July News from the Cupboard
Here it is July 1st already. Well they do say times flies when you are having fun! And we did have a great time during the 17th Annual Quilt Run. We were tailgating for the Angels, Dodgers, and Ducks. Did you miss the beer pong contest? I hope everyone had as good a time on the RUN as we did greeting all of you. And Thank you to all of you for your kind words about how much you liked the shop. I have tried to make it a place where everyone feels at home and welcomed. We are busily ordering more fabric, books, patterns, etc to fill up the space. It just takes a little time. Come to see us anytime!
The big winners were as follows:
"Road to California" 4 day experience went to Tom Preston (guess his wife is really happy!)
"Empty Spools Seminars" experience went to Roberta Knapp.
Congratulations to both of our big winners.
My shop basket went to Marjorie Densmore, who, by the way, has already picked up her prize!
