Happy Leap Day to everyone!
What a gift to have an extra day and such beautiful weather here in NC!
We hope you went out and got a little fresh air and did something fun today!


It's time for Jo's Little Women Club to begin!! 

 We have a few changes to this year's's the scoop!!

The club will begin in March, 2016 and will run for 8 months...ending with the final club meeting in October.

There will be two meeting dates to choose from...
3rd Wednesday of each month from 11:00a - 12:30p
3rd Saturday of each month from 11:00a - 12:30p

 When you sign up, we ask that you pick the date that might most work for you...but you are certainly welcome to come to either club time each month!

There will be a $35 joining fee....this will give you a $35 credit towards purchasing anything "Jo" in the shop....fabric, books, etc.....during the duration of the club. Club dues each month will be $8...which pays for the pattern and our club leader's time.

This year, Jan Richards will be our new club leader...and she is soooo excited to be hosting this once again! Jan is a true fan of Jo's fabric and patterns and loves small projects. No doubt she will offer lots of great tips and demos along the way to help you with your projects!

 Sign up begins Tuesday, March 1st!!
