We have lots of things going on at Life's A Stitch to celebrate Canada's Sesquicentennial.1. Northcott Fabrics
has several challenges going for Canada's Sesquicentennial. There is the Trans Canada Block Party
and Life's a Stitch has two blocks in this challenge.
The block on the left was designed by Elaine Oliana and the one on the right was designed by Sandie Hrycyk. These blocks can be used in many ways. Click here to see some of the projects Sandie has designed using her block. We will have one of her quilts on display at the store soon! Northcott also has a Quilts of Valor Challenge and a National Quilt Challenge and a great line of fabrics to celebrate Canada's Sesquicentennial. We have the whole line as well as the Canadian pins, and pins for each province. There is an individual fabric panel for each province as well and we have all of them. Follow Mrs. Bobbins and her ladies on their virtual cross Canada trip. They will be making a stop at Life's A Stitch. 2. Trend-Tex Fabrics
also has a great line of fabric "With Glowing Hearts" and a Quilt Challenge
as well to go along with it. Pick up a pamphlet at Life's A Stitch. This fabric has been selling very well and stock is running low. It won't be available for long. 3. Contemporary Sewing Materials
has a great line of Cantik Batik fabric and a Canada Mystery Quilt
designed by Shania Shunga. Life's A Stitch has more than 50 people signed up for this Mystery Quilt and have been receiving blocks approximately every six weeks. There is a block for every province and territory and the plan is that we will all have our beautiful quilts finished by July 1! There is also a USA Mystery Quilt program available with blocks representing 13 regions of the USA. Patricia has been teaching classes to help us get our blocks done. We'll schedule another class when the next block has arrived and Patricia has made her sample.
