Class of paper piecing rescheduled

Okay everyone - lets think positive. I have rescheduled the paper piecing demo for Wednesday, February 24th - 11:00am - 2:00pm. I am sure the snow will be gone by then, the sun will be shining and everyone will want to come out and learn to paper piece or just pick up a few new techniques from Pat Habenschauss. (Hint: Pat always has chocolate next to her machine!!) You can come in anytime during these hours - stay for a few minutes or watch for a while - no need for machines - my machine will be set up for you to play on.

We haven't rescheduled the hand-quilting demo with Roberta Farmer yet - but we didn't think we should push it!! We'll set a date soon.

Moda's newest line Garden Party is due in the shop this week - comes with a wonderful project sheet - I will try to get a sample made up and put a photo on here as soon as possible. I think it will be a good spring project. Eden - another Moda collection is already in the shop and is screaming SPRING, lots of pinks, purples and yellows - just waiting to be made into a spring runner or throw.

Don't forget Thimbleberries class coming up this Saturday - Jody was going to call everyone and make sure of which time slot (mornings or afternoons) you are going to be in. It is really great to have two classes this year!! (Although she will really be busy making those door prizes for both classes) Jody does have us spoiled - it's such a treat to see what she comes up with next. Not to late to get in the afternoon class.
