Staff member of the week 
Patty Gallmeyer

You will recognize Patty as one of our great teaching staff!  She was co-leader of Quilt Club for 5 years and has always taught classes (some of you may remember her popular scrap club classes and Farmer's Wife classes, which she adapted to use the Marti Michell templates).  Patty has been quilting for about 8 years.  She bought her first quilt kit to make for her daughter when her daughter was a baby.  It sat in the closet for 9 years! She finally did make it - and as they say, the rest is history.  Patty loves to choose fabrics for a quilt and the piecing aspect of quilting.  She uses her Viking Sapphire 875 and Designer SE LE for all her piecing and embroidery needs.  Patty likes batiks especially in blues and purples.  

Some of Patty's favorite notions are the Marti Michell templates and tools.  They are easy to use and are multi-tasking tools. Patty has taken classes and studied under Marti Michell.  We are so lucky to have Patty as part of the Prairie Points family!  Look for future classes to be taught by Patty using the Marti Michell templates (if you have never tried using templates, this would be the class for you, they are great!).

Patty's words of wisdom for any quilting project is:   "Take a deep breath, put on your big girl panties and just do it!" 
Patty's pick for shop special: 15% off Marti Michell templates (in-stock only)

       Applies to in-stock products only.  Valid July 21 thru July 26, 2014
