Sew-into-Quilts & Sew-Fix-it Newsletter #8 Sept. 6, 2016
Happy Fall Y’all! Yes, I know that technically it isn’t fall yet, but with such a wonderfully bountiful harvest, the trees changing colors and cooler weather it sure feels like it. Not to mention all the kids back in school.
Please excuse this being so late. I got up the morning of August 30st to finish the newsletter and to my horror my computer came up with nothing. I mean abuslotly nothing!!! Jim spent 4 days trying to retrieve anything, but it just wouldn’t play. So, we went in search of a new one, grrrrr. We got it and am just now getting it figured out. Thanks for your understanding.
We have had 3 new collections as well as dozens of new blenders coming in there is so many to check out in the store.
