member of QOVF, follow the guidelines at www.QOVF.org to make your quilt, and then bring it to us to be quilted at no charge to you. Calico Station thinks this is a magnificent way we can express our appreciation to our National heroes. What a wonderful way for you to honor our loyal veterans with a special quilt.
