Farmhouse Newsletter



Dear Quilters,

See info below for FARMHOUSE Date and Time


Just want to tell you what a wonderful month we have had despite the HEAT! Judy is back teaching her baskets and as usual they are beautiful and more are planned.  Everyone loves the Diamond Patch taught by our PR person, Debbie Taylor. We had the annual Farmhouse Retreat and everyone loved the weekend. Plenty of food, surprises and hot fudge cake!


September is always a busy month so we have a few things planned below.


I will have 18 new 30’s prints coming from Riley Blake. They possibly will be here by this Friday but you need to call and make sure if that is the reason you are coming. All of these are small prints in a variety of colors. A lot of people are back to buying the 30’s so I plan to have plenty.  


Singer Featherweight 221’s for sale. The ones I have now are black.  As many of you know, they are wonderful for taking to classes. With the purchase, you get free oiling and greasing for the first year. Is there someone on your Christmas list wanting a machine? Give me a call or come by. I don’t care a bit to take monthly payments.
