I love this time of year where the leaves are changing and we have some cooler weather. A little rain would be nice but this extended warmer weather has been wonderful. The down side... A little less inside sewing. Many of you have asked what is planned for this winter with the anticipation of some winter classes and sewing. I would love it if you would send me a little note via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you are interested in and times (days, evenings, weekends.).
I have been asked, how do you get to my website from our newsletter? There is a "Shop" link at the bottom of this newsletter that should take you to our website. Our website is improving with our new website host and more is being added everyday. You can soon shop in your pajamas. In addition...a new feature - Shop on line and Pick up in Store. I can see this being a useful tool when you are coming into town and your husband says - "I will give you just 5 minutes". Ha - he will be amazed or shocked!
I am going to be in Stover at the "Christmas Gathering" this Friday November 4 and Saturday November 5.
If you have purchased our Watermelon Quilt and wish to purchase the "Ant Gingham" fabric or the "Watermelon Seed" fabric for the backing fabric to pick up at the "Gathering" give us a call and I will bring it with me - we have bolts in stock!
Now is the time to sign up for Classes and Clubs starting in September. Early Sign-ups ensures we have patterns and materials needed for each participant. Discounts on materials required for each class and club.
