Hi Friends!
I. GREETING 
      How is the summer going for you?  I'm personally NOT a fan of hot weather, sew Shel Silverstein's poem above is usually my summer mantra!!  However, as if Ohio is not hot enough....our entire family is preparing to descend upon daughter, Meg, in Cocoa Beach, Florida for a week.  Why is it that even in the hottest temps, it doesn't seem that bad when you're on vacation!!  Of course.....there is the ocean.  Ha Ha Ha!!!
      Because sew many of our quilter friends are alsew trying to escape the heat, we've got lots of fun stuff going on around the shop this month.  Sit 'n Sews have been Full-to-Bursting, and Fun, Fun, Fun!! (Oh, and FREE!).  There are some classes coming up to entice you out of the house.  We've lots of summer specials and of course not one, but THREE Row X Row options to tempt you! Alsew, we had such fun, and such a great turnout for our June 26 Mystery that we are offering One More Mystery Event this summer!! Kit cutting has begun, sew please let us know if you can join us sew we can help choose fabrics you'll LOVE!!  The date is Sunday, August 14 from 11-7. Price is $129.95 (or sign up with a friend and both of you save $10!).  I do not have a date for any future Mystery Events as my fall schedule gets pretty crazy with travel.  Sew, hope you can join us for the August Mystery!!! Fun*Friends*Food!!!                                      
II ~ BITS 'N PIECES
  Here is a compilation of upcoming classes and events for you to consider.  I hope you can join us!!

            Singer Featherweight 221 machines from the 1930's to the 1960's.   
   I look sew forward to those gatherings!  We have quite a few mini  patterns and kits available now for anyone interested in working on one of them from  home.  Our next gathering will be Saturday, August 20 from 10-5. After that it will be Saturday, Sept 10. I'll have new projects for both meetings! (sorry....no pictures yet!)
    Saturday, August 20                                    10-5                                             $5

3) HOT TIN ROOF Sue Nichols loves to play with weird fabrics! She gets her hands on things that no one else knows what to do with and makes something fun!  She designed the quilt Hot Tin Roof from the striped fabrics we ordered and Meg and I are busy writing and illustrating the pattern.  Sue has a class scheduled for this that will be FUN and EASY!!  Hope you can join her!!!  Your choice of our striped fabrics!
Sat. Sept 24                                  10-5                                                       $30

 
 4) OSU CHAMPIONS       
    Kits in any size are available for order, and the large lap is alsew in stock in the shop
  for $94.95.  Each kit is complete and cut and ready-to-sew. It contains Thangles needed
  to complete half-square triangle blocks, borders, binding, and complimentary label.   If
  you would like me to schedule another class for this quilt, please let me know!

Due to popular request, we're now kitting Ohio University kits.  Priced as the OSU Champions, these quilts are fun and fast to do. Back them with the OU fabrics!!  Next on the kitting table are kits for the University of Kentucky.  We're waiting for a couple new bolts of UK blues to complete those kits.  Because of the size and detail of the UK applique, these kits will be a bit more expensive the the Ohio kits.  Stay tuned and I'll let you know when the kits are available!
