January 2024 Newsletter

Hello Four Pines Community!

Welcome to 2024!

We hope you had a wonderful holiday season with family and friends! We appreciate all of the community support and enthusiasm we have experienced in the few short months we have been at the shop! As New England weather thinks about actually becoming winter, we want to do everything we can to support your creative spirits! We love it when you come in and share what you are working on, and ask for our input on what you might choose to work on next! Our days are better whenever you come see us! 

Last week we worked to complete an inventory check, celebrated Louisa’s birthday, gathered with family for holidays, kept the long arm machines running, and created some classes for everyone to come play with us! We certainly know how to keep busy!

New Shop Hours:

Tuesday through Friday 10:00am-6:00pm

Saturday and Sunday 9:00am-6:00pm

Closed Monday

If we have a class running in the evening the shop will stay open!


Here are the classes that are posted as we type this newsletter:


All Inclusive Learn to Quilt - Walk into session one with no quilting skills, walk out of session 6 with a completed quilt and the skills to make many many more!!! These classes include all of the materials you need to complete the quilt, and use of our classroom tools so you can decide which tools will work the best for you on your quilting journey! Think of all the folks who have told you “I wish I could do something like that” and send them our way! We are running a week day, week night, and weekend series of this class! 


Pillow Case Club - Learn a variety of ways to make custom pillow cases, some from yardage, some from panels, some with the burrito method, some with French seams! Come for one or join us every month! Beginner friendly and fun for experienced folks too! Leave each class with completed pillow case(s) and maybe even some new crafting friends!


Binding Party - Some of us may not enjoy binding our projects to completion…but we are going to make it fun! Join us once a month to bind your projects! You can bind by hand or machine, and we will have tips and tricks for those of you who want to improve your binding skills!


Twelve Months of Gifts - This series of Make and Take classes will help us all avoid the December crafting crunch! You can save these gifts up for next holiday season, or give them throughout the year as occasions come up! You will leave each class with a finished project ready to gift! Come for one or come for all! Beginner friendly, fun for experienced folks too! 


Hollow Star Table Runner - This CutLoose Press pattern is simple, fun, and easy to construct! Beginner friendly but fun for experienced folks too! We are offering both morning and evening options. It’s been in our window, and folks have been asking for it, so here it is!


Open Sew - Come sew with us! Work on whatever project you wish! Bring your machine and open sew is just $10 or you can rent one of our machines for $15 to sew or $35 for embroidery.


These classes will be posted as soon as the details are worked out!


Hexi Club - This will be a monthly club where we learn and play with the art of English Paper Piecing hexagons. We will start in month one building our travel kit, to make the projects portable. In the following months we will make projects using our new skills! 


Kimberbell Confetti Table Topper - A fun combination of quilting and embroidery with endless design possibilities!


Intro to Machine Embroidery - Learn how powerful our embroidery machines are, and how fun and user friendly they are! 


Rotary Cutting Skills - We hear from so many folks in our community that they would like to improve their rotary cutting skills! We will offer this skill building class soon!


What the NOTION? - We have a guest instructor coming to teach us all about all of the helpful notions out there! We will invite our community to bring the notions we have in our stashes that we can’t identify to see if they can stump the expert! This will be a free class! 


Bring a Buddy - This will be a series of classes designed to introduce our friends to the fun of creating with fabric! We will have beginner friendly projects that your buddy can complete in the class with you as a helper and an instructor to help guide the whole journey! We want to bring more people into our community!
