Happy September !!

 Can you believe it’s almost fall already?  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for some pumpkin flavored chai tea!


If you have been in the shop lately, I’m sure you have noticed the new flooring!  It is really beautiful, especially the entryway!  I love the checkered look!  Now all we need is the bathroom floor to be covered and it’s like a brand new shop!  

Please take note of my new hours coming up soon...

Fall hours beginning on September 9...
Monday-Thursday 10-3
Fridays 12-6
Saturdays 10-2

Thank you to all who supported Cuppa Tea by viewing and sharing my video on Facebook for the Jaftex challenge...last time I checked I had over 4,300 views...that’s incredible!  The deadline is Monday so you still have time to watch it and share it tonight and tomorrow!

If you didn’t get to see it, go to my Facebook page and click the videos tab.  It will pop up as the most viewed video!  Thank you to my daughter, Ashton, for being my videographer!

 This is what will be covered in your class:

 Loading the quilt, batting, and top. 

 Floating the quilt.  Basting down the top.

 Basic meandering, loops, and leaves.  Basic echoing.

 Adding borders with the “quilt as you go” method.

POTHOLDER CLASS with Michelle...Wednesday, Sept. 22 from 10-2.  $20 includes a free pattern.  I must warn you...these potholders can be addicting!  Who in your family deserves a handmade beauty for Christmas?

This will be a monthly gathering for anyone needing help with their JN paper piecing project...each session is $20.

HERA...another awesome Goddess Tool BOM.  Set to begin on September 18.  Stop in to pick up your pattern and see my first block.  We will have an open sew every month to work on this project together.  You will need to select four colors to make this beautiful 80"x80" quilt.  A dark, two mediums, and a light.  I’m using a combination of batiks and aged muslin in my project.
