Featured Block Of The Month!
 
We love wool and handwork here at Happiness Is ... Quilting! Sue Spargo's wool applique quilt Flowerbed is gorgeous. This 31''x38'' wallhanging is made up of 12 6'' blocks. Each one is appliqued with a combination of cotton and hand-dyed wool and embellished with silk ribbons, embroidery and beads. It is finished with a fun floral embellished border. You will receive two blocks for six months and the borders on month seven. Only $19.99/month for seven months. Get yours today!

The Weather Outside Is Frightful ...
We hope you are making a lot of progress on all your quilting and embroidery projects with the weather we have been having the past week or so. They say "March comes in with a roar" ... and it sure has this year. Luckily, the lakes are filling up with all this precipitation we have been getting. Since the weathermen are forecasting for ice and snow tonight, if McKinney ISD is closed tomorrow, HIQ! will be closed. Please watch the shop's Facebook page for winter weather closures in the morning as well. 


We Have Dallas Quilt Show Tickets
We have advance tickets for the Dallas Quilt Show for $2 less what you'll pay at the door. Don't wait in line down in Dallas, get your tickets before you head down there. Of course, HIQ! will have a booth at the show so, make sure to stop by and say "Hi." Dallas Quilt Show is March 13-15. Doors are open from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 12 - 5 p.m. on Sunday. Don't miss these "Funny Quilts!"

Quilt Heritage Talks Rescheduled
February's Quilt Heritage Talks was cancelled last Friday due to the threat of winter weather. All students signed up for the February session have been moved to the March 27 session

Alley Sale During Arts In Bloom
Reserve your space today for the semi-annual Alley Sale on Saturday, April 11, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. This is a great way to de-stash and clear out those quilt projects you have collected over the years to make room for the latest and greatest projects. HIQ's Alley Sale will be joining in on Historic Downtown McKinney's Arts In Bloom and will be vending in the street again this year. Spaces go fast, so reserve yours today. Register today.
