January 2014 Newsletter

 Now that we are able to go out in the cold again ....because of the heat will be all fired up to do a little shop hopping.   

Our annual winter shop hop starts Wednesday, and runs through Saturday.  It is now a three stop shop hop.  Queen Jeans (downtown Waukon) and Forest Mills hours are 10 to 6, while Country Stitchin's hours are 9 to 5.  There will be 20% off with a few exceptions at each shop.
It has been a slow last 6 weeks for new fabrics coming in but we have been busy doing some new samples.   
Shenandoah is our new fav.  Done  in our favorite Autumn, Kaufman mountain scene, and a eagle fabric.  It's  small 31" but the pattern goes up to a queen size.  

We are offering a two session class on the Spicy Spiral table runner.   At shop hop we will have a sign up sheet.   There will be two times on Saturday, Jan. 25 and Feb. 1, 10 a.m. or 1 p.m.  If it works out better for enough people we could do it on Friday, Jan. 24 and 31. Many of you have the ruler and pattern but haven't tried it.  Our guild had a retreat class on it that I took last fall and it's a lot of fun and really fun!   We do have rulers and patterns available also.  There will be samples on display.  It's addicting just like most intriguing patterns.
Carolyn took a picture of three robins at our bubbler before the COLD spell but we haven't seen them since.  We like to think they took a trip south!   It has been that slow that is our high point of 2014!     
Hope to see you all this week!    
Safe travels.  
Dianne and Carolyn
