Festival of Quilts Tickets Still Available

HPTickets2015-2

Yes, we still have tickets for this weekend’s Festival of Quilts!  You will save some time and save some money by purchasing your tickets from us for the Festival of Quilts held at Heritage Park May 23rd and 24th.

As a sponsor of this show, we have single day admission tickets for sale for $18.50, which represents a savings of $7.25 from the walk-up general admission rate.  Not only that, you’ll just walk on by the line-up waiting to buy their tickets there.

For more information on this fabulous quilt exhibition, please click here.

You can purchase your tickets from us by:

  • Coming in, running to the counter, and requesting them.
  • Calling in to the store at 403-253-4419 or toll-free, 1-877-745-6445 with your credit card, and purchasing them over the phone.  We’ll hold your tickets here.  (I’m afraid it is too late to mail these out.)
  • Order them on our webstore here.  Under shipping method, choose “Will Pick Up In Store” (it is too late to mail them out and expect that you will receive them in time).

All sales are final.  So if hubby wants to paint the fence that weekend, suggest he join you at the park!

Another Round of 100 Modern Quilt Blocks Block of the Month

That’s right, it is an encore run of Tula Pink’s 100 Modern Quilt Blocks beginning in September.  Yes, that seems awhile away, but lets face it, you’ll be gardening over the next few months and when you’ve worn out your green thumb, you’ll be ready to take this on, and we will have had time to cut enough kits for everyone who wants to participate.

  • Each month for 10 months you receive TEN individually packaged block kits –  all from one column of the quilt (versus “row” which is horizontal).  Each month’s package has candy-box appeal:  all blocks are different and each month has a span of different bright colours.
  • By the end of the 10 months, you will have 100 different 6″ (6.5″ unfinished) pieced – no applique – blocks which you can sew into any setting you would like.  The book features five different settings, of which not all use the 100 blocks.  However, you can always enlarge the smaller quilt settings to use all of them (which is what Kate did as seen in the quilt above- which, if you click, will take you to this product in our webstore).
  • The “Gridlock” setting featured on the front cover of the book uses all 100 blocks and finishes at 90″ square.  We are following the rainbow colouring of this particular quilt.  However as the fabrics featured in the book are no longer available for our store to purchase, we are using other colour- and style-appropriate fabrics.  Our store can provide you with the huge variety of fabrics needed for this quilt, all matching the colours of the Gridlock quilt.  In the first month alone, there are 32 different fabrics used.
  • Sashing and border fabrics are not included.  These are left up to you to choose, after you have decided on the setting and colours you would like.  Of course, we would be happy to help you select appropriate fabrics when you are ready to do so.
  • The price for this program is $58.98 for the first month and $29.99 for each of the subsequent nine months.  If you already own the book, please let us know when you register, and your first month’s charge will be for the blocks only of $29.99 ($3 per block).
  • By signing up for this program, you are committing to the full 10-month program costs.  Click Here  to find this in our webstore.

Please feel free to call us or email me with any questions you may have.
