New Pictures!

Hello!  I took a few new pictures of the shop yesterday, and also a picture of our April Small Quilts club quilt!  We have our annual UFO Quilt Retreat this coming weekend at North Bend State Park in WV! Yay! I'm so excited to be with all the fun ladies from our shop that are coming and also with the fun ladies in my family that will be there! I have a few projects packed and ready to work on, but not my clothes. We have to have our priorities, you know! I'll get to that tomorrow or the next day. 
     Hope you like the pictures! Have a great day!

April Small Quilt Club, and more show pictures!

Hello! Sorry it has been a while since I have posted. It has been a bit crazy at the shop with so much going on with the magazine, and the quilt shop side a little short handed! My husband helped me move lots of cabinets and furniture around in the shop, and we hung different quilts up and took older ones down. It looks really pretty, and now that I have teased you, I hate to tell you that I forgot to take pictures! LOL! I'll try to get some tomorrow to post on here! What I do have to show you is a few shots of my Small Quilts Club we had today, and  of an old Penny Rug a customer brought in today to show us! It had the tongues all sewn down onto a piece of ticking, and then backed with a floral print. There is what looks to be punch needle in the center part! It is in wonderful shape!  Also I have a few more pictures of Spring Festival in Cincinnati!   Enjoy, and tomorrow I will take pictures of the shop and of the little quilt we made in class today. I can't believe I forgot to take that picture as well! LOL! I was very distracted today! I hope you all have a Happy Easter weekend!

The Truck of Magaines arrived!!!!!

We thought they would be here yesterday, so I was a little sad by the end of the day after all that excitement! LOL! Today, they came! So the pictures are of Dad opening our loading dock door, ( this building had many owners and  uses before we got it, who knew we would need that loading dock some day?) The truck pulling up and Gretchen supervising where to put the boxes.  Next are pictures of my son Kris, Gretch, Dad and the truck driver. Thanks Kris for getting out of bed to help unload! LOL! Teenagers! Then we have the Homespn Media Office, of shipping and packing! This room used to be a classroom and storage for kit making. The helpers are Dad, Mom, Trevor,(Gretchen's son) and his girlfriend Alicia!(thanks kids for coming after school to help!) Then Gretchen at the desk printing labels for all the boxes!  Today the wholesale orders were going out, and we'll do more of those and then regular customers tomorrow! So much work, but also so much fun!  We heard some shops and customers that ordered before March 23rd started getting their magazines today! Yay! Wow, I think that was a bunch of run on sentences, hope my english teacher from long ago isn't reading!

Let us know when you get your magazine!!!
