DECEMBER 2011 NOTES FROM NANCY
Thanks for all who supported Small Business Saturday. I had a VERY BUSY day and really appreciate all the sales. I know there were many who came just because they wanted to support our independently owned businesses in Charlotte.
Sales were also good for Black Friday but I do believe I could give the same discount sequence by opening at 10:00. I will remember that for next year!! There are a few 1.00 fat quarters left and quite a few strands of floss for 4/$1.00. Check it out in the back room.
If you haven’t been in the shop, you need to stop and check out Jo’s Variety. It is an awesome line of red and whites—not white-white however. There are fat 1/8ths and fat quarter bundles as it’s hard to just pick a few fabrics and it is a small line.
The Saturday Crankers met Saturday and we had lots of fun. If you have a hand crank or would like one, come and see me. I do have a few for sale. We will meet again on the 17th of December and probably all be really busy working on those last minute Christmas presents.
Debby will have one more hand piecing class in December and then will resume in January. Carolyn will start classes back up in January so if you want to learn to quilt or tat please give us a call. The new Jo’s Little Women Club will start up in February. I have pictures of the quilts but no instructions for Debby yet.
Carolyn will do the second series of Prairie Women Sewing Circle and it will also start in February. The plan is to have Jo’s in the morning and Prairie Women in the afternoon.
The Wednesday Woolies will meet on the 28th (Wednesday) of December for working on whatever wool project you want to start or finish!! We meet at 9:30-12:00.
Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and on January 2nd I will have a new newsletter with a great surprise for you. Until then—–keep stitching.
