It's Fall Ya'll !!!

If you haven't had a chance to visit our website... you must do so! We have the entire store decked out for fall and Halloween! It's gorgeous... the gals did a super job... it's my favorite time of the year!

Jill, Sue and I have just returned from Knoxville, TN. This was the first show in Knoxville that had been moved from Nashville. The convention center was awesome... large...bright.... and great folks to work with. We think the attendance was down; however, with this being the first show and the economy.. it was still great for us! I'm sure we will have many more visitors next year. I know I'm pushing for some buses to leave from Jacksonville!! We should have buses going to all of the big shows!

Speaking of big shows... have you heard about the Mancuso Brothers World Quilt Show that will be held in Palm Beach this November? It will be the 13-15 !! Mark your calendars... call all of your girlfriends and make plans to attend. The quilts they have in the show are A+ and they are from all over the world. They are fabulous!!

We're gearing up for our new 5 & Dime that will be this Friday and Saturday morning. Since this is the first session they are normally huge with attendees... so we're going for two mornings to be able to handle the crowd better. Come on in and start this wonderful project. We will have a Christmas and Fall for you to select from... or you can do them both. In addition we have optional stitchery for each season. Each of those patterns will be $2.00. You're going to love them! If you've always wanted to do embroidery... don't be afraid... I'm here to help you! It's so easy and you will become addicted to the calmness of stitching!!

I'm off to work on my new patterns that I'm drafting... the way.. we have NEW patterns from The Olde Green Cupboard on the website...go take a peek!

Chat with you soon..... gloria
