Post Card Party Time
From the people who brought you the Row By Row Experience this past summer comes the Post Card Party. But this time, it's NOT a shop hop. Post Card Parties are fun, mini workshops, you can participate in by creating a post card from fabric. We'll send your post card off to have it swapped with other cards from all over the USA and return to you a post card from another quilter in another state! Happiness Is ... Quilting! is hosting two parties in January. Join us on Saturday, Jan. 17, from 2-4 p.m. or Thursday, Jan. 22, from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. to create a post card. It's going to be a fun time, so don't miss out! Register today.
Quilt Heritage Talks with Carolyn Miller
Carolyn will be meeting on the third Friday of the month from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. to discuss and share history of quilting and her beautiful collection of quilts. However, join her on the fourth Friday in January (Jan. 23) to hear about Pennsylvania Dutch quilts. We loved her Amish and Mennonite quilts last month, we can't hardly wait for her Pennsylvania Dutch quilts. Save your seat now.
Additional Creative Stitching and Texturing Workshop Session Opened!
Jill has opened another session for her Creative Stitching and Texturing Workshop after the high demand for the first session. The new session will follow after the first, meeting from 2-5 p.m. beginning Saturday, Jan. 24. This four part class meets once a month and will get your creative juices flowing! Jill has designed a beautiful table runner as a class project or you can bring one of your own. She'll share embroidery stitches as well as techniques for texturing. Register today.
New HIQ Clubs Meeting Soon
The amazing staff teachers at HIQ! have developed new classes, workshops and clubs that will begin in January and February. Here is a quick overview of some of the new clubs that are starting up soon.
