Free Block of the Month Kits = Free Quilt in a year
Lickety Stitch has a new program planned for our regular and loyal customers to reward you for coming to our monthly events. September 14, 15, and 16, we will be giving each customer a free Block of the Month kit with purchase, while supplies last. Come to our monthly event for the next 12 months, collect the free BOM kits each month - and in one year you will have blocks to complete a cute quilt project. (The block kits will only be free during the event; however, if supplies last, they will be available to purchase for the month afterwards if you should miss an event.) Watch our newsletters for the dates each month that the blocks are available - they will be associated with events, sales, classes and demonstrations throughout the next year. We will be revealing the three colorways available at the first event this month. First come first served as far as the color-ways go. Numbers will be limited, so plan to come early to get your favorite selection!

Quilting for a Cause at Lickety Stitch in Lusk
WANTED: Volunteers to come to Lickety Stitch on Wednesdays in September, the 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th, to sew quilt tops, bags and pillowcases. These quilts, bags and pillowcases will be donated to charitable causes in our community, state, or other areas as needed. We would like to send some to victims of the Houston floods as our first donations. Join us as time permits during these Wednesdays between 9:30 to 5 - an hour, two, as much of the day as you would like. Volunteers will be needed to cut and press as well as sew. Machines will be available to use. Depending on how many projects are made, we may be needing more fabric donations. At present we have plenty of fabric to use for tops, but could use larger pieces for backings and pillow cases. Please call 307-334-9963 if you would like to help with these Sewing for a Cause sessions so we can have an idea of numbers to better plan the projects. If these sessions are well attended, we will continue them throughout the winter.
Pony Express Block Party
Pony Express Block Party coming up - September 9-24 Stop in to get our Pony Express stamp and pattern. We have the pins and Wyoming charms, as well as the complete collection (as of now!) of fabrics. However, they are going quickly and we have been reordering the fabrics every week or so the past month to keep up with demand. Each participating shop will provide a free pattern during the dates above. Our 12-inch block pattern, pictured above, was custom designed just for our shop by Polly Swayne.
