Business Member Update

Today we bring you the first of our new monthly Business Member Updates.  Our business members support the guild with their dues and perks like free meeting space; we can return the love by supporting our friends at these great local businesses! 

This summer at the Finch is going to be very exciting, with new fabric from our trip to Quilt Market arriving almost every day and lots of great classes and social events to keep you creatively engaged and inspired. Starting in June, we will be doing a block of the month club, using our very own Katie Blakesley's Vintage Quilt Revival. We've stocked some gorgeous Art Gallery solids for this project... I can't get enough of Art Gallery- these vintage revival quilts are going to feel amazing! If you've been interested in learning how to sew with knits, the Moneta Dress class is coming up again, and so is our ever popular Maxi Skirt class. We get our first shipment of Madelinetosh yarn in June as well! July Sip and Sew will be posted next week- it's going to be really fun (as always)! July marks our first anniversary (we're 1!!).  First birthdays are always worth celebrating, and we will be celebrating all month long.  We'll be having an anniversary sale, special music on First Friday, fabric giveaways, lots of great sewing and knitting classes, and a special family night.  Oh, and Cotton and Steel is coming... the whole line...  Yup, it's gonna be fun, folks! As always, we hold open sew hours during our open business hours- please come out and sew or knit with us!

Patches Quilting and Sewing:
We are currently having an Extravaganza Sale (but only for a short time)!  Between May 30th and June 7th, all regularly priced fabric will be 25% off with a minimum ½ yard cut.   Also, at the time of your purchase you will receive “Patches Cash”.  For every $50.00 you spend, you will receive a Cash Coupon for $5.00 off a future purchase effective June 9-30 only.  Also, there are still seats available for the Husqvarna Viking Ruby Deluxe event on either June 6 or June 7th.  This class is from 10:00-3:00 either day and when you arrive for the Event you will receive your free kit for an embroidered table topper.  Great deals on all machines will be in effect during our Sale.   Some of the extras will be gifts with purchase, extended financing terms, rebates and/or the lowest prices of the year! For a preview of the machine  -  Carolyn and Jackie have just returned from Quilt Market in Pittsburgh.  We have placed our orders for fabric, wool, patterns and notions.  Carolyn spoke with many of the thread and wool vendors to ensure that we have the best items available for your quilting projects.  We are going to have a new "Stitching Society" starting up soon.  This wool club will be new, exciting and different for those who love hand embroidery and wool applique.  At Market, we saw contemporary fabrics, bright colors and hexagons are still in vogue.  Get ready for great quilting fun this summer as the Row by Row Experience comes to Maryland!  You’ll be able to go from shop to shop, state to state, as you travel between July 1st and September 2nd.  Collect patterns for a great row-by-row quilt with the theme “Sew A Season”.  The first quilter who brings in a completed quilt using at least 8 different rows into a participating quilt shop by October 31, 2014 will win 25 fat quarters.

Thanks to these two shops for being the first to join the DCMQG as business members!
