Hello Quilters,
Where in the world are Cindy and Patti?  Right now, we are in Myrtle Beach, SC getting ready for the Myrtle Beach Quilt Party.  Mardell Smith has been putting on this fun and educational event for over 30 years.  Everyone will arrive today and then we will have 3 days of classes, sewing and fun.  It might be the beach, but just like everywhere else, IT’S COLD HERE.  However, the view of the beach is lovely and makes you feel warmer than you are.
Next Monday, we will hit the ground running and make final preparations for the Quilting and Needle Art Extravaganza in Statesville.  We gave this show a big name because it’s a BIG SHOW. We are very excited about our vendor line up this year.  Many of your favorite shops are returning and we have several new shops making their first appearance.  Give these new gals some attention.  They have big quilting dreams and we want to see them come true.
Show highlights
Arrive early.  The first 100 people in the door get 2 chances to win all day.
Hourly door prizes.
3pm on Friday – Sewing machine drawing.
On Friday, Sew Original from Winston Salem and Studio Stitch from Greensboro will be giving away a fabulous Bernina sewing machine.  It will be a 325 Bernina.  It has a MSRP of $1499.00.  Cindy and I have sewn on Berninas for a long time.  We think they are just the best.  Plan to spend some time looking at machines.  You must be present to win the machine.
At 3pm on Saturday, we will give away another fabulous prize.  Details TBA.

If you don’t like crowds, come in the afternoon.  Saturday is less crowded than Friday and afternoons are less crowded than mornings. There will be food on site from 220 Cafe so plan to spend the day.

Farm News

Many of you know that Cindy and I live in the country.  We are the 5th generation to live on this farm  Just recently, due to heath issues, our cousins who ran the farm decided to retire.  We are pleased to announce that Running T Beef will be expanding onto our farm.

\
This is Josh, Brandi, Wes and Wil.

Running T is the new way to farm.  They raise grass fed beef.  We are excited about the improvements that they will make to our farm.  This is farming the way it is supposed to be done.
They are currently taking orders for their Fall beef deliveries.  Take a look at their website if you are thinking about beef for this fall/winter.  They are taking orders now for beef to be ready by fall.  It’s a little different from just running to the grocery store when you need something, but it’s worth the extra effort and planning.

Chemical free pastures
No antibiotics or added hormones
NC local
Pasture raised
Live-growing, Biodiverse Forage Pasture Finishing

Josh and Brandi can explain this better than I can, so sign up for their newsletter and check out their website.  https://www.runningtbeef.com  If you care about where you food comes from, I think this will interest you.  They ship meat all over the US.  We’ll be telling you more as things get started.

Donkey News

After a big Christmas and New Year’s Eve, the donkeys have settled back into normal days of hay, feed and wintery chill.  They are in good hands while I’m gone.  Uncle Doug is on call.  Wilbur is pouting in the background.  He has new shoes that he wants me to tell you about, but that will be another story.

Call Cindy – 704-376-2531 if you would like to order anything.
As most of you know, we are not a brick and mortar shop.  We are just a studio.

We are available by appointment.  Call us if you need directions.  We are located off I-40 between
Statesville and Mocksville, NC.
Our address is 186 Page Farm Road, Cleveland, NC  27013.
