Here we are in the middle of July….hard to believe that we are on the downward slide toward the Holidays! We are trying to think in terms of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s hard to think about when the temp is in the 80s but they will be here before you know it. In my mind’s eye I can see a student, grandparent, a friend wrapped up in a warm throw maybe thinking of you for making them the blanket. Now is the time to get started and we have lots of warm flannels for throws that would make wonderful gifts for college students, older parents, or just for yourself or a friend on your list. Come in and check them out.

We have lots of events coming up. So be sure to add them to your calendar.

We have 2 Sit ‘n’ Sews this month on Wednesday, July 14th and Wednesday, July 28th. Times are 1 to 3:30p.m. You can sew (no charge) on anything you want. This isn’t a class!

We will also be doing our “Friday Night Ladies Night Out” on August 6th from 4:30 to 8 pm. There is a $5.00 charge for this.

Now is the time to pay your deposit for our In-Shop Retreat, September 24th & 25th. So if you have already signed up, just come in a pay the $30.00 deposit to hold your spot. We will again have Dana’s Catering provide lunch both days. We will have plenty of snacks and lots of time to sew and on Saturday we’ll do Show ‘n’ Tell. We have limited space so please get those deposits made!
