And here we are again! We find ourselves in the same place as last month . . . hopefully, remaining healthy and safe! Some of you have expressed that it is not so bad living the quieter life and getting lots and lots of older projects completed. Others have mentioned that daily life is getting a little redundant and would enjoy establishing a social life once again. Whatever your preference, we are still in it . . . and, to that point, our shop will not be opening anytime soon. We want to make certain that when we do finally open our doors, everyone will be as safe as humanly possible. Including all of you and our entire staff. Large gatherings will not be taking place and so, once again, our June Patchwork Party will meet virtually. I hope you understand why we are taking every precaution.
Our “Saturday Smile” programs continue to be well-received and so, if you have not watched any of these to date, please know that you can watch each and every episode (although I don’t recommend binge watching . . . it’s a little too much of Joan . . . ha, ha, ha!).
Update . . . If you have placed an order for the new Fabric Café book “Quick As A Wink”, it will, hopefully, become available in June/July.
Classes. . . If you have registered for a class that was taking place in April/May/June, we will begin to address each individual class roster via email with an update on your class information. Again, we do believe that at some point in the future we will begin to hold hands-on classes and lecture/demo classes in the shop. We sincerely appreciate everyone’s patience with this. Just a little sidebar . . . Lisa and Alice are both working at home and preparing new class ideas for you!
Our “Essence of Tradition” Block of the Month program was scheduled to begin in June and the “Embroidery Retreat” was set for August. We absolutely wish to present these beginning to end; however, it is not possible at this point in time. Therefore, if you have been thinking about these programs, registration is still available.
