Finish or Forget it!



Do you a stack of UFO's nagging you? bogging you down so you can't figure out where to start? Do you have that project that you can't even think of finishing but don't want to part with it? Do you have that UFO that you started but can't seem to finish and need permission to let it go?

THEN..

This event is for you..


Saturday, January 28 is National Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day. We invite you to join us as we present Finish or Forget It ... breaking up your stash!

With so many UFO's floating around in our stash we felt now was the perfect time to gather them up, bring 6 to 12 into the shop, and let us help you sort our what needs to be Finished or what needs to be Forgotten. You'll leave this fun event with 6 projects that you'll have 6 months to complete. The rest of your projects can be passed down to new quilters in our pay it forward movement for 2017. There will be support throughout the next six months with emails, a private Facebook group and a wrap-up party for everyone to show off their finish projects. This free event starts at 10am and runs till 2, while it is free you do need to register because we need to prepare your goodie bags and save you a seat. Stop in or call 540-341-8890 to reserve your spot.

So you don't have any projects that you are ready to give up on but need a kick in the pants to get them done....again...this event is for you.

So you don't have a pile of UFO's but need a kick in the pants to get your projects done...again..this event is for you.

We want 2017 to be the year that you FINISH IT! So join us this Saturday, January 28, for some fun and encouragement.

Give us a call to save you a seat for this FREE event.

Until Next Time

Be Kind

A Personal Post

Please indulge me as I write this very personal post....

You see, Jimmy had always been a part of my life, at 57 I didn't know a life without having this older brother that I looked up to. We had lost our other brother, Karl, in 1984 in a car accident. When there were three, we were down to two...now I am just one.



I found this picture of the three of us...1963/64...the cat, Waldo, is being held by Karl and if you'll notice Jimmy is in a cast..I'm sure there is a story behind that and my mother will be able to fill that in.


Let me tell you about Jimmy that his obituary didn't.

First of all..he was Jimmy..as he got older I'm sure he tried to go by Jim, but that was always dad, he was Jimmy. As…
