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!
