Classes, Reindeer Dash, Holiday Workshop, & more...

Fall has arrived! Pamala is teaching the Stella Pumpkin doll this Saturday, October 1st. What a perfect way to start the month off! We have one or two spaces left. Call the shop to sign up.

Join us for our HOLIDAY WORKSHOP! November 7th-November 12th. Come in during that week and work on fun gifts for your friends and family. We will have lots of kits to choose from, in ALL price ranges. We will also be offering two evenings during that week to come in and work. The cost is $10.00, plus the purchase of a kit. The price covers the whole week, so you can come in as many times as you like during the week. Some of the samples will be on view during the Reindeer Dash!

The Reindeer Dash kicks off on Thursday, October 6th! Visit all the participating stores and receive a free fat quarter from each, plus a free pattern. This year we are handing out fat quarters from the  Christmas line by Maywood Studios named Fresh Fallen Snow. Lots of cute prints! You have from Thursday the 6th through Saturday the 8th, to visit all stores.

October is breast cancer awareness month! We are donating a quilt to the Brighton Collectibles store in the Tyler Mall, Riverside, CA. This is our 3rd year and it has been a huge success. Brighton will raffle off the quilt, and all proceeds will benefit The Pink Ribbon Place, an agency that provides education, financial aid for treatments, support and more, to women in the Inland Empire, who are in need. The event begins at 6PM, September 30th at the Brighton store. Stop by and purchase a ticket. See our blog tomorrow for a preview picture of the quilt.

Stop by the store to see the samples and get more information on the following classes:

This cute apron taught by Pamala would make a great gift!

This purse is an original design by Pat Lui. The outside (flower portion) is reversible and removable, so you can change the outside design to match your outfit or mood.

We still have a few spaces available in Aunt Grace's Garden Party.

Raining Cats & Dogs - Afraid of applique? This sample was done all by machine. Erin Dillon will be offering workshops to help you complete the entire quilt using your sewing machine. Call or come in for details.

God is my strength and courage.

Courage is the hallmark of a strong and valiant spirit. It distinguishes men and women in every field of human endeavor. It may glow like a steady flame day in and day out, recognized by everyone, or it may suddenly shine brightly like a brilliant star that had previously gone unnoticed.

Firefighters, police and other public servants show great courage every day. They may feel fearful at times, but they overcome their fear and act with bravery and assurance when others are in need.

I give thanks for these heroes, past and present, who courageously performed their duties at great personal risk. I know that God is with them, now and always, just as God is with me and within me.

Then an angel from heaven appeared to him and gave him strength.--Luke 22:43 (
