The center is fully furnished with linens, work tables, ironing stations and a kitchen. (Food is not included in the package).

We are offering 20% off Notions and Patterns plus 10% off Fabric at all 3 shops in addition to Surprise discounts at each individual store.
There is No Fee to attend and there is a FREE Pattern for a Table Runner! Visit each shop for their block and their personal runner layout.
The Circa 1880 Club is designed to bring quilters together in a special way -- You will meet other quilters, trade fabric strips, learn hints and tricks on working with strip sets and small blocks, and participate in fun activities. The program will be supported by a private Facebook group, where Pam will interact directly with quilters, sharing blocks, tips and inspiration. Prizes and coupons will be given away at all meetings!
As an added benefit, Club participants receive six small quilt projects featuring the same Uneven Nine Patch blocks. So, line up your best quilting buddies, and join the Club.
The cost of the Club is only for products as there is no attendance fee at Delphine's for this club. For $85.00 members will receive $100+ worth of fabric, 7 patterns and a template set. 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 to purchase an additional 4 yards of background fabric for the Mini Nine Patch quilt.
This Club will meet the Second Monday of each Month from 10:30 am to 12:30pm, starting in March.
