Welcome to Gifty Galore 2016!

Our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season begins July 18th this year and runs through December 19th! And, Anita is back with more wonderful designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. It is compiled and written especially for us! Our newest Gifty book is the best ever for preparing a gift-giving extravaganza. There are even MORE small and quick projects. Hey, you'll be able to use the projects in this book all year long!

Get ready… prepare your sewing space, oil the machine, and finish up any UFOs because you’re going to be busy! I challenge you to keep up with us!

  1. Time frame is from July 18th - December 19th, 2016 for the weekly projects.
  2. Please post all project questions on Notions where you will find the complete blog. All information is kept together there for reference later and It's much easier to find!
  3. You can join at any time. If you are not a member of our Quilt With Us Community, click the "Signup and Join" box in the upper-right corner. Once you're a member, you will see a green plus sign and a link to join "Gifty Galore” in the upper-right of the group page. Clicking on the link will allow you to join Gifty Galore.

Welcome Marlene and Jennie.  It is so nice when we get new members.  This is a great group of friends.  We chat, tease, and go on virtual trips together.  Basically we have a great deal of fun.  Join in.

Mz. Anne and everyone else in the line of those  horrible storms,  I am sew glad that you all are safe and weren't hurt. 

I have a few of the books in my basket/cart and will be ready to order tomorrow when my check is in the bank.  I always manage to overdo when I should underdo.

Welcome Marlene and Jennie1  We do tend to chat a lot, but we do get some stitching done too.

Anne, gald to hear you're all OK - saw a pic on the front page of Yahoo that showed the storm sucking up water from a river it went by.  Very scary stuff.

DS called me at 5am today.  Never a good sign.  They were ordered to evacuate their ground floor apartment because of flood waters coming down from the north.  By 7am they had a foot and a half of water in their apartment.  Sooo - long story short, they are insured and everything will be replaced.  They got out the pics and important papers and the electronics, and they are fine.  The landlord said they would release him from his lease as Ft. Riley has a lot of 3 bedroom houses that are currently available and he will be able to move in.  The insurance company said that they should have an adjustor out there by Saturday - so all will be OK.  I told them I would come up if they needed me, but DS doesn't think they will.  So anyone out there where there are any storms, please stay safe!

Comment by Mari/WA on June 2, 2011 at 7:56am

The two books in question are:

Tabletop Quilts by Fons & Portor (45395) and,

Simple Stitches Sewing by Cheryl Owen (45385)

I will have a discussion forum above for these two orphan books, poor things.

Oh Anne, I have been with you in spirit! So worried about you! I'm glad that you and your sewing machine...I mean DH are OK. And Lou Anne's DD also. That looked loke a huge tornado. They really are scarey.

I have to go find the extra two books, in case I want to accidentally order them, too. We will make a cactus together, whether it's planned or not, OK Mari??? Please teacher?

YEah, MaryAgnes, I wanted to say something mean like you are an attorney for a reason, being able to figure things out, but I calmed it down a bit. That's not too mean, is it?

OK I gotta go look at the books again and place my order. Mari, your warehouse people are wonderful! Quick, accurate orders. I don't think I have ever gotten an order with something wrong. I love CT!

Welcome Jennie!  We've posted the books our projects are coming from above and the projects will begin posting July 6th.  If you run your cursor over the books above you can click on each book to see the inside pages and decide if its a book you "love".  We here at CT don't buy any book unless it meets two criteria:  one, we must love it and, two, there must be mulitple projects we want to make in it.  So, take a look at the books and join us!  We're happy to have you aren't we everyone!!??
