Welcome to Mt. Pleasant Quilting Company!
We are your one stop destination quilting shop with over 5,000 bolts of 100% cotton quilting fabrics, including flannels and batiks, from most of the major fabric companies. We offer classes -almost daily-with a great variety to choose from - beginner to advanced. If you’re looking for kits, you’ve come to the right place. If you need help in picking out fabrics that coordinate well together, our staff is here to help you with individualized attention. We provide superior longarm quilting machine services: custom, heirloom and edge to edge quilting (pantographs), plus basting and binding services. We also make custom quilts for those who wish to order a quilt completely finished. We are a Judy Niemeyer Certified Shop. Barbara Miller, owner is also a Judy Niemeyer Certified Instructor. Take a drive - it’s worth it!
Barb’s Bulletin - May 2015
Happy Spring and pre-summer to you! If there was anything to be in agreement about this past winter- it was that it was a long one! We certainly are looking forward now to the wonderful rebirth of flowers and foliage.
I wrote in my past newsletter about my new years resolution of making a quilt using leaders and enders. Did any of you take up the challenge? I’m still sewing away with leaders and enders. My pile isn’t as big as I want at this point as sometimes I’ve forgotten to do it-must be senior moments! So, if you haven’t taken up the challenge yet, cut 2” squares from your scraps, sew two together, and then continue with whatever project you are sewing on, and end with two 2” squares sewed together. They will become the new leader for you. Doesn’t make any sense to you? Stop in and I will show you. In the end they will be put together in 16 patches sashed with black.
We are still doing School House, but in a revised format. Here’s the info on it:
SCHOOL HOUSE-OPEN HOUSE-EXTRAVAGANZA!
Saturday, June 20th - 10:00 - 3:00
NEW FORMAT * NO REGISTRATION FEE * COME WHEN YOU WANT
I have decided to change the format for School House this year. We will still have a tent out front where you can see the demos - there will be some in the shop too! The day is structured as an Open House. The demos will be going on constantly from 10:00 - 3:00, so you can plan your day accordingly. I can’t tell you what the demos will be, as I haven’t been to Quilt Market yet. I will bring back the latest and greatest notions, patterns, gadgets - whatever it is that I find! You, the attendees will be the first to see all of the “goodies” that we haul back here. Every attendee will receive a door prize. As you know from past years, you receive a sale price on all the “goodies” too. We also will have special sales in the shop! An event you won’t want to miss!
The shop will be closed Saturday, July 4th and Saturday, September 5th. Enjoy the summer…. and as I always write: in my newsletter because it’s so true: you are all fun, friendly, and fantastic women! (And men-you are too!) I sincerely thank you for attending classes and shopping at Mt. Pleasant Quilting.
