Happy New Year Friends!!!
It’s been way too long since I’ve chatted with you! My little Etsy shop keeps me busy during the Christmas shopping season. Debbie was kind enough to let me focus all my energy on that and step aside from my duties here at the Moose – thank you Debbie!! It was nice to spend some time at home with the family, but I missed seeing all of you here at the Moose and missed chatting on the blog! I hope that your holidays were filled with food, fun, and family. But now, (let’s be honest) we’re a tiny bit glad that the house is empty and we have some quiet time behind our sewing machines … am I right? lol
I wasn’t able to sew much over the holidays, but what sewing I did was spent on small Christmas gifts and my blue and white quilt for the Blue and White Quilt Show!! And thank goodness I did as Debbie has finalized the dates and information… so without further ado here is all the info!
Location: Minglewood Lodge ( 10603 S. 237th Street, Gretna, NE)
Dates: February 21st and 22nd (Friday and Saturday) – if for reasons of bad weather the show needs to be rescheduled it will be held the following Friday and Saturday ( February 28th and 29th)
Time: 10:00 am – 8:00 pm Friday and 10:00 am – 6:00 pm Saturday
Admissions: We are asking that you make a monetary donation of in the amount of $5-$10 at the door. 100% of the money will be split between two charities in honor of two people important to us here at the Moose. The first is the ALS Foundation for Life and this donation is of course in honor of our dear Suzanne who lost her battle with ALS on December 18, 2019. The other charity will be the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and this donation will be made in honor of Debbie’s 11 year old granddaughter who was recently diagnosed with the disease.
Submission Deadline: Due to the huge success of last year’s Red and White Quilt Show, the interest in this year’s show has increased tremendously. This year we’re having to limit the number of pieces that we accept, so please limit your quilt submissions to 1-2 pieces per person. All quilts should be finished and submitted to us here at the Quilted Moose no later than February 8th. Decorating and hanging the quilts at Minglewood takes quite a bit of time, so please have your submissions in on time.
How to submit: Ensure that your item (Quilt, Wall Hanging, Pillow etc.) has your label on the back as well as this Blue & White Registration form, fully filled out and pinned to the quilt.
Pickup Info: Quilts can be picked up at the Quilted Moose starting on the Tuesday following the show.
We’ve seen many of you come in to select fabrics for and to have your blue and white quilts quilted. We are so excited for this event, from what we’ve seen so far are…you’re quilts are gorgeous! We can’t wait to see the rest! Please don’t hesitate to give us a call during regular business hours if you have any questions that we might not have covered…
Until next week my friends! Smile, sew and be happy!
