We will be starting a Featherweight Club here at Firefly Quilt Shop.
The Club will meet once each month on the first Thursday of each month; and you can either work on our group project for the month or on your own work.
Our only requirement is that you bring your Featherweight Sewing Machine!
Other items to bring may include: sack lunch with your own beverage, power strip, rotary cutter, ruler, fabric and project, etc. We have ironing boards and irons, a cutting station, and some extension cords for your use.
First Thursday of the Month
10:00 AM TO 5:00 PM
FIREFLY QUILT SHOP
FACILITATOR: LINDA ZUMWALDE (720-0467)
This will be a fun group. It will be a treat to see and hear all those little black (and white) machines purring. We will be a casual group – you can come and go when you want. Tell your Featherweight-owner friends about this new group.
WE NEED MORE PEOPLE TO SIGN-UP FOR THE BUS IN ORDER TO MAKE IT A GO. IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO GO, HAVE THEM CALL AND SIGN UP. Sign up DEADLINE is May 27th
We have been asked by many of you if we are sending a bus to the State show. We are happy to announce that, yes, we are getting a bus together for the MN Quilt Show.
As you continue to read, there are a few things that need to happen, in order for the bus to go. One of those things is that we need to have at least 40 people signed up. If we do not get 40 people signed up, then we will have to cancel the bus.
If you are asking yourself, why would they need to cancel the bus, well, we are not charging you extra to ride the bus, we are not making money for sending a bus, we are just making it a fun filled day filled with conveniences for all of you.
You will be driven to and from Duluth, you will be dropped off at the door when arriving to the quilt show (that means no trying to find a parking spot), you will be greeted by someone from the show committee explaining where things are at the show, and then picked up at the door for your return home.
We are now taking sign ups for a bus to Duluth for the MN State Quilt Show.
The bus ticket is $56.00
The show ticket is $10.00
Total fee to go = $66.00
The bus will leave Mankato at 7:00 a.m. and will depart from the convention center in Duluth at 4:00 p.m.
Sign up deadline is May 27th. If there are not 40 people signed up, we will have to cancel the bus.
Sign Up Policy: Payment is required at the time you sign up.
Cancellation Policy: If for any reason you need to cancel, you will be required to find your own replacement. If you are unable to find a replacement, your payment will be forfeited.
If you have any questions, or just want to sign up for the bus, call the shop at 507-344-0441.

For those of you who just need to get out of the house, or those of you who would like to set up a time for your mini retreat with friends......
Anyone can come in and sew at the shop during shop hours. We just ask that you call and make sure that we do not have an event going on at the time you would like to come.
Get a group together and come have some fun. It is always fun to use each other's mind to create new projects!
