Check out "Bonheur De Jour" - new From MODA. Isn't it gorgeous! My take on this is anytime spent sewing is a beautiful time of day.
That fabric on the far left is linen and it is a panel which consists of these 4 designs:
Fast and Quick, how about some 2 1/2" Strip quilts
|Have you had your eye on a new BERNINA? Now's the time. This is the last full week of BERNINA's 25% off Trade-in event. Financing is 0% for 60 months (some restrictions apply).
We have this beautiful BERNINA 590 Crystal Edition in the store. Boy, does it hum! Come in and check it out.
These Crystal Edition machines were manufactured in limited quantity so when they're gone, they're gone. This is the last BERNINA 590 CE I'll be able to get. I may be able to get a BERNINA 790 Crystal Edition so be sure to check with Heidi or Ross when you're in the store.
PFAFF CREATIVE ICON: I love this machine.

We're planning the 2022 Destination Retreat. This year it is "Owner's Choice" and I choose Drummond Island, Michigan. You may have heard me talk about it before; this is a very special place for me. We have a cottage on Drummond Island and I love being there. I just love the peace and tranquility of island life and want to share this with you. If you are interested in joining us please call or email me so I can give you more details. 269-459-1725 or firstname.lastname@example.org
WHEN: September 19-23
WHERE: (I have yet to make these reservations because I need to know how many are interested)
Lodging @ Drummond Island Hotel
Sewing @ Drummond Island Township Hall
COST: 2/room $745/person. 4/room $550/person.
HOW: You'll need to arrange and pay for your own transportation; car pooling, if you can. There are several great quilt shops along the way and we'll have a map available so you can pick your favorite spots.
Included in the price of the retreat will be:
* 4-nights at the Drummond Island hotel. Price varies depending on number of people to a room.
* Dinner Sept 19
* Break, Lunch and Dinner Sept 20-22
* Breakfast Sept 23
* Access to the Township hall (Sept 20-22) where we will set up our sewing stations. We can get in at 9:00 am each morning and stay until the last person leaves and locks the door behind them.
Those who attend this year's retreat will have first input on where the 2023 retreat will be.
I'm so excited about this and I hope you will be, too.
