We have found that hard work pays off. We invest dozens of hours, meeting with representatives, and pour though their samples. We have found some gems. We have a new selection of fabrics that have rich and rare colors as well as many new fabrics with bold and rich patterns.
Row by Row Experience
Each summer Annie's participates in the nationwide Row by Row Experience along with hundreds of other quilt shops. It's fun and easy to participate! Simply visit any participating quilt shop during the summer, between June 21 and September 5, and ask for their free pattern for a row in a quilt. The 2017 theme is On the Go, and Annie's has created a very unique row for you.
Annie’s Quilting Den regularly welcomes visitors from around the world. San Diego is a wonderful place to live and visit. You can see that San Diegans are always “On the Go” as soon as you try one of our freeways. Annie’s is located near the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, and we used it for the inspiration for our Row this year. We captured a few of our favorite friends, on the go, just as the sun set.
Annie's and all of the participating shops are happy to give you the pattern for our row at no cost. While this event is similar to our local quilt run, it is different in several ways. There are no passports and no fees but there are prizes and free unique patterns hundreds of participating shops all across the continent.
Quilt Market - Hot, Hot, HOt!
Roz recently went to the Spring Quilt Market in Saint Louis. She found a number of great ideas for projects and the materials will be rolling in over the summer. A couple of items have just arrived.
Stained Glass Runner
Frank Loyd Wright Style Pattern
We have a pallet of fabrics that are perfect for the project.
Great Bags from Pink Sand
Kaleidoscope tools are a constant source of entertainment for the team at Annie's. Its hard to image that this Star is hidden in this fabric that just arrived, but it is. The only way to find it is with Magic, or using the kaleidoscope prospecting tool.
June 23 - 25
It is time to signup for our annual staycation workshop. This year we are making a dramatic bouquet of sunflowers.
This three day event is scheduled for June 23. If you want to attend, this is a good time to reserve a spot. Last year we were way oversold and with a little luck, we were able to schedule a second workshop to get everybody taken care of. We will probably only have one event this year.
Here is a couple of great butterfly projects, just in time or spring.
We have this pattern available and some great large scale prints to make these lovely creatures POP!
We really like this design by Elizabeth Hartman. We have some great fat quarters for you to use on this project.
We have this pattern and some Tula Pink fabrics that work well for this interesting quilt. The theme is metamorphosis, and it is made charming using a fox. Now you see him and now you don't; as he slowly melts into the background then gradually reappears.
Stop by and see the sample Barb has just put together.
Butterflies are fun. We have the pattern and some great fabrics for this Elizabeth Hartman quilt. Make a wall hanging, bed size or just use the center butterfly for a baby quilt.

THe best way to enjoy this craft is to find trick and shortcuts to improve quality and save time.
We are making plans for a new series of classes. We would like your input. Just navigate to our CLASSES section and then let us know which classes you are interested in and what times best fit your schedule.
As we factor in your requests, we will are post our updated calendar and summarize it below. We have selected some great new projects for our classes in the coming months.
QUILTING Class Policy:
Every participant must have their own pattern and their own tool set as required for the class project. No sharing. We find that sharing results in constant class interruptions. It also jeopardizes our trust relationship with our business partners and suppliers. And finally, it often violates copyright law. No refund or store credit will be given for cancellations made less than seven working days in advance.
Quilting Classes Coming Up
We are now featuring these cute, vintage gingerbread designs that will make either of them the focal point of your sewing room.
Olivia features a 2-position mechanism that will support a 45 pound machine and move your sewing machine into the flatbed and free arm positions. Pull the quick release lever forward to make your sewing well become flush with the top and use Olivia as a desk or another hobby table.
Olivia comes in fun vibrant pistachio green or a clean crisp white laminate.
If you would like a more compact sewing cabinet, consider Shirley. This sewing cabinet provides free-arm and flatbed sewing with an adjustable platform to accommodate different heights of machines. It has four drawers for plenty of storage locking casters.
The Perfect Sewing Machine
We highly recommend the Elna Star. Stop by for a demonstration. This machine is great for quilters at all levels. It is ligh an compact and easy to handle. Most importantly, it is smoooooth.

THAT ARE PERFECT FOR KALEIDOSCOPE QUILT PROJECTS.
Come see for yourselves! These quilt fabrics are really special.
MACHINE REPAIRS BY SEW PROS
We have partnered with Sew Pros for sewing machine repairs. We offer drop off and pick up for our customers. Of course, we would like to discuss your problem and make sure it needs to see the doctor. Sew Pros has been in business for over 50 years. They have given Roz, Barb and many of Annie's customers, superior service on all of their machines.
