Notes from Nancy
Another beautiful day outside. Hopefully the weather will stay as nice
as it has been this week. Dick will be leaving with 5 kids under 12 for
Rainbow Lake in the morning. I will have one wonderful evening before I
leave after work on Saturday. Monday and Tuesday we move Sarah
(granddaughter) to a new apartment and then back to the lake for the
rest of the week and hopefully some fun. The girls will be at the shop
to help you with your sewing needs. Please visit them so they won’t be
lonely. Elise will probably have her NEW hexi project done by then. Her
1/4″ hexi project is all done and framed here at the shop. If you cannot
make it in, be sure and view it on line.
Since the last newsletter we have lots of new books and the 29 bolts of
Jo’s Savannah. The fat quarters and the fat eighths are bundled and
ready and several of you have them already. The whole collection of Pin
Money came a couple of weeks ago and we can take care of you with the
quarter and eighth bundles also. Check out the pictures at the bottom of
the newsletter. I have been busy on the machine making Carol Hopkins
Blue and Grey Trail. The kit is $45.00 and includes the pattern.
Journey to the Past is coming up the 26th and 27th of July. The ticket
to special deals in 4 shops, Jennifer’s, Everlasting Stitches, Creative
Quilting, and The Hen House will be worth the $5.00 Journey ticket. Here
is the picture of my quilt. The finishing kit is $40.00 and the three
block packet is $10.00 at each shop. I also have the pictures of each of
the quilts from the shops.
The first part of August I will have some more hand crank sewing
machines for sale. I am excited about that and will talk more about them
in the August newsletter. Our July Saturday Crankers will be meeting on
Wednesday, July 17 at Rainbow Lake and having a potluck. Bring your
hand crank machine, project, food and join us. Call me for directions.
