Happy Memorial Day Weekend! As we ponder the sacrifices made for this day of rememberance, I hope you can also get in a little sewing and rest. I cannot believe our 5th month is almost over. We've got a short and sweet updated newsletter for you. We will be opened Sat, May 28th and closed for the long holiday on Sunday and Monday. I'll see you back at the store on Tuesday, May 31st.
Reminder: Don't Forget!! 5 CARD DRAW opportunity. For every class you sign up for between April and Dec of 2022, you will get to "draw" a card. We will keep it on file for you and you will collect a card for every class you take from us. If you've already taken a class or have signed up, you are automatically included in the 5 Card Draw game. The best part... there will be a drawing at the beginning of January for an amazing gift basket* full of goodies!! Gwen will be calling you next week to draw your cards.
