Rotary Cutting Demonstration
Saturday, March 7, 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Join us as we take all the frustration out of cutting! We will show you how to use just the lines on your ruler to get accurate, precision cuts and how to use those diagonal lines as well. Successful quilting starts with precision cutting - once you have mastered that the rest is easy! This is the same method that was part of our very successful Beginner Quilting Series. The demonstration is free - just come and learn!
State of Maine Quilt Shop Hop
April 1 - April 30, 2015
For more than a decade the independently owned quilt shops of Maine have collaborated by inviting their customers to spend the month of April "hopping" from shop to shop. Customers print out passports and have them stamped at each of the shops they visit. At the end of the month, hoppers send in their completed passports and are entered for a number of wonderful prizes. Prizes are donated by the local shops and some are donated by the companies and manufacturers who make the fabrics, books, patterns and notions that our customers love. Over the past 12 years the Shop Hop has grown from a handful of shops to over 40 participating businesses. Rediscover why you fell in love with quilting in the first place. Each of the participating shops will be displaying a different quilt featuring the "Tidal Lace" collection from Windham fabrics. Take a moment to notice the quilts and vote for your favorite! Hoppers who have their passports stamped at all 42 shops will receive a Free Shop Hop tote bag. All shops will be open 7 days a week with the exception of April 5 (Easter Sunday). Remember, prizes are tiered, so you don't have to visit all 42 shops! Visit www.maineshophop.com for the full list of prizes.

Simple Whatnots Club
by Kim Diehl
This club features six little quilts designed with traditional tried and true blocks and stitched from her Heritage Hollow line of quilting fabric. With an optional "patchwork" only version offered for one design and an added bonus project to sweeten the pot, this project collection is sure to appeal to a wide range of quiltmakers with many skill levels. Participation in the club is easy! Purchase the Heritage Hollow Fat Quarter Bundle, while supplies last and receive the patterns via e-mail only for free.
At Kathie's Quilt Shoppe you will find just about everything you need! However, as you know, it is impossible to carry every book, pattern and notion that is available! With that in mind we would like to offer you a special service! If there is a book, pattern or special notion that you just can't live without, you can now order it! Here's how it works:
Visit http://www.checkerdistributors.com/ and browse through all the goodies they have to offer. You can create your very own "wishlist" of items that you would like. Bring us your wishlist and if we don't have what is on the list, we will add your items to our next order! I am more than happy to add any items to my orders, as long as the item can be ordered in single quantities. Each month get your wishlist to me by the 15th. We will require a non-refundable deposit equal to half of the amount of the items you are ordering. I will then order these items with my next order and call you when they arrive!
This is just part of our ongoing effort to give you the best customer service you deserve!
