A Message from Monica

Good Morning--
   Yes, Evelia and I are flying back today. We thought about staying longer, but after eating and drinking for a whole week we figured it might be best to come home while we could still walk and not waddle!
   I must say my wonderful staff handled everything perfectly while I was gone. Miguel took over not one but two different quilt guild talks. What a great guy he is! And a big thanks to Cheryl who helped him out. I also heard that with Mary’s help Miguel had a secret sale last week! Hope everyone took advantage of it.
    This coming week is BIG. It’s the last chance to donate to our Bra and Panty drive. You can help out some folks in need and earn chances to win one of two gift certificates to the store. Remember our Holiday Party is this Saturday—the earlier you come in, the more you save. See What’s Happening below for all the information. We will hold the drawing for our gift certificate winners at 12:00 pm--I know the ad says 10 am, but I changed my mind!

Just as it's hard to pick a favorite song, it's even harder to pick a favorite print in this new collection! We have a panel and 6 prints. fine tuning toss 
With Love A little love is shared in every print from the With Love collection by ©Turnowsky for Quilting Treasures. 9 bolts of dazzling hearts dancing in these pretty prints--so perfect to share with the one you adore. Think little outfits for little sweethearts, a loving quilt project, or...all you need to do is make it With Love.
Need an easy gift? How about a charm! We have a nice selection of sterling silver charms--add to an existing bracelet, dangle from a new one, include in a slip stitch crocheted necklace or hang from a chain.
