Summer is here

The end of June.  A time for family camping and relaxation.  Ardelle will be at the lake near Camrose for most of next week, including Canada day.  Things slow down at the store while quilters relax, enjoy the summer weather, visit family and friend.
Here at Quilting From the Heart, we slow down for summer too.  In July and August we have fewer events at the store.  Only our Sampler Series - Patchwork Party II, Christmas in July on July 30, and our three weeks of classes featuring the patterns of Judy Niemeyer Quilting. Call the store for more information on both the Christmas in July day and the Judy Niemeyer classes.
