March - April Calendar of Classes

Hi again! This time around I am going to do things a little differently. WHY?
So happy you asked!

It seems that more and more people are using iPads and iPhones and thus are unable to see the PDF file I usually post for our calendar and class descriptions. So, in an effort to make all things possible for all people, I am going to put up pngs (photographs) of each page instead.

As always, you can download or print only the pages you need (like the last page: the Calendar itself), or just bookmark this whole page for handy reference in the future.

We have some great classes there and if you act fast, you can grab a seat at the Saturday class on making the super-cool fusible Lone Star. Give us a call at 985-845-9554 to save your spot.

Louisiana Quilt Trail!

By now most Louisiana residents have heard about the Louisiana Quilt Trail across the North Shore but here is fun news!!! Bright Hopes Quilting has sponsored a new block and three are being dedicated in Slidell tomorrow!

Three new quilt blocks are being added to the Louisiana Northshore Quilt Trail. Featuring the work of quilt artists based in Abita Springs, Mandeville and Ponchatoula, the quilts will be unveiled Monday at 3 p.m. at the Interstate 10 Welcome Center at the Louisiana-Mississippi state line, 41300 Crawford Landing Road, near Slidell.

The quilts are titled, "Gator Country," sponsored by Sew This, 70117 Highway 59, Abita Springs; "Pelican State," sponsored by Bright Hopes Quilting, Suite C-1, 5150 Highway 22, Mandeville; and, "Blooming Louisiana," sponsored by Smith’s Nursery, 19335 Highway 22, Ponchatoula.

Pearl will be there at the dedication and I will post photos when she returns!
