Pi Day

On Monday 3/14 we celebrated Pi Day. 
Since we are not usually open on Mondays we were open from 6-8pm.
Of course to celebrate we had Pie. Chris made this delicious Chocolate Meringue Pie. We also had several other pies.

We also had some great sales going on. 
Clearance fabric was just $3.14 a yard. 
Everything round or had a circle on it was 20% off. 
And we gave out Candy's Cash. 
For every $15 spent the customer got $3.14 in Candy's Cash to be used later this month.

We also had great fun with the Pie Face game.

When a customer spent $100 they could choose one of the employees of Quilt Vine to get a Pie in the Face. 

Lou was the first one to get Pied. Her Granddaughter had been saving up to Pie her Grandmother.

By the end of the evening all of us ended up getting Pied. 
It was great fun.

We love to find a reason to celebrate.

In case you missed it, last year we celebrated "May the 4th Be With You."

Let's Make a Tuffet

As most of you probably know, tuffets are all the rage right now. So, Quilt Vine jumped on the bandwagon. We held a Tuffet Class on Saturday at the Trappe Fire House. And look at all of the fabulous tuffets that were completed.








I got a few close ups of some of the first tuffets completed. 

We had several different legs to choose from.

Each and everyone was so unique and so beautiful!

Everyone couldn't be happier with their tuffet.

Sew Scrappy Sewcial

We have so many scraps that we didn’t know what to do with  them. So, we have decided to let you come play with them. Once a quarter we will be holding a “Sew Scrappy Sewcial.” This is a Saturday where you come and sew with our scraps all day long. Each time we will feature a different scrappy project for you to work on or you can make anything you want. This is at no cost to you. Just come, bring your sewing machine, and use some of our scraps. Please let us know you are coming and we will hold you a seat.

For our first Sew Scrappy Sewcial we featured a paper foundation method. The foundation we used was a half sheet of printer paper cut vertically. 

We had a great turnout. The classroom was full.
And we also had a fantastic lunch. We had homemade tomato soup, homemade Noodle Kugel, salad, guacamole, and chips. I have been promised the recipes for the soup and kugel and I will share them with you. 

Vicki and Lacy got a lot done.

Debbie choosing some scraps. 

Some of our scraps were already cut into strings and separated by color. 

Some chose a certain colorway like the pink here that Cathy is working with.

And others were scrappy like the completed foundations below. 

Our next Sew Scrappy Sewcial we be held in early Summer. 
Stay tuned for more information.
