Happiness Is ... Quilting! Retreat
You know we love to go on quilt retreats at Happines Is ... Quilting! Remember, Laura Kay even went on a quilt cruise Down Under! Well, we're combining all our retreat experience knowledge and hosting our own at Greenbriar Retreat Center this December. Think of it as a way to get all your Christmas projects finished. 

The retreat begins Thursday, Dec. 12, but you have the option of arriving on Friday, Dec. 13. The $200 pays for Friday, Saturday and half-day Sunday (sign up here for Friday-Sunday). To begin your retreat on Thursday, you must also sign up for the additional day here, which is another $100. We have 10 spots remaining.

We're so excited and can hardly wait to retreat with you!

We're Going To Be At Festival!
We're staying for the fun this year at Quilt Festival in Houston! Our booth is going to be busting at the seams with kits and patterns from our amazingly talented friends from Down Under. Stop by booth 748 on October 30 - November 3 to see Sue Daley of Patchwork With Busyfingers, Deirdre Bond-Abel and Leonie Bateman of The Quilted Crow, and your favorite quilt shop staff. See you there.

Cindy Sharp Demos At HIQ
Cindy Sharp, Moda Bakeshop Chef and Long Arm Quilter, will be demonstrating techniques from her online Block of the Month, S'More Rows.  Join Cindy on the Third Saturday of each month at 11:00 a.m. to see her free demonstrations. Many of the techniques she will show you can be applied to other quilt projects.
