NOVEMBER 2011 NOTES FROM NANCY
November is just around the corner and Christmas will be here before we know it so it's time to get busy on those Christmas projects. I should be getting the new Primitive Quilts and Other Projects magazine on Monday the 31st. I am very excited to have my Redbird Pincushion published in this high quality magazine. I have kits available and what a nice Christmas present it would make for a special friend. It is very humbling to be listed with all the big designers!
Thirty bolts of Elizabethtown by Jo Morton arrived last Friday and the pictures are on the website. The girls have been busy cutting fat quarters, fat quarter bundles, and fat eighth bundles for your enjoyment. This week (Thursday) Jo's new book, Prairie Flowers Encore, came and I will need to order more. I don't think Jo got my last e-mail to double my order.
I have lots of new Needle Punch Patterns by Crane Designs and have pictures under Whats New on the website. I just got a re-order so that says everyone loves these patterns.
We have started a new Club called the Wednesday Woolies and we meet the last Wednesday morning of the month. This past Wednesday was our first gathering and I was really pleased that 7 of us were able to have a great time stitching wool projects. Please join us if you can November 30th at 9:30. We stitch till noon but I think we need to bring goodies and stay all day in November.
I have three hand crank sewing machines for sale. Peggy always finds the Singers and cleans them up and gets everything in working order. These are just under 100.00. Keep them in mind for Christmas presents. We hand crank the last Saturday of the month and always have a great time. We will be cranking November 26th and our project will be small Christmas napkins.
This is the first year in a long time I will not be having my Christmas Make and Take the Saturday after deer season opens. There are so many places to be on that day and I no longer have a lot of craft supplies. BUT I thought perhaps on December 10, I would have a drop in 5.00 wool ornament for you to make. More on this in the December newsletter.
I will be open at 8:00 A.M. on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving for special sales. All Halloween and Christmas fabric will be 40% off from 8-10 A.M. From 10-12 A.M. they will be 30% off and the rest of the day they will be 20% off.
The Wool Workers will be meeting every Friday evening from 5:30-9:00.
