| Introducing "The Circa 1880 Club"
Second Saturday of the Month from 10:30am to 12:00pm - Starting in March
The cost of the club is only for products as there is no attendance fee. For $85.00 members will receive $100.00 worth of fabric, patterns and templates - 26 pieces of the Circa 1880 fabric collection, the pattern and template for the Nine Patch quilt, plus patterns for 6 additional small quilts. Fabric kits for the 6 small quilts will be $75.99 or club members can use their own fabrics to make the small quilts. Club members will need an additional 4 yards of background fabric for the Nine Patch Quilt.
The Circa 1880 Nine Patch quilt is a jaw-dropping beauty of fabric scrappiness. The quilt is a replica of a circa 1880 antique quilt Pam Burda fell madly in love with, so much that she developed The Circa 1800 Club, allowing other quilters to recreate the antique quilt, too. Pam dedicated one hour each morning to making the blocks for the quilt which she now calls her "Hour-A-Day Heirloom!"

Recipe of the Month
Special Sugar Cookies - Delphine's favorite
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup softened butter
3 Tbsp whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract
3 cups all purpose flour - sneak in some whole wheat pastry if you like
1 1/2 tsp. salt
Combine the sugar, butter, egg, cream and extracts together. Beat at medium speed until mixture is light and fluffy. Add the flour, powder and salt. Beat at low speed just until a soft dough forms. Cover and chill the dough for 1 to 2 hours, or until firm. In the meantime heat the oven to 350degrees. Roll the dough on a floured surface (a mixture of flour and confectionery sugar works really good) to 1/4" thickness. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets and bake for 4 - 6 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool and decorate as desired.
