Happy 4th of July!!
I hope each of you have a blessed 4th of July Holiday. We will be open on the 4th regular business hours (9:30 - 7:30pm).
I know that most of you have heard that we had an accident here at the shop where a car came through the wall. I want to let you all know that no one was hurt and that it was a mechanical malfunction, not a person driving recklessly or hitting the gas instead of the brake. The car did not stop and the lady's foot was on the brake. She is a regular here at the shop and I assure you that she was not at fault.
Row by Row is going strong, we do not have a winner yet, but I imagine one is in the works somewhere!
CHRISTMAS IN JULY WILL KICK OFF TUESDAY!!!
With approximately 200 bolts of fabric and more kits, tablerunners, wall hanging and ornament kits and ideas that you can possibly imagine. Please come in and see all that we have for this years holiday - I also ordered lots of nice gifts and stocking stuffers for the sewists in the family!
This month I will be one the road twice. July 14 & 15 will find me in San Angelo, Texas at the Tumbleweed Shop Hop - this is their first year to have a one stop shop hop! Then on the 28th and 19th I will be in Huntsville, Texas at their one stop shop hop - Christmas in July. The shop will be open and the ladies will be here to help you in any way they can. So stop on in, you never know what they may be up to while I am away.
