Sew What's New at HHQ


SEW WHAT'S NEW
March 3, 2017

Woke this morning to the morning doves cooing and sun shining - trees are already budding and we have broken 147 year records for no 'measurable" snow in our neighborhood for the months of January and February - that is uncalled of for the Chicago area!  We have been experiencing thunder storms and tornadoes already, we were blessed to have missed the devastating tornadoes the other night but others in our area were not.  Please keep our neighboring towns that were hit in your thoughts and prayers.  We are quite low on quilts and pillowcases for our "Quilts of Comfort" program and we will need your help to replenish so we can reach out to those in great need.   Sew-in dates are listed below in our "Quilts of Comfort" schedule section.  

Upcoming classes are also listed below - as always if you see a class session you like but the offered time does not fit your schedule give me a call and we can add a session.  If you have suggestions please be sure to let me know. 

If you have not had a chance to stop in the shop to see our one fabric wall remodel please do - I just love it, not to mention how many more bolts we have been able to display!   We have also added an addition unit with Christmas fabrics.  HHQ keeps Christmas all year long in fabrics, patterns, samples and spirit!

QUILTS OF COMFORT - Sew-In Dates
Quilts of Comfort is a charity program Harvest House Quilting stated over 10 years ago when hurricane Katrina hit the gulf states.   Since then we have provided many quilts and pillowcases to our not previously known "family" members.  These folks have been devastated by horrible hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires and we, in an effort to provide a little comfort, warmth and love provide them with quilts and pillowcases stitched b many wonderful volunteers like yourself.  Please consider helping us out with sewing, sorting, cutting and assembling our quilts and pillowcases on one or more of the following dates.   Donations of 10" matching fabric squares and 9" batting squares always welcomed for the quilts, as well as cotton fabrics for pillowcases.
