I just realized I has not been updating everyone on everything we have been up to! since October! This is why I do not have an official blogspace!
We survived our first holiday season! And actually made some money, which is very cool since we have only been open since September. Diane had several custom orders as well as pretty much running our retail side. She made a SunBonnet Sue baby quilt, and for Cafe 237 in Hendersonville (a very good place to eat) Diane made holiday aprons for everyone. Also repaired and finished a couple of baby quilts for people. Needless to say, Diane was a bit busy.
I managed to get all my custom orders completed by Xmas. I cannot share pictures of them because they were all gifts and have to make sure everyone got them before sharing.
So now it is January! we got snow today so it was a brisk walk with Bonnie B on the greenway before we opened up.
Richard is still coming up on his Saturday to sharpen blades and we are still trying to get the word out for him. If you are not able to come on that day, you can drop off your items during the month and he will call you when he has them sharpened. He does scissors, knives, and tools. Prices vary depending on the job.
We had our first quilting class! Sharon Voorheis is certified to teach with Kay Wood rulers and is having a series of classes every 3rd Saturday. This past Saturday a mother and daughter took her first class and did a great job! I actually learned a couple of things just by eavesdropping (don’t tell Sharon).
With each class, you bring your machine and necesseties; you receive the ruler needed and fabric. You will have a finished block after 4 hrs. The cost is $80 and the next class is February 16.
