Hello from Pittsburg, Kansas
Vicky Lawrence and I came down Friday afternoon to set up our booth at Little Balkan Days. Yesterday was a great day, visiting with old friends and demonstrating the new Fabric Greeting Cards that we brought home from Nashville. They are lots of fun and take very little time. Before you get one done, you are already thinking of how to do something different on the next one.

Today we will be packing up and driving home. This week we will be getting ready for our big first Saturday. All the $5 quiltmakers will be bringing their finished blocks and receiving their free block for September. Our teachers are also getting their samples ready for display so you can decide what classes to take for the fall. If you enroll on Saturday or before, you will receive $2.50 off of each enrollment. Hope everyone takes advantage of this opportunity.

Make plans now to attend the BBBETO "Deck the Walls" shop hop, the weekend before Thanksgiving. It's an opportunity to visit 6 shops without too many miles in between shops.

See you in Overbrook!

Well, the show is over. Our trailer is loaded and we are in the motel watching the Olympics and thinking we better go to sleep. We are bringing home some new ideas that we found here at the show.

On Saturday, September 6, we will have a special event at the store. All our teachers will be there showing samples of what you can expect to make during our fall classes. If you enroll that day, you will receive $2.50 off your class fee.

We will also have a Make It Take It, where you will spend the day at the shop, rotating around the room and taking four finished projects home with you. All of these projects will be perfect for quick Christmas gifts.

Keep in touch!

Hello from Nashville. The show opened today and we met a lot of new friends. The cell phone iron-on panels are very popular, along with the new marking pencils from Bohn. The pencil lead has some wax in it for easy gliding and erases easily by rubbing with another piece of fabric. Barb, Norma and Jeanette are traveling with me and we enjoyed an evening at the Grand Ole Opry last night. It was a great experience.

We will arrive home late Sunday night and Vicky and I will leave Friday for Pittsburg, Kansas. Their annual Little Balkans Days always has a great quilt show to go see. Stay tuned for a new class schedule.

We have been working on the class schedule here in the motel. Nashville has been a lot of fun and we haven't been out too far from the hotel yet. We will be traveling to Springfield, Missouri, Des Moines and Houston later this fall, so come see us

Good Night from Nashville
