Hello and Good Day to you,

Spring seems to have finally arrived in Astoria: the past weekend was lovely and I spent quite a bit of time outside with our three little pug dogs. They enjoyed snoozing in the grass or baking on the back porch. Dozer liked being able to chase birds as they flew over the yard.

We’re reinstating our First Bolt of the Day, If you are the first person of the day to get a cut of fabric you get 10% off the first fabric, and that bolt remains 10% off for that day.

We have some events coming up this month and next. First is the Bernina Sew and Save for Summer, May 13th-17th. We‘ll be offering $100, $200 or $300 instant savings on different sewing machines. Get a summer project CD with any $50 purchase.

Projects are shown on CD
