Hello, everyone.
     Happy new year! I hope everyone had a safe and happy celebration. Patric and I were very quiet on New Year’s Eve—we were in bed by 9:30. So nice to wake up to cold air, sunshine and blue skies. And, speaking of cold, I’m headed to Idaho for another visit with my mom and other family members who live up there. On Friday night, my sisters-in-law and nieces will come over to mom’s house for a slumber party. Seriously! Mom will be in heaven just hanging out with all the girls. Let the giggling begin...
    At the shop, we are busy getting ready for Road to California—cutting, packaging, pricing...we are going through our list of what goes to the show and checking it twice—at least! Remember, we have tickets for $19 each and they are cash only. Last week I said we’d have them until the Monday of show week and usually, that’s true. But this year I have to be at the Ontario Convention Center early--on Sunday instead of Tuesday. So, tickets will only be available through Saturday, January 15. You just have this week and next week to grab tickets in advance.
    I do hope you will join us for the Spring Fling March 3, 4, 5—I’m showing you the fabric again this week because it is SO PRETTY. This is a "mini" run that can easily be done in just one day. The prizes are great and if you bring canned goods for the food bank you will get a coupon to use at any of the shops later on. Take a look at What’s Happening below for more info and a link to the Fling website.
     A couple of new fabric lines came in this week. Crystal Lane from Moda is a bit late arriving—we expected it with the rest of the Christmas shipments. Oh, well--time to get a jump on next winter! And a glorious new Folklorico group from Alexander Henry called Las Angelitas. You can see them both below. We also got in some extra wide Cuddle--restocked in navy, red and black, plus we added a luscious chocolate brown. So soft---nothing could be cozier.
     Don't forget we are "sale-ing" while supplies last: all of our Christmas fabric and kits are 25% off, pendants are 50% off and gemstones are 35% off.
     After Road to California I only have just one more show left in my career. It will be in Phoenix the following weekend--I hope to see all of my "show roadies" there! This retirement thing is totally bittersweet. I do love being with my grandkids and having more time to visit my mom but I will miss so many parts of this business. One of the hardest things will be not seeing all of you! Until then, I hope to see you in the shop.
    Read on to see What's Happening and What's New. As always, happy quilting and beading to all of you.

Classes, Classes, Classes!


On The Bead Side

 Theresa and Rose Mary are 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.
