I'm working late from home tonight. It's been a busy week and I didn't have time to take some photos I wanted but I will let you know what's new at the Shop.
First, don't forget Saturday is Free Pattern and Demo Day. It's starts at 10am. For our new folks, it's a great way to learn a new pattern and do some socializing with other quilters. It's always a fun time and my favorite day of the month.
Secondly, we will be closing at 4:00pm on Monday, June 3rd to pay our respects to a very dear friend of the family who left us suddenly this past week. We will be closed Tuesday, June 4th to attend his funeral.
With that said onto some more happy news.... Our Christmas Fabric is starting to come in. We have Moda, Henry Glass and Hoffman on the floor. The Hoffman fabrics all have metallics in them. We will be having more arriving over the next few months. We also have a new Blender collection arriving in several shipments over the Summer and early Fall. QT Fabric, aka Quilting Treasures, Speckles Collection is starting to come in. We have received our first shipment. It's an exciting new blender line. We are also waiting for our new Patriotic fabric to start arriving.
We will be raising our Sewing Machine Cleaning Service to $58.95 as of June 1st.

Well, I think I've covered everything. If I've left anything out, I will send out an update after Tuesday.
We saw a fabric rep everyday this week and ordered a lot of new fabric that will be coming in through late Summer into January 2020. Moda stole one of our fabric rep's pen top and chewed it. As you probably saw on Facebook, I'm back to wearing socks again. Moda stole the top of the tape dispenser Mom was using and tried to steal the tape dispenser, too, while Mom was taping my socks on today. Ya gotta watch that little fur ball. She will steal anything at her level, which is basically the floor.
Keep dry,everyone! It's raining here at home...again. I sure wish it would stop so Mom can get the lawn mowed. It's starting to tickle my belly in places.
