Our Quilting in the Country theme of the year is "Women of the West, Good Neighbors."
IMAGINE YOURSELF in this beautiful setting on Friday, August 16th. Suppose that the birds are happily singing and the day is a perfect sunny one. Perhaps your sister, mother or best quilting buddy is sitting next to you. Or a new friend in the making is nearby. It's not hard to imagine is it? Take a deep breath. Call Quilting in the Country to reserve your place
A Day in the Country is precious to all who attend.
We feel that our country setting lends itself to happy social gathering in ways no other location can equal. At first we were a bit daunted by this prospect, yet we believed our sylvan setting had the necessary ingredients for our country style outdoor mini classes. It does. The Day in the Country that I am asking you to imagine will, hopefully, be an idyllic one.
As you move from one setting of natural beauty of the surrounding farmland and pastures you will enjoy four mini classes. One class will be offered on our country pergola, another on the back porch of our bunkhouse shop, two other classes will be offered under the shade of the ancient trees in our front yard and near our glorious gardens.
We know you will delight in the occasion.
Expect to see clay pots, galvanized buckets and pails, even wash tubs, and antique farm implements decorated with blooming plants, plus sumptuous country bouquets culled from our fields and cutting garden. At lunch time you can relax on a scattering of old garden benches, or summer chairs pulled up to luncheon tables. Be prepared for a perfect outdoor lunch! You might even pick a few raspberries to accompany your cold drink and dessert!
Not an auspicious event, the Day in the Country is always distinctly imprinted with the values and traditions of our country setting. Call Quilting in the Country to reserve your place on Friday, August 16. $99 covers the country lunch, snacks, and kits for the four mini projects.
The next day, Saturday, August 17, reconnect with us at our Homestead Outdoor Quilt Show.
You will love drinking in the views of the surrounding Bridger Mountains (the Native Americans called our valley, the Valley of the Flowers) and the Big Beautiful Sky. Check out various original farm buildings draped with quilts. You may even find quilts hung in our trees and gardens. We will continue celebrating Western Women with a delightful presentation by Joanne Klare. Joanne, a true woman of the west, is an amazing story teller. You will love the stories surrounding her vast collection of family quilts. Also demonstrations and trunk shows will be available for your enjoyment.
Be prepared for a relaxing day filled with friendly chatter, meeting old friends, making some new acquaintances, being inspired by the quilts, creating memories within the genuine western hospitality and ambiance of Quilting in the Country. Relax with lemonade and cookies. These days just might be the best part of your summer!
