INTERNET SEW IN...........

Who's ready to stitch a little with a group of people?  Just recently I sent out my new news letter.......are you on the list?  (If not, please sign up using the button on the top right hand corner of my blog, so you can get in the fun!) announcing a fun internet sew in this summer! 

If you are interested in being in the sew in is what we will be stitching and the rules of the fun..

The last date to sign up is............June 12
I will need the following from
                                                        mailing address
                                                        telephone number
                                                        email address
I will compile a list of everyone participating and from that list I will send a started
penny rug to first person that signs up.  This list, of everyone participating, will travel with the penny rug so you will know who to mail it to next.  Mark off your name and send it to the next person.  Yes, you are responsible for the mailing.

It's important to remember to keep the rug for 7 days only....after all we want to see the end result before we all forget we even started this.  (grin)

The color palette will be shown by what I used to stitch the first will use your own wool for this project.

After it leaves here, you will stitch on it, then send it to the next person, until it gets to the last person who will in turn finish the rug and send it back to me.

Once completed, everyone's name will be put into a pot and a name will be drawn. The winner will get the completed rug. 

I hope you will play with me this summer!  This event will start don't delay in letting me know if you're in.

Hugs, Lynda

I heard yesterday that my classes at Quilter's Station in Lee's Summit, Missouri have been canceled due to lack of participation. 

I've had people ask me if the projects I was going to teach will be available as patterns and/or kits.  I will let everyone know when they will become patterns.  I'm not sure about the cost of a kit and/or how many I can make with the supplies I have.

Thank you so much and I apologize for letting anyone down.

Hugs, L

Missouri in June!

Next month, June 28, 29, 30th I will be at Quilter's Station in Lee's Summit Missouri teaching for 3 days.  Maggie Bononami will also be there teaching so
I hope you will join us.... I'm sure a good time would be had by all!!!  Rita has the projects posted on her website.... under class schedule so be sure to sign up before it's to late.

You will see Primitive of the Midwest also on that page........check out what's
going to be happening in 2014!!!!! 
While I'm there in June I will be teaching two fun projects.  One of the days will be a make up day so if you sign up and don't get finished you'll have an extra day to
work on it or start the project........My guess is that you'll take home a finished project this year.

I don't know the schedule of what day will be what yet, but here's what I'll be teaching.

Fall Flowers........17 x 32 inches
Pieced fabric background and wool applique

Penny Rug......21 1/2 inches Square -
but it could be made round, rectangular!
Think of your space and we'll make it happen!
All Wool background and Pennies

Just after I return to Florida there is a Quilt Show I will be in vending in.  It's at the Renniger's Antique complex in Mt. Dora, Florida.  More details will follow.

Until next time, Lynda

Good Morning,
Just a quick update to say I'm back from a wonderful week in the mountains - celebrating our anniversary, visiting with our granddaughters and enjoying the view from the top of a mountain!  It doesn't get any better than that!  The hard part is that the time just passes by so quickly!

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day and enjoyed receiving your FREE "My Primitive Garden" pattern.  I hope you will send me pictures of your garden soon!

A huge Thank you to all of you that took advantage of the 25 percent off while I was away.  The discount is over for this time, so stay tuned to future discounts.  Everyone's patterns are in the mail.  Enjoy!
