Lots of new arrivals

New arrivals of fabric and yarns every day now as we start to get ready for the fall schedule. Lots, and I do mean lots, of yarns arriving every day. There are so many beautiful colours of yarns this fall. I have been working hard shifting everything around in order to make room.
Monsoon arrived this week. I thought that very fitting considering the weather we have been having. lol. Woodland from Kertzer also arrived, a beautiful double knitting yarn that will knit up in waves of colour. I love it.
I am waiting impatiently for a very large fabric order and will let all of you know as soon as it arrives. This year every gift is hand made. I will have the joy of making it and the recipient will know that I took the time and effort to really think about them.
My daughter, Sheena, was down for a visit and had these great little snack bags for the twins. A simple fabric bag lined with a silky plastic type liner that velcros shut. It will hold a sandwich, crackers or veggies etc. When you're done, just throw it in the washer and reuse. All those plastic bags do not break down. They never go away. I know all of you have some scrap fabric and I have the liner. Make them for everyone you know.
Here's a big shout out to the Campbellford girls that headed down east for rug hooking. Hope you didn't run into Irene and if you did I hope you had a hurricane party. I know you did! lol
Drive safely home. Can't wait to see you and hear all the news.

New Arrivals

Although it has been extremely hot you all know that after August 1st we are heading into the fall of the year. Fabrics and yarns must be purchased for the Christmas present that goes on the list every year. I have just received one of the yarn shipments and a large portion has managed to move out the door quite quickly. Even if your're not knitting or sewing it's always a good idea to be prepared for that rainy day that some of us were praying for less than a week ago. There are a large number of new quilting patterns for the quilters as well as a good selection of yarns and patterns for the knitters that have rolled in already. Hookers, do not feel left out. We have lots of wool fabrics and backings so drop in and see us.

Bad Betty has struck again. I'm sure the gentleman sitting in his vehicle waiting for his wife is still wondering what goes on behind our sacred doors. What goes on at Andjareenas, stays at Andjareenas. lol
Pauline, don't encourage her . lol

I will be hosting a Spin In on Friday the 19th of August from 10-3.
Please call and let me know if you are coming. I am limited for space and don't want to turn anyone away.

See you soon
Mary Anne
