Happy 2010 to all our friends from Stitches...

With the arrival of the deep freeze weather, what better time to knit, crochet or sew!?!
Come visit us for an idea, a new yarn or a new bundle of fabrics to keep those fingers busy. If you are looking for a fun social project consider “Block of the Month” or “knitting around the fireplace” on Thursday evenings. We have many ready-made gifts in our Boutique if you just can’t seem to find the right gift in you own stash or boutique.
In January on Thursday afternoons from 2-4pm Stitches… is featuring a class on a Surprise Baby Sweater taught by Margo Rottinghaus. It starts on the 7th. Sign up now.
Block of the Month is a great way to make your first quilt or your 50th quilt. Last year we had participants of all skill levels and had a great time. This year’s quilt is called “Stars Around the Garden” and we’ll be making 2 blocks per month for 7 months, then a month for appliqué and a month for sashing and borders. Come in for a look at the fabrics and sign up for the first class on January 13th.
New fabric lines include a coffee line, Mother Goose, Civil War Homefront, and flannels called Two in the Bush.
Watch for our bargain bin – coming soon and special sale on Christmas fabrics.
