Hop over to Sew-A-Lot

Can you believe that the holiday weekend is already over? It's crazy! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. It was very beautiful where I was. Now we are back at the store and getting ready for the Tri State Shop Hop. The shop hop starts Saturday September 11th and the Centerville location is one of the participants. I've been super busy quilting the sample quilts and the shop hop quilt. I hope you all enjoy them.

Here at the Lexington location we will be having a purse class Friday September 10 from 6pm-9pm. And Sue will be teaching a cutwork towel project on Saturday September 11. There is still room in both classes if you are interested. (Not much in Saturdays class though!)

The newsletter has been put in the mail! So if you are looking for a good class to take over the next few months and are in the Lexington, KY or Centerville, OH area; stop by and see if there's something that strikes your fancy.
