Happy January and a Happy New Year to everyone! It should be out with the old and in with the new right?? Our furnace at the store knew that... and obliged! After 3 feet of snow in 2 days, a gazillion power outages, and a cold New Year weekend it decided not to work. It was determined that it would the most cost effective to just replace it. So for two days last week I bundled up and came in while a new furnace was installed. All is warm again! The girls have been taking a fabric inventory and are checking every bolt of fabric in the store. Sarina has been finding older bolts and we will be adding to the sale corner in the not to distant future! I have been seeing fabric reps and have been ordering fabric for the spring. Out with the old and in with the new! Fabric is such a better application for that expression than furnaces! For that
matter so are shoes, clothes, bags, sewing machine needles, insert __________, any thing but furnaces!
