Try to Remember the First of Octember was a Theo LeSieg book we used to read to our kids when they were small. It's a fun story about an imaginary month full of promises of fun. The name has always stuck with me. This fall is speeding by and with September finished and October under way the name "Octember" seems to fit.
Our first Mini-Retreat was a huge success. We had a full classroom with many wonderful projects being sewn up. Here is a (not the best) photo of Bonnie and Betty's Canada 150 top. The colours were so rich and beautiful. And it was neat that it wasn't the standard red and white quilts we've been seeing.
We will be having more Mini-Retreats after Christmas. With the quilt show in October, our big Shekinah retreat in November (which is now full) and Christmas in December we couldn't squeeze in another Mini-Retreat. We do have our Quilt 'til you Wilts though so we'd love to have you join us for those.
And speaking of October, our latest pincushion of the month is now available. A super cute little pumpkin!
As ever we are always getting new fabrics and patterns in the shop. Feel free to stop by and check things out. We're always happy to see you.
