The Shop Hop is still going on!!!!!!!

OK, Mary is not here - she is Shop Hopping! Yay for her! I know I had a great time with 5 other quilters on Friday as we visited all the out-of-town locations.  We then paired up on our own to finish the local shops another day. We made 2 whole days of it - Friday was a mini-van with the 6 of us. We had custom-made tote bags for each of us made by one of the girls, along with binders of patterns - and each binder had a beautiful custom binder cover. Another girl made each of us adorable pincushion turtles with  removable/reversable shells. One made cell phone holders, and another made "Abby's Treasure Box" by This 'n That. We even scheduled 2 meals into our day.  We had so much fun!

The Always in Stitches has been very busy, too, with the Shop Hop - thanks to all of you! We still have the Shop Hop special with 20% off charm square packs. Selection is getting low, so if you haven't been in yet, make a point to come in SOON!

Deb Rammelsburg made some AWESOME cookies for the Shop Hop preview party last week and there were many, many requests for the recipe.  She has generously posted it on her website.  Enjoy!!

She also wants to make sure that you know . . .

Thursday, August 5th, from 6 to 8 p.m
is the meeting for the
"Sit & Stitch Redwork" group!

Bring along your redwork
or other hand-embroidery.

The group is just finishing up "Ring In The New" by Kathy Schmitz,
so stop in to see these finished projects.

The group is choosing their next project;
choices for consideration are:

BOM snowmen,
BOM baskets with flowers,
BOM barns,
or work on your own stitchery.

Feel free to stop in, see the finishes, and/or join the group.

Hope to see you next Thursday night!

We have some adorable new Halloween kits from the book, Happy Haunters, "brewed just for you by Kelly Mueller of the Wooden Bear". "Boo" is a set of three 'quilts', each approximately 6" x 10" and spelling out the word Boo. The other is a cute witch wall-hanging, "what did you call me?"

As always, we have some new books for you to check out. We've had lots of new fabric come in, but (THANK YOU!) it is going out of the shop nearly as quickly as it comes in. All the more reason to hurry over!
