Poker Run Week

We are home from Bartlesville and we had a really great show. The quilts were gorgeous and the quilters were friendly and very interested in the "Bohin" marking pencil, the new suction cup handle for smaller rulers and the four-sided placemats. We ran out of all of them. I'm reordering today, so they should be back in stock for the weekend.

This week is the Poker Run, so we will expect to see a lot of you in the shop, picking up your playing card.

We will leave Sunday for Knoxville. If the traveling goes well, we might even have some time off for sightseeing, since I've never been to that particular area. Let me know if there is something we need to make a point of seeing.

I got home just minutes before our oldest son and his family arrived home from Branson. We had to hear all of their stories, the adult version, the 6-year old version, the 4-year old version and the 2-year olds version. Grandchildren are great!

Well, I'm off to work to get the ordering done. See you soon!

Heading to Bartlesville, Oklahoma

We are leaving Thursday to vend at the quilt show in Bartlesville (actually Dewey Fairgrounds). The show is Friday and Saturday from 10-5. Come in our booth and tell us you read about it on the blog and we will give you a free gift.

Our newest gadget is the thimble from Clover. It is soft-sided, so it is comfortable, but it will also be helpful for pulling the needle through (like a needle grabber). Everyone has fallen in love with it the moment they try it on.

July 11-18 is our Poker Run. Visit all six shops and pick up a playing card. Make your best hand and the winner gets a gift certificate from each of the six shops. No passports, no kits, no blocks, just good fun.

July 22-25 we will be in Knoxville, TN at the AQS show. We will also have free gifts there if you mention the blog. Barb and Norma will be attending with me and Norma will be demonstrating all the cool gadgets we have.

Stay cool and come see us.
