Dear Friends,

It is hard to believe that summer is over.  Now that cool weather is approaching it is time to think about quilting and making those special Christmas presents.  The Mystery Harvest Shop Hop is just around the corner October 2nd through the 5th.  We had such a great time at our Kids’ camp this summer that we are having a one day camp in November.

Baby Lock  introduced several new machines this month.  Their new serger, the Ovation, has variable speed, a 5″ sewing table and knee lift just to name a few things.  We have one on display, come and try it out.  They also introduced the new Journey, Aria and Rachel. We are now taking trade-ins on machines

Take time to quilt.

Winona and Heidi



Don’t forget the Mystery Harvest Shop Hop October 2nd -5th.
