Welcome to July!
Well after a crazy May and June the Summer weather is here and warming up. We hope everyone is taking some time from there machine to get out and enjoy the sun, do some gardening or spend time with family. If you’re like Casey and grumbling about the heat while installing AC’s in every window then don’t forget to stay cool. With this first weekend being the 4th of July just a reminder we are closed Saturday the 2nd thru Tuesday the 5th and will reopen the 6th. Stay safe and go to some public Fireworks, or be cautious with your own.
We will be running a Christmas in July sale and events to help get you started on Christmas projects (with the way shipping is right now you probably need to ship everything in September just to hope it gets there by Christmas). We won’t have the fake snow but we have snow fabric, sales and some fun holiday projects we will be doing in short one day classes.
