Shop Hop News:
We're very excited to be joining 7 other Quilt Shops for the New York Quilters Quest Shop Hop this spring.  The theme is "Super Stitcher"  Sign ups begin March 21.  The Shop Hop will run from May 31- June 10.  Lots of time to visit all the shops.

Of course, we have the MA Shop Hop this fall. It will be the same 5 shops as last year and our theme is 'Whymsical Garden".  Just think of all the fun things you can find in a "whymsical" garden.  Hopefully the snow will melt soon and we'll see.  The dates of the MA Shop Hop are October 19-21.

There is more information on both Shop Hops on our WEBSITE and we'll keep everyone updated as the dates get closer.

 Quilt Shows:
  In April we will be Vendoring at two Quilt Shows.

  The weekend of April 14-15 we will be in Springfield MA for the "Pieces of Time Quilt Show" presented by the Pioneer Valley Quilters Guild.  This year it will at the Elks Lodge #61, 440 Tiffany St. Springfield, MA.

  The weekend of April 28-29 we will be in Clifton Park NY for the Empire Quiltfest which is presented by multiple Quilt Guilds in the area.  It will be at Schenendehowa High School East in Clifton Park, NY.

Final words:
  It's been a long winter and we are anxiously awaiting Spring.  We're receiving lots of new fabric & collections on a regular basis so stop in and check things out.  THINK SPRING!!

Don’t forget…it’s “MY HAPPY PLACE”.   Hope it’s yours too!



And it’s time to:




Have a great day!!
