Appleseed Quiltworks Fall 2011

Appleseed Quiltworks
Fall 2011
Greetings Everyone
September is here and we have our Fall set of classes ready to offer you.
Everyone has given a great deal of thought to what the new and interesting trends are. We have a variety of
classes, some short and some longer to give you time to finish that larger project. Whenever possible we have
chosen a new pattern or the best selling patterns. Whatever your mood, there is something for you.
Enjoy looking over the classes offered, enrollment will start right away, and we will have samples of all our classes
on display next week (right after the Bobcaygeon Quilt Show). Please remember that classes are limited, but if you
really want a class and it is only available in the daytime, or vice versa, let us know. If there is enough interest, we
may be able to make it available at another time slot. As interest is shown, we may also be able to add more
classes, so please let us know what it is that you would like to take.
As we grow, so too has our selection of fabric and kits. Come on in and see what is available, and don’t forget, if
you like it, you need to get it when you see it, it may not be available the next time you are in.
Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Cheers from Sandra and everyone at ‘Appleseed Quiltworks”.
