Sew Together Bag class

Please join ThreadBear and the Chicken River Modern Quilt Guild next Saturday for a very fun class day with our good friend from Albuquerque, Becky Welch.  The Sew Together Bag features three zippered interior pockets and has loads of space for organizing all your sewing doo-dads.  Or cosmetics.  Or travel toiletries.  This class is guaranteed to tame any zipper fears! The class is only $45 (pattern included) and we'll even feed you lunch! You can sign up here or call us at (505) 425-6263.


Cowboy Quilt Challenge Winners Announced

Yup, you read that right--"winners" plural! The judges of the Cowboy Quilt Challenge, sponsored by ThreadBear and the Chicken River Modern Quilt Guild, selected two very different quilts to share the top prize.
Challenged to create a quilt that reflected "the history, life, landscape, or culture of the Southwestern cowboy," Sharen Arelliano of Albuquerque offered a well-composed and -executed quilt using new fabrics in blues, cream, and burgundy.


Betty Dunbar of Las Vegas took a different approach, creating a delightfully homey and rustic log cabin quilt that could come right out of some cowpoke's saddlebags through the use of old shirtings and vintage prints.

Congratulations to both Sharen and Betty, each of whom will receive a $100 gift certificate from ThreadBear. We hope you will take the opportunity to come to the Bear and see the quilts in person while they are on display this month.
