Well, actually, I can so much has happened the most noteworthy is getting married this past September.
Which, by the way, if you haven't seen it in our emails or on Facebook, my wedding dress that Harriet made and quilted and I designed the quilting design for and beaded is currently in our classroom along with many of Harriet's "travel" quilts... ones that are rarely seen in the store, but travel with her around the country.
In other news, I have been busy changing around fabric displays. The modern fabrics have been moved over with the solids as so many of the "modern" quilt designs today incorporate solids into the design. Kids fabrics have a fresh facelift in their new area and there are lots of fun new editions to the choices... most notably fabrics depicting scenes and characters for the movie "Frozen."
We also have, through the Christmas season, a whole display of fun stocking stuffer ideas as well as some great novels, some with a quilting theme and some not, all are great reads though!
We invite you to comment on our blog and let us know what you would be interested in us writing about on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. We want to hear from you!!
In case I don't get another post written before the holidays, please have a very Merry Christmas and we hope to see you in the store soon.
