We have had a busy time at the Farmhouse during April. A lot of people are in quilt alongs with others and needing 30’s, people are buying other fabrics after staying in much of the winter. We are also moving a lot of backings and battings.
A lot of people from other states have dropped by again to see us and love our prices. We have had a lot of compliments on the Merry Merry Snowman quilt that several of us started during the winter. If you want the pattern and buttons, I will try to get them for you. Some people have been doing Sunbonnet Sue and have enjoyed seeing Debbie’s black and white one and also Julie’s Valentine Sunbonnet. Several people are working in tiny pieces.
May I suggest you all find a project and at least spend a little time each day working on it and finding that special time just for yourself. Move those sewing machines out on the porch if you have one and enjoy the outdoors.
We have Moda Scrap Bags at the moment. A lot of people have purchased them so I bought more. You can google them if you don’t know what they are and you will also find patterns to use with them. I also have some of the Moda precuts still available. You need to check those out if you have not been down. You never know what you might find at the Farmhouse!
As I mentioned last month, I now have some Singer Featherweight 221’s for sale. The bisque and white ones have new homes now but I still have several black ones. 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.
I will not be open Tuesday the 10th or Friday the 13th this month!
