SCRAPPY SHOP HOP: March 15th and 16th (yes, we’ll be open both days!)
WINTER HOURS: every Saturday through April
SUMMER HOURS: 1st and 2nd Saturdays (May through September)
HOURS: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Shop Hop is next Friday and Saturday. We’re so excited. I’m probably more excited than Sweetness is (he’s working on several projects that need to be finished before the Shop Hop). He hopes to have the new cutting station and another fat quarter unit built by next Friday. The new cutting station is going to be wonderful. I can’t wait!
Speaking of the shop hop: if you can’t make it during the shop hop, we are pre-selling our starter kits so you can still participate. I’m trying to get the binding on our Shop Hop quilt so you can see what it looks like. Wish me luck!
I ventured into the “man zone” this week. I was able to find the totes of scraps (notice I said totes of scraps, not a bag of scraps or a pile of scraps………..totes……. of scraps). We’ll put them out this Saturday. There will be three different sized zippy bags for you to choose from: large, medium and small. Each size will be priced accordingly. As in years past, put as much as you can into your zippy bag but it HAS to close.
Judy S. brought in the “Clamshell” quilt she’s been working on. She used (mostly) Kansas Troubles fabric so I instantly fell in love with it. She said it needs another row before it’s finished. I mentioned my birthday is in May but she just laughed (hysterically, I might add).  I love the colors and the pattern……..………my birthday is in May……….
Kay S. brought in the pillow part of the quillow she’s making for her sister in Texas. I thought she was making throws for her sister’s new chairs but, I was wrong, she’s making quillows. Kay put warm fuzzy fleece on one side of the pillow and then used “Texture Magic” to scrunch it up. This stuff is so cool. Thanks, Kay for bringing this in. We love it. It’s so cute………my birthday is in May………
I have a sneaky feeling our big order from Moda will come in next week………..just in time for the Shop Hop. YIPPEE! The good news is we’ll have a lot of new stuff…… least 24 bolts of fabric plus a nifty contraption called “Sip and Snip”. It’s a sturdy holder for your coffee cup (that attaches to the table) and has a bag attached to catch your ‘stuff’. Kay brought one in last Saturday and we fell in love with it. Since I have poor impulse control, we had to have some for the shop! We’re almost out of the Insul Brite batting so more of it’s on the way as is the Tater Bag batting. I can’t remember everything else that’s coming…..the 24 bolts of “Pheasant Hill” fabric by Kansas Troubles has me all worked up! My birthday is in May…….
We finally found out which jelly rolls are coming for the “Jelly Roll of the Month club”, well, at least through September. Here goes: “Snap Pop” by Sandy Gervais, “Paint Box Prints” by Laundry Basket Quilts, “Foliage” by Sentimental Studios, “Glamping” by Mary Jane Butters, “Modascapes”, “1930’s Playtime” by Chloe’s Closet, and “Mimi” by Cher Moi. We’re not sure which jelly rolls are coming each month but at least we know what’s coming. We also know this month’s jelly rolls have shipped so, if you’re in the “Jelly Roll of the Month” club, we’ll find out which one is March’s! They’ll be here by Saturday. My birthday is in May………
My cousin in Texas will absolutely positively be here for the Shop Hop. YIPPEE! I’m so excited. We don’t get to see each other very often so, this will be very special. Susan hasn’t been here since Mom died so, she’s never seen the quilt shop. I’m absolutely over the moon: she asked me to teach her how to quilt. I’m taking a couple of days off from the j-o-b so we can sew/quilt/play while she’s here.
Daylight Savings Time begins this weekend (BOO/HISS!). Please don’t forget to roll your clocks forward an hour or you might be late Sunday morning. We try to remember to do it before going to bed Saturday night. Who wants to get up at 2:00 a.m. to do it? Certainly not us! My birthday is in May……
We’re thinking about starting a “Kansas Troubles” club. I need some more information from Moda before making any decisions so, we haven’t decided yet. If you’re interested , please let me know as soon as possible. The more club members we have, the wider variety of things we have to choose from. YIPPEE! More stuff!
Sweetness said he’ll cook lunch for all souls present for “Sit and Sew” this Saturday. I’m not saying he’s making his world famous lasagna but I’m NOT saying he ISN’T J J J
I better see what Sweetness is up to….I wonder if he remembers my birthday is in May?

See you Saturday,
P-Dub and Sweetness
