The Quarterly Club

NEW e-patterns are now available!
3rd quarter: Making a Smart Bag (QuiltSmart)
Cut out “Sam” (this fusible applique whacked out cat) and simply iron him on the fabric before assembling the bag. Add stitching if desired. This Smart Bag sews together so quickly you will just not believe it! Use your own fabric with the second base to create another bag, lickety split!

4th quarter: Felting an Envelope Bag
quarter 3 whacky cat bag Cut out “Sam” (this fusible applique whacked out cat) and simply iron him on the fabric before assembling the bag. Add stitching if desired. This Smart Bag sews together so quickly you will just not believe it! Use your own fabric with the second base to create another bag, lickety split! 4th quarter felted bag quarterly club Felting with wool roving is like painting with fibers. Explore how to use it on the same cotton we use in our quilts. You can felt on many different fabrics. Imagine adding beautiful artwork to your wall hangings or clothing! This is a great way to learn without a huge investment.

HOW IT WORKS:The club is set up so you receive a quarterly kit that consists of everything you need to complete the project. It is free to join, you commit to 4 quarters and at the end of 4 kits you receive a bonus kit free. You receive the kit beginning in whichever quarter you join (e.g. if you join in the “third quarter” you receive that kit as your first kit).
The goal is to introduce members to products that are new or new to them. Most quilt shops do not carry products that need to be demo’d in order for it to sell as it requires too much time. They focus on fabric. But so many people are interested in branching out into “art” quilts that I thought this would be a great way to introduce wonderful products to you.The kits range in price from $30 to $49.50 which includes the cost of shipping. If you live in Canada the fee is slightly higher to accommodate increased shipping costs (usually about $4 more).The projects are all small and designed so they can be finished in a weekend or less. They are fun, pretty, and doable.Kits are exclusive to the Quarterly Club…not available elsewhere. I don’t sell them at shows or in the online store. The kits are only available to quarterly club members and kits from prior quarters are only available to members in good standing. There are a limited number of kits and once they are gone, well, they are gone. You may contact me by email if you want a prior kit to see if there are any available.After completing 4 consecutive quarters receive a 5th kit absolutely free. If you cancel before you finish 4 quarters you don’t get the free kit (obviously.)
