NEW BLOCK OF THE MONTH STARTING JANUARY 15, 2023!
RAINBOW SAMPLER


This BOM is a 10-month program from Kaye England for Wilmington Prints. The Sampler is bright & cheerful and is a great start for quilters with the basic knowledge of quilting. The quilt is 93” square and is mostly constructed with half square triangles, nine patches, and a few flying geese.

The program will cost $29 per month, which includes the fabric & instructions for that month’s blocks. Your kit will also include borders and binding.

This is a pickup at the Shop, or we can mail it to you for a small fee each month, anytime after the 15th of each month.

Call the Shop (815-397-5160) now, we have a limited number of kits available.

ANNUAL MYSTERY QUILT RETURNS IN JANUARY!

Inspector “Clue-Sew” will be presenting “Sew It Goes” starting January 2, 2023. The program runs for 6 months. Each month you stop in the shop and pick up your “CLUE.”

The finished quilt will be 57” x 74” without borders. It takes 4 colors. As always, the “CLUES” are no charge, but we do ask that you purchase your fabric for this project at QGS. Of course, you get 15% off your purchase.

WINTER WEATHER POLICY

As we approach the winter weather season, we are thinking about methods of deciding and communicating any closures. If the weather is threatening (warnings, advisories, etc.) it is always best to call the Shop (815-397-5160) first to make sure we are open. And bad weather could also result in an early closure of the Shop.

We want everyone to be safe and not take any risk with travel. We will change our answering machine message to reflect any closures. We will also use Facebook and our website to post any notices on weather related closures. So please call first.
