Spring Newsletter – 2011
After going through a period of weather with the old saying “If you do not like the weather wait a few minutes it will change.” We had snow on the daffodils that were about to bloom, and did a sad job on the skunk cabbage that always looks so pretty blooming in the creek. Now the Rhodies are budding out.
We were fortunate that a lot of the worst weather didn’t happen till after the shop hop.
Everyone seemed to have a good time, many traveling and spending time with good friends, relatives etc. which is something we sometimes forget to do.
Kathy did get the sample ABC-3D quilt finished and on display near the batiks. Come by the shop and take a look. It is very pretty. We also have a great new book for all levels of quilting – Not Your Grandmothers Log Cabin. It is fabulous and easy to read.
Many new spring pastels have arrived in time for Easter, along with some new patterns for children’s aprons and dresses. I am a spring person, I really love to see all the new things people have designed during the winter. Check out our website to see the new fabrics.
Mark your calenders – SEW OREGON SHOP HOP will be October 7th to 22nd.
There will be four regions – Northwest Oregon (including the northern coast)
Southwest Oregon (including the southern coast)
*Each region will have its own passport to be completed. So get ready to have lots of fun.
Do you have trouble fussy cutting into the corner when cutting out of the middle of a larger piece of fabric? We now carry the “FussyCut3in1” for $13.00. This will allow you to cut out the part you want to fussy cut. We also have a video in the shop so you can see the great results before you purchase.
We have a handy new stain remover pen. It is precise, quick, and easy to use. Good on coffee, wine, food, fresh blood stains, ketchup, tea, bbq sauce and more. It is easy to carry in your purse, briefcase, the car or keep in your desk.
We have a fabulous new collection of Rayon Batik Scarves and the colors are to die for.
Check new items on the website to see the colors.
