Closed Saturday

I will be closed on Canada Day and the Saturday following Canada Day this week. I think this will be my summer vacation as I will be able to string four days together. I am off to Huntsville to help Travis set up his new digs and then I will be able to rest easy at night. So, take pity on me I will be back at it on Tuesday morning.
THank you , thank you , thank you. To all the knitters/hookers who celebrated my birthday with me. Betty, I don't believe you think fruit and vegetables are reallly better than cookies or cakes but it was a nice change. I'm baking next week! lol
I am having a SALE this week on flannel. 50% off until closing on Thursday June 30th so for those of you who are making quilts for the fall you might want to have a look. There are new fabrics rolling in every day and I need more room. Don't forget the Wonderfil thread sale. 50% off all Wonderfil threads while supplies last, and they are going fast.

Hope all of you are having a great summer

Hook in Friday!!!

I know there are alot of you away at Trent Rug hooking School, but for those of you left behind I am going to go ahead with the Hook In on Friday June 24th. Please let me know if you are coming.

Brenda Allen taught the ladies another great bag class using the square in a square techniques on Saturday past. Congratulations to everyone, especially you Bev. I noticed that you were completely done when you left. It is such a nice feeling walking out the door with your finished project in hand knowing that you don't have to do anything else to it when you go home.

I want to remind all machine embroiderers that the Wonderfil thread is still on for 50% off while supplies last. I also have the Solu Film stabilizer in stock.
The indoor yard sale continues with 99 cent fat quarters. I was way overstocked with the number of fat quarters we have cut and I thought this would be a great deal for those of you who are doing comfort quilts.
Take advantage of a great deal while supply lasts.

Square in a Square

Another great square in a square class was held Saturday at Andjareenas and what a great job the girls did. Brenda Allan does such a super job and everyone had a great time. Maybe I can fit into one of the classes one of these times. Brenda also offers a techniques class using the Square in a Square so that you can take your ruler to new heights. Anyone interested in setting up a class or if there is a guild out there interested in having Brenda come and teach for the day you can contact me and we will set up a class at the shop or Brenda is listed on the CQA website as a travelling teacher. You won't go wrong having her come to teach!

I am clearing out my Wonderfil thread. It will be 50 per cent off until it is gone. Wonderfil also has a top stitching thread called Accent that is about the weight of #12 perle cotton and we are clearing it out as well.

Knitters meet on Tuesday afternoons from 1-3 p.m. and hookers on Wednesday same hours. We would love to see you there.
