First off…let’s get business out of the way. If you are interested in attending the fall retreat…i need to know asap (even if you aren’t paying until later on in October). I’m trying to set up meals and get organized (i know this sounds strange coming from me, but it doesn’t hurt to try). call or email me with your dates.
Second off…Information about the Wild West Shop Hop click here! It is a little over a month away…I can hardly wait. This Shop Hop has been around for years…(something like 13 or 14) Mom and I used to do this shop hop when i was in high school, and i graduated in 99! This Hop is tons of fun…visit Sweetwater, Aunt Annie’s, Flying Goose, Cottage Quilts, Quilted Treasures of Rogers, and Gruber’s as you make your way through Central MN. 3 Top 10 Shops in 1 hop (Sweetwater, Quilted Treasures of Rogers, and Gruber’s). Pick up your Posse Pass when you stop in on November 11th!
Third off…(I know this is long winded i promise this is the last one) Ladies Night Out! It’s that time of year again…Join us Friday, October 29th as we open our doors from 7pm-11pm…over 10 shops to stroll through…remember to come in costume to be eligible for prizes. Stop by our “Tea Party” and visit with Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen, and the White Queen! We’ll have plenty of candy to soothe your sweet tooth and maybe even a little tea…We’ll be running sales throughout the night on everything from kits, to bundles…you may think we’ve gone MAD!
