Good Day Quilters.
Well, it has been a long time since I sent out a newsletter! I think it was the first of July!! What a crazy, busy summer!! We were vending at shows, spending time with granddaughter, and then had to put father-in-law in assisted living, which meant cleaning out his house to put on the market. I know most of you have gone through taking care of your parents, and I have a better understanding of what you have done. On top of that, we had new sidewalks installed in front of the shop and we had Parade of the Hills!
I feel it is now time to focus on the “shop.” We are busy making new samples out of the great new fabrics. We are going to start by having more classes and events! Plus, bring back the popular “Quilt In”. “Quilt In’ is a one day retreat, on a Saturday with breakfast included. Our next one is scheduled for October 13th, Fee-$15.00.
August Coupon-one more week!! 13 fat quarters for $30.00, that is like getting four fat quarters free. September’s coupon is BATIKS!!! Batiks- $9.00 a yard, min ½ yard cut, -limit 10 yards!! That is like 25% off most of the batiks!!
