Happy New YEAR 2017


I wanted to wait till today to write this on the New Year. You know they say whatever you do today you will do all year so I plan on sewing for sure. I also have several ministers I listen to on Sunday mornings and most of all being with my family. Oh, and also taking a bite of black eyed peas; I have to hold my nose to do this.


If you missed our sale in November, it went really well. Some Moda came in during that time and everyone loved and grabbed them while they were there. I still have a good selection of Moda jelly rolls, layer cakes and charm packs and a few frivols. Also, a few bolts of Moda.


During Nov and Dec I received a shipment of fabrics like I carry. You need to come down and check out some new 30’s, Christmas, and other fabrics. Hope to see you soon.


Mystery Saturday also turned out to be a very good class. Sandy Painter and Jenny Mullins have finished their quilts. I will be teaching it again on Monday the 2nd during our New Years Sewing day if you are a club member and want to take the class. Others will be doing their own sewing on the other side of the room.


We have had fun with quilt classes and basket making classes during 2016 and hope to have a lot more during 2017.
