We're starting off a little early this week with our blog update, but we needed to get this bit of information out quickly....

 Sabrina's Carolina Footstool class is this Saturday!!
Detailed information is on our class schedule...click on the red highlighted "Class Schedule" at the top of this page.
We have a pretty full class, but since this will be done outside (we're keeping an eye on the rain chances for Saturday...looking good so far), we have the room for 3 more. We do need a final count by Friday...
Just give the shop a call if you want to come and play!

We had a fantastic turn out and all the shoppers got great discounts!

A Note to the Farmer's Wife Participants!!

There is a "boo boo" in the size of the background fabric for the basket block in this month's kit. We are replacing the entire piece of fabric with a different piece of fabric.
If you need us to ship you the fabric, please contact the shop and give the girls your shipping information. Otherwise....come on by anytime starting Wednesday to pick up the new piece of fabric or we will include it in your May kit.

We apologize for the mistake!
