    Mrs. Pete sent me a private message and wanted me to post this for her to tell you about a quilt show in her area

    http://www.the-dispatch.com/article/...CLES/101009836

    The nonprofit organization is presenting “Quilts over Lexington” from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 711 S. Main St., in Lexington. Admission is $3 and parking is free.

    The exhibit will include 30 to 35 quilts made by the members of the group. Although it is not a juried competition, attendees will vote on their favorite quilt for a Viewer’s Choice Award

    There will be vendors of quilting supplies and attendees can win what’s known in quilting circles as a “fat quarter basket,” large pieces of fabric totaling about 40 yards of fabric for quilting.

You can use your favorite blocks and design your own sampler or wall hanging. You choose which pieced borders you want to use. At the end of 6 classes you will have learned piecing, block assembly, pattern drafting, quilt top assembly, machine quilting and binding! Cost : $50.00

    Casserole Dish Cover- Wednesday, Oct, 6 @ 6:30pm
    This "Quick Gift" idea is a must have for anyone who occasionally takes food to meetings, church functions, family gatherings,etc. Keeps food oven hot for over 5 hours! It can also be used to keep food or drinks cold! You will have this handy gift idea completed with time to spare in this 2 hour class! Cost: $15.00

    Woven Holiday Placemats - Wednesday, Oct. 13 @ 6:30pm
    Cut scraps or yardage into various width strips, and with this weaving technique and a few decorative stitches or zigzag, you have unique placemats! Great scrap reduction activity and quick gift idea! Cost : $15.00

    Half Square Scrappy Table Runner - Wed., Oct. 20 @ 6:30pm
    Use fall or Christmas scraps to make a fun Holiday Table Runner or placemats. It's quick and easy and another great way to use up those scraps! Cost:- $15.00

    Quick Skirts - Thurs.,Oct. 7 OR Tues., Oct. 26 @ 6:30pm
    Learn to make beautiful "flaired" skirts like you see in major department stores! This will be a great "quick gift" for any girl or woman on your Christmas list, or just to spruce up your own wardrobe. All you need is 3 or 4 coordinating fabrics and the bottom half of an old, but in good shape, tee shirt! This is truly sooo simple that I just taught my 13 year old niece how to do it and she had never sewn anything before...ever! (Great job Chrissy!) Cost : $15.00

    Fat Quarter Gift Bag - By Request
    This coming the season for needing wrapping paper...or gift bags! Barb will teach you how to make your own gift bags out of a fat quarter...and it is totally reusable, so I guess it could be considered going "green"...(I like to call it being sensible or practical). You can use this technique to make any size you need! Cost: $15.00

    UFO - Fri., Oct. 8 @ 6:30 - til???
    This has certainly become one of the favorite events of the shop! The group has grown like crazy and everyone has a great time. They learn from each other and have made new friends. Bring your own UnFinished Object and a covered dish/finger food, etc. and be prepared for a blast!
    Cost: $5.00

    New Event for September and October ONLY!
    TGIFF (Thank Goodness it's Fabric Friday!) Fri., Sept 24 & Oct 22 6:30pm - til??
    Here is an extra time for gathering of the minds! UFO nights have become a real blast around here and out of it has come some great ideas and great times. So we have decided to extend the fun for 2 extra nights before Christmas to help everyone get their projects done. Bring your projects and a covered dish or finger food and plan to stay til??? Just like UFO night but....for TGIFF there will be a special sale just for the ones who attend! Cost: $5.00

    Sales!!!
    All month ......Buy 4 yards and get the 5th FREE!!!
    All month ......Buy 3 panels and get the 4th FREE!!!
    Marvelous Mondays! Every Monday in October Buy 3 yards and get the 4th FREE!!!

    There will also be a special Sale every week but it's a Secret...you have to come in to find out what it is! A different sale each week!

    During the month of October, we will be open on Tuesdays!

    Reminders:
    If our classes don't fit you schedule, or if you want to learn something that we aren't offering, tell us and we will do the best we can to help you!
    Please register (and pay) for classes at least 3 days prior to the first class. Teachers need to know how many students to prepare for. In the event a class is cancelled or changed, you will be notified and refunded for the cost of the class.
    Don't forget to donate your charity quilts!

    Monday Morning Gals have been making quilts for Victory Junction. These quilts go to terminally ill young people. Specifications: quilts need to be made 60"X80" and fabric should appeal to children.
    Wednesday Morning Gals have been making quilts for Domestic Violence. These quilts go to the Battered Women's Shelter. Specifications: None These quilts can be any size because they are in need of quilts for babies to adults.
    Saturday Morning Quilt in a Box Groups have been making quilts for Davidson County Foster Children. Specifications: None but should appeal to children.
    QuiltingQuest Team has been making quilts for Lexington Fire Department and also Trinity Baptist Academy.

    QuiltingQuest has become much more than a fabric/quilt shop...it is like a giant guild of over 700 people, all with hearts of gold and true giving spirits. If you have a quilt you would like to donate to one of these charities, please bring it to the shop and specify which charity. We will see that it gets there!
    I appreciate each and every one of you. In 2 1/2 years, with help from my team, friends and customers, my dream is becoming a reality! My dream is to have a comfortable, pleasant shop, where people with the same kindred spirit, love to come and stay a while. Thank you so much!

    Oh how I wished I still lived down there in NC. I use to live in Linwood which is not far from Lexington,NC. I sure do miss everyone that I do know there. The Berriers which both of whom were my Dearest friends Nanny Sue and Grady which are now in Heaven.Yes NC has alot to see and enjoy. The Barbeques places , Stamey's for one and Lexington. But now with the Quilting going on there I do wish alot more people would become involved there. Just remember Mary Jo's isn't that far from there either. Good Luck to ya'll in the Quilt Show.
