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.

Well, I think everyone was fairly prepared for the order stuff but our warehouse people are really "on the ball" anyway.  I can't take credit for that.  They are awesome people.  They really work hard.

Wow. Lou Ann you ordered it today & they already sent it?! Mari did you have xtra help hired just for us? That's so nice.

Hope they have already sent my order, too.:-D

I'm excited, I decided that June 1 is the perfect time to start working on gifts for the holiday!
Comment by Mari/WA on June 1, 2011 at 1:38pm
Yes, you are right Lou Ann.  You can send it back if you like, however, we will do projects from both books.  Did you look at the inside pages of the other book?  Do you like the projects?
Comment by Lou Ann Brach/MD on June 1, 2011 at 1:04pm
Well I have them both. I already got Table Top Quilts and ordered the other one today. I just called to see if I could drop it from my list, but it has already been sent. I can send it back, Jared said.

OK, this is what I'll do....  First, I so screwed up.  You know, y'all are so good at keeping me honest.....  the list I gave you this morning was the original list

This is what happened, once all the projects were chosen I saw that nothing was picked from those two books Lou Ann so I dropped them.  It was taking so long to get the "pretty" list up and I hurried and put the old one up thinking it was the new one.  Rats!  So, if anyone has purchased those books already I'll make sure a project is done from each of them and y'all can pick the project.  That would be fun!  You get to pick!  Tomorrow I'll put together a discussion forum for voting for a favorite project from each of the books Lou Ann listed below this post!  Well now, that's making the best of an awkward situation, huh?  I like the fun part!

Thanks, and enthusiastic!

Mari, the 2 books that they forgot are Simple Stitches Sewing - Cheryl Owen (45385) and Table Top Quilts - Best of Fons & Porter (45395).
