Join the Club at My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe!

I’m always excited to tell you when my quilting friends are doing cool things! Did you hear about the new online club being run by My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe? They contacted me about offering a giveaway for this fun club to one of you – so read to the end for details!

My Girlfriend's Quilt ShopBut first, I have to tell you a little bit more about them. The shop is owned by talented friend Kris Thurgood. (Many of you also know her twin sister Kim of Kimberbell designs). Well, I first got to know both Kim and Kris over several years at quilt market and we had an instant connection. I love supporting women in business and especially love meeting powerhouse entrepreneurs that are go-getters in the quilting community.

A couple of years ago, Kris invited me out to teach at her shop in Utah and I had the most amazing time!! Of course the students were fabulous and the location was amazing! But even better was assistance I received while teaching. Just a month prior I had dislocated my elbow by trying to be a little too ambitious at the climbing gym (that’s another story for another day). To make a long story short, I ended up teaching one handed and everyone was so fabulous to help me pitch in and fold up my quilts for me and drive me around where I needed to go.

If you’d like to see a fun little blast from the past, check out these two videos that Kim and her staff shared about my visit from 2017. It’s a sneak peek into what it’s like to take a class from me:

Over the years, My Girlfriend Quilt Shop has carried a few of  my books and patterns in their shop. But the best news is, I just found out that they are getting my Gridwork fabric line in next month. So if you are local to the area – be on the lookout for that!

Be on the lookout for my Gridwork fabric coming soon to My Girlfriend’s Quilt Shoppe!

Anyway, all of this is to say that Kris and her staff are one of the reasons that I love being a part of this industry – we help each other out while inspiring our fans and customers to be the best quilters they can be!!

So now – onto the giveaway!!

    Piecing and longarm quilting are my favorites to explore. Piecing because I just love playing with fabric and sewing.and longarm because I have to finish those projects some day!

    Hi! I love quilting, I’m a beginner and learning all I can. I would like to learn how to paper piece and machine quilt. I am also wanting to learn how to sew using a serger. I am now looking into buying a serger, but, there are so many and I need to find out which ones are the easiest to use for a beginner. I am soooo very interested in this on-line club that is being started.
    Thank you so much and also, thank you most kindly for your free patterns Crista, who doesnt love awesome free patterns?!!! 😊💗👍🏻🤞🎈

    Right now I am interested in the topic of quilting since I am new to quilting and want to be able to finish some quilt tops that I have adopted from Orange County quilting Guild for their philanthropy project for vets. I know stitch in the ditch but wanna branch out and try other techniques.

    I love piecing, machine embroidering and serging, but I need to bump up my quilting game. I’ve purchased 3 of your quilting books and they are helping me get past my fear of quilting. Love your books!

    This club sounds like a blast! What fun to learn, explore and share creations with like-minded friends! I am most interested in piecing. It’s my favorite part of the quilting process and I’m always looking for new patterns, color combinations and designs.
