We've been talking about taking a cruise for a while now. What better motivation than a March quilt cruise with Brandy Maslowski as instructor. We are really looking forward to this. It would be even better if more Manitobans could join us.

In many ways this retreat is where I really got hooked on quilting. I was truly a rookie quilter when my daughter in law, Brandy, signed us up. I met so many kind and talented quilters at this retreat, many of whom I now consider dear friends. I've gone back every year since. There are still spaces available this year if you want to get away from it all for a few days in November.
We met Bill at the CQA show in Ottawa in June. He is a fantastic story teller and every one of his quilts has a story. He is teaching and speaking at Keystone Quilts this week. Very worthwhile if you have a chance. <https://keystonequilts.com/collections/classes>
Drop by our annual OPEN HOUSE on Nov. 16th from 12 to 5 pm for some Xmas goodies, door prizes, special deals, and a good time.
Just a reminder of this show coming up in a few weeks. We will be one of the vendors participating this year.
The first Interlake - Eastman Quilt Shop Hop that took place last weekend was a great success from our perspective and all the feedback we heard from participants was positive. We had 60 visitors over the two day event and asked the last two on Saturday to help us with the door prize draw.
And the winners are:
Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who was able to participate in this event.
35 quilters made the rounds to all 6 participating shops and were eligible to enter for the Grand Prize. We are pleased to announce that the winner of the Grand Prize is Edna Bennett! Congratulations Edna.
We will be talking with the other shop owners about whether this is something we should do again. If anyone has thoughts on this or suggestions about how it could be better please let Helen (or any of the other shop owners) know.
Thanks, and now, back to work.
We are having a big sale to commemorate our first ever shop hop - 20% off all instock items. WOW!
Join us for some refreshments and enter for a door prize draw.
Three days until the Interlake - Eastman Quilt Shop Hop. All shops will be open from 9-5 on Friday and Saturday. The grand prize, which you can enter to win if you visit all 6 shops can be seen at Fabriculous in Gimli. Look for some great in store specials this weekend.
Helen Maslowski is the owner and operator of Cedar House Quilting. She is ably assisted by her most charming partner Geoffrey. (Can you guess who wrote this?)
