Brrr!!!  It's time to drag out the space heaters at the Shoppe!  Welcome to flannel sheet and cozy quilt weather! 

It's also time to start clearing out the holiday fabrics so this weekend all Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas including yardage, precuts and kits will be 30 percent off!  And, all clearance fabrics will be $5.50 a yard with some special clearance items in the classroom marked as low as $3.50 a yard!!   On another topic, if you've been reading my emails you may have seen mention of a possible Sashiko class.  Sashiko is a Japanese decorative hand stitching/quilting art that uses long, simple geometric stitch patterns on a solid color fabric.  Like a whole cloth quilt, the design is all in the stitching.  Anyway, we finally have a date - Thursday, November 30th from 10:30 - 2:30 and a price, $25.00 class fee and $35.00 to Sondra at the class for the kit.  The kit will include a lovely project bag, a preprinted panel for stitching, batting, backing, thread and an assortment of "official" Sashiko needles to try!  All you need to bring is a thimble and a pair of thread scissors!  It's going to be a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to learning the basics of this art.  The bad news is that I only have 2 spots open.  I'm keeping this class small so everyone can get hands on attention and I've had some people on the list since August!  If you're interested please let me know ASAP.

Happy November!  Whatever your plans may be I hope you have a wonderful month.
