Off to Pine for our Quilt Retreat

It's been so long since I have blogged. It's been pretty hectic at the shop. We have gotten the expansion completed,  the notion & pattern walls are organized. The large new classroom has been being put to good use. Our UPS & FED EX drivers have been dropping off LOTS & LOTS of new fabric. Batiks, Florals, & it's definitely looking like Fall & Christmas with shelves full of these beautiful fabrics. There are so many that I can't post pictures of all of them. Guess you'll just have to come in & see for yourself.
With the temperature outside hitting those triple digits it is the perfect time to be stitchin'.
Speaking of stitchin' the Staff & are are headed up to Breath of Life Retreat Center in Pine for our annual Staff Retreat. This is such a special time, we get to just have all kinds of fun doing what we love; Quilting. I plan on working on a couple shop samples, one of which is the quilt for this years Shop Hop.
The shop will be CLOSED Friday June 28th & Saturday June 29th so all the staff members are able to attend.
We will be back in the shop Monday morning at 9:30am.
Monday we are hosting a community event for constructing Arctic Scarves for our women veterans.These are what most of you know as Cool Ties, these will help the ladies stay a bit cooler in our high temperatures. The scarf kits will be provided so come on in, sew a few scarves, help a veteran & stay cool in our air conditioned classroom. The event is going to be all day Monday July 1, 2013 from 10am - 4pm. Show your support for these veterans.

Closed in Observance of Independence Day
The shop will be CLOSED Thursday July 4th

Happy Quilting
Kathy & A Quilter's Oasis Staff
