Good morning, everyone!
        Wow. Another week went by no grandkids. Sure do miss them! Hope all of you are safe and healthy. It’s getting hard, this physical distancing that we’re all doing. Let’s hope and pray that our world will be back to normal soon.
  The shop is still open this week on Thursday and Saturday from 11 to 4. We are waiting for a lot of elastic that I ordered to come in--we will fill back orders, put it on the website and let you know when it gets here. We do appreciate all your support during this time. Evelia is going to start coming in to help me one day a week and get new kits made up. I’m not very good at that job! Then Mary will put them up on the web and share them in this weekly email when they are ready for you.
     Check out What's New below to see some of the items added to our website in the last week. We've added several of Rose Mary's jewelry patterns!  Here's a link to our on-line shop.

     Drive by pickups are working beautifully--and those of you who need to come in, you can call ahead to schedule time so that we only have a few people in the store at once. You may come without an appointment—we may ask you to wait outside for a bit. You must wear a mask and we’ll ask you to use our hand sanitizer when you arrive. I so appreciate the love and support from all of you during this very difficult time.
      Our live Facebook events are still happening. Tune in this Thursday morning at 10:00 to watch me share some of my favorite things. Just go to Monica's Quilt and Bead Creations on Facebook to see our live events.
     By the way, I am doing lots of cleaning at home--are you? Well, so is Mary....if you signed up for our email awhile ago and this is your first issue, she confessed that clearing a pile of things revealed several sheets of names that were hiding. Welcome! (And, sorry....)
     We will also let you know when we are able to resume teaching classes. For now, happy quilting and beading, everyone. We miss you!

-Monica
