Quilts, and a whole lot more…
Home of the Purple Cat Gang
On Sunday, May 3 NotJustQuiltZ is pleased to welcome Diablo Valley Quilters for their special “Road Trip to Niles”. What is a road trip, you ask? If you belong to a quilt guild, ask a board member to call Norman at 510-797-6579 to arrange your special day. What do you get? All members who tell us of their membership and show a valid membership card receive 20% off all purchases at NotJustQuiltZ (except sale merchandise), and 15% off at Color Me Quilts (except sale merchandise). Several of the merchants are offering gifts or discounts, too, such as the Hawaiian soap and candle shop, Niles Ice Cream Shop and Joe’s Corner. Remember, it’s one day per year per guild, so schedule your “Road Trip to Niles” soon.
Sunday, May 17, from 10 to 3, will be the Niles Wildflower, Art, Garden and Quilt Show. This year the quilt challenge voting will be held at NotJustQuiltZ and will feature a black and white, plus one color item that will also need to contain a reference to Charlie Chaplin. That is because this year Niles is celebrating 100 years since Charlie Chaplin and Broncho Billy opened their film studio Essanay Studios in Niles. The winners are chosen by viewer’s choice, so please come in on Sunday, May 17 to vote. The show will also have a garden tour, vendors and, of course, lots of quilts to see. Don’t miss it.
Judy Neimeyer paper foundation piecing classes will begin on Sat. May 23 and Sun. May 24. There are 3 possible quilt patterns which you can view in the Classes section of our website. We are pleased to have Victoria Johnson, a Certified Instructor for Judy Neimeyer quilt patterns as our instructor. Paper piecing enables you to get exact points and make very complex looking quilts all while learning skills to advance you to more difficult quilts. Victoria’s energy, attitude and no UFO policy will give you all the tools for success. Sign-ups are now open for the 3 classes. Happy quilting!

“I have to tell you that whenever I enter your shop I feel like I’m visiting friends and I’m certainly greeted as one of the family. I’m looking forward to completing many fabulous quilts together.”
