Hoppin Bobbin Newsletter


I can say that Tootsie and  I are glad to be back to the shop this week!  What a great time at the Southern Comforters Guild show and at the Continental in Lancaster last week!  Both of these shows opened up some new doors and opportunities for Hoppin Bobbin that I am really excited about!  It was great to see many of you at the shows and if you live far from the shop, look for us at several other shows coming up in the next 6 months.  Now that we have "new wheels" it makes it so much easier to get  there.  Big thanks to everyone who helped prepare and kept me sane during the prep and shows!  They all know who they are!!!
Kelly and Tootsie too!
