My desktop finally went out about a week and a half ago. The connection to monitor went out. It ran on Windows Vista so I knew it was a matter of time! At least I was able to get the data transferred to a new computer. I miss all the saved passwords on my accounts, especially the ones that I didn't bother to write down! I still to get the store e-mail up and going and it may not get for a couple weeks but we do have email on another computer so we aren't totally in the dark. If you try to send a message we may miss it though so it might be best to call if you have a question. We have a Maui trip planned for next week! we are leaving tomorrw!! I'm sure we will find that one week is not long enough but I'll take it anyway. It is a business meeting for my husband and he needed me to go with him ;) I hope you are staying warm enough and are working on all kinds of projects during this cold spell! Spring is around the corner!! Happy Quilting, Pam
Thursday the 14th
We would like to invite you for tea, coffee, treats and a special project on Valentines Day! You can make a cute heart pincushion here in a couple of hours. The kit for the pincushion is $8.25 and we will provide thread and a bit of stuffing. You can also purchase ground walnut shells if you prefer.
Also, for a bit of extra love, pick out a Valentine at the counter to see what discount you can have off of your sale. Our Valentines will have anywhere from 15% - 30% of that is good on regular priced fabric, books, notions, and patterns!
