BLOCK OF THE MONTH
We made it through Super Bowl weekend! Teri and I wanted to thank all
of you who joined us for the sale. We hope you've had a blast with all
your fun, new goodies. From talking to some of you, it was Christmas
all over again. I can just picture you going home, dumping the bag out
on the floor and admiring your prowess and getting some really GOOD
stuff!!! It make us laugh! We really appreciate your patience with us
in the checkout line, but I understand that some of you made new
friends! So it's not all bad. As you can see, it's good we moved some
stuff out, as the new stuff is rolling in daily! This is a new
red/cream line from Minick & Simpson of Farmhouse Reds. The
projects are super cute!|Just
a few things to inform you. If you were at the sale, you might have
noticed the new projects we have for Block of the Month. Garden of a
King was hanging right behind the check out and for those of you that
were interested, we are going to have the STARTER CLASS (to give you a
leg up on the English Paper Piecing and any tips that we have for you)
on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24th. We'll start class at 10:00 am. Registration
is required. If you are interested, give us a shout. There is no charge
if you have or are going to register for the Garden of a King BOM.
Save the dates ... Carrie Golias from Carried Away Designs will be here to teach wool appliqué the weekend of June 8th & 9th.
We're hammering out the details now so will get back with you about the
specifics later. Just wanted, for those who are interested. to have you
mark it on the calendar.
