You know how you have those moments when you feel like you've forgotten something but you just can't think of what it is? I've been having that feeling for the last week or so. Finally I realized what I was forgetting about! It was the blog!!
September has been super busy. But really, most Septembers are. We are all getting back into our non-summer rhythms. The weather has taken a sudden turn to sewing weather (check out the snow we just received!) and the shop has been bustling and busy.
Firstly, our classes have taken off. If you're thinking about taking a class I would encourage you to register as they are filling steadily.

Taran does such a lovely job with garment sewing (you can follow her on IG too @tanitisis):

Another reason I'd forgotten about the blog was because of the wonderful invitation we received to attend the annual quilting retreat in Prince Albert. Such a kind and congenial group of ladies.

We really enjoyed ourselves!

It's cool in the house and feels a little cooler with the snow outside. Enjoy the rest of September - the weather is due to improve. Happy stitching!
