Letter from the Editor
AH...AH...AAHH...CHOO! Don’t you just love spring? Well, yes, despite the allergies, spring is a lovely time of year. The kids are already asking to jump in the
pool and my weeds are out of control!! But let’s leave all that to the hubby and talk about sewing. It is such a fun time at the shop as all the pretty spring
prints arrive and you guys start wanting to sew adorable dresses for Easter and summer. Classes are in full swing and we are preparing for our 2nd Annual
Sew Street Market on April 21st. April also brings our 9th Anniversary! We want to say a very big THANK YOU to all of you who have made us what we are
today. Make sure to join us on the 27th and 28th for the party!
This summer will be no exception in the fun category as we try our best to keep you sewing instead of sweating outside. You will notice the fantastic line-up
we have for you this summer by way of classes. We have some amazing names like Pepper Cory, Mary Jo Hiney and Katie Pasquini Masopust...just to name
a few. Take a class from one of these talented artists, as this will really “up” your sewing and quilting game. Let’s not forget our in-house teachers that
are so excited to bring you some terrific classes and clubs. We have three brand-new clubs for you to try out this summer! Our Accuquilt GO! club, Modern
Misfits and Doll Quilt club are perfect opportunities to meet some new people who share the same sewing interests as you.
I would also like to encourage you to join us on June 2nd for some light-hearted charity work. We will be sewing Sock Monkeys for the children of Safe Nest.
These kids could really use some smiles and we hope to deliver just that. A fun Sock Monkey contest is also in store for those of you who love a challenge.
By the way...nice job everyone on the Bag Challenge. We have 18 gorgeous bags on display in the shop right now. Make sure to stop by and vote during
April! You will have a chance to vote again in August on our Sock Monkey Challenge and make sure you do, as Quiltique will be donating $1 for every vote
that comes in.
Attention all young sewists!! Camp Sew What is back, along with the all-new Camp Sew What Else. This is a great opportunity for your child to learn a life
long skill and have a blast doing it. Spots filled up quickly last year so don’t hesitate in securing your spot this year. It’s a long summer and sewing will keep
your kids from the “I’m bored!” syndrome.
Well, I could go on...and on...and on, but I am sure you would rather just move on through the pages yourself. Have a great spring everyone and ENJOY!
Happy Sewing!
Jennifer and The Quiltique Family
Sock Monkeys for
This Summer!
Since Sock Monkey supplies have been flying off the shelves lately, we
thought we would have a bit of silly Sock Monkey fun this summer, all for
charity. There are several ways to participate and help us raise money and
happiness for innocent victims of domestic violence.
On June 2nd, bring your sewing supplies as we
make monkeys our mission! There will be an
open classroom full of Sock Monkey supplies
for you and all your friends to spend a day of
fun. There will be snacks, staff on hand to help
(in case you are a Sock Monkey novice) and a
nominal fee of $8 to help cover expenses. All monkeys made that day will be
donated to the children of Safe Nest.
In addition, Quiltique will host a Silly Sock Monkey Contest during the month
of July. Purchase your Original Rockford Red Heel socks (brown, pink or blue
available) at the shop and you are entered. Turn your Sock Monkey in by
The Stash l May 2012 - August 2012
July 31st and we will open up the voting to everyone during the month of
August. Get crazy and crafty because the more
unique your monkey the better your chances to
snag those votes!
Then, for EVERY vote that is turned in, Quiltique
will donate $1 to Safe Nest. The winner of the
Silly Sock Monkey Contest will receive a gift
card to Quiltique for $100. All voter ballots will be entered to win a Bernette
46 sewing machine. Please watch your inbox for further details and mark
your calendar for some Sock Monkey fun this summer!
The Safe Nest mission is to be the leading advocate in promoting the eradication of
domestic violence by providing confidential assistance including shelter, food, clothing,
counseling, education and other services to individuals experiencing domestic violence,
while maintaining the highest respect and dignity for our clients. Find out more at

