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.

I haven't been on here a lot lately (sick child, death in the family) but am keeping up with everyone. I love the bus trip idea - when can we leave. I could use the break from reality so make sure you stop in Iowa on the way. Maybe we could head somewhwere nice and warm with a beach too.
Ranchmom - the magic school bus show and books were favorites of my kids. I bet I still have the books - could bring them along on the bus. We could all dress as crazy as the teacher in the books too.

I have to tell you my DS#3 got to reading our post and started laughing so hard, He said Mom do you remember the TV show we use to watch THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS was its name about the bus that went all over and did history and sciences stuff well you guys have created the quilters version of that bus. He got up from the computer laughing and muttering to himself about silly women.

Got so carried away with this trip I forgot to ask if anyone did the heart cozy by machine.Can you really go around all those small loops by machine?

Can't wait to go!! chocolate comes first in my book,nice dark chocolate,some times with peanuts.With all the people going we might have to hook on a second bus like the semis do.

There are some Amish just West of Toronto. A place called St. Jacobs I think.
In Alberta we have Mennonites and Hutterites. They also do lovely quilting. But they live in separate colonies all over the Province so you don't see what they make usually unless you get to know them. They also make the best homemade bread and pies ever. Want me to pick some up for our bus trip?
i AM WOMAN,i AM STRONG BUT EVEN IF IT IS AN IMAGINARY BUS I AM NOT GETTING DIRTY ROTATING TIRES! That is time being wasted from quilting, chatting, eating,[or in Mary Agnes' case DRINKING], shopping and I guess Francine thinks we might even sleep! This bus trip just keeps getting better and better. At the end we will all need a week's retreat at the Hen House!
Love you all

I mean - Hoppy *hic* quilting!

Yes I need my wine too. I will bring enough to share. And Cheryl's chocolate.
I love the thought of all of us getting... hobbling... out of the yellow hippie peace bus and invading all LQS's. Especially after a bit of wine and chocolate. Sounds like a lot of fun.
Hopppy quilting!

WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - aren't we suppose to be in la-la-land if we want to survive in that life
only the ones that are not are not coping ........
that's the secret - to be or not to be......
Comment by Mari/WA on February 10, 2010 at 9:37am
Yeah Kit! We can have installed one of those tables (to the side of the bus) that will fold up when traveling but goes the full length of the bus!

Mary Agnes ~ I am in La-La land most of the time. It helps me cope.

What about a sewing area. We can't be quilters and not quilt. We need to grab all the time we can, So, we can sew, talk, giggle, and eat and yes drink coffee. Sounds like a good time to me. Kit
