June/July 2021 Hello Friends of Main Street Quilting Company,
We have so many fun Spring and Summer happenings... it's hard to keep up with them all or remember what they all were. We've been having monthly mini retreats and it's been lovely having time dedicated to sewing. We had a Shop Hop at the end of April- it was exciting to see you all out and about- enjoying being in quilt shops again. We will have another in the fall if you missed our Spring Shop Hop. Dates are to be determined. If you've been following along on Facebook, you'll know we've had surprise sales, video update with the Shop Hop winner drawings and have been showing the newest additions to the store. Like us on Facebook to see the most timely updates. In this newsletter, there are new classes, new kits and of course, new fabrics. All this and other fun things are waiting for you below!
Have you seen our Main Street Quilting Co. video- it was produced by a very talented MSU student. We posted it online and also on our website home page. See it here.

Chequamegon Meadows... Tree Block of the Month is now in class form. We have been making each class section into a video tutorial. Available in three colorway options...

When you sign up for the Block of the Month, you will be given video access to the videos, you will get your pattern and the fabrics to get you started on that tree section for the month. If you prefer to work in person, we have that option also- the last Saturday of each month starting in July. Work session times TBD. Check out our website's home page for a quick intro video!
