Close Out Sale July 16-20, 2019

Hi Everyone!
Hope this note finds all of you in good health and enjoying your summer. Again, this year is just flying by, and our newest family member just turned two and our youngest grandson is a senior in high school.
You all will enjoy this – I made our great-granddaughter an Easter dress this year and it had a zipper in the back. I have been sewing since I was 14 and it took me three tries to get it right. As you all know, quilter’s just don’t do buttons or zippers, but I really did enjoy making it for her. It had lace on the bottom and a big bow in the back and she looked like a big girl all dressed up.
Well, for the last six months, Bob and I have been trying to find someone to reopen the store. We really thought we had someone, but he has changed his mind, so we really need to go a different direction. We have been cleaning out cabinets, drawers, and closets and in 27 years in business, you have things you just forgot were there.
I found another box of yard cuts of fabric that are all Hoffman, P&B fabrics, and a few RJR fabrics. We found kits from conventions that we have attended over the years with Husqvarna-Viking and many, many more things. So we have decided that the best thing to do is invite you all to come and take a look:
