Hoppin Bobbin Newsletter

Well, it has been a harried few months for us here at the shop.  Bessie has been running frantically, as we try to keep up with the quilting that has been brought in.  It's pretty obvious that all of you stayed home and SEWED during the storm we had in January.  We are glad that Cheryl is coming back tomorrow and that her surgery went well and that her foot has healed enough to come back.  Please continue to pray for Cathy and her family.  Chaz is still recovering and Ernie goes in for another surgery tomorrow. 
There are so many new things coming up.  New teachers, new projects, new fabrics and I'm anxious to be able to announce our "surprise" next month.  Do you have any idea how hard it is to keep a secret for months?  Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for all of the new things that are coming up!
