Farmhouse Newsletter

  No classes being held in July. dt

I am writing this on Memorial Day and remembering why we celebrate it. My dad was a Marine and was so very handsome in his military pic.  I love making red, white and blue quilts. In fact, I have now made so many I could do a patriotic display. I also love buying a patriotic ornament every Christmas for the patriotic tree I keep at the cabin. It doesn’t hurt that red and white are my favorite colors. Have you ever made a red, white and blue quilt?  


We continue to have some road work on our “country road”. When you come to the shop the men will let you thru if you tell them you are coming to the farmhouse. I need your business so come on down this month.   


We are sending out many blankets, quilts, crochet afghans and pillowcases for Farmhouse Friends. We have started attaching a book mark and Farmhouse Friends info on the back. We still need YOUR help on the 2nd Tuesday of the month to sew with us at the Farmhouse. If you would rather work from home, we can supply you with yarn, fleece or flannel to make a special quilt, blanket, afghan or pillowcase for a child/teenager who will be so appreciative.  Some of these kids don’t even have a bed to sleep in and these are mostly kids living in our area, yes it does happen here in our town. Think about it, please. Many thanks to everyone who has helped us in the past and also continues to help us!


If you have tried to contact me thru email and I have not responded, try facebook, phone or txt me.  


I still have Singer Featherweight 221’s for sale.

Is it time for your birthday? Have you always wanted to sew on one? What about an early Christmas present?

Come and check these machines out.
