Christmas in July at The Back Door Quilt Shop


It is time to start working on all the Christmas 
projects!  Yes, it may have snuck up on many
of us but it is JULY ~ how did that happen?
And the perfect way to do that is at a 
Christmas in July celebration!


I will be at the famous Back Door Quilt
Shop this Saturday July 12 from 9 to 3.
The Back Door is a destination quilt shop
located at 2503 Fairview Place, Ste. W in
Greenwood Indiana, (317) 882-2120.  The
owners of this shop have been in business
together for 41 years.


I will be there for a Meet the Designer day.
We can celebrate some woolie wonders with
my Christmas ornaments.


If you haven't done embroidery stitches in 
a while ~ no worries.  There will be a hands
on Stitching Demo that will give you all the
information and skills you will need to stitch
up a storm.
Many of my customers make the ornament/
pincushion patterns for friends, all their
co-workers and especially children and 
grandchildren.  Some lovely stitchers make
many ornaments for their loved ones so when
those kids or grandkids are old enough to
have their own homes with their own trees
they will have a collection of lovely hand
made ornaments from their Mom or Grandma.
Start a tradition now!


You can also hear the story behind my book
and see a trunk show of all the quilts from the
book.  I'll also be available to sign books too.

So here's the days schedule:

10:30 - Story of the Wool Work and
Wool Trunk Show

11:30 - Hands on Stitching Demo

12:30 - How I became a designer and
got a book contract

1:30 - Trunk show of quilts from the book

2:30 -Trivia contest with prizes

I'll be in the shop all say so there will be
plenty of time for chatting and stories.

I hope you will stop by!
