Hello Quilters,
We have lots to do in August.  A new class and several guild events are scheduled.

Star Chain is our class in August

Hello Everyone, 
August is going to be busy.  We have several guild events planned, so we hope to see many of you.  We will be in High Point, Salisbury, Shelby and Lake Norman.
We did something this week that we haven’t done in a while…WE ORDERED FABRIC.  If it gets here on time, it will arrive in February.  I wish I had good news, but like so many industries, everything is behind and when it does arrive, everything is costing more.  Shipping costs are adding up. The new fabrics are beautiful.  We can’t wait for you to see them.  New fabrics mixed with some fabrics from your stash always make a great quilt.

Quilting Class this Month

Above is the class sample for our next class.  We have named this one Star Chain. Dates are Friday, August 20 OR Saturday, August 21, 2021. Traditional piecing techniques will be covered.  Make this quilt scrappy or planned. This can be a two color quilt, as shown, or pick out a multicolor border and do the interior in bright, scrappy colors.  The sample is 2 colors but I used 12 different brown prints of the same value. Some had subtle prints with additional colors (red flowers/geometrics). The background is all one fabric but you could use several fabrics of the same value. All the star points are the same fabric. 
We have a Star Chain kit available.  Kit includes all the fabrics for the quilt top, the printed border, as shown, and fabric for binding.  98″ X 98″, $159.00.  As noted below, if you order this week we are offering free shipping.

Class fee is $38.00. Class fee will include a handout.
Class starts at 10 am and finishes about 4 pm.  The classes will be held at Cool Spring Methodist Church, 1902 Mocksville Rd, Cleveland, NC—that is Hwy. 64 about 8 miles East of Statesville, and is easily accessible from either I-77 or I-40. As you know, eating lunch is an important part of the day.  Bring a sandwich or a covered dish and we’ll provide sides, chips, desert and tea.  There is always plenty to share.

To register for the class, call Cindy Page, 704-376-2531 to reserve your space, then mail checks payable to The Quilter’s Gallery to 224 Woodleaf Road, Cleveland, NC 27013. This class is $38.00.  Payment is required at the time of registration to hold your space in the class. A supply list/cutting instructions and directions to the venue will be emailed to you upon registration.

Bring something for “show and tell”. If you need a tractor trailer truck to get all your quilts here, that will be fine. We will start the class “Show and Tell” at 1:30ish.  Everyone is invited to the class “Show and Tell” whether you are taking the class or not.  You might want to squeeze in a little shopping time as well.

We will do some more “Show and Tell” events during our classes and during the All Carolina Shop Hop dates in the fall.  (It will be cool enough to be outside by then.)

Small Shops

I love small shops like Mary Mae’s, in Spencer where we took our barn quilt painting class.  I love that someone has the guts to go out and take a chance and work hard. Do you know of any unique shops in your town?  Where do you love to shop?  Or eat? Let me know.  Cindy and I might take a road trip.  Email me at

Shopping Time

You can always make an appointment to shop in the barn for any time that suits you by calling Cindy at 704-376-2531.  We’re available almost any time. We would love to see you.  Call us if you need directions.  We are located off I-40 between Statesville and Mocksville, NC.

Did you miss our Extravaganza in Statesville that was supposed to be last January?  We did too.  We are planning a smaller version this September.  We are excited to see everyone.  We will be following whatever protocols are recommended at that time.  Please help us keep our vendors safe.  Admission is $5 for everyone. You won’t need to print a coupon to get your discount.  We are giving everyone the discount automatically.    Please have correct change ready.

September 17 and 18, 2021

We are going to have around 29+ of our vendors at the Statesville Civic Center for a couple of days of shopping frenzy.  We look forward to getting back to work.  Please start sharing this info with your quilting friends. Here are some of the shops that will be there –

Raffle Quilts

Let me say a little bit about raffle quilts….We are not having any raffle quilts at the September show.  We are trying to keep things as simple as possible.  You know what’s going on.  You’ve been watching the news.  However, if you want to be considered for a space in January, either in Statesville or Sanford, please let me know. Everyone wants a space.  We are going to get all the requests and then do a drawing.  That is the fairest way to decide which guild gets a spot.

All Carolina’s Shop Hop

One last thing, something new is coming this fall.  During the months of October and November, we will be participating in the ALL CAROLINA’S SHOP HOP.  This will incorporate shops all over NC and SC. Look for the page on Facebook. We will be open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday during October and November.  (Except the weekend of November 14, {we have a family wedding!} and Thanksgiving Day) All the details, like where to get your passports, will be available soon.

Kits for Sale

Curly and Wilbur said to say, “Hello”.
Curly is feeling much better. Both boys got pedicures this week.  Curly got a bath.  If you have never washed a donkey, you have missed some fun.
