Anderson Fabrics and Quilt Shop July-August Newsletter








 

Happy Summer! 

June was certainly a busy and hot summer month!  We would like to thank all that attended the Minnesota Quilt Show in St Cloud with us!  We had a great group of gals on the bus.  Next year it is in Duluth.  There are so many beautiful quilts to see, a person should walk through twice to not miss anything!  If you missed it, check out our facebook page. I shared photos of quilts from the judged section that were amazing to me!   

New Faces:

We have some new faces in the store:  Lisa started working with us in June.  She moved to Mn from Chicago about two years ago.  She has education in fashion design and is a great addition to our store.  She has great knowledge of fabric and loves to work with fabric in many new ways.  See below for a class she plans to teach in July.

Aunika is a high school student from Blackduck.  Her mom works in HR in the workroom and plans to be summer help and some time during the school year.  She is involved in volleyball and basketball and is just a sweet girl to have in the store.  

Quilt Minnesota

We are working on samples with the Quilt MN Fabrics. We have a couple table runners, and our 8” block pattern ready. 

When you shop the Hop you get a 5” square and our block pattern as a gift.   

We will have a special item as an “itty bitty” sale.   And we will open at 9 am during the Shop Hop.   

Our region Prize is 10 fat quarters of  Moda’s Celestial Zen Chic line.  

Several people have pre-ordered fabrics, they are cut and ready to ship/pickup at the start of the Hop.  July 28th. https://www.andersonfabricsquiltshop.com/shop/2023-Quilt-Minnesota-Fabrics.htm

From our Shoppers:  

Hello!

I bought some blue fabric from Anderson fabrics back in March that I used for a prom dress. You gave me your card so I could email you a picture when I was done for your newsletter. I unfortunately lost your business card until just today so I figured better late than never. 

This is the finished product! I worked super hard on it to get it done within a month of starting. The fabric was perfect and I loved it so much!

Thank you for the great fabric!

Athena Olson

 

  When we ask you to send pictures we actually mean it!  One shopper bought this pattern and strips of batiks to make matching, but different quilts for her twin grand-daughters.   Didn’t they turn out beautiful. She used a pastel tie-dye cuddle on the back.      

 

Classes: we are open to any ideas for classes you are interested in. We are planning for some new classes this summer and fall:

 

Come Join us at Anderson fabrics and quilt shop for their first ice dying class. We will be learning to dye with fiber reactive procion dyes, which is for natural fibers like cotton and linen. Procion dyes are safe for baby clothes, sheets, pillow cases, shirts, pants, quilts, the possibilities are endless,  Let your creative imagination take you away. Plus, since we live in a place where we get a lot of that beautiful white snow, you can snow dye without any cost of buying or making ice. 

 

 

What you will need for the class

 

  1. Anything on legs coated in plastic like, an old cookie or cake stand for cooling, a stackable shelf.  You will be able to find these things at Walmart or the Dollar Tree. Do not use anything you plan to use in the kitchen again!            A rubbermaid container to keep your fabric in so that it can be wet for 24 hrs.  

 

  1. If you would like to dye your own t’shirt, it must be a white 100% cotton for this dye to work.  Drop your t’shirt off at Anderson Quilt Shop no later than August 3, 2023, and we will prepare garment for you. Otherwise fabric with be supplied to you.
