Mermaid's Mystery Treasure Quilt

Piece your map to the
Mermaid's Mystery Treasure Quilt!

Here's how it works:
Come to the shop once a month, beginning on August 21 from 2-4 p.m. Pick up your first set of directions for $2 & enjoy some treasured treats.
Sheri will show you some fabric choices & help you choose fabric for your own Mermaid Mystery Quilt. (Since we'll be finished early in December, it's a great opportunity to use some holiday prints.) If you'd like help cutting & getting started, she will be there to help. What fun, since no one will know how the pattern will turn out! That's why it's called a Mystery!
Each month on a Sunday afternoon you can come & buy your next set of directions. If you want to bring your machine, you're welcome to get started. Bring your questions to Sheri. She'll be there for support & assistance if you need her. She'll also bring her competed work to share. By December 4, we'll all be able to show off our pieced quilt tops.
Mystery dates:
August 21, September 18, October 9, November 13, December 4

If you want to run in, buy your pattern & go, that's fine. If you want to stay & enjoy the refreshments & get to work, that's okay too. It's going to be a fun time to meet new sewing friends & maybe even learn some new skills.
Tell everyone - the more the merrier!

Each pattern will be available the following week for $3 in the shop.

If you're feeling adventurous, come in & sign up to make your reservation.

I'm looking forward to seeing you there!