Camp Fee: $249
NEW FOR 2012...Camp Sew What Else is the
next step in your child’s sewing adventure. This camp is also for kids aged 10-16
who have experienced sewing with a machine before. Maybe they were with us
for Camp Sew What last summer (or are coming this summer) or already know
sewing basics and their way around a sewing machine. Camp Sew What Else is for
experienced kids who want something fun and different to do before they return
back to school, and want to advance their sewing skills.
Campers will complete a project each day, including a zipper pouch, a messenger
bag, oven mitt and hot pads, a craft/tool belt and even a Cuddly Bear cushion.
The $249 fee will include all the same things in Camp
Sew What, excluding the sewing machine. The book
One-Yard Wonders will be included and has over 100
projects that your child can enjoy sewing beyond camp
days.
This is a great opportunity for your kids and a way for them to learn a valuable and
lifelong skill, increase their confidence and have a blast during their summer break.
PLEASE NOTE: These weeklong classes are for children 10 and over who want to learn how to sew. We will not be using
rotary cutters, but we will be using pins, needles, scissors, hot irons, and sewing machines. You know your child best.
We ask that students have the maturity to follow instructions and be careful in a potentially dangerous environment. A
waiver of liability must be signed by the parent/guardian of the student.
In order to sign up for Camp Sew What Else, children must have completed Camp Sew What 2011, be signed up for
Camp Sew What 2012, or be familiar with basic sewing terms and techniques. A list of required sewing knowledge is
available at Quiltique.
You do “LIKE” us…right? Well, if not, there has never been a
better time to check out our Facebook page.
Starting in May, we will begin Thrifty Thursdays for our Facebook

generations to come. With ‘Love’, ‘Joy,’‘Peace’, and ‘Hope’ sweetly stitched in

to complete the quilt top as shown, including binding and easy-to-follow
instructions. The start date for this quilt is scheduled for June 1st, 2012 and

before the upcoming holiday season! The cost of this BOTM is $35.00 (plus
tax) per month for 6 months. A matching backing can be purchased for an
additional $87.99 and must be requested at time of sign up to guarantee your
fabric will be available. Shipping is available within the U.S. and will cost

participants also – please inquire with us for more information.
Do you wish there was a class to learn all the great techniques this quilt
features? Wish granted! We are offering a six-course class with Anita, once
a month, starting June 11th to help you along, step by step to complete this
gorgeous quilt by Christmas. The cost of the class is only an additional $5 per

“I’m going to teach you how to learn these designs
so that you can actually quilt them freehand on
your own. I know the tricks and I can’t wait to share
them with you!”
---Christine Maraccini

ago when she decided to put her sewing skills to work making
baby quilts for friends who were starting their families. She has
been in love with this art form ever since and continually looks for
new approaches to the old standards. Christine began a successful
machine-quilting business in 2000 and since then she has received

NEWS
The long, hot days of summer are almost upon us so we have packed our calendar with loads of classes to make good use
of your BERNINA sewing and/or embroidery machine. Each month we will be featuring different classes and products
(some at a discount!) to expand your sewing and embroidery knowledge.
In May we are offering a class on a bright and cheery embroidered quilt that you can complete, from start to finish, on
your own embroidery machine, the BERNINA Bold & Beautiful Quilt! (All brands of machines are welcome.) If you are
new to embroidery, or just looking to create a quick take-home project, make sure to join Lynne in the Rik Rak Zipper Bag
class. This cute accessory bag is made entirely in your embroidery hoop – ENITRELY! We will also repeat the Grandiflora
Rose class for those of you who missed it and will continue with the informative All About ME, Software Sampler and Bernina “Feet”ures offerings. If you are
looking to have some help with your embroidery projects, meet Lynne at the Embroidery Stitch Lounge. She will help you breeze through your projects in no
time!
After much anticipation…The NEW BERNINA Spanish Hemstitch Attachment is now in stock! See how you can create that heirloom sewing look with your
BERNINA and its many decorative stitches in a jiffy. Stop in to see a demonstration!
Many great new embroidery collections are now available in the shop. Two new BERNINA exclusives are sure to inspire you. The first, Sepia Petals, contains
43 monochromatic designs, including 11 designs built for the jumbo hoop. The second collection, Retro Birds, has appliqué birds with tufted tail feathers. This
CD also includes the BERNINA Cutwork files for quick appliqué. BERNINA will be supporting these collections throughout the
summer on their website, in webinars and at All About ME and Software Sampler!
In addition, don’t forget that with our Embroidery Take-Out (ETO) system we can always upload any of the OESD collections
right onto your USB stick here at the store! To see all the great OESD designs, visit their website at
http://www.embroideryonline.com.
With all of the classes, designs and new ideas we hope to keep you stitching happily all summer long! Enjoy!

