The October Sew News is posted and I have added to it just this morning. Please take time to visit the Sew News periodically during the month. Many shops have last minute sales and updates throughout the month. I try to keep the information going as I get it. Unlimited Embroidery is having a sale as well. Call Lynda Richardson at 936-9678 for information. And during the month, if you have Sew News information that is current, please let me know. I haven’t done much with the New Sewing Corner in Miramar Beach. They are pretty active at posting on their facebook page. They are TJ Kabrics as well as The Sewing Corner. Carol
Sorry about not getting my news letter out this month I have been out of town and then trying to play catch up.
At our Thursday night meeting Addie will do our program.
And of course we will have block swap. Please bring in your blocks that you are making for Lyndell.
Remember that challenge projects are due in November. Hope you all have yours almost done
Don’t forget the Pack and Sew Tote workshop this weekend.
