Hello all – we are still here!  I know it has been a bit since my last blog posting but I promise I have wonderful pictures of  things going on in the shop.  First, I will begin with the Doe Season Shop Hop.  In case you missed it here is a picture of our “Doe Blind”

We had a wonderful week with the shop hop and really enjoyed how everyone got into shooting the target with the suction cup gun!  Congrats to all the winners and especially Tari, who was the Grand Prize winner.  Tari won a $50 gift certificate to each of the six shops that participated in the Doe Season Shop Hop. We will announce information for the 2012 shop hop in the spring.

Happy Thanksgiving!  We will be closed Thanksgiving Day but we have scheduled some special classes for this upcoming Friday (11/25) and Saturday (11/26).  On Friday we will have:

Knitted or Crocheted Ruffled Scarf – Fri. Nov. 25, 11am – 1pm
This fabulous new fishnet yarn miraculously stitches up into beautiful cascading ruffles for an accent scarf that says “WOW!” The technique is so easy that we are combining a knitting class and a crochet class all in one. Take your pick! In just a couple of hours in class, you will have your scarf nearly done and ready to wear! Class fee: $10.00

English Paper Piecing – Fri. Nov. 25, 2pm – 5pm
English Paper Piecing is an older quilting technique that is emerging by leaps and bounds. It is accurate and very portable making it a perfect carry along project. The fabrics are basted onto precut paper foundations and then stitched together. New notions and techniques make this easier than ever before. New products, books and patterns are arriving almost daily. You are going to love the new designs available today. Learn the basics of this fun method today and you will be ready to enjoy all the new patterns and books arriving soon. Class fee: $15.00

On Saturday, in conjunction with Christmas in Paradise we will be offering these two classes.  As a SPECIAL BONUS each class has its own FREE  fabric kit!

Easy Mitered Placemats – Sat. Nov. 26, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
These placemats look so professional that you won’t believe how incredibly easy they are to make. Make one in class and you will be ready to make a set for Christmas! Class fee: $10.00. For this day only, your fabric kit for one placemat is FREE!

Pillowcases – Sat. Nov. 26, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
There’s nothing better than your own personalized pillow case! Make them match your décor or select a favorite print or patterned fabric. The kids especially love them in their favorite fabrics. They are so easy to make, you will be thinking “I should have made these a long time ago!” Class fee:$10.00. For this day only, your fabric kit is FREE!

There will be a wide variety of specially selected fall and Christmas fabrics 25% off on Saturday also!
