The Gammill team just returned from SUGAR Conference 2015 and what an amazing experience! The SUGAR Conference is an educational event specifically dedicated to specialized training for Statler by Gammill owners. It included three days of classes for different levels of quilters, a display of machine-quilted quilts and special exhibits, a vendor mall and more. The talent displayed in the quilt show and in the classrooms from both teachers and students was outstanding. Thank you to the SUGAR Board and staff for their hard work in putting together this educational event and to each attendee for their support of Gammill and for being a part of the Statler by Gammill family.
Many of the quilts from the show are available on our Facebook page.

The planning of SUGAR took a great deal of planning from this dedicated committee and many volunteers. Continue reading

3. Baste your edges down on your backing and batting of choice Continue reading
