Well January was gone in a flash! We've been hopping here with classes and new products arriving all the time. Our January retreat was a complete blast and we need to do it again. Thank you ladies for the laughter- it does a body good!
We received news recently about the Bobcat Paw fabric from Hoffman. It arrived at the Hoffman warehouse and was not approved to be sent out to customers. The colors had bled so we are now awaiting the new shipment which is being remade. I hope to be calling people real soon that the fabric is here- just hold on a little longer! Here's an idea of the size of the paws and the color options.
