| September 2015
|Fall is in the air, so much better than the smoke we all have been dealing with! It is raining (even a skiff of snow on the mountain peak this morning) and what a welcome relief from the hot dry summer! With September, we get to leave the hectic summer days behind and get back to a more normal pace and schedule. I hope to schedule in some much needed sewing time to get caught up on some store projects. Labor Day is summer's last hurrah so I hope you get to enjoy your 3 day weekend! Happy Quilting! Pam
Just a note- We are open all weekend but our Sunday hours will be changing back to Noon-4:00 starting next Sunday.
