TLC Quilters -- Workshop at The Sew N Sew, Glendora CA

Saturday's workshop was held at The Sew N Sew in Glendora. This is a fairly new shop; I was out here just a few weeks ago to help Shelly celebrate their one year anniversary!

The next few pictures were taken in the classroom -- the walls are totally covered with quilts!

This is a dramatic way to showcase one of those large focal prints -- I keep buying these fabrics and taking pictures of different ways to use them.....I've even bought some patterns using this type of print in my travels, but have yet to get out the rotary cutter....

Of all the quilts in the classroom, this is my favorite; I think that the cranberry setting and corner triangles totally make this quilt zing!

Here's a closeup of the scrappy sashings separating the focal print blocks...

On the opposite wall are two quilts that are identical except for the fabrics chosen to make them.

This quilt is hung on one of the walls inside the store, right behind a long arm quilting machine.

Lots of fabrics to choose from....

...including polka dots! LOVE THOSE!!

If you look closely right in the middle of this picture, you'll see one of the Batt Scooters attached to a balloon by a piece of string -- whenever the door was opened, the bat would fly around!

The Sew N Sew is a Brother sewing machine dealer and also sells cabinets from Unique Sewing Furniture. At left is their display of machines and cabinets ready to show to customers.

At right is one of the Brother multi-needle embroidery machines. I like that it's located right next to the thread stands -- you would use a lot of thread if you owned that machine!

The Sew N Sew is located at 160 North Glendora Avenue, Glendora CA (phone: 626-852-2223). To go to their website, click here.

I'll be back at The Sew N Sew next weekend, teaching my two day Fluff & Stuff class on Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26, from 10am to 4pm each day. There are still openings in this workshop, so if you are interested in taking an intensive workshop featuring instruction on how to quilt big quilts on your regular home machine, give the shop a call!
