The new house-The Gathering

It was official…May 28th..we closed on this house  that we will convert into a retreat and resting place for our customers.  We have figured it can accommodate 12 people in our first phase of remodeling.  If it is a success, we will do a phase 2 remodel to hold even more guests.  We are hoping to have it operational by September.  Remodeling has already been started. Walls are coming out, and we are busy making plans and shopping for paint, counters, lights, appliances and so on….I will post often for you to see it’s progress…we are very excited to be able to offer another service to our customers.

the walls are coming down...

It’s Block of Week time!

Today is the official start of our Summer Block of the week; Lisa’s Flower Garden.  You may come to the store and pick them up starting today, or if you are receiving it by mail…it will be shipped out this week…I say this because, some  of our background fabric was in an “accident”  the truck turned over in New York…you know I am telling the truth, because I couldn’t make that up….So the remainder of our background will not be here until Thursday and therefor will not be shipped out until then…so please be thankful no one, or no fabric  was injured in the “accident” and please accept our apology of this first shipment being a bit late.

Here is the list of threads I have used in the first four weeks of the block of the week… They are as follows: #12 Valdani Perle Cottons-P2, 0578, o78, h204, o86, 8123, o513, o540, o534, o154, P12, o519, o31, o178, o592,   Valdani 3-stranded floss-(3SF) You will use only one strand of this: o540, 841, o154, o78.  If you are in need of any or all of these threads please place your thread order as a separate order on our website.  I will place the next four weeks by the end of June.

Our “freebie” this week is a 4″ finished basket block.  I used the following threads is this block: #12 P12, H202 and 3SF-o78 and H202.
