Hoppin Bobbin E-Newletter
On Wednesday, December 3rd, we had a wonderful Girl Scout Troop stop by to sew some ornaments for a local nursing home for Christmas. These girls worked very hard and some have never sewn before and now are very interested in taking our beginner class.
The Espresso Ornament Fabric Kits that we have in our shop were used.

They face adversity and endure hardships; yet all too often
their troubles go unnoticed. We also honor those Soldiers,
Sailors, Airmen, and Marines who must miss holidays, birthdays,
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. Hoppin Bobbin carries the fabric lines required for this challenge.
If you are interested in this challenge, please sign up at Hoppin Bobbin.
