April News from The Cupboard
Wow were we all rockin and rollin last Saturday night! I live about a mile from the Brea Mall so we felt it pretty hard. Only one little thing broken, nothing expensive but all my drawers in the kitchen opened, no cupboards, just drawers. But the pool was sloshing pretty good too. Had water all over the patio. In my daughter's room, a lot of her shoe boxes fell out. Poor Buzz, he freaked and headed for his bed in our room where he laid and shook a little. Had to reassure him that the world wasn't coming to an end. Here at the shop, no damage and nothing fell. Annie probably wasn't even concerned. Felt a few of the after shocks but was glad it has gone past the time for the BIG one to follow!
Our Open House was a rousing success! If you missed it, come on into the shop and see the new Elna sewing machines and Riccar (pronounced Re - Car) vacuum cleaners. The Singer Sewing Center is now servicing vacuum cleaners as well as selling the Riccars (an American made product!) And congratulations to Sandy Sutton, who was the lucky winner of the shop $25 gift certificate.
The Civil War and Batik Blocks of the Month for this month are ready. There are a few Civil War blocks left from last month so if you are missing Block 2, it is here for you.
Don't forget the Bunny Hop is this week-end. Friday and Saturday, April 4th and 5th, the hours are 10 AM - 6 PM and on Sunday, April 6th, 12 Noon to 4 PM.
