I have no clue where March and April went! I know that I had a few shows, and substitute taught, but wow!!! So here is the Summer Newsletter with a little bit of May added. The shop should be back to “Normal”, whatever that is, after May 19th, the last day of school.
We have rearranged the shop and made a larger class/studio area. Come in…I think you will like it.
I’ve been designing several new patterns…. some with wool…some are paper-pieced… some are even with selvages. I have lots more coming, so stay tuned and come in to see them. Most have kits available.

Friday Open Sewing…
On the Fridays that I don’t have shows or teach….come and sew on whatever you would like whenever you like from 9am until 5pm. Lunch is up to you…eat in or out. It’s just a nice time to sew with others. Just let me know ahead of time if you plan on coming. There is no charge for this.
Our Quilters Anonymous group has a great time visiting and sewing on the third Friday evening of each month from 6-11 pm. Bring in that project you’ve been meaning to start or finish and get in some uninterrupted time for yourself. The cost for the evening is $10, if we don't go out to at. **Please note that June's QA is June 9th and July's QA is July 7th.
