Upcoming Events in 2016 & 2017

Here at Holloways, we are always busy working due to the events we have every year... This year we are even busier as we are now a part of Wilderness Wildlife week in Pigeon Forge. We just finished up Pigeon Forge, A Mountain quiltfest last month. It was a ton of fun! We enjoyed helping Ro Gregg and Patti Carey teach about different techniques and trends in the fabric business.

The girls at the shop have been busy getting ready for our next event, Wilderness Wildlife week.  Maria will be teaching some beginner quilting classes and will have a booth during the event. Wilderness Wildlife week is May 18th- May 22nd in the Le Conte Center in pigeon Forge. Admission is FREE! Wilderness Wildlife Week has a variety of programs for all ages and different interests, ranging from programs specifically for the youngsters to guided hikes for the more adventurous folks. The programs will be offered from around 8:00 AM until around 7:30 PM daily. For more information click here: http://www.mypigeonforge.com/events/wilderness-wildlife-week/

Help and StripR Fabrics

Hi everyone! Sorry it's been so long since we blogged..... I've been having trouble coming up with ideas for blog posts.... So to begin with.... I need your help, Please comment below with some suggestions for future blog posts. 

So, what I am so excited to share with y'all today is the amazing StripR fabric! If you follow Holloway's on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/hollowaysquilts) you may have seen posts about this fabric recently and thought "What is it?". StripR fabric comes on the bolt and is already in 2in strips. (This is what your strip fabrics become when you cut them to 2.5in strips and then piece them together.) So, this special fabric helps cut down on how much cutting you have to do for a project. It makes it really quick as there's less actual cutting work involved, instead you can spend all your time piecing and quilting.

Some of the amazing and easy projects we've done with this fabric are:
Table Trivets

 Star Wall Hanging

Table Runner (Free pattern available online)

Wall hanging (not quilted yet)

These fabrics make loop n shift and bargello quilts go together FAST!  What is one project you want to work on or that you're currently working on, that you think these fabrics would be perfect for?
