July- Harriet was in Canada for two weeks while I finished up the preparations not only for Shop Hop but also for the first ever Denver County Fair, where we were sponsoring the quilt competition.
August, was Shop Hop, where I served hot dogs, chips and brownies outside while stamping passports and chatting with the ladies from the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum.
September brought the beginning of the class schedule, and now finally
October is here and nearly gone and with it, a bunch of events... the biggest being the extension of our daily store hours. Monday - Thursday we are now open until 6pm, Friday and Saturday we are open from 10am -5pm, still and always closed on Sundays.
