It feels as though I haven't done a blog post in forever. Oh wait, I haven't. We have had an incredibly busy summer. Some great little weekend trips golfing, and going to country music concerts. This is the first summer that Mark hasn't been on call in 30 years so we tried to take advantage of our weekends. Quite a few of them involved work but the store and teaching is also a lot of fun. Mark and I are leaving next Sunday the 15th of August to learn more about the Handi Quilter machines in Salt Lake. He will learn the mechanical aspects and I will learn more about selling and operating. I have been working on the Batik of the Month Quilt at home on my Fusion. The quilt is absolutely gorgeous, I think you will really like it. I heard from Island Batiks about our fabric for the quilt. It is on the boat and due to arrive in the states around the end of August. If you have signed up for the club you will receive an email from us to pick up your kits.
We have a couple big events coming up in Paradise. Next weekend is the Ridge Quilters Quilt Show, August 14 from 10 - 5, and August 15 from 10 - 4. The show is located at the Paradise Intermediate School. We will be open both days. Debbie and I will both have a special for Quilt Show attendees.
Party on the River is right around the corner. The shop hop is Sept. 9 - 11. Come on by for more information. Below are some pictures regarding the hop. The quilt will be given away as one of our prizes. The chair filled with goodies is one of the grand prizes which will include a $100 shopping spree. Every store will have a party theme, ours is a tailgate party. Come join the fun!
Today we received a new line of fabric from Moda, Evening Mist. It is really gorgeous. They are great with Diawabo's. Come by and check out the gorgeous colors.
