Forum Ornaments Christmas Tree

The Missouri Star Quilt Company Forums are a magical place.  If you need a friend, advice, an honest opinion or just someone to understand how deep your love for fabric truly is, then the forums are the place to go.  We’ve been amazed by what goes on there.  I don’t know how our forum members ever have the time to actually quilt because it seems like they’re always there, eager to answer a question or give a vote of encouragement.  It’s amazing and it’s all because of the forum members!

Well some of our super knowledgable and supportive forum members have taken on a special project.  They created a group that would set out to create stunning, handmade ornaments to send to Hamilton, Missouri for our shops.  We were so impressed by what we received that we had to give them a supreme location all on their own.  So, in the front window of The Sewing Center, we have our Forum Ornament Tree.  It truly is something special!  We LOVE every single ornament that was sent in and here are a few, so we can share the experience with you!

Retreat*Bus Tour*New look on the Forum

SO much to talk about!!

First of all I wanted to remind you all about our FUN retreats we are doing this year!  Mom has some fun things planned and Carolyn {our amazing coordinator has totally outdone herself}  If you are wanting a relaxing-fun-quilting filled retreat ours is the one for you! Go here for more information.

Even if you aren’t close, you could fly into Kansas City Airport, we are only an hour north of Kansas City.  {the easiest airport in the world to get in and out of.  just my personal opinion.}

The first one is coming up here soon….April 14, 2011  Call us to day to reserve your spot.  {and heck, bring a friend!!}  We can’t wait to meet you, hang out with you and sew right along with you!!

Next up:  The Bus Tour!  It is going to be an absolute BLAST!  We are promising the most fun bus, with the best prizes and snacks!  And we aren’t kidding, either!  {pinkie promise}  I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say, it will be the best bus trip you’ve ever been on.  🙂  I think if you have an anniversary or birthday coming up, you should request a weekend with us!  LOL!

Really though, call us and we can get you all ready for the trip or retreat.  1 (888)571 1122  or (816) 583 7722

Did anyone notice the new look in the forums??  LOVE IT!  It just made that fun place, even more easy to navigate and it looks great too!  I love the new look.  It seems so clean and concise!  Let us know what you think.  Also, if you haven’t been there in a while, you must check it out!  They are starting a new block swap, and have pictures of their projects and just a lot of fun!  Oh ya, and we added facebook connect to it!  So you can log-in easier!  AWESOME!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  My list just keeps getting bigger.  Lots to do.  Must mean spring is around the corner!  🙂


*don’t forget to check us out on facebook too.  We have lots of new friends and even more things to see and talk about. I put some cute links to an awesome pillow and a free printable!  Have a happy day.

Sweethearts for you….

If you remember a while back we gave away thousands of ‘Sweethearts’ Charm packs by Benartex.  We FELL in-love with this line!  We have had several custom quilts that we’ve made for customers and sold even more than we thought possible!  🙂

Jenny (my Mama) just finished this beauty to show off our easy-breezy charm pack quilt pattern.  I just thought you’d like to see the fun-bright colors that are awaiting you in the pack of awesomeness!  (in case you haven’t opened yours yet!)

And if you’ve found yourself needing another we just got them back in stock!!!

Have you made anything out of your free one yet?  We would love to see pictures!  Tell us about it and upload them into the forums!!

Have a happy Monday!!  {and if you are living in one of the areas affected by the snow/ice stay safe and warm!!}

Update (and the weekly giveaway)

Well hello there!  I know, I have kind of been MIA here on the blog and the Forums.  I am sorry I have been so bad.  My goodness has life gotten in the way lately!

Our move went fine, *cough (awful) but we are in our new home and are slowly adjusting!  The hard part for me was that the day after we moved in, I left for Sweden.  (Sweden-not so hard, leaving a house in total chaos- very hard!!!)   My dear sweet Husband ‘put the house together’ very bachelor-ish So I’ve been working on making the ‘very functional’ house a little prettier!  🙂  The move was hardest on my youngest and I think we have finally gotten him used to the idea that this is our new house!  Lots to do, and lots of projects to complete!  I’ll keep you posted on the stuff as we complete it!

Anyway, I have posted a new weekly giveaway question,(in the forum) so if you want the chance at a free charm pack this week, go there and answer my simple question.  🙂

You all have a great day.  And if all goes as planned you’ll be hearing a LOT more from me!  Bahahahah!!  (no, seriously.  I’ve really got to be better about updating!!)

The First of February…

Wow, this year is already flying by.  🙂  This weekend has gone by like a whirlwind…we have so much going on.  All good stuff , and are super excited about the forums being back up.  If you haven’t stopped in for a while, go by and visit.  There is lots of chatter and projects pics that are being shared!!  (my personal favorite)

We are still doing our weekly giveaway.  To be entered all you have to do is comment.

I had a little fun this morning, making my own conversation hearts!  I am fairly certain that the daily deal addict one applies to several of you.  (especially if we asked your husbands!!) Hahahah!

I could have played at this site all day!  It was so fun to say what I wanted too on those cute little hearts….This has gotten even more into the spirit of Valentines Day.  We are working on a few more projects for you to celebrate the day of LOVE!  Should be sometime this week….so hold your horses and we will be back here with some more easy peasy projects.

What would you put on a conversation heart??  Go here and do it.  Then come back and tell me about it!

Have a great Monday!
