Everyone here at Hoppin Bobbin would like to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! While we are thankful everyday,this is the time of year to reflect on all of our blessings.  I would like to thank all of you, for your support over the last four years.  I can't tell you how blessed I feel to be able to do what I love and how lucky I am that I have such wonderful clients.  You all bless me with your smiles, kind gestures and your support of Hoppin Bobbin.  I could not be here without you!
I also want to say a special thank you to all of the gals that work here with me daily.  They say it "takes a village" and believe me, it does!  I am lucky enough to have gals that have a passion for quilting,  and that work very hard to keep all of the wheels turning here at Hoppin Bobbin.  All of you have a special place here and your individual talents combined, are what keep this place going.  Thank you for your dedication to Hoppin Bobbin and to the art of Quilting. 

I hope that each of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you enjoy your  time with family and friends. 
Kelly and of course, Tootsie too!

They face adversity and endure hardships; yet all too often
their troubles
go unnoticed. We also honor those  Soldiers,
Sailors, Airmen, and Marines

and family moments in far-away distant lands. It is for the family members who keep the house running while their husband, wife,
son or daughter is away.  It is for the children who dearly
miss
their deployed parent, brother, sister, uncle, or aunt.We say thank you
to the men and women who have volunteered to serve our
country and preserve our freedom.
