I can't imagine life without sewing/quilting and all the great people I have met because of my sewing passion. I will be hosting a Facebook live on Mondays at 9am during September to celebrate sewing. I will be on the regular Times Square&nbsp; page. Tune in for a visit! Then in October,&nbsp;I will be doing the private group TIMES SQUARE SEWING -LIVE! again with tips and tricks starting in October. It seems that Tuesday mornings are going to work better so plan on Tuesdays starting in October at 9am. Looking forward to it. Email or message me if you have suggestions for episodes.&nbsp;<br /><br /> We have been trying to get back to normal for a long time. Finally decided to make a new normal. I have missed the interaction of customers and Rodger is getting comfortable being at home more by himself so I will be at the store more. Not positive I will have a routine schedule but will be offering more classes soon. Please let us know if you have any suggestions for classes or have a class we cancelled during COVID and now you want to get back to it. Starting in October we will have the Stitcher's Garden Class resume. It doesn't matter which block you are ready to do, just come and get back to it! We will try to get calendars out asap but check the website often.&nbsp;<br /><br />Have you seen all the new beautiful fabrics we have received? Here are just a few of the bolts.</p> <p><img width="770" height="329" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/10493/770x329_Quilters_Galazyjpg.jpg" alt="" align="" class="img-responsive" /></p> <p>I can't wait to show&nbsp;you the fun block of the month we are planning for 2023!&nbsp;</p> <p><img src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/10493/Andromeda_Sampler.jpg" alt="" align="" width="720" height="720" class="img-responsive" /><br /><br />In case you missed it the All Illinois Shop Hop continues through September. Magazines with passport, patterns and info are on sale at the shop for $9.95. Go to a minimum of 5 shops to get your name in on some cool prizes. The more shops you visit the more chances to win prizes! At each shop you will receive a quilt block to remember the fun. I want to make a wall hanging or tote with mine.<br /><br />While you are in the shop check out the CENTRAL ILLINOIS SHOP HOP pink tote for $4.00. While they last. During the month of October, bring the tote and coupon to any participating shops for 15% off regular priced merchandise. You can use it often. At all the shops. The whole month!<br />(Exceptions my apply at individual shops,)</p> <p><img width="564" height="428" src="https://siterepository.s3.amazonaws.com/10493/564x428_CISH_BAGjpg.jpg" alt="" align="" class="img-responsive" /><br /><br />We are also delighted to be selling raffle chances for a JANOME 3160QOV sewing machine.
