Stockings for Sept and Oct



The patterns are written and handed off to the printer. We still have another proofing process to go through and then they will be printed. The projected completion date is next Friday and will ship out to the distributors then. This means they will be in the shops in about 2 - 2 1/2 weeks. Loose feathers will follow a couple of weeks after the stocking patterns. We are a little behind....but will catch up someday....not sure exactly when that will be, but we are always hopeful!

Don't forget the drawing will be on Monday morning.

Friday morning, Barb and I will leave for Spring Green, WI. We are driving to Country Sampler to teach a quilting class. The project is a long harvest table runner. Maggie Bonanomi and Stacy Nash will be there too. Hope to see you there! I think the shop will be decorated for Christmas, so we can hardly wait to see.

Until later!
