Christmas in the Country......

Just a quick *heads up* about an event happening in Whatcom County this weekend in case you are out and about.  This is kind of a studio/shop tour with six or seven folks participating.  We are well acquainted with at least one of them!  

I know many of you have admired one of our many local longarm quilter's work ~ The Country Quilter, Nikki Crisp.  She has a very exciting adventure she's embarking on; and this Christmas In The Country Tour is kind of a *kick off* weekend.  Her family recently purchased an old farmhouse (early 1900's) and they have converted a former hen house into The Hen House!  Nikki has her longarm quilting machine in there to work her magic on customer quilts.  But, the exciting part of this is, if you take a class she gives, you can then rent her second longarm machine to do your own quilting!  Plus....the rest of The Hen House is available for *day retreats* for up to 10 people.  We have brochures here or you can pick up the info if you decide to go and visit during the Tour.  Here is the link to the Craigslist posting with addresses, etc.

Around here, we're tidying up after the sale and getting ready for our own Holiday Open House next Friday and Saturday (November 21-22).  And the UPS/FedEx people have been delivering some great fabrics, including some new Kaffe Fassett prints, Christmas flannel and fun novelty fabrics!  Okay...customers at the counter....Harriet and I will be having another fun day with fabric....hope your day is terrific!
