Welcome to Ma's Got'a Notion
So excited...Show Season is starting, Spring is in the air, the days are longer, and warmer temps are headed our way.
Here at Ma's, we got your back...quilt back that is!!!
Tis the season for QUILT SHOWS!!!
Quilters... new to the craft, now is the time to hone your skills by visiting shows to see what the veteran quilters have been up to the past many years. They will now have their latest works of art, on display.
New quilters you too can join in the show by displaying your new found talents.
Seasoned quilters, this is your time to shine and share your longevity of the craft with the new kids on the "block"!
I just LOVE Quilt Shows...don't YOU?!?!?! Especially now, after being trapped indoors all winter long. The time has arrived to get out and explore, the displays, vendors new ones and your old time favorites...you know like "Ma's booth" :>)...
We too have been busy, readying samples, packaging kits, and selecting great books and patterns to share with you at Spring Quilt Shows.
We are ready...are YOU?!?!?!
Find us not only at the quilt shop this Spring, but this year you can find us also at the following shows, so mark your calendars, and remember that ALL of these shows will be worth your time, as these Quilt Guilds, have had 3 or more years to create their latest master pieces and you will get to view them firsthand.
I am thinking that this years shows will be among the largest we have ever feasted our eyes upon...after all they have had years to plan, expand their venues and best of all make quilts for us all to enjoy!
So make a day or a whole weekend of it on the following dates:
Springfield IL. at the State Fair Grounds in the Orr building,
Fri. & Sat. March 18 & 19, 2022 http://www.springfieldquilts.com/2022-quilt-show.html
Decatur, IL at the Gary K. Anderson Plaza
Fri. & Sat. April 8 & 9, 2022 https://www.decaturquiltersguild.com/?fbclid=IwAR2WeSVWuzlI9GWAW9S0OmOJqbAhA082G8rX52xXSvsoxD9ztDzkxn8WlPA
Arthur, IL at the Otto Center
Thur., Fri. and Sat. April, 28, 29, & 30
Come Summer, I have more shows to share with you...Like Jacksonville, IL and Dekalb, IL too...What a thrilling Quilt Show year ahead, to look forward too!
And, don't forget that Aug. and Sept. the "All Illinois Shop Hop". This is the first year in IL for this HOP and I have a feeling that it will only grow from here.
Note: Ma's will have the "exclusive" fabric line for sale as soon as it hits our door...the only hitch is that the rules state we can pre-sale it, but we can't fill your order until Aug. 1st. Be aware, there will only be a limit amount of fabric for sale, so pre-order as soon as you see I post it, you will want to add this unique fabric line to your collection! https://allillinoisshophop.com/exclusive-shop-hop-fabrics/?fbclid=IwAR2Gj_3WLalDPHC79kD82gBWATgwGelp-naDwFBL-K5ED3mxiMOtofjv6Tg
