March is National Quilting Month

Are you celebrating National Quilting Month with a quilt of your own? At our sewing centers in Northwest Indiana we are celebrating with quilting classes and special deals to make this the most fun National Quilting Month of all. Here are just a few of the fun we have planned:

  • Merrillville Store---Beginning Quilting---March 20th 1:00 PM
  • Merrillville Store---Antique Rose Quilt---March 28th 8:00-3:00 PM 
  • Highland Store---Beginning Quilting with Accuquilt---March 20th
For a complete list of classes be sure to visit our website at http://www.indianasews.com.

What are your favorite resources on the web for quilting information and patterns? We found these websites:

  • quilting at about.com---a wonderful resource of some really unique patterns, much of them free. I really like the bug jars---wouldn't that be nice for a lovely quilt for a summertime picnic.
  •  Piece n Quilt---a blog written and maintained by a fellow quilter. Wow---I can only aspire to some of her creations! Simply gorgeous.
  • RK Quilts--- If you're a fan of Robert Kaufman's fabrics and even if your not---there's a sampling of free patterns and other quilting helpers on this site.
  • Scrap Quilts ---Another resource for patterns.
There are even some Smartphone Apps for quilting---Robert Kaufman has one out---it's currently free and comes in both Android and iPhone versions.

And no blog about quilting would be complete without some pictures of our star quilters. If you'd like to be included please post a picture of your quilting project to our Facebook page or email it to us and we'll be happy to post it for you. We're excited about National Quilting Month and hope that you join us in making sewing exciting and fun and passing the skill and excitement on to others. 

  So creative. So fun. Come join us!
