Wow...my last newsletter of 2020! Anyone else ready to move on to a fresh new year? What a crazy ride it's been!
I have seen a lot of growth in the shop over the past year...my second in business! Moving to Priest River, Idaho has surely been a blessing for Cuppa Tea Quilting!
Thank you all who came out and took advantage of the two day, 20% off sale! I now have over 1,154 quilters on my email list...that's incredible. I also have 590 FOLLOWERS on my facebook page...I'm so blessed! Keep spreading the word about our little shop by the river!
PROGRAMS AT CUPPA TEA
December transports us to the magnificent sprawling landscape of Carrara. This final destination is absolutely perfect for the adventurer, looking to explore! Picture it... There is a low rumble and your eyes open wide in wonder as the 4×4 climbs to new heights, exploring the jagged cliffs of one of Carrara’s Marble Quarries. The landscape is uniquely majestic, harsh angles cut into the hillside, giving way to a stone once used to build the Pantheon, once chiseled and carved to create the famed sculptures of the Renaissance.
The Carrara Color Builder features 3 shades of 50wt thread...
a study of the coveted colors of Italian marble.