bears, it’s time to take another look! We are inviting a NEW audience to explore
embroidery and all it has to offer. With designs that speak to the next generation
of embroiderers and crafters alike, these new Every Stitch Counts designs will make

Last year we hosted our first 830
Retreat, a 2-day sewing retreat for

This year we will be creating a decorative sewing machine cover for your 8-Series
machine! This darling sewing machine cover incorporates decorative stitching,
embroidery (if desired), dual feed sewing and a bit of quilting. Each student
will have their choice of any Jelly Roll (or other 2 ½” strip set) and a coordinating
fabric to best match their sewing room. Adorn your project with your choice of
buttons, yo-yo’s or whatever your heart desires.
In addition to this wonderful hands-on project, we will also have games and
prizes, serve breakfast and lunch, and show you some amazing demos and tips
you may not have been aware of. Spaces may fill quickly so sign up soon!
This 2-day Retreat is $140 and includes most fabric and supplies for your sewing

shaped end grabs the fiberfill and gets it really compact to fit in those
tight spots and it won’t break or poke through your seams.” – Jan Tibesar
Why and How to Label
Your Quilts
Q-Tip
A quilt without a label is like a person
without a name. Once that quilt leaves
your hands, it may attract enormous
attention and compliments for its
beauty. But without a label, it can’t
speak about where it came from.
When you finish a quilt and send it out
into the world, a label announces who
made the quilt and often much more.
The quilt will be able to speak for itself
now -- and in the future. Historians are
able to decipher a quilt’s background
if they have just a name and a date.
Even more important, the label will
provide vital information to whoever
owns the quilt after its maker. When the
quiltmaker is long gone, the grown man
or woman who slept with that quilt as
a child will know who the source of this
cherished object was.
Labels also help lost quilts get found.
Theft isn’t the biggest cause of missing
quilts, experts say. Some get lost in the
mail while en route to a loved one or
a show. Some get misplaced: a sleepy
toddler might leave her quilt in a
restaurant or hotel room.
So that’s why every quilt should be
labeled. But what information should
the label provide?
Some labels are quite elaborate, but
that’s a matter of choice and art.
Historians and appraisers say the
minimum on a label should be:
• The quiltmaker’s name. If one
person pieced the quilt and another
did the quilting, both should be
acknowledged.
• Date when the quilt was made,
either the start and finish dates or
just when it was completed.
• Location(s) where the quilt was
made.
• Pattern name or title, whatever the
quilter calls the quilt.
• E-mail address if you have one.
• Additionally, if the quilt was made
for a special occasion like a special
birthday or anniversary you’ll
probably want to mention that on
the label.
If the quilt is a gift, writing washing
instructions on the label is very helpful.
To assure the durability of your label,
it’s best to sew through the layers of the
quilt when you attach it to the back. A
label that is simply appliquéd onto the
backing can be easily removed.
Use an archival quality marker so the
writing won’t wash out. Some quilters
use their computers to print the label
on specially treated cotton that they run
through their home printers.
Be creative with your labels, and make
them part of the overall design theme
of the quilt. If it’s a flower quilt, fussy
cut some flowers and sew them around
the edges of the label. Labels can be
big. Labels can be pieced, with borders.
Some quilters use old handkerchiefs
for their labels, which they buy at flea
markets and garage sales. Or you can
simply cut a rectangle of fabric from
white or off-white fabric, write down
the basic information in marker, and
sew the label securely to your quilt.
Your quilt isn’t finished until the label is
sewn on!
