Say goodbye to 2015 with 25% off everything!


 

Dec. 29, 2015  
     It's been quite the year here at Intown Quilters, filled with fabric, fun and fab friends. Thank you for being a part of the IQ family in 2015!

     IQ is open today (12/29) until 8 p.m. and again tomorrow (12/30) from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., which gives you plenty of time to stop by and pick up whatever Santa forgot to leave under the tree at 25% off! We'll also apply that discount to prepaid special order notions!

    Intown Quilters is closed Thursday and Friday (New Year's Eve and New Year's Day) so the IQ crew can celebrate the holiday with their loved ones. Of course IntownQuilters.com is still open; orders won't be shipped, however, until after the holiday.

       Happy New Year!
        Sarah & The IQ Crew

Glorious Hexagons
 

             Next year's handwork BOM will be one of our favorite quilts from Fall Quilt Market: Glorious Hexagons! Liza Prior Lucy and Kim McLean used Katja Marek's The New Hexagon (the basis of our 2015 Hexy BOM), along with some blocks of their own design with the stunning fabrics from the Kaffe Fassett Collective.

     Our Glorious Hexagons Club kicks off the first Saturday in February 2016. Join Mary Lou Mojonnier at Intown Quilters for a 12-month stitch along to create your version of these quilts using The New Hexagon and a booklet from Liza and Kim. Your Glorious Hexagons Club membership includes the supplemental booklet by Liza and Kim, monthly meeting time with Mary Lou and a 3" acrylic hexagon template, as well as EPP papers each month, cut specifically for these stunning quilts from Paper Pieces.

     We've set up a monthly subscription through PayPal (PayPal account required); just click here to sign up. IQ's Glorious Hexagon's Club is $25.50 for the first month and $18.50/month for the remaining 11 months. If you prefer to not use the paypal monthly subscription system, you can pay for the full year all at once in the shop or on the phone.
 
     Head to the Glorious Hexagons listing on our website for all the details (including shipping options for out-of-towners) and to sign up!

2015 Clubs
 

Paper Piecing Club
       Come join our paper piecing teacher Wanda Earley as she leads a monthly paper piece sit-and-sew club. We will get together and work on foundation paper pieced projects. This is the time where you can bring in any project that you are working on or want to begin working on and we can help/encourage/get inspired by each other. This group will meet from 4:30-7:30 p.m. on the 1st Tuesday of the month. The club is $10/month.

By Hand-the Art of Slow Quilting
      
Sometimes it is good to take a break from doing everything fast. Handwork is a great way to slow down and enjoy the process of creating. When you do handwork, you can often take it with you to take advantage of times when you are just waiting for something else, you can actually talk to friends and family while working on your projects, and it is relaxing. We will get together and work on quilting projects by hand - hand piecing, English paper piecing, hand appliqué, hand quilting. This is the time where you can bring in any project that you are working on or want to begin working on and we can help/encourage/get inspired by each other. This group will meet on the 3rd Saturday from 9:30am-1pm. $5 per month.

Shirley's IQ Club
         Year Two of Shirley's IQ Club is in full swing and the fun projects and patterns just keep rolling in. Shirley's had a blast planning for the coming year and the sneak peeks she's given us make it clear why this club is so popular. You can sign up a month at a time for $10.

Classes

 
Classes are listed below and on the website.
Don't put off signing up for a class you are interested in because some fill up quickly and you don't want to miss out because you forgot to sign up right away.
 
*You should receive a class supply list about 2 weeks prior to the class by email unless you have stopped by the shop to get one in person. 
*Class cancellation policy
You can cancel a class up to two weeks prior to class for a full refund. We will only cancel a class if we have to. If you miss a class we can try to get you in the next class with a fee (fee is determined by the length of the class) to cover the lost spot in that class.

Log Cabin
1/23 1:30-5:30 p.m. $50
The log cabin is one of the most loved and most versatile of the traditional quilt blocks. Learn how color placement affects your block and how block placement impacts your design. You will end up beginning the blocks for a lap size quilt that will be quick and easy to finish up on your own. Taught by Maxine Moore.

Quilting Studio
1/31 1-5 p.m. $45
Do you have a quilt you'd like to get started on but feel just a little intimidated about jumping in? What about one you'd like to get finished but can't figure out exactly what the pattern is telling you, or can't find the time to make yourself get it done? Quilting Studio might be the class you need! Four uninterrupted hours of help from an accomplished and knowledgeable teacher. Bring your pattern/project and let Patty Murphy  help you get started, motivated or finished. Students in this class should have some experience piecing a quilt and a familiarity with the skills involved, including but not limited to using a rotary cutter and ruler, reading a pattern, etc.

Lizzy House Meadow Workshop
3/20 10:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. $200
Lizzy House was inspired to create the Meadow Quilt and decided against releasing it as a pattern; instead, she's teaching it only as a class. Each workshop focuses on creating the Meadow block, which students then can use to make a full Meadow Quilt on their own. Classes include lunch and are each limited to 14 participants. As always, we are offering workshop participants a discount on the supplies used in these classes! We will email you a supply list once we receive one from Lizzy but do not expect the list until after the first of the year.

Because of the commitments related to scheduling a teacher of this caliber, we have made a change to our usual class cancellation policy: Any cancellations for the Lizzy House workshops must be done by the end of the day on Jan. 21, 2016, in order to receive a full refund. After Jan. 21, we will only issue a store credit (less a $5 cancellation fee). Please take a moment to check your calendar to ensure you will be able to attend the workshop for which you are registered.
Coupons  
We have our IQ loyalty program, which is good for 20% off all regularly priced merchandise. Since launching our new computerized point-of-sale system, we are changing from paper cards to an electronic rewards system. No more forgetting your cards at home! We are happy to add your existing IQ cards to our system; just bring them in with your name and email address written on them.

We do occasionally give out coupons during shop hop and other special events like quilt shows. Coupons cannot be used on special orders or sale items, cannot be combined and there are no rain checks.
 
Help Dalton Davis  
Many of you probably remember Dalton Davis, who used to work at the shop before he went off to college. Dalton was a foster kid in Atlanta and now is on his own trying to make his way through college. He needs our help now. He has never gotten enough money from the state and scholarships to cover his living expenses, books and supplies for school so I have been helping him the past four years, along with some regular help from a few of our very dedicated (and generous) customers, who Dalton and I thank very much! I am reaching out to you again because this talented young man really could use some financial help continuing his education. If you are willing, click on this paypal button to make a donation or mail or drop by cash or a check made out to Dalton Davis. Anything will help.
