Here's a link to our on-line shop.

Good morning, everyone!

     I hope everyone found a way to enjoy Mother’s Day weekend. Our family is still physically distanced--since some of us are working on the outside and exposed to the public we feel it’s best to stay away from the little ones and the older ones. But we were able to FaceTime and chat with each other. It wasn’t the same but I loved every minute.
     The shop is staying somewhat busy selling fabric and elastic. Add phone and on-line sales—I am breathing a little easier. We really appreciate all your support during this time.
     Our new shop hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 to 4. We do appreciate when you call for an appointment--that way we don’t get too many people in the store and you don’t have to wait outside in the heat. Miguel, Evelia and Lety are all sharing days now so I’m no longer here every day, sometimes, by myself. I never thought I’d say this, but I’m just too old to do that anymore. Way too much stress!
     Fabric has been coming in again this week. Mary will post it in this Message for all of you next week. And Rosemary came in to help me place a bead order--I feel that things are slowly turning around for us here.
     This morning (Tuesday) Rosemary will show you some tricks and tips for making her Aloha Dress. And on Friday she will do the same for her Twirly Skirt—I call it the “perfect summer skirt.” both patterns are available on our web site. So, tune in to our Facebook live at 10 o’clock. Remember we present a live FaceBook event on Tuesdays and Fridays at 10 a.m. If you miss it live you can still watch it from FaceBook page any time.
Go to Monica's Quilt and Bead Creations on Facebook to see all of our live events.

    For now, happy quilting and beading, everyone. We miss you!
