It's almost here!!!

Wow!  Can't believe our first Shop Hop is only two days away!  Get'll be loads of fun! And it appears that the rain will stay away.  Yeah!  The state has decided to re-pave Hwy 71, and....only one side of the street is finished (Note:  Hwy 71 becomes Mechanic Street).  So, if you run into some construction getting here, just persevere.  We are right across the street from the post office, in the Marek Building (look for our beautiful copper canopy).  There is ample parking on the square and side streets, so come on in.  Traveling mercies to all...Be Safe! We're looking forward to seeing you.....

Fat Quarter Thangle Club

I'm so excited to have our chosen Fat Quarter Thangle Club quilt sample, the Orion Star, in the store for you to see!  It's absolutely beautiful!  The colors include bright caribbean blues, purples, celadon and lime greens, and pinks and fuschias.  Made from Hoffman batiks, it will measure 80 X 96 when completed.  And because of the many colors, there are sooo many choices for finishing borders!  The starter kit is $60 and includes over 1/2 of the fabric needed to complete the quilt, plus the pattern and all Thangles necessary.  Then, for the next 3 months at $10/month, you will receive the remainder of the fabric.  Finally, all you will need are your borders!  It's a great way to make a large bed-sized quilt for a very reasonable investment.  And the FUN is free!!!! Ha!

We will also begin the "Aunt Grace Circle of Friends" Block-of-the-Month Program in September.  Wow! This quilt is really something!  It will definitely be a real treasure!  Call us and reserve your spot in the program as interest has been high.

We are really getting geared up for our first SHOP HOP......59 Road Trip!  This will be a great 2-day event...only 3 shops in 2 days.  Very do-able.  And lots of great prizes, door prizes, freebies, a small project, and refreshments!  So plan on a little time for yourself, grab a friend, hop in the car, and "beat the heat" with us!

'Til next time....happy stitching!
