After a pretty snow and frigid temperatures, I'm wearing flip flops today! Crazy weather! The shop has been busy this past week regardless of the weather. We had lots of great customers stop in! Here are a few of our favorites.
The Saturday "Tool Time" club met a week late due to the snow. It's so much fun to see these blocks go together! I'm also sharing some great projects that use the Curvy Log Cabin tool.
The night group of Beginning Quilters started this past Thursday evening. I love the excitement of beginners and how they are automatically hooked into loving fabric and being so enthusiastic about starting their first quilt! Annie does such a great job teaching these beginners. SO excited to watch these ladies progress through this class and see their finished quilts! Stay tuned!
Remember we are providing opportunities for you to come work on your club projects during the "Sit & Sew"
times this year or if you're not in a club, just come sew! We are changing this a little bit after some customer feedback. Regardless of whether you want to do some handwork or sew on your machine, come on either of the two "Sit & Sew" days provided each month and SEW!!! These days have been set aside for you to use our classroom and the supplies while you fellowship with others and work towards completing projects.
BUT . . . YOU MUST RESERVE A SPOT.
We are limiting the number of people to 10 on each of the sewing days so if you are interested you need to call and reserve your spot. It's totally free! But we only have room for so many so
let us know you're coming
and we will let you know if there is still room. You can get into the classroom at 9:45 and sew until 4:00! WOW!
Staff can answer questions and help you briefly but they will be working on the floor taking care of other business. This is not class time so please be respectful of our staff members. You can order lunch or bring your own. Come sew with us!
Did I mention it's
Deb has let us know that there are only 6 spots remaining for the first annual Great Grid's Event to be held April 28 & 29, 2017.
