We {Heart} Our SMQL Sponsors

What does a modern quilter do when she/he can't find the entire line of their favorite designer fabric in a local quilt shop? Look for it online of course!

Many of you already shop with this sponsor - Westwood Acres - but for those who are unfamiliar, let me tell you what you've been missing.

Westwood Acres speciality is gorgeous, MODERN, pre-cut fabric bundles (F8, FQ, yards) usually sold in complete designer sets. Every print. Every colorway. The entire line. Every time.

Amanda also curates bundles that are exclusive to her shop; has special sales that sell out almost instantly; ships to the far corners of the globe; has monthly "stash clubs"; involves the modern quilting community with her frequent giveaways; ships domestically for a flat $5.50 fee regardless of the size of your order; and has impeccable customer service.

Thank you Westwood Acres for partnering with us as soon we asked!

We {Heart} Our SMQL Sponsors




This week is ECMQG's First EVER!!! Sew Modern Quilt Lab and we are getting EXCITED!!  Many members have put so much time and effort into making this event FABULOUS!  But we surely couldn't do it without our wonderful SPONSORS!

Over the next week or two, we will introduce you to all of them, but today we will focus on 3 of our local sponsors who have generously donated items to make SMQL an event to remember.

Margie's Sew Much Fun is located in Crestview.   They have more than 3500 bolts of fabric in stock, are an authorized Bernina dealer, and are more than willing to special order fabric if you ask.  Margie's has a great selection of books, patterns, tools and notions too! 

Thanks also to The Sewing Center Around the Block in Fort Walton Beach. A lot of us may know Sheri Easom and her staff because of their machines - Husgvarna Viking and Brother, as well as their back room full of fabric. What many of you may not know is ECMQG held its very first meeting in Sheri's classroom space way back in September 2011. Thanks Sheri (and staff) for supporting us for so long!

If you happen to be in Destin, stop by and say hello to Michelle who is living the dream by owning her own quilt shop. Thank you Chalk Board Quilts for partnering with us!

 Be sure to thank each of these great shops for sponsoring SMQL when you visit!
