Shop Hop Starts Today!

21 Mar

Happy Shop Hop Folks! Well, it seems that the whole of Houston stops when we participate in the Greater Houston Shop Hop! Well, it doesn’t really, but isn’t it nice to think that quilters are THAT important???

We had lots of rain yesterday and I was worried about what today would bring. Mother Nature, God bless her, has seen to it that the rain stopped and that the temperatures are so comfortable and cool! Yea! I’ve taken some photos of the shop at the first of the day so that you can see what we have to share with you!

Check out the fabulous quilt from the Coastal Prairie Quilt Guild at our Shop Hop Check in Desk

First of all, when you sign in to get your passport, you have got to notice the gorgous raffle quilt displayed by the Coastal Prairie Quilt Guild! It’s received so many oohs and aaahs already!

Greater Houston Shop Hop starts this Wednesday!

18 Mar

I am so jazzed up!  We’ve had another great weekend at Quilters Emporium!  Last night was our UFO Pajama Party at the shop and I heard that Lori and Bonnie had a terrific time with all of the ladies in our newly decorated huge classroom!  How terrific!

Today the shop hosts a visiting Round Robin group from the Greater Houston Quilt Guild (Welcome Ladies!!!) and we finishing preparing for the shop hop that starts on Wednesday the 21st!  Visit the website for details.
You receive your free passport at the first shop you visit.  We have stunning batik quilt that has received rave reviews so far!  Better visit all of the shops so that you get all of the blocks and setting for the quilt!  The only quilt section that is NOT included in the shop’s kits is the final border, which you can purchase at any of the shops.

Hope to see you on the hop!  Lots of fun, shopping, food, freebies AND you can win one of over 180 prizes!!  Woo-hoo!!!!!

What a Fun Cruise!

18 Mar

Last month’s cruise to Key West and the Bahamas on Carnival’s Magic was such fun!  Our teachers, Susan and Christine (the Swirly Girls), Lisa Bongean (Primitive Gatherings), and Shelli Ricci were absolutely stupendous and the reviews have been wonderful!

I think they had a terrific time too!  You should check out their blogs!..  Susan and Christine have a terrific entry about the cruise.  It’s a riot! 

Lisa and Nick  had a terrific time too! 

We were so pleased and  we look forward to the 2013 cruise!  On February 17, 2013, we will leave on Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas with teachers, Heidi Pridemore (Whimsical Workshop), Bonnie Sullivan (All through the Night), Tom Russell (Katy Texas Quilt Artist), and Shelli Ricci, (Thread Artist).  It will be a fun time so sign up soon!  Details are on our shop website at
