Every one keeps asking when is our scheduled moving date... I cannot seem to answer that question. Mother Nature has been not so nice with all the rain, so we are at a 6 week delay until we get a freeze or the mud dries up! I will send out an email when we will be moving we plan on being closed only a few days in the transition.
Also the feather weight tables everyone is raving about, back orders are starting to come in!!! $249.00
I have had a lot of response as to the day retreats. I am offering you the ability to book a day retreat for you and your friends. This is to allow you to have full access to our class room daily from 9am to 6pm, just call and book for the availability. Many are booking Tues thru Friday and some are booking Thurs though Sat. There is no charge to use our classroom, we love the fun and excitement and sharing quilting with all of you.
Every day we have lots of new stuff coming in, I have been posting all the pretties on facebook, so you can see them asap.
Like I said busy and crazy fun!!
