The Yours to Discover Shop Hop ( is in full swing with many ‘hoppers’ enjoying the ten shops and sites along the way. There is still time to join in as the event goes to the end of July.

Don’t forget 20% OFF Christmas fabric, books and patterns during July.

The fall class schedule is now being planned. Your input is needed as to type and timing of
our classes. Machine quilting, Celtic table topper and a pinwheel baby quilt are on the list so
far. Check out previous newsletters for other classes available. If there is a small group that
would like instruction on a pattern or technique, talk to us.

We’ve had a bit of a break from quilt shows for the summer, however there are more coming
to give us inspiration and enjoyment.
