Happy October!! The fall colors are beginning to show and it gets me in the mood for porch sitting, hot cider, wrapped in a soft blanket! Maybe sitting around a campfire. It also makes me want to get to my sewing room and get busy on Holiday items. We still have Halloween fabrics, Thanksgiving panels and fabric and of course lots of Christmas. So come in and pick out your favorites. And remember to bring them in for pictures! We love to take pictures of your finished projects and post to our Facebook page.

We are again able to take credit/debit cards. Thanks for your patience.

We had so much interest in our Handi-Quilter classes that we have scheduled more for November 5th and 6th.
