 Monday morning....

Hello everyone...I thought I'd better get this out quick this morning to make sure everyone knows...

(Wow members will be able to come to our preview night, Friday, Nov. 16th at 6:30p...invitations are in the mail!)

The first meeting of our Civil War Block of the Month went smoothly and almost without a hitch...:)
We figured we were entitled to one mistake during the year, so we decided to use it on the first block and get that out of the way! If you're doing the project, we sent an email to everyone this morning with the details. If you didn't get the email, please let us know at the shop so that we can make sure we have it down correctly. We mis-cut the pink for the flying geese block...you'll need a little more to make that block. The fabric is at the shop and ready to go. You can either stop by and pick it up or we can mail it to you.

Metropolitan Fair is almost gone...if you're still considering getting some of the fabric from that line...you might want to consider it a little quicker...
We do have layer cakes (only 2 left now) and charm packs coming in..they should be here this week. There is a limited number available..if you want anything..let us know!

Jo Morton has released a preview sneek peak at the 2013 Jo's Little Women club...

starting this most likely in February!
