SHOP HOP UPDATE - DAY TWO!!!!! September 26 2014

HAPPY SHOP HOPPER NEWS FROM THIMBLES & THINGS!!!

 

IT'S BEEN ANOTHER AMAZING DAY AT THIMBLES & THINGS.    WE WERE SO LUCKY TO HAVE  JONI NEWMAN, DESIGNER OF THE BEAUTIFUL "POSTCARDS FROM MUSKOKA" SHOP HOP QUILT VISIT WITH US FIRST THING IN THE MORNING.

 

 

 

MANY QUILTERS GOT A FIRST-HAND LESSON FROM JONI ON JUST HOW TO PUT THIS SPECTACULAR QUILT TOGETHER.   THAT WASN'T ALL.   WE WERE ALSO GIVEN THE  CHANCE TO VIEW MORE OF HER INCREDIBLE DESIGNS.   PERSONALLY, I ADORED THAT LITTLE FLOWER AND BEE TABLE RUNNER MADE WITH SHIMMER FABRICS!!!!   (Psssst.....  Joni, if that beauty just happens to be missing from your collection, please know it is NOT at T & T... I promise.  It, quite simply, is not here)

 

 THE WINNER OF OUR  DAILY DRAW FROM DAY ONE WAS ANNOUNCED.   CONGRATULATIONS TO NICOLE GARWOOD!!!

 

 

 

Nicole won a gorgeous pack of Tonga Treats!   40 sensational 10" x 10" batiks pre-cuts valued at $42.95.

 

HOLY KA-ROLY!!!   NOT BAD FOR SHOP HOPPING THROUGH THIMBLES & THINGS!!!

Hey Sue!   Would you please get back to work?!??!?!?   You and Nicole are looking like you are settling in for the long haul!  

 

I have to admit.  Those chairs are comfie.   AND if you've had a chance to visit the Fireside Retreat, you'll know the entire front porch provides those most comfortable chairs to sit down in and enjoy the countryside.   Imagine adding a glass of wine!!!!!

 

Just a reminder.   The Fireside Retreat will be holding an open house on the last day of SHOP HOP.   It is well worth the very short drive from our shop, all while enjoying the gorgeous colours and spectacular weather.   Did I tell you they have amazing treats too?  One of you lucky ducks is going to win a two-night stay!!!!

 

Quick note:   "Quilting by the Lake" at the Fern Restort is filling up fast.   More than a few quilters coming into the shop have requested further information on this fun-filled and very educational weekend with the Sew Squared team of Sue and Wanda.   In order that you are not disappointed, if you are planning on attending, please get your booking in now.   Delaying for another day or two could result in you having to wait for next year.

Information for regarding both The Fireside Retreat vacation property and Quilting By the Lake at The Fern Resort are available by returning to our home page and clicking on "Retreats"

 

WE ARE ALL SET AND READY FOR DAY THREE!!!!

 

SEE YOU TOMORROW!!!

 

ciao quilters!!!
