|April has been an exciting month for Hoppin Bobbin. We have had some great classes, some new teachers and some new patterns come out. I'm excited about the NJ Quilt festival that we are vending at this week. So, for our New York and New Jersey fans we are a little closer, stop in and visit this weekend.
May will be a slower month and I am looking forward to a little bit of down time for sewing and creating some new patterns. And trying to get prepared for a June filled with quilt shows.
Thanks to Barb and Elisabeth for holding the fort down for me while I'm gone. I wouldn't know what to do without them! Stop in and visit them this week!

|Sew Many Squares
with Lois Tidey
Saturday, April 28th from 9-12
If you have always wanted to “jump” into miniature piecing, this is a great project to make that leap. We will learn or review rotary cutting, piecing and pressing and ways to achieve a more pleasing and satisfying result. It will surprise you as you learn and improve your “jump” into miniature world.
Lois is known in the area for her miniatures, there is no one better to teach this class!
Lois still has some spaces left in this class. Call the shop or register online.!
|Rangley Wall Quilt
The streamlined construction of this star block was conceived while working at a retreat in Rangeley, Maine: hence the name. Using Deb’s Tucker Trimmer tool and an additional trim, all those complicated star points become simple to make. The project has a complex look, but is actually very easy to construct. Just what we like!
