Classes range from absolutely beginning to more advanced projects. We offer old favorite “reruns” to some new adventures throughout the rest of this year. Leetra has returned to celebrate with her pals the Celebration Dolls class offerings; Terrie Linn Kygar offers her Crayola coloring methods this term as well. Geary Cuniff shares the Theatre classroom once each month to offer her Quiltwork Patches favorite Sit and Sew opportunity. Wendy Green returns with her ever-popular Machine Quilting 1 a couple of times before the end of this year. Lynn Anderson comes to play with several quick and easy projects. It’s so good to have these special women within the walls of the Old Waucomah theatre inspiring you! Lou will be sharing some of her favorite classes as well.Karen is busy working on our 2019 Taste the Experience Row by Row Experience block. We decided to go the “Foxy Boxy” 18” square route this time. We hope you like it and hope we tickle your imagination! The Row By Row shop hop will begin June 21 and run through September 8. We have had SO much fun with this “Experience” the last five years and know that 2019 will only be more fun.Again we congratulate Lynn Reppas, Proprietor of the Leavenworth Quilt company in Leavenworth, WA. She and her shop are featured in the spring Quilt Sampler Magazine. We are anxious for the Quilt Sampler’s arrival! Rumors are true. JanniLou Creations, the Quilt Shop, plans on closing its doors at the end of 2019. I usually talk about new beginnings in the spring issue. As these doors close, we are all looking forward to new doors (and projects) opening up. We hope to celebrate throughout the rest of this year and to enjoy every moment of these last several months on location in the Old Waucomah Movie Theatre building in Philomath. It’s been such a fun journey. We are blessed and honored to continue as a Judy Niemeyer Certified Shop through the end of the year! Watch for some special news on this front as time progresses.  We have had such wonderful staff and faculty throughout these 25 and ½ years – and wonderful, amazing customers! We’ll be reminiscing a lot these last nine months and hope you enjoy sharing with us, too! SWAN cards will no longer be sold when our current supply runs out, but we will continue to provide punches on existing cards, and will honor the “coupon” they create when they are completed. (They will expire at the end of November). Don’t forget to check elsewhere in this CRF for this term’s SWAN card drawing winners! Other changes will begin to happen, but we hope to maintain a viable, healthy inventory through the year. Many items may become “special order” items as we move into the summer and fall months. As we sort and tidy, we are putting more and more retired shop and class samples into the “for sale realm.” Keep an eye out for special opportunities through the year.It would be lovely if the Waucomah could continue to house a quilt shop, but only time will tell. Your love and support has been extraordinary! We’ve often said, “there’s nothing more constant than change” and we hope to make this as painless a change as possible. Celebrate with us!!Celebrate your happy endings as you complete your UFO’s and other projects. We adore sharing in your show and tell! You are all amazing!  Wishing you the very best of days! Happy quilting. Remember: Every moment matters…including this one! Lou and JLC crew
