New Block of the Month - Garden Gatherings

Here's a picture of Mom (Clarice) and me in front of the new block of the month we'll be starting SOON! It is called "Garden Gatherings" by Cozy Quarters and the wool applique is on fabric backgrounds. Wow! It is gorgeous! We've had so many comments on it already! We'll send out a newsletter to let you know when it is time to sign up, and will post info to the website if you can't make it in.

I just got an email today, telling us we are featured on the home page for Meet NWA -- check it out to see more of our new location, especially if you haven't been in yet.

We appreciate you --

Braided Rug Class with Helen Jeffrey is this Friday and Saturday, October 29 & 30!
Helen Jeffrey of Ozark, Missouri, will be here to share her love of wool and braided rugs!
Braiding is a wonderful way to finish and frame your hooked rugs, chair mats, table runners, bench mats, stair treads and gifts. In this retreat you will learn braiding, butting (joining the ends of the braids) and lacing (attaching braid). If you have preconceptions that this technique is complicated or requires too many tools and equipment, Helen’s technique is simple, inexpensive and it eliminates tools and equipment. The class cost includes the wool you need to make your own rug. There are a few places left, so call the shop to sign up now!

Socks Class with Danielle!

As the weather gets cooler, you know you will love wearing warm, wonderful, hand knit socks! Danielle will be teaching a three session class on knitting these. The dates are Saturdays, November 6, 13 and 20th from 9:30 to 11:30. All the information is in the class section of the website. Come for the class and then go to lunch for more fun!

Only Because of His Grace,
