What classes would you like to see offered by a quilt shop in the future? Fabric dyeing? Embellishments? SweatShirt Jackets? Traditional blocks? Basic borders and binding?
What degrees of difficulty do you hope we would offer? Mostly beginner? Mostly advanced?
The next newsletter is going to start taking shape and I thought I would try to get some feedback ahead of time. Thanks in advance!

Shannon and Abby each made a 16" pieced AND quilted AND binded mini-quilt (table rugs as one husband calls them), embroidered tea-towels and tissue box cover, beginning paper-piecing block and Wonky Town Houses, a market tote and a cell-phone shoulder-bag. They are covered in wares!
It's the participants that make the classes fun for us and I thank you both and all the students in the past for taking them with us.
It's a bright, chock-filled store and if we don't have it in stock, we'll try to order it for you. Come on by!

We had a WONDERFUL time with you on Friday and Saturday and thank you all for your participation and support. If I can figure out how to do it, I will post some video I took on Saturday.

You're gonna thank me...... look at this!
Again, from Leslie (it's Leslie month at Bright Hopes). This is the center and then some of our 2010 Medallion Block of the Month. Leslie has done a FABULOUS job of selecting the array of batiks in this quilt.
When complete, the quilt will measure 84" square and will use a variety of piecing techniques. So if you would like to spread your wings under the guidance of Leslie, sign up quick. The space for joining this BOM will be rather limited due to availability of the fabrics.

Well, I'm falling a little behind, but trying hard to catch up. Here is the June Block all finished, and then it has been added to the rest of the quilt. That means I'm half way finished. Come by the shop for Shop Hop to see the real quilt up close. Hope everyone's working hard on their Blocks also. I can't wait to see this one finished!
