Dear Friends,

We hope everyone is ready for cooler weather and quilting. New fabric is arriving daily! And we mean daily.  All the manufactures had such great fabric lines coming out this fall that we kinda went overboard.   We have some exciting events coming up.  The Mystery Harvest shop hop.  We believe you will love the panel and the companion fabrics.  On October 29th and 30th we have a national teacher coming in from Baby Lock to teach a class on the Destiny.  If you have been interested in a Destiny come check this class out.  Seats are limited.  We will have special prices on the Destiny during this event and financing will be available.  On Sunday November 8th we will have a new event.  We are calling it Building Your Future with Sewing.  We will have demo stations set up around the store highlighting new items, techniques, etc.  The more demos you watch….the better your discount.  Of course we have all are new classes we hope you will come in and see them.                   Take time to Sew,

                            Heidi and Winona
