The Shop is Hoppin'!
The shop is hopping this week as the Florida Shop Hops Lighthouses and Bridges Hop started this past Saturday, July 16th. It's not too late to join in on the fun - check out their website for more details and to get your passport. Last day for the hop is Saturday, August 20th. Come see us!
I think I will be spending my morning tomorrow just taking pictures of all the new fun things we got in this week. We've kept UPS and FedEx busy, busy, busy!
The latest Missouri Star Block Magazine and a few templates are back in stock. Lynn made a sample of her Pennant Flags quilt and it is hanging in the shop.
Beautiful cream and metallic gold prints have arrived from Adorn It. Also in from Adorn It is their line of coloring books! We have Halloween and Faith on the floor now. Beautiful, thick card stock and some are sized for you to frame or use as gift tags!
If you missed it - we received 30 new bolts of Grunge along with the pre-cuts. Grunge works well with so many things! Did you know Grunge is printed on a Bella Solid? We just found out and it definitely explains why Grunge is so beautiful on the back too!
Bumble Berries from The Jungs at Moda with pre-cuts too! A soft print with a few bumble bee accents.
Last but certainly not least is the new Deco State Flowers and Garden Dots fabrics! We couldn't get all 50 states but do have Alaska, Michigan, North Carolina, Connecticut and Florida, of course! We have a few 10" charms that give you a square of each of the 50 states.

Just a friendly reminder to sign up at least a week in advance of class. We want to be able to give at least 5 days notice for teachers and students to plan accordingly. If you register and the class does not make, we will provide a full refund. You can view the class handout PDF or check out all the new classes through October here.
Til next time, keep those needles moving!
