Well, we have had the first 'delay' in opening the shop. Thursday I was chicken to come out on the ice.  Once you break a leg you get a little over cautious. Just a reminder that if the weather is delaying or closing schools please call the shop first before venturing out.  Deb and I preferr not to
 venture out and be a target for the other drivers. Weather permitting either of us will try to make it in as soon as the roads are cleared. The shop is located in the East Allen School/Leo  area for any public notices. Call first if you have questions.
Today was the second session of Evelyn's Quilt as you go Log cabin. What a chatty group but productive!  Watch the calendar for the next class soon.
 
Anyone interested in the new Eleanor Burns book Tales of Wives? If so I am interested in it as a block of the month. Call and  sign up.

We are celebrating Valentine's early. Stop in now and stock up on Fat quarters. All single fat quarters are $2.00 each. Sale now til February 18th.  Don't forget the drawing on the 14th for a box of chocolates.
Super Bowl now has become more interesting. Originally from Boston, Al and I can root for the Patriots. Our friends are originally from New York. Hope the party doesn't turn into a food fight. 
 
An order of books just arrived from Schiffer publishing.  Several are history books for collectors like me.

Deb is at home today, we think she has broncitis.

Please forward this information on.  Anyone not getting our email notices please check either by emailing a note to us or calling so we can correct our list. Also looking for someone to help update our address and email lists-pay is poor but the people are funny to work with.
 
 
Time to settle into the football games. This is a great time to do some handwork, get those bindings done. The weekend has been dampened by the weather but for all of us quilters it has provided some time to plan, pick fabrics, and possibly cut out the pieces for our next project. My biggest problem is I get into my books and patterns and start picking projects or reading some of the history and before I know it hubby is asking if I plan on going to bed.
OOps,the email I sent out had a problem connecting to the web site. Paste our web site into your favorites to avoid this again.
I am playing with the soft colors of spring and the primary bright colors which seems to be helping my mood.  Gray overcast days are the worst for me. Let a little sunshine in via your fabric.
The Fat Quarters are on special, pick your bundle of 10 for $20. 
Well now I have seen everything-football players going around singing! Time to go back to the sewing room til the game resumes.
See ya soon

Happy New Year! Ya I'm a little late. I can't say where the time has gone but maybe I can catch up. The holidays were busy with the usual cleaning the house and fixing meals but best of all the family was all here. Twenty-four hour circus of grand kids. Daughter Barbara was able to come in from Boston to catch up on being "Aunt Barb" for the week. The Grands are 16, 13, 10 and 4,  all into the electronic age. Even Jayden at 4 knows how to use the DS-he was teaching Gram and Grandpa!
Since going to market lots of items have come into the shop. Jewlery by Meg Hannan. Fabric lines include: Animal Magic by J Cain, Aunt Gracies Garden party (30's).  Riley Blake bag kits, Red work patterns, English paper piecing by Sue Daley designs, Bali pops and Good ole Maxine have all arrived. Due in are Yo Gabba Gabba, The Berenstain Bears, Susybee for the kids. Charlie Brown Christmas will be arriving in early summer. Daiwabo and Cocheco IV will add to the traditional lines. As I am typing a delivery of RJR arrived.  Another reason for you to stop into the shop often, you might miss something.
The hot items from market were the many English paper piecing patterns, applique and Red Work.  The shop now carries a supply of DMC embroidery/cross stitch thread.  
Check out the calendar for the new classes and events coming up. We will be adding classes directly to the calendar to get the information out to you as fast as possible. Let us know if there is a special class you would like to take, we try to please.
