Go Away Irene!
That pretty much sums up what I think of Irene heading our way....however, it doesn't look like she's changing her travel plans....SO....
We will NOT be at the shop on Saturday...but if all goes well, we will be at the shop on Sunday under sunny blue skies! Sadly, I live close to I-95 and our wind and rain chances are much higher. If we have any kind of damage or power loss at home, we will most likely not be in the shop on Sunday as well...but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that won't be the case! We'll let you know!
All the books and patterns that we listed in the blog update below have now all come in! I'll be putting these over on our selling site later tonight under the "What's New" section, if you need to order and have shipped!
AND...I'll be posting a bunch of sale patterns and clearance items over on the selling blog as well...so be looking for that!
We received the newest Rug Hooking Magazine for the shop this week... this issue has some particularily good articles and free patterns...including stuffed hooked pumpkins, rug designs from antique coverlets and a very whimsical owl pattern...just in time for Halloween! $9.95 for the issue (WOW price $8.95)(Limited number available...)
Also...the Fall/Winter Edition of Early Homes arrived yesterday...as most of you know, this magazine is extremely hard to find but always worth a look! Good articles in this one...$4.99 per issue (WOW price $4.50)
Coming in next week...Little Gatherings prints by Primitive Gatherings for Moda fabrics, Prarie cloth in 3 colors, Primitive Muslin in 3 colors, plus more great handmade Halloween one-of-a-kinds! Stay tuned....
For those of you in the path of ol' Irene...stay dry, stay safe and we hope to see you soon!
