What's new here at Harriet's?
Well, lots actually.  We are jumping into technology in a very big way. If you have been following our emails and other posts, you will see that we have expanded how much we are on Twitter  and Facebook.
We are also creating a YouTube channel where we will be able to post demonstration videos for some of the really great products we have in the store as well as how-to videos from our books: Quilter's Academy. There's nothing on it yet, but there will be very soon.

We know this all seems overwhelming... we are right there with you! And if technology doesn't do anything for you, don't worry, we won't leave you in the dust... we are just exploring lots of different avenues to keep in contact with all our quilting friends and customers around the world.

We hope you like what we are doing and look forward to sharing all the new developments with you as they come!

Happy Quilting!
Carrie Hargrave
