Happy 4th of July and God bless my quilting friends and God bless the USA !!! (remember the song?)


How many of you have been sewing and quilting this summer?  There is so much to do in the house and in the yard but try to find a little time to SEW!!

We are ready with plenty of fabric when you need some along with any other supplies you might like. Looking forward especially to seeing the ones that have not been in lately!!  Come and support YOUR local quilt shop.


We had our first “day and evening” sewing day this past Friday. All the tables were filled and we had a wonderful table of salads ready in the kitchen. We made it till 8:00 p.m., I guess we are getting lazy……………
