Limited Edition Color

A monthly paint is a paint that comes out one time. That makes them a limited edition. When they are all sold that is it for that paint. We don't use it in charting the transfer designs. They are paints that can add to your palette of colors and add special colors to your designs.

Well, I guess we are having our January thaw. It's supposed to go up to 50 degrees today. After that it will gradually go down until we're back into the low 30's and 20's. I hope all of you have good weather for a few days. It makes a nice break in the winter.

For my 'truck driving' customers - I hope you only have to drive where there is good roads and good weather.

The newsletters should go out within the first week of the month for this year.

Remember - if you need any of the individual monthly blocks from 2011 - you have until the end of January to get them ordered. After that, they are packaged in full sets.

Well, we have 32 quilt sets in the 'Line' now. They range from 6-piece, 9 piece and 12-piece sets. There is something for everyone (and if there isn't, just let me know what you need).

You can buy these as sets with or without quilt blocks. With blank quilt blocks they are $15.00 -$25.00 - $30.00. Without the blocks they are $9.90 -$14.85 $19.90. It is up to you what you want to do with these designs. You can make quilts, tablecloths, shirts, skirts, you name it. You have even more options now.

The new monthly quilts for 2012 can be purchased as: (just the design=$1.65) - (1 design transfer + 1 quilt block=$2.50) - (6 of the same designs + 6 quilt blocks=$15.00). Hopefully this will meet all of your design needs for this year.

Remember that with (6) monthly quilt blocks coming out each month that means that you have (6) new transfers each month and (6) themes each month. Have fun painting!!!

I have a wonderful customer, Zelda Long, in Oklahoma, who has sent me a great set of designs for a quilt set. I will be putting it out later in the year. It is a floral ABC Quilt. She did a wonderful job setting it up. Thanks, Zelda!!!! As I said it will come out in a special Pak later in the year.

I learned some new ways of doing things on the computer recently. Hopefully they will make my job easier and faster. I want to thank my youngest daughter, Mysti, for sharing her expertise with me. I know that teaching old dog new tricks takes a lot of patience (and luckily she has that). I only froze the Adobe program once and had to use the ever popular (ctrl - alt - delete) to get it back up and running. I know that I'm going to have to call her and say, "What do I do next? I don't remember." At least it's a start. Thanks again, Mysti!!

Well, it's warm enough that one of our flocks of wild turkeys are in a line going across the lawn and seeing if they can find any bugs that have come up in the nice weather. Since they keep pecking down at the ground, I would say that they're having some luck.

I really would feel guilty if I used bug killer of any kind on my lawn, since I would feel that I was doing the turkeys out of their dinners. Consequently, I never use any kind of sprays or granules on the lawn that's touted to kill bugs. This is cheaper for me and less work. The turkeys are happy and I have their 'left behinds' to make my lawn richer in fertilizer. It's, also, very 'green' of me, don't you think?

We have a large herd of wild deer in the winter, also. When it's warm enough, they go across the lawn eating the grass and weeds down. When it's not very warm and we have a deep snow cover - then I have to yell at them to get out of my flowers beds and quit eating my ever green plants.

I've planted some plants because they said the deer wouldn't eat them. Basically, I don't think they know my deer herd very well. They will pretty much eat anything that grows out of the ground.

Here is a tip to get more sales. It works!

If you sell paints to your customers, it will pay you to make sure they get a T4673 - Dots transfer. Make sure that they only fill in the paints that they have. What happens is that they want to fill in all the 'dots', so they keep buying paints, as they can, to make sure that happens


Monthly Quilt Club

Now you can buy the Quilt Block Sets with or without the quilt blocks being included. Just add NB after the quilt set.

In November I come out with the last (2) quilt blocks for each set, so you can get them finished and quilted for gifts or the holidays. That means as of November 1st you can buy the whole year's worth of each quilt (not individual quilt blocks), with or without the blocks – only the full quilt.

These come out one quilt block per month and you can order the present month and any that were put out previously. At the end of the year you will have 12 blocks for each quilt. (January blocks will be #01.)

I will put out a painted picture of each new quilt block in the newsletter. Then, I'm going to try something new; I will put the cover page (the one that shows when the transfer is in the plastic bag) in color, also, that way you have not only the chart to know what color goes where - but, also, a colored picture to go by. This should make it easier for you to paint them whether you are in a class situation or sitting in your home by yourself doing them every month.

Class News

January Seminar

January 19 - Here at Ginger's Cameo (4879 Sylvan Rd. – Manchester, MI)

The monthly workshop that is held here at the Cameo facility in Manchester will be on the third Thursday of the month, January 19th. I hope to see a lot of you here to learn.

We will be working on the first block of the Hearts 'n Flowers quilt set, and the first block of the Puppies quilt set.

You can do them on a quilt block or you can bring something else to put them on. I will be doing the Hearts 'n Flowers (HnF01) on a long white shirt (so I can do multiple designs on the same shirt) and the Puppies (PUPS01) on a sweatshirt.

Hope to see lots of you here.

Next month we will do the Seed Packs (SEED02) and the horses (Hors02). Seed Packs are easy, just outline and fill-in. The horses I will use to go back to washing in backgrounds with a brush, both wet and dry even though these techniques are not used on the charts for these designs.

In March we will do the Kittens (KIT03) and the Victorian Teddy Bears (VicB03).

When you're working on furry critters remember that short haired critters use short strokes of your tip or brush on the fur and long haired critters use longer strokes with your tip or brush. If you remember this one little rule, your critter will look much more like you want it to look.

You can always put in background, even when it's not called for. For instance, on the puppy designs, putting in a little sky and/or ground, just adds to your design and makes it look better and better.

(See our Current List of Teachers)

Any of you that hold one class or more each month should get your information to me so you can be added to our list.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you!!!

Final Words

I’ve been trying to hold down the price on shipping – but now I’m starting to lose money on it and prices are going up at the Post Office starting May 14th. (Prices at other shipping places have already gone up.) The increases they are talking about, on top of what I was already losing, means that starting May 1st, 2007 my shipping prices are going to go up.

  • Up to $100.00 retail the price will be $7.25
  • $100.01 to $200.00 will be $9.75
  • $200.01 to $300.00 will be $11.75
  • $300.01 to $400.00 will be $13.75
  • $400.01 or more – add $3.00 for each $100.00

Remember that shipping is figured on your retail total before your discount.

If you think I should give you a lower shipping amount on your order because it is a small order, you can call and we might be able to adjust it some. No promises though. I’m not in the business of making money on shipping, but sometimes the small orders are what off-set the big orders.

Well, I guess that's all for this month. Keep that those suggestions coming. I need every one of them. See you at a meeting.
