I love the 4th of July. It's my favorite holiday of the year. Happy Birthday, USA!
Everyone who came to the shop wearing red and white and blue Friday and Saturday received two free fat quarters of their choice. Some of our customers came back Saturday too!
Not everyone was thrilled to have their picture taken so, some heads have been chopped out of the picture to protect the innocent!

|these three were so fun!|
