One Thing I learned this week....(updated Friday evening...)

1501 N. Main (Hwy. 401)
Fuquay Varina, NC 27526
(919) 557-0202

We have now put our current class schedule over on our selling site under the "This & That" section! Here's a direct link:


(Tuesday night....)

One thing we learned this past week...if you try and access our blog on your smart phone, the entire right hand side bar (with our address, phone number, and other important information) is completely left off! This led to several girls who were trying to find us on Saturday, have quite a hard time locating the shop. We are so sorry about that...who would have thought that 1/2 the blog would not be visible!
So, from now on, we'll make sure our new address/phone information and also the class schedule link is at the top of every new blog post! We've got so much new stuff going on and coming in..we don't want anyone to miss out on the fun!

Say "Goodbye" to our fairgrounds location....

After giving this much consideration, we are saying "goodbye" to our fairgrounds location. As much as we have enjoyed being out there with all of the other vendors and events, we have decided it would be just too difficult to continue with two locations.  That being said, we have two weekends left before "tear-down" begins for the State Fair and we will be running a BIG SALE on the items at our fairgrounds store. (Lots of stuff at 50% off!) Our final day at the flea market will be Sunday, September 23rd. So if you're out that way, be sure and stop by and see if there are any bargains you want to pick up!

Dont Forget!!

Wednesday is Sit n' Stitch
at our Fuquay Shop!
Come on in around 10a and stay as long as you like!
Teri will be bringing in treats to eat and there's
always coffee and chocolate on hand!
We've got a fun group starting to form for this weekly event...

Several new books and patterns came in today...I'll be posting pictures up tomorrow! AND...we received the charm packs and a couple of the fat quarter packs from Polly Minick's new line..."Independence Trail"...great colors!


Three new patterns came in yesterday from a new designer....The Pinkeep. They're in the shop now!

(Friday night)

One more thing (or two) to add to our update this week....

Hot off the press (and my front porch)...the fall issue Mercantile Gatherings magazine has arrived!!

 $8.95 per issue (WOW price $8.05)

Don't forget...two weekend left for us out at the state fairgrounds location! Most items 50% off..and great deals on furniture pieces as well!

Quilt Carolina starts next Wednesday (Sept 19th) and runs through Sunday, the 23rd! Be sure and come by if you are out doing the hop! We've got lots of great new kits to see, new fabrics, and other great finds! Door prize drawings every day and the coffee's always on!

Pictures coming soon of some new antique finds for the shop and the great cross stitch pieces we just received today from our dear friend, Ruth Martz, of PA. Her hand-stitched treasures always go quickly... so be sure and come in soon to see what just arrived!

That's it for us tonight...hope to see you soon!
