Happy Friday... Happy Easter!

Hey,

We have had a busy week at the shop this week. Last weekend we had Dear Jane on Saturday morning, Saturday night was the Irish Mystery. Sunday was the Book Club, and Brooke had a Twist and Shout Tote Bag class. Monday morning began with the Quilt Club investigating different types of batting. The green sale was going on, and we were busy. By Wednesday we were tired.

We are preparing for a busy week next week and a busy weekend starting the 28th. Aunt GiGi and Sharon will be holding down the shop. Brooke and I are going to Piketon with the Goodtime Quilters. We will be vending, working on samples, eating, laughing, having fun and hopefully, not doing much ripping. Mom, Joyce, Terry and Kathy will be vending at the CMQ (Columbus Metropolitan Quilters) show at the Whitehall Community Center. (Don't think they will be working, working working, they will be chatting, chatting, chatting... LOL) . On a serious note, there are many talented quilters in this guild. You should definitely check out this show.

We got a handful of new fabrics in the shop this week including some new Aunt Gracie fabrics, two bolts of cream colored buttons, some great Fusions by Robert Kaufman, and some Krystals by Michael Miller.


We got the C&T auto ship in, this is an automatic monthly shipment of the newest books from C&T Publishers. We received Ricky Tims new book: Feathers and Urns, Jennifer Chiaverini's More Elm Creek Quilts, and from an author I am not familiar with, Anna Faustino, Simply Stunning Woven Quilts. This is a stunning book.


Please put in your prayers, Denise and Holly, two of our employees. Denise is Holly's mom and she has recently restarted chemo treatments. They will be working from home for awhile, helping us with packaging our kits and other things that are portable. Also say a prayer for Joy Egan who recently lost her brother.


Have a great Easter weekend, we will be closed on Sunday so that we can spend the day with our families. Stop in and say hi!


Mary

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S Weekend !


March 15th, 16th, and 17th is our Luck of the Irish Sale. If it is GREEN, it is 20% off !



Last Wednesday we had our Weekday mystery and it had an Irish theme. I hope everyone had fun! At the end of the day Molly and Kate came in and did some Irish step dancing for us. They were adorable.... pictures to the right. We will do another weekday mystery on April 16th. Call the shop for details.



We have received more of the At Waters Edge fabric line from Moda. A new fabric line that Brooke and Holly picked out at fall market has arrived, its from Benartex and called City Girl and the fabric that Aunt Gigi's neices Christine and Bethany picked out called Woodstock has arrived. Woodstock is a groovy combination of blues and greens. City Girl has jumbo flowers, paisley prints, dots in teal, green and brown. They both are very hip and will be made into some very cool bags soon.






This is City Girl!








This is Woodstock!






Have a great weekend! We all need to slow down a little bit.... (I am qualified to say this because yesterday I got a $70 speeding ticket...lol) and enjoy the journey.


More later

Mary, Sharon, Brooke, etc...etc...etc
