There will be two great chances for you to experience Christmas at Prairie Star Quilts in the next few weeks.

Julefest in the Danish Villages is Friday and Saturday November 25 and 26. The Boutique which I started in 1978, Prairie Christmas, will be held at the Immanual Lutheran Church in Kimballton this year. I sold the boutique to Cheryl Rosenbeck in 2000 and she has done a great job maintaining its primitive uniqueness. There is also a boutique at the Elk Horn Town Hall. At Prairie Star Quilts we will have a surprise Julefest Sale and lots of Christmas ideas. Our annual Show and Sale of Samples will begin in the Retreat Center. It's your chance to purchase completed quilts.

For many years we've held a Christmas Open House. This year it will be on Monday December 5. In addition to a sale and refreshments, we'll have a take 'n teach class at 2 pm. We always have a fun project. You must pre register (712-764-7012) so we'll know how many kits to make. Cost for the class is $7 or an in kind donation to the food bank.

Remember the Shy Little Kitten from Golden Books? Carol just made a sweet baby quilt using the fabric.

Julefest in the Danish Villages of Elk Horn and Kimballton is less than two weeks away. It starts the day after Thanksgiving and is the kick off of the Christmas Season in our two towns. We'll have craft fairs and great food and shopping. Here at Priaire Star Quilts we have our annual show and sale of samples in the Retreat Center. It will continue until Christmas, but of course the best selection is early.

One of our newer kits is Square Dance Garden by Jan Patek. I love it for Fall, but it could also be a Christmas quilt - I can see leaving it up all Winter.

The shop is full of new kits just waiting for you to turn them into the perfect gift. Come see them soon.
