March Newsletter

Hi, quilters!
Sorry, I'm running late with the newsletter. I've been a lot of time outside playing.
Today, Mom said I had to get my tail in gear and get the newsletter out today. No playing until I get my work done.
The weather has been great, for the most part. I've already gotten into my pool to play in the water. It was really, really cold but it was fun!
Yesterday, there was a thin layer of ice on the pool. I jumped in and walked around the pool until I had broken up all the ice. That was fun.
Moda was here yesterday. I peed on her nose. I was minding my own business peeing on a plant and she stuck her nose in my stream and got all wet.  She's cute and fun to have around but she's a little short on brains sometimes.
Here's the news around the Shop.
We have our Winners of the Fabric Challenge for you.

Congratulations to all of our Winners!
We would like to thank everyone for participating in our Fabric Challenge and for voting for our Challengers!
Winners, your prizes are here for pick up when you come in next time.

This week and next week, our Northcott Tiles available in 5 colorways are 30% Off. Tiles are 10"x 10" precut squares.

Don't forget! This Saturday (March 4th) is our Free Demo and Pattern Day! I will be on hand for scratches and to keep you company. You must attend the class to get your free pattern. Supplies are limited and we usually have a big class.

Before I forget, I have a double ear infection. If you could avoid scratching my ears for the next couple of weeks when you come in, I'd appreciate it. A head or belly scratch will do just fine for a little while. Thank you!

We have added the Necchi EX60 to our sewing machine line up. This is one step above the EX30. It has all the same great features but with twice as many stitches. Mom has been making room to get it set up. She should have it set up by Saturday.  All of our Necchi sewing machine have a one year of free cleaning with purchase.
Mom will also be having a class later in the Spring on how to clean your sewing machine. If you purchase a Necchi sewing machine the class will be free.
Mom will be going down to the Necchi repair school at the end of April. She will be able to repairs on Necchi and Janome sewing machines.

Jack the Sewing Machine Doctor will no longer be coming down to our Shop. 
However, Mom can clean most sewing machines.
It is $49.95 plus taxes.

It's time for me to go check out the backyard.
I hope to see you in the shop soon.
I just love to greet all of our customers and get lots of attention.
Moda is coming more often to the Shop, too.
I'm training her to be a good greeter, too.

Keeping you in Stitches,
 Obi the Wonder Dog, Maryanne, Mary Lou and Moda
