April Showers bring May Flowers, so lets see how rainy our April will be this month. If it is too rainy, then that means we need to be working inside on our quilts and not be outside in the rain. So the rain sometimes makes us blue, but it is also the color of water, so lets have a “Blue” sale this month! Any fabric with BLUE as the primary color will be 10% off. And if you need a little boost to get ready for Spring then take a class to help get you into the swing of things. So visit us during one of our “Open Sews”. For the month of April it’s the 14th and 28th. Full day sessions (10-4) are $20.00 and 1/2 day are $10.00. Come join us, we have lots of fun!
