Happy Labor Day!!
I hope each of you have a blessed Labor Day Weekend. We will be open regular business hours over the weekend.
Row by Row is going strong, but remember it goes into hibernation September the 5th so if you don't have all your rows now is the time to hit the road to finish out your project, because no one can sell or give away the patterns during hibernation, and like bears it is a long time...October 31st! WE have a winning quilt in the shop Margie Burns created a gorgeous quilt from 13 different rows and it is hanging here in the shop for all to admire until hibernation time.
