October 2019 Newsletter

 Welcome to fall, finally! Those here in the south are relieved by some cooler mornings, and less humidity. It is even difficult to enjoy football (or stitching!) when the humidity and temperatures are so oppressive! Now we can really begin to concentrate on Holiday sewing and gift making! Next month I will have several quick…

August 2019 Newsletter

 Yes, we still have 2 more months of summer, but for many the back to school parade has already begun. Perhaps for you this means more ‘you’ time and more time for sewing. Since we have plenty of sewing time for the holidays, I thought I would put a bee in your bonnet, to think…

November 2018 Newsletter

 FINALLY FALL HAS ARRIVED – It is the 21st of October as I write this and I was beginning to think Thanksgiving would better be served as a deck picnic!
