Today I want to wish a happy Five Year Anniversary to the team at Sweet Treasures Quilts. While owner Terri Staats has been an inspiring part of the quilting world for many years, her Sweet Treasures Studio opened just five years ago this month. What I wouldn’t give to spend a day, or better yet a weekend, sewing away with Terri and friends at her studio! Isn’t this a fabulous space?
Located in Keizer, Oregon, Sweet Treasures is both an online quilt shop and a sewing studio/store. Terri began her quilting journey in pattern design and teaching, and years later she opened the studio. Sweet Treasures offers a wide variety of classes, as well as open sewing/shopping days and an option for private sewing days for groups. I’ve ordered the rag quilt kit you see in the photo below, but it would be so much fun to sew that kit with friends, like these ladies did!
Terri and her team are always coming up with fabulous, exclusive quilt kits
. Some are based on her own patterns, while other kits feature patterns and books by other designers. Just check out this darling mini quilt, Little Cottontail, featuring the Nest collection by Lella Boutique. The Sweet Treasures kit
includes all the fabrics for the top, backing and binding along with the pattern.
During the month of April, Terri has been running some specials and Instagram giveaways to celebrate her studio’s anniversary. I’m tickled to announce that Terri and I will be offering a Sweet Treasures giveaway via INSTAGRAM on Monday, April 15. I’ve listed our Instagram handles below, and you’ll need to follow both of us for a chance to win. (Full instructions will be provided on our Instagram posts on Monday.) Winners will be announced on Wednesday, April 17.
If you’re not familiar with Instagram, it’s simply a social media platform for sharing photos. The quilting community on Instagram is very supportive and inspiring. In fact, Instagram is by far my favorite social media platform. If you’re hesitant about getting started, just ask a young person in your life to get you set up. (Don’t be offended by my suggestion. My daughter helped me join the Instagram world!)
Now, to tempt you to join in the fun, here’s what we’ll be giving away next Monday via Instagram. Terri has created a custom fat quarter bundle of 13 “Cheeky” prints! Cheeky is an upcoming collection by Urban Chiks for Moda. Isn’t it darling? Be sure to visit us on Instagram on Monday, April 15, 2019 for your chance to win!
Terri also gave me the inside scoop that Sweet Treasures is running a free shipping special on all orders this weekend on their website! (Valid in U.S. only)
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog, quilting friends! I hope you all find a chance to get carried away quilting real soon!
