It is finally getting cool and we are all looking forward to Christmas. Ellen is singing carols and dancing around the shop and we are all looking forward to moving to the new shop next year. I have been playing with the new Amara Handi Quilter and have gotten caught up and I have a few openings left in January if you need a quilt done after Christmas just give me a call.
I just have a few demo model Janome machines left, three to be exact, so if you are looking for a great deal on a Christmas present come on in and I can show you these great machines.
Come and enjoy some hot cocoa on December 13th, National Hot Cocoa Day!
We will have Marie's Famous hot cocoa for all and Christmas Carols on the speaker (and probably Ellen too!)
Our Holiday hours will be unchanged until December 23rd. I will be at the store until 5:30 that day and then the shop will be closed until January 2nd when we will resume normal business hours.
This will be just in time for this year's HOT One Stop Shop Hop on January 5 & 6
at the Convention Center.
This year's theme is Red, White, Blue and you!
Linda has allowed 12 shops to have a Block hop during the shop hop. There are twelve unique blocks and settings for you to choose from, however Linda has limited participation to 100 so get there early because these are some beautiful blocks and settings to make your patriotic quilt (ours is beautiful, even if I do say so myself!)
