Life happens

Sadly, the shoppe will be closed Wednesday April 28th. A sweet aunt has passed away and we are going to pay our respects.  It is a return trip to my father's origins in Pennsylvania, and the family home built by my grandfather.  St. Clair, Pa, neighbor of Pottsville Pa, home of Yuengling Brewary, oldest US beer!!

The shoppe will be open on Thursday. And life continues....

Eternal Rest for you Aunt Minnie [Mary]
Prayers of love and support  for you Uncle Vic
I will always remember your love of dancing
Fun times remembered, love of family always.

Going stitching...yahoo

It's traveling time for me! Saturday and Sunday I will be attending classes in Delaware. Don't panic, my daughter and grandson are opening the shoppe. A good thing. 

The Diamond State Stitchers chapter of SAGA is hosting Cindy Foose, a wonderful fun teacher from Mississippi.  AND I am going to have two days of fun. Just as a sidebar, Cindy is the mother of the wonderful Cook Martha Foose.  I need to pick up that cookbook...

Anyway, I am off to learn about hems and finishing techniques; Smocking for Texture and more.  The better part is that I will be hanging with my pal Melynda. A fun time will be had by all!!

BY the By...check out the two new pages added to the blog...this is way too much fun.  Have to thank Martha B. her chapter blog showed more pages...now I found out how!! This may be my main site over the webpage...we shall see...

You can help

Okay, so I don't get much done these days as far as blogging is concerned.  But today I have to post this question to anyone coming by to visit....Please let me know which say three of these knits you would like to see in stock at the shoppe.  Michael Miller is previewing these and little birdies are talking to me how nice they are.  Which would you like. [besides basic white, cream etc...some solids will be standard]....

There are more I am sure, but we can start here.  100% cotton interlock, according to one review, less edge roll than jersey knit.  I see many of them in 'big' girl things..including leggings...can't wait to see what people choose.  I have too many favorites to say...let's see how many people agree with me!!

Think start of school...they may not arrive until mid summer...just delivery issues...let's get New Jersey  sewing with knits!!  Comment please!!
