So...... Happy New Year, Happy New Projects

2016 is well behind us, now and we've been meeting each month at Annie's Sewing in Covington each FIRST Thursday of the month. This is an open  'sit n sew' for all to come and enjoy.

If you are interested, stop by Thursday, March 2 and see for yourself how open and light-filled this workspace is and meet some of the participants.

If you are READY TO JOIN in, bring your project, a sack lunch and drink and $10.00. We start showing up around 9:45 and stitch til around 2:45 in the afternoon. 

Don't forget to bring a Show n Tell..... we've been seeing some impressive quilts and it's so much fun to see what people have been producing.

GSQA is gearing up for Seminar and there are still seats available for taking classes. Here is the link to learn more about the different classes offered this year.

Seminar is March 15 - 18 at the Hilton New Orleans Airport location in Kenner.

AND.... We're BACK!

Yes, it's true..... Bright Hopes Quilting in Mandeville, LA has officially come to an end, now. It's been a great 13 year odyssey which Pearl began with no plan other to last 5 years and take it from there.

And every year on our anniversary, we celebrated another year in business, good friends & company and so many lovely quilts.

 Sew Many Quilts!!!!!! 

We have loved seeing bolts of fabric transform into stunning quilts and get to know the people who made this magic happen.

We hope we helped quilters learn new techniques, try new fabric combinations; you know, basically venture farther from the comfort zone. Life is learning.

Now, just because the door has closed doesn't mean windows can't be opened and with this in mind, we want to let people in our area know that we who were a part of Bright Hopes Quiling INTEND to stay active in the quilting arena here locally and hope to meet up with you as the months go by. We've got a lot of catching up on quilting to do!

Just so you know, we have some of our terrific samples available for sale on our new Etsy Shop Page, too!

If you would like to stay in touch or show us how your quilt turned out, please go to our Bright Hopes Quilting Facebook page, join or follow us to get occasional updates and meeting details. 

Please, please, please,  Post your photos on our page so we can see what you're up to. Stay in touch, please, by all  and every means.

 We're going to miss YOU most of all.
