Inspiration Day at Quilter’s Emporium!

17 Jul

We had great fun today at the Emporium – Inspiration Day!  There was a wonderful turnout of quilters who are eager to learn something new!  We demonstrated some techniques that were new to some, and products that were new to many.   We had Cinnamon Crumb Cake and cupcakes to top it all off too!

Grabaroo Gloves, Stitching Lines, Electric Quilt 7, Yo-Yo Makers, and Slice were just a few of the many products that were demonstrated.  Max showed how to crochet a rug from leftover fabric scraps using the pattern and hook from Grizzley Gulch and Carol demonstrated the Promise Stitch, for hand piecing and quilting.

New quilters come in all sizes and ages~!  You can see at right, Carol teaching a young lady how to do the Promise Stitch.  Hopefully she will keep it up!

One of our new friends, Emma, brought her Mom in to do some fabric shopping.  Emma found our doll that we use to showcase children’s clothing and they were fast friends!

    Maybe Max can be persuaded to teach a class on the rug?

      That’s a great idea! I’ll be sure to ask him! It’s a great way to use up all of those scrappy strips of fabric and I’ve heard those rugs are really durable and washable. I want to make one myself…..:-)
