Dear Friends,

We hope everyone had a great Christmas and we want to wish everyone a Happy New Year.   Heidi started out the year with a new grandson, Easton Joseph.  We have a lot of new classes planned.  Hopefully we will continue to have good weather.  At least not as much snow as last year.  We are very excited about the projects being offered at our Embroidery Retreat in April.  Mark your calendars for the shop hop in July.

We are very excited about offering the Stitchers Garden Quilt.  Two versions will be offered.  One for regular sewing machines…Learn what all those extra feet are for.

And a class for embroidery machines…learn different techniques on your machine.

 We are participating this year in the Row by Row Pantie Raid.  From January 15th to 23rd, if you bring in a new packaged pair of undies, socks, or pajamas/gowns we will give you a free fat quarter of your choice.  The “undies” will be donated to the local women’s shelter.

                 Take time to Sew,    Heidi and Winona

We are happy to be offering several exciting new classes.  Many classes require a sewing or embroidery machine; please let us know if you would like to use one of ours.  Class fee is due when you register.  You can sign up at the store, by phone or e-mail.  If registering over the phone or e-mail, you must have a valid credit card.  Receipts and class supply lists will be mailed to you.  Full refunds on class fee will be given if you cancel seven days in advance.  After that, a 50% refund will be given provided you give us 24 hours’ notice.  If you do not attend a class and we are not given 24 hours’ notice, there will be no refund or rescheduling of your class.   Classes may  be cancelled if Cabell County schools are closed for snow or ice (please call ahead and use your own judgment in inclement weather).  If we cancel classes, they will be rescheduled or class fee refunded.  Stop by the store to register for your class.  Please be considerate of your teacher and fellow classmates who may have allergies – refrain from wearing scented lotions and perfumes.

Please have your fabric and supplies purchased before the beginning time of your class.  This is very important because
