September 2020 Newsletter
Ahoy, Watergirl Quilt Co. Crew!
Where has the time gone? I cannot believe that it is already September. It seems like yesterday when Watergirl Quilt Co. launched online but it was actually April 9th. Time flies when you're having fun and we are certainly having a good time with all of you! Thank you for being part of the "crew" at Watergirl Quilt Co. We love serving you in-store, by video appointment, online and through our Facebook live videos. We hope that you are inspired by the beautiful quilts being shared by the "crew" at our private Facebook Group: Share Your Creations.
So autumn is quickly approaching and that is the time that all of us quilters really get excited to start new projects such as new home decor for fall and Christmas and get thinking about presents to make for family and friends. Let us inspire you with our great kits, fabric bundles, new collections and notions. Oh and we now offer long arm services too! You can even choose to have your quilt returned to you with the binding already applied. Don't be overwhelmed by your quilting to-do list! Consult with us to make sure you have everything you need to get having fun and complete your projects.
Autumn is also the season for Workshops, Classes and Retreats! Do you miss learning with other quilters? Tired of just being on your own to sew and quilt? Want to have a good gabfest while playing with fabulous fabric? Then you will want to take advantage of our exciting workshop lineup and retreat opportunities!
Are you doing a happy dance right now? I know that the Watergirls are excited!

"This was my first experience with a Zoom class. Wow! It was fantastic! Susan's instructions were very clear and precise and her pattern is the same. I will definitely use all the fantastic tips and tricks she shared with us to enhance our sewing experiences. If you can get in on the class, I would highly recommend it"
