We are also back to normal hours - Tuesday 9:30 -7:30, Wednesday - Saturday 9:30-5:30 - Masks, face shields, or face covering is required per the governor and me, yes I required them before the governor, but I have to keep my quilting family safe, so thank you for your understanding!!

An update concerning my mom: The cancer has spread to her liver. We have been on chemotherapy for one year now and the doctor will be going over our options and the status of the cancer on the 31st of July, so I will know more in August. I have been taking long weekends on occasion to spend precious time with her, so if I am not here, please know that I will be back soon and that I am with mom. Thank you all for your support and prayers, we truly appreciate them and they are what is keeping us going!
