Summer has started with the celebration of Memorial Day. We, at Quilter's Pantry, are enjoying the warm sunshine on most days. And even the rainy days that often bring us a rainbow or two out our back door are a blessing.

Summer brings so many other things to do besides quilting. There are family gatherings, picnics, gardens, mowing, gatherings with friends, traveling, hiking, swimming and other sports. Quilting tends to take the back burner especially in finishing the quilt tops into a complete quilt.

For others it is your time to quilt as you are off work for the summer, or at least a couple of weeks vacation. There are also many quilt related items to make. Such as table covers, and placemats as shown above, wall hangings to go with the season or holidays.

Spring and summer are also the time for quilt shows to attend. The newest machines, tools and fabrics to experience and buy.  We go, we see, we dream, we buy and then we create.

That is just what we did a few years ago when we went to a few shows. We went, we saw, we investigated and we bought...... our longarm.  And that is what started our business.

Unlike many who take the summer of, we stay open and available to help you out. While you are busy doing other things, send us your quilt tops to be quilted!  We can get them done for you in time to give as gifts, anytime of the year. Check out our SPECIALS section for the June pricing special on longarming.

We look forward to a good summer at home and at the shop (which is conveniently in our home).

We wish for all of you a good summer with family and friends and your quilting projects. Hope to hear from you for your quilting needs.

Til next time ---

keep your needles stitching,

your mind creating,

and your soul full of joy.
