Hello March! I'm not at all sorry to say goodbye to February. I heard a rumor that spring is just around the corner...
I'll believe that when I see it!
<<<MARCH BLOCK SWAP>>>
Our Free Block Swap is a Green and White Strip-Twist block this month! So far there are about 25 blocks turned in...if we can double that then we will have two winners!
Stop in to receive your free pattern or print out the pattern below.
Remember, every block you turn in earns your name in the jar to possibly win all the blocks!
The Strip Twist Drawing will be held on March 15.
<<<Looking for help in the shop>>>
This month I have my FIRST solo quilt show event in the Tri-Cities. I will then be headed to Virginia for my son's graduation from TBS (that's marine talk for The Basic School). I will be looking for a couple of people who would like to cover my hours in the shop. Give me a call or send me a message if you are interested. The hours are Wednesday-Friday 10-4:30, Saturday 10-4. I'm fine with having a few people share days so it makes it more pleasant for everyone! I'm looking for someone who knows how to cut fabric for customers, willing to learn my computer based point of sale system, and be friendly with the customers! I know there are several of you out there...I have the best customers that come into the shop!
Give me a call or send me a message if you are interested!
