A LOOK BACK.... December 28 2014

OUR 9 A.M. THIMBLES GROUP MET FOR THE LAST TIME IN 2014 & THIS PHOTO PRETTY MUCH SUMS UP WHAT IT'S LIKE YEAR ROUND AT THIMBLES & THINGS...

A final gathering such as this gets one thinking...


 

"IT'S BEEN QUITE A YEAR AT THIMBLES & THINGS"

 

 

IN JANUARY JENNIFER BECAME THE NEW CERTIFIED PFAFF DEALER

WANDA AND SUE B'S. BIG HAWAIIAN ADVENTURE....

 


Ohhhh, I'm thinking there is something more potent than wine in those tumblers!!!

It was all play for these best buds as they took classes with Nancy Lee Chong

...and Rob Appell

 

 

 WE OPENED UP OUR ENTIRE SHOP TO CUSTOMERS WORLDWIDE!!

 

 

 

SOME OF THE GANG HEADED TO QUILTER'S MARKET IN PITTSBURGH...

 Jen and I shall remain forever humbled and overwhelmed by this great honour...

 A MOST LUXURIOUS & FABULOUS NEW QUILTING RETREAT OPENED UP LESS THAN SEVEN (7) MINUTES  FROM THE SHOP

That's right!   The Fireside Retreat, complete with EIGHT goregous beds dressed in decadent linens and enough space for EIGHT quilters to relax, quilt, chat, sip wine or tea and enjoy fabulous meals in an historic atmosphere that is to die for!!!

 WE CELEBRATED OUR 15TH ANNIVERSARY!!!!!

QUILTING BY THE LAKE AT THE FERN RESORT WAS A SMASHING SUCCESS!!!
