There is so much happening this summer / fall, and much of it wasn't firmed up by the July Newsletter... so, Delphine's presents the Mid-July Newsletter...  


Alpenfest will be held this week starting on Tuesday the 11th.  All downtown shops are encouraged to have sales and discounts on Saturday, the 15th... but Delphine's will be offering Christmas fabric at 20% off all week!  Half yard cuts will be the minimum size required to get your discount!  With nearly 150 bolts of various colorways, I'm sure there's something here for everyone.







 
Join the Row by Row Adventure! Free Patterns for everyone plus fabric kits for purchase are available.  This year's theme is "On the Go" and we designed ours with a quilter's focus.




The Amazing Shop Hop Race is over but your chance to getCHARMS is not!  Delphine's has ordered more of all 6 charm designs, and is your place to purchase them; on-line or in the shop.  You can purchase just one, all 6, or anything in between. 
Don't delay, we expect them to go fast.




A message from the Heart of the Pines Quilt Guild of Gaylord, MI

The guild will be holding a "membership drive" meeting at Delphine’s Quilt Shop on August 1st.  We would love to have those interested (or even just curious) stop in and see us.  We will be there from 1:00pm to 6:00pm.  There will be a small project for those who would like to participate, plus a give away.  We will be doing what we like to do best, showing our love of quilting, each in her own distinctive way.  If you have questions please contact Carole Singer at 248-755-8394 or Phyerthedane@aol.com .  Please plan on stopping by on August 1st at Delphine's and see what we are all about.

Looking forward to meeting many new people,
Carole Singer (president)

"IT'S NOT A SQUARE"
by Carol Hopkins
featuring the AMERICAN SWATCH BOOK collection by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Fabrics.

Delphine will be hosting get-togethers for those who would like to make this unique quilt top.  The blocks are 4" by 5" and fun to make.  We will meet for 12 months to make the 72 blocks and then set them together as called for in the pattern or your own variation.

The first get-together will be on Saturday, September the 16th from 10:30 am to Noon.  All get-togethers will be held on the 3rd Saturday for the year.  There is no fee to attend these get-together provided you purchase the Fat Quarter bundle for the program, the book and the pattern supplements (approx. 118.98) from Delphine's.  If you want to attend but want to use your own fabrics the fee will be $60.00 for all 12 get-togethers.

Finished Quilt Size 57" x 78"


Tokens of Thyme
Marcus Fabrics first WOOL COLLECTION BOM

Made with PRECUTS!!

Marcus is thrilled to introduce its first WOOL COLLECTION BOM program, "Tokens of Thyme", designed by Darci and Lacey Schipnewski, the mother-daughter team behind Pastthyme Patterns

The cheery, colorful sampler style appliqué design is suitable for all skill levels and created with a single pack of (20) 10" x 10" WOOL PRECUTS! Marcus wool is a premium quality, rich and luscious, and designed to work beautifully for appliqué.

Seasonal appliqué motifs are worked on a cream wool background that is supported by a base cloth of craft felt, flannel or heavy sew-in interfacing like Timtex. This version is shown in a wooden frame, and the 6" x 6" blocks can also be displayed individually on wire racks, made into a calendar, incorporated into other quilt projects and more! The small block size and hand stitching make them the perfect take-along project. The instructions include diagrams for basic embroidery stitches, so they're beginner friendly, too.

The cost is $85.00 to participate and meetings will be held every third Saturday, starting September 16th from 1:00pm to 2:30pm for those who are new to working with wool or simply want to meet with like minded folks to create a lovely project.  Delphine will be the leader for this program.
