Hoppin Bobbin E News


I can't believe how quickly this year has flown by.  Christmas is just around the corner and I am still wondering where spring went????  I love this time of the year, though. The fall colors are my favorites and I love watching the leaves change. 
We have so many fun things coming up in the next few months and I am so excited about all of them.  We'll be featuring a new block of the month from Moda from the Patchwork Garden line, a Moda
Nationwide challenge called Piece and Comfort, to celebrate our Military Men and Women. There's a  Hoppin Bobbin Fat Quarter challenge that will have a fabulous grand prize!  So, look for our new posts and emails with all of these fun things coming up!

Hoppin Bobbin is so excited over the great response to our new club.
The first pick up for patterns and kits was on October 11th. Since
we have had such a huge success for the first month we will
be taking pre-orders on next month's kits for those who are interested in purchasing the kit.
So please stop by the shop or give us a call to let us know if you are interested in purchasing next month's kits.
