Yesterday, a new saleswoman phoned, and I mentioned that I'd just
celebrated my store's 35th anniversary and she said "wow, you
sound very happy for someone who has been doing this for so
long!" LOL I wondered how old she was. ;)
I've sailed into my 36th year with enthusiasm. And yes, I am happy!
We've got some new "happy" stuff for you too.

In March we're going to start a new SEW ALONG.
TANNENBAUM from Edyta's Laundry Basket Quilts. I'm pretty excited about it! This quilt makes me happy. ;)
such busy lives, more and more people are doing sew a longs via home
computers instead of attending a class. And there aren't enough hours
or even days, for us to offer many classes in shop.
So we are starting a new online option to reach more of those busy quilters. There isn't a charge for the class, just a cost of the kits. We've got the fabric now.
We're figuring out the best way to do this. YouTube or Facebook, or a combination? We'll tell you more soon!
One more reminder, we hope you can follow us on Instagram or Facebook, (below is a shot of our front page).
posts lots of new stuff as it happens in the store. Models we finish,
show & share that customers bring in, boxes full of goodies as they
come in the door, it is all being shared on our social media. And maybe
a sew along!
When you get there, just click on "FOLLOW". It will change to "FOLLOWING" and you'll be all set.
Stay tuned to this newsletter, too, because I'll always have more to say than can fit in a mere "post". LOL
Don't believe me? Just check out my WISDOM WEDNESDAY videos on YOU TUBE. They are about as chatty "SEW NATURAL" as you can get! hahaha
This past Wednesday I passed along the "wisdom" of keeping your ROTARY CUTTER happy! Really, it is important! Check it out!
