|First of all, I have to apologize for not sending out my newsletter last week. With Monday being the 4th of July, I just got busy with my family and missed my own deadline. Thanks for understanding.
PLEASE NOTE: This week we have altered hours due to reduced staff. Please don't let that stop you from coming in though; Ross and the rest will be glad to see you.
Tues-Sat: 10:00am - 4:00pm
There are a couple reasons for our challenges this week:
1) Some of you may have heard that one of our workers is facing some health issues and will be out for a few weeks. We truly appreciate your continued prayer for her recovery. If you'd like to help in any way, her family has set up a 'Meal Train'. If you'd like more information, please contact us at the store.
2) Shae and I are in Palm Springs, California, for BERNINA University. We're so excited to be here, leaning about all the great things BERNINA has to teach us.
|We are getting new fabrics in all the time. Please stop in to see the latest additions. Here are a few.
Don't you just love the flames, muscle cars and tread fabric!
Oh so lovely!
We also have some 1-yard and 3-yard flat folds at bargain prices. These are all pre-cut and wrapped (sorry, no cutting into these - you get 1 or 3 yards as they're packaged). These are end of bolt so once they're gone, there won't be any more of that particular fabric.
|INTRODUCING SOFTWARE INSPIRATIONS CLUB using BERNINA Designer V9. This club will meet once a month on the second Friday of each month, 3:00-5:00pm. It will be led by Dawn Smith. Our goal with this club is to instill confidence in using the software as well as sharing special tips and tricks provided by BERNINA experts.
I'm really interested in making a Temperature Quilt. This quilt is created using several different shades of fabric to represent the temperatures on each day of the year. For more details, see https://weallsew.com/?s=temperature+quilt. This quilt can be accomplished using a number of techniques; but, I think the one presented by We All Sew is rather easy and appealing. It is a very simple paper pieced design.
Keep your eye out for more details on when we'll be having classes to begin this project.
