Notes from Nancy
I was so glad to see February end and March come into the picture!
Hopefully the ice we used to get in March was during February this year.
And–I just bought 50# of salt for the back end of the shop so that
alone should tell all of us that I won’t need to use it this month!
I am really excited to be a vendor for the Thornapple River Rippers
Quilt Guild on March 16th, and 17th. The hours are Saturday 9:00-5:00
and Sunday 9:00- 4:00. This takes place at the Barry Expo Center 1350 N.
Hwy M37 between Hastings and Middleville. I will be hanging lots of new
quilts and wall hangings. The Tavern House should be done by then as I
am ready to stitch the bottom border to the quilt. It is beautiful and
there are only four more opportunities to participate in this block of
The month of April starts the annual ROAD TRIP which includes 11 other
shops. The punch cards are still $5.00 and can be purchased anytime. You
will get great discounts in each of the 12 shops. My little quilt is
done and on display. May and June will have different mini quilts
hanging on the line. May is already done in my head! I have not had time
to price out the kit yet.
Don’t forget to join us the second Monday in March for open rug hooking.
The last Wednesday of March is Wednesday Woolies. We have lots of fun
at both of these events and there is no charge for participation. Just
bring your projects and enjoy the day with us.
The Saturday Crankers will not be meeting at The Hen House this month as
we will be meeting for a Mini Toga at Elaines II in Ovid. Everyone is
welcome to come and crank with us. I will give you a heads up for April
Saturday Crankers. We will meet the 3rd Saturday just for April only.
(My granddaughter is graduating from Grand Valley) the 4th Saturday and
of coarse I can’t miss the Saturday Crankers!
National Quilting Day is March 17th. So there is a 20% discount on
books, patterns, and fabric for you to use March 16th at the shop.
Check out all the new items below, join us with the Hexi Craze, and keep stitching.
