Join us this Friday or Saturday for our “Pieced Curves” class.

Hello Quilters,
Where in the world have Cindy and Patti been?
We had a nice time in Hudson, NC at The Quilting as Art Expo.  As I told you, The Jan Karon Museum is there.
We had a nice time outside of Columbia with The Threads of Time Quilter’s Guild.  We did a regular “Show and Tell” program for them.
We went to Mooresville to the Applique Guild and to Lincolnton Quilt Quilter’s guild and did our Antique Textiles lecture and “show and tell”.  We have collected old sewing tools and lots of old stitchery and clothing.  We talk about the history of cotton manufacturing and changes in lady’s fashion through the years.  We take several samples and pass them around so that you can get a good look at things.
Recipes
Everyone enjoyed the recipes at Christmas time.  Most of these recipes come from a 1960’s church cookbook. I have presented just as they are written.  Feel free to update things for today’s tastes.
I’ve been really good this summer eating tomatoes and cucumbers, but I”m craving some fall fall kind of food.  I think my crock pot is coming out pretty soon.
Events in August
August Class is Friday, August 25 OR Saturday, August 26, 2023.  Cindy will be doing a Curves class.  She is going to add some paper piecing techniques too.  You can make a quilt as shown, or add some spiky blocks.  Class fee is $38.00 + templates.  Class fee includes a practice block.

You can learn just basic curved piecing or you can jazz it up with some paper pieced pointy accents     

Class starts at 10 am and finishes about 4 pm.  The classes will be held at Cool Spring  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”.
This is the best (p)art of the class.

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 that 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 Will.

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.
