Pretty Pockets
We had such a great turn out for this event. We had enough fabric to make at least 1,700 pockets. We were able to completely finish 660 pockets. We would like to thank everyone who came out to help, and those who donated for this great cause.
Maryanne Arthur who is the creator of Pretty Pockets, stopped by on Friday, January 16th during our sew in to see how the progress for the Pretty Pockets event was going for Saturday.

The Fat Quarter Challenge


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,
