Three things! One for everyone, one for Anchorage area, one for Fairbanks.
One, we have decided to start doing a "Daily Deal" sale on the website! We have an app with a wheel to spin for the item and the discount amount. We will probably do it around 10 pm Alaska time, so for most of you it will start first thing in the morning. (The time zone messes us up a lot!) I will only post it in the On the Trail Creations VIP group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/614962188849895/) and on Instagram (also On the Trail Creations) for now, so make sure you are in one of those!
Scroll down to see today's, which is open to everyone, not just those two groups! Since it's getting a late start, we will leave this one up through Sunday.
Two, I have been invited by the Chugach Mountain Quilter's Guild to come to Eagle River next weekend for two days of classes and a trunk show! I'm very excited to be able to share with this group of quilters! The trunk show is open to the public, and is Friday, Oct. 5, 7:00 pm, at the Skyline Family Fellowship.
And three, our first official Colorplay night is this Tuesday, Oct. 2, 6:30-8:30 pm at my shop. (748 Gaffney, Suite 206) We will be working with Inktense pencils and now I have the blocks too! I will show you how to do the iris design, but you can do whatever you want, and however many cards you have time for. Cost is $10, ages 12-adult, everything is provided! And you will get a punch card for a free one after four. I hope to see you there!
Wow, busy week coming up! Happy sewing! Beret
I'm a little overwhelmed by all of the blessings from our quick two day trip to Anchorage! Amazing weather, stopped in FIVE quilt shops, and met lots of people, including my fabric angel! She loaded my car to the gills... This isn't even everything. The pile of fabric in front of the tubs is some of what I bought, mostly for card kits, but the pile is 10 yards, so that means the tubs contain probably hundreds.... wow... And a 'teeny' bit of card stock too! I might be busy for awhile....
And I'm willing to share, I'm still planning an open house next Tuesday, the 18th, 6:30-8:30 pm, for the Colorplay craft nights I'd like to start! I will have samples and a sign up sheet for the first few sessions. Age 12- adult to start with, we'll see how it goes. Stop in and bring friends!
If you are in Alaska, these are the 5 shops I stopped at: Twisted Sisters Quilty Pleasures and Quilt Cache in Eagle River, (I'm doing two days of classes and a trunk show there next month!), Seams Like Home and Quilt Tree in Anchorage, and Two Friends in Wasilla. Three of those were new to me, so fun!
Now I'm in the mad rush for bazaar season, but boy do I have fabric to play with...

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!

They target blood sugar and gut health, which are at the root of so many modern health issues. E-mail me for more info, or check out my website!
