October Newsletter


**Well Apparently my send later did not work, I apologize if I miss some of the outdated material and the delay.***

My Favorite Color is October ~ or at least that is what my new t-shirt says 

October is here and so is Fall it is one of my favorite times of the year.  I love the warm Indian summer days and cool evenings. The changing foliage and hay rides and fires on the brisk nights are amazing as well. And lets not forget pumpkins and Halloween. I think Halloween is my ultimate favorite holiday or at least a close tie to Christmas. It seems hard to believe it is that time already, I am not sure where the time went it does not seem like it should be this late in the year. 
The farmers are out heavy into harvest, we wish them all a safe and fruitful harvest season. Field as are beginning to empty. 

We just finished up the Crossing Borders Spring Fling  winners will be announced soon.

There is still plenty in our clearance fabric in the clearance area and we made a $5/ yard rack in the classroom.   Stop in and check them out or check out clearance online we will ship to you.

Don't Forget October is Breast cancer awareness month and in honor of that Moda is doing a sew along.  One new block each day starting tomorrow.  Check us out on facebook to get more information.  Join our facebook group where I will post the patterns daily and an instructional video.  The sew along is free to partake.  We do have a few kits if you desire or it can be a scrappy quilt from your stash.

Last item for the month it happens to be my birthday month so we are doing a Bowling Pin Sale.  The actual day is the during the hop so I picked another day to stay within the rules of the hop.  Come to the store this Friday and Saturday October 16th and 17th and receive 20 - 25 - 30 % off all regular priced items **some exclusions do apply.  Once you are ready to check out you will draw a bowling pin for a discount that discount will be applied to your order.  This is an in store sale only sorry..

The Holiday Hop has been officially announced as well so plan SAVE THE DATE
