February is turning out to be a beautiful month. I know, we're only one day in, but seriously, we got some new batiks in that we're putting on our batik wall RIGHT NOW. And we've gotten a few super cute patterns including new heart patterns becuase, well, Valentine's. In all the hullaballoo of running the shop, we're also closing in on our 100th (!!) quilt top done in house. It's hard to believe!
Another item of interest is that we're answering the call for a paper calendar for each month's classes. It may have taken me a month of Sundays, but I finally figured out how to get the calendars to print out. So if you're in the shop and you're wondering what classes are happening when, we've got you covered! February's calendar is out--just ask one of our amazing staff members.
Feb 3 @ 10 am we have a Beginning Sewing class with Cathy.
