Five & Dime/Loose Change Tutorial on Missouri Star Quilt Co
OMG! There are few times in my life when this expression really fits, but this is definitely one of them. I visited Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co. a couple months ago to show her my Loose Change book and Five & Dime Ruler. We shot a video, laughed alot, had lunch and planned a retreat for March of this year. I came home to concentrate on preparations for market. October and November passed and the holidays are upon us. Robert and I decided to close the store the week between Christmas and New Year's for inventory and wished our employees a Happy New Year. The kids and grankids descended upon us to celebrate on the 27-28th of December. After the dust settled on the 29th, Robert pulled out his iPad to check his emails. There were hundreds of orders for books & rulers from the Missiouri Star tutorial that had gone online on the Dec 27, unbeknownst to us. Again, OMG! We had no employees, MSQC needed more rulers and books ASAP, and our ruler supplier was also closed for the holidays. Long story short, orders kept pouring in each day, and Robert had a minor panic attack, but the rulers have arrived and orders are shipping as fast as we can get them to the post office. By the end of this week, Robert and his exhausted but hearty crew (Linda & Jamie) will breath a sigh of relief and raise a glass to all of you quilters. If you've placed an order recently, thank you for your patience and understanding. If you haven't seen the tutorial yet, check it out at Missouri Star Quilt Co.
Great Girlfriend GetawayPam Buda and I are off to St. Augustine, Florida to teach at a week long retreat with 43 lovely ladies next week. Wish you all could come with us for some much needed sun and fun this winter. I'll be teaching my Windmills on the Plains quilt, below, featuring a Jelly Roll from KT Favorites II. Pam's quilt is a beautifully pieced two-color pinwheel from her Pin Money collection. Maybe September would work better foryou for a little retreat to Mackinaw City, MI. Check out the details at both of our websites - ktquilts.com and heartspunquilts.com. Do you have a destination you'd love to visit and spend a week quilting ? Let us know and we'll put it on our bucket list.
