For those of you waiting for sock yarn there were six new colours of Jawoll Magic in today and two new colours of the Bambus. The nights are cooling down and before you know it the holiday season will be here so if you are knitting socks for Christmas now is the time. New arrivals are happening daily.
The Christmas fabric has been shipped and should be in the shop by the first of the week. I can hardly wait. With the twins coming in December I think I'm going to have to get really organized if I want my season to go well. I am very excited about the Christmas fabrics that I have chosen this year and I will announce it on the blog when the are actually in the shop.
I've just had a shipment of embroidery supplies arrive as well. Lots of new beads and threads to stitch with for the fall. Any Red Hat ladies out there interested in some Red Hat stitchery kits they will be on sale for half price.
This is the last week for the half price sale on Wonderfil thread so if you are planning some embroidery projects for the fall be sure to take advantage of the sale by Saturday at 4 p.m.
Cecile has been getting some classes ready for the fall and there are lots of great one day classes coming up. We know that women are busy and that the six and eight week classes are difficult to commit to so come and attend a one day class and go home and sew, sew, sew.
Janice will be teaching Oriental Rug hooking in October so sign up soon as the spaces are filling up quickly. There is also a sample on hand at the shop for Beginner Rug hooking and the morning class will be done as the sample and open. ie: if you already hook and want to work on another project Janice will be happy to assist you.
For those of you participating in Project Helmet Liner, please be sure to get your helmets in for the September 1st deadline. A big thank you to Rosemary and David for picking up all the helmet liners and delivering them.
