We had a great time at the Quilting and Fiber Arts Marketplace (QFAM!)

A very talented lady took pictures of our booth for us:

Thanks so much! We made lots of new friends in Sanford.

The Quilting and Fiber Art Marketplace is in Sanford, NC this weekend and we will be there! (Don't worry--the shop here in Winston will be still be open!) Details and a list of vendors can be found here.

We are busy making lots of kits to sell this weekend, so come by the shop if you can't get to Sanford and see what we are taking with us! We'll have projects for knitting, smocking and quilting, plus what's left of our marked-down needlepoint canvases.

Hope to see you in Sanford or here at the shop this week!
