Dear Friends,

Fall is just around the corner and we hope everyone is ready to start quilting and working on Christmas Projects.

We have several events planned this fall.  First is the Mystery Harvest Shop Hop.  The fabric is beautiful and we think you will really like it.  We have a Mystery Embroidery Class and Ghouls (Ladies) Night out planned for October.  Both of these have limited seating so sign up early.  In December we have our Christmas  Open house with several other local stores.  In December we will have our first ever 12 days of Christmas event.

We have a full schedule of classes.  So come in out of the heat and join us for a class.

Take time to quilt,  Winona and Heidi
