Hello, everyone!
   Boy--it’s a long drive home from Puyallup, Washington! Letty and I made it back Sunday night, tired but happy after a fabulous show. Of course, it rained for two days while we were there but it didn’t seem to bother the people from the Northwest. Letty and I were a little cold but did enjoy the change of the seasons. The trees were so beautiful.
    So, we are very excited about for our upcoming Bright Friday Sample Sale. Come in this Friday and Saturday to get great gift items for your friends and loved ones, items for your home--maybe even a gift for yourself. These are retired samples that need a good home. They are marked at basically the cost of the fabric. As a bonus, I’m offering a 10% discount if you pay cash for these items! It’s a win-win for both of us—you save 10% and we save the credit card fees. Of course you are more than welcome to use your credit cards, but the extra discount is for cash purchases ONLY. The sale will go on Friday and Saturday during normal store hours: 10 to 4.
    Thank you for all the underwear items you’ve brought in. But we want more, more, more. So many folks are struggling this year. Help make their lives a little easier with some socks, undershirts, bras or panties. You’ll get one ticket for the $100 shop gift certificate drawing for each item you bring in. Did you know that the #1 requested item from homeless persons is socks? Donate a 10-pack of socks and you’ll get 10 tickets for the drawing! We’ll draw names at our Holiday Party and Sale on December 11—mark your calendars! Pick up some great buys and, who knows, maybe you’ll also be one of our two gift certificate winners! All donations will be given to the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission.
   Our Halloween fabric is still on sale for 20% off thru the end of this month. Charms, Strips, Fat Quarters and yardage (minimum 1 yard cut off the bolt) are walking out the door so come in before your fave is gone, gone, gone.
    We've put two new kits up on the website--a quilt and a great zippered case.
Read on to see What's Happening and What's New--come see us soon!

   As always, happy quilting and beading to all of you.

Classes, Classes, Classes!

On The Bead Side

 Theresa and Rose Mary are now teaching limited classes in person at the shop. Here's how it works: to schedule with Rose Mary, give the shop a call. Theresa's classes are from 10 to 1 most Tuesdays and Thursdays. Class dates are listed on the website. The first 3 students to register on a given day determine what will be taught. There are links to Theresa's catalogs of 1 and 2 session classes below and on the website class pages. Theresa will contact you by phone to confirm your choice, talk about supplies, answer questions and schedule other sessions, if needed.
