Hoppin Bobbin E News


Happy Thanksgiving        The Holidays are fast approaching and we are busy, busy here at Hoppin Bobbin planning for Holidays and the New Year.  We have several new clubs and projects coming up in the New Year that we are really excited about.  Our Year of Love and Fun club ended in November but the new club, Another Year of Fun, will start in January.  We are working hard on new patterns, kits and all kinds of great new classes!  So, keep an eye out for our newsletters and lots of fun news to come!
