What's Next?

Monday Minutes with Gael Vol. 1 No. 16
Dear Modern Quilting Community,

The store will be opening again for limited in-store shopping on May 26. We believe the safest place during this pandemic is at home. If you know exactly what you want or need, we encourage you to order online or over the phone and pick-up curbside or have your order shipped.

Do not come to the shop if you are not feeling well and have symptoms. We are discouraging casual browsing and socializing, come to the store with a shopping list or specific requests you need help with. Please read and be aware of all signage at the door and in the shop in order to keep yourself and everyone else around you safe and comfortable. Until there is a proven vaccine or cure for COVID-19 we are still in the midst of a pandemic and we will be operating accordingly.

When the shop opens for customers on May 26, our priority is everyone’s safety. This is what you can expect:
  • Masks covering nose and mouth will be required for all customers and staff while in the shop.
  • Social distancing will be observed, please always be aware of your proximity to others in the shop.
  • Surfaces will be disinfected frequently and hand sanitizer will be available to all.
  • Class & event offerings and group sew days will be unavailable for the foreseeable future.
  • Shop hours for the time being will be Monday – Saturday, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM, Closed Sunday
Thank you for understanding and take care my friends!

Tula Pink HomeMade Challenge!

The Tula Pink HomeMade Challenge is a juried and judged quilt challenge sponsored by FreeSpirit Fabrics and Aurifil.

What Is The Purpose?

The challenge encourages quilters to pay tribute to what drives the quilter/sewist/maker to create with their hands, through the creation of a 60” x 60” quilt featuring 80% of the new Tula Pink HomeMade fabrics and using Aurifil threads. The jury, including Tula Pink, will select 12 quilts that speak to the glory, attitude and beauty that comes from the privilege of saying “Hey, I made that.” The 12 selected quilts will have the chance to be part of the HomeMade Challenge exhibit at the Fall International Quilt Market and Festival in Houston, TX in October 2020, and the opportunity to win over $10,000 in prizes!

How Does It Work?

Quilters can submit up to two pieces to their local US or Canada quilt shop. The quilt shop will then select one entrant/quilter to submit to the jury.

For complete contest rules, click here.

To view the online entry form and submit your entrant/quilter*, click here.
Entry deadline: All completed and signed entry forms and images must be sent to arrive no later than SEPTEMBER 30, 2020 to FreeSpirit Fabrics. (Note that this is a receive-by deadline.)
Tula Pink explains HomeMade designs


I am so thankful for your continued business. This international health crisis is going to be a rough patch for so many small businesses and that worries me for all of us in that boat. On the other hand, it has heartened me to see how local communities have rallied in support of their friends and neighbors. May we all remain united in the face of adversity and come through this healthy and happy.

Take care my friends!
