A Message from Monica

Good morning, all!
   What a crazy time this is. I hope everyone out there is OK and you are all taking care of yourself and your loved ones.
    In light of what’s happening I have decided to cancel all classes at least through the end of March. We will also shorten our store hours beginning Wednesday, March 18: Monday through Saturday 10-4 and Sundays from 11-4. I hope by April things will calm down and some normalcy will return. Meanwhile, we’ll continue to send out our weekly newsletter to let you know what’s going on at the shop. We are happy to ship--we can also take phone orders and get them ready for you to pick up. We hope to put more items on the website--this is new territory so thanks for your patience while we figure things out!
   On the bright side of things, Rosemary came up with a great idea to do a Facebook live event. Not sure how it’s done but stay tuned for an update on the date and time. I will be showing you all the things I had planned for my cancelled lecture with the Coachella Valley Quilt Guild.
         Happy quilting and beading, everyone.
