Pillowcase Drive
 Camp Dragonfly is coming up in September and we are in need of kid oriented pillowcases so that each child goes home with a pillowcase from camp.  Some of the kids are older and we need to boost the inventory for older boys and girls.
Thank you for your help as we continue this project to comfort kids in our area that are dealing with the loss of a loved one through
Camp Dragonfly and Hospice of the Shenandoah!

  An Invitation from Rachel  --  'Sew & Tell'
Mom is still piecing her 20th anniversary blocks.
YOU'RE INVITED to sew along with her!  I am inviting you to sew along with me, this 20th year.
 I unearthed the 'mill wheel' quilt from 1997 - and finally put the binding on it. 
Then I actually re-invented the wheel.  I recreated the 8 inch block to be much more user friendly.

My goal is to make one block a week all year long, using a different fabric each week.


Come get your free block pattern!!


It takes a spool of thread...
It's that time of year that we start promoting and you start hearing a lot about shopping small. There is all sorts of retail research that shows how your dollar spent locally does the most good in your community, towns, local charities at the same time, supporting your local businesses. 

Your local shopping investment really does matter to us.  You have heard us say there are no small purchases and we really mean it.  Think of it this way...
if every person who received this email came in to the shop once a month and simply purchased a spool of thread, it would pay the rent for a month. Really! If every person added to that spool of thread a package of needles and a yard of fabric, it would pay salaries. Really!

That's what Small Business Saturday is all about. It's about reflecting on the businesses in your community that are meaningful to you, and about supporting small independent businesses so that they remain viable and vital. It's an easy thing to do year round. And it doesn't take much. Just a spool of thread...

We look forward to seeing you soon!!

 


MicroSealQ
 

MicroSealQ service now available at Rachel's Quilt Patch
We are ready to protect your quilt with MicroSealQ. We are so excited to offer this service that helps us protect our handmade items like we have not been able to before. It is the missing final step to protect our hard work.

MicroSealQ is s a protectant that sinks into the fiber and fills in the gaps that we tear away as we process the fiber into our desired textile form. MicroSealQ imitates the natural protection of the original fiber.

We will be treating quilts in 'batches.  Stop your piece by to get in on this run.  Check out their advertisement in AQS and stop by their booth in Houston if you happen to be down that way.


Sewing machine repairman will be on site the 2nd Friday of each month.  He works on Bernina, Featherweights, and older mechanical models of other brands.   Call the shop (540-886-7728) if you have questions or to schedule your machine for routine maintenance.


 

Thank you for supporting LUNGevity as we walked in Breathe Deep Baltimore.
Lung cancer takes more lives annually
than the next top four cancers combined
.


We invite you to learn more about Lung Cancer and LUNGevity. Lung cancer isn't a disease that just affects smokers. Monica was proof of that. And she was offended that anyone would think that anyone deserved cancer because of their life choices. Help us make a difference in lung cancer research through LUNGevity.

If you don't or didn't smoke,
you are not immune to lung cancer.
About 55% of all new diagnoses are among people
who have never smoked or are former smokers.

Want to see what we've been protecting with MicroSealQ? There are a few examples at #MicroSealQ

Sewing for a great cause. We continue to collect pillowcases for Hospice of the Shenandoah and Camp Dragonfly. Hospice uses the pillowcases we donate for birthday baskets for their patients. We look forward to your help in building their supply back up.

We also continue to collect quilts for our 'Tabatha Quilt' project. We collect small quilts that can be used for local chidren in need. This Christmas we were able to distribute 23 quilts to the Valley Mission for the children staying there. Most of those children are less than 10 years old. Thank you for helping us make a difference in the lives of local children.



Fabric, Gifts and History
Rachel’s Quilt Patch is “at home” in the 1860 railroad freight station in the historic Wharf District in downtown Staunton. In its heyday this place held boxes and boxes of railroad freight, moving it out and into warehouses across the street. In its new incarnation, quilters gather for classes and clubs, and yards of fabric are enthusiastically bought and sold. You are invited to come and share our place and our space, shop for all your quilting needs, ask for help, sit with Sweet Blue, our resident Siamese, and show us your latest projects—in process or finished. We are experienced quilters dedicated to offering personal service. Located in Historic Downtown Staunton at the Train Station (Read more about the Wharf District on 'About Us' page)

Inside our Shop
Our shop features: 100% cotton fabric collections from top of the line designers and manufacturers, craft patterns, books, & notions selected for today's quilter and fabric crafter.

 

We also carry a wide variety of gift items including Swedish dishclothes and Greenwich Bay soaps and lotions.

Pillowcases for Camp Dragonfly and Hospice
We continue to collect pillowcases all year in preparation for next year's camp, as well as for current and future hospice patients.

We love the Rolled Pillowcase Technique, (we use 3/4yard for the body and 1/3yard for the cuff.) It's up to you how you would like to do them but we find this technique the easiest. Come into the shop for a demo if you would like.  We ask that we have Camp Dragonfly pillowcases turned in by September 1st. 

We will continue to collect pillowcases for Hospice throughout the year. Thank you for your help in making a difference in your community.
