Quilter of the Month



Meet Rose Wilson!  Jill has been quilting seriously for seven years. Her favorite quilt design is the lonestar with applique and embroidered sunflowers. She would like to get better at quilting, and loves to quilt at home. She describes her fabric "stash" as 3/4 "strash". Thank you for being our Quilter of the Month!

BIG NEWS - BLUEBIRD IS MOVING!



Bluebird will soon fledge our current home and fly to a nearby nest.  WE ARE MOVING TO 311 14th Avenue South in the historic district of downtown Nampa.  Our new home is a charming Tudor inspired, storybook cottage, and we are excited to begin a new chapter of our quilting adventures.  This will give our quilting family the homey comfort they have grown to love about our shop, with a traditional flair that only a 1937 residence can.  We look forward to sharing this new adventure with you!  Our anticipated moving date is January 2015.

To celebrate, and to give thanks for our quilting  friends who have made this possible, we will be having a series of sales and events over the coming month as we prepare for the migration to our beautiful new nest.  We will be updating inventory, updating our Handi Quilter machine line up, and updating our class offerings and events in our new space.  Stay tuned to periodic email blasts over the next month to be informed of upcoming happenings.  We are very excited about our move to the new space and know you will be too!
