We finally got the class schedule all completed. It's been typed, proofed, retyped, proofed again, so it will head to the printer tomorrow just in time for our Class Registration Open House with Meet & Greet the Teacher this Saturday October 19th from 1pm - 3:30pm
I've updated the website with all the class information; I still have a few pictures to take & add them. All the information is there on the site so make sure to check out the class section to get an idea of what the teachers have planned for you.
Make sure you get into the shop to register as these classes are going to fill up fast.
We have several new teachers that have joined us this summer, a couple new one's this fall & we will be welcoming back several of our teachers that are lucky enough to escape the summer heat here in the Valley.
The new names you will see are: Marti French, Sona Johnson, and Regina Hedgecock. We will welcoming back: Denise Gebing and  Mardi Norwood.
We welcomed two new staff members this summer; Terri Overton and Fran Dill. Fran will also be teaching some classes for us. We sadly sent off to Vermont Sharon Wilmans, her husband obtained a new position which took them off to Vermont. We hear from Sharon about the lovely fall colors she has been seeing and the museums she has been visiting.

In November we are hosting another National Teacher through Arizona Quilter's Guild; Karla Alexander will be teaching in the shop on Sunday November 10th, Make sure you check the Arizona Quilter's Guilds website to get all the details of the classes Karla will be teaching and to register for those classes. It's very exciting to be working with AQG and having the pleasure of meeting these talented quilting instructors.

Well it's time to finish up my computer work. Until next time; Happy Quilting
