Hoppin Bobbin Newsletter

Our sew in days have been so full lately!  It is exciting to see so many ladies working on so many different projects and to hear the laughter coming from the classroom.  I've also heard quite a few good reports about our new From Marti and Me Club.  The gals are having fun, they are learning new techniques and enjoying the new projects.  Even I myself, am having a blast!  So, Keep up with what is going on and come and join us for fun times!  We have many fun classes coming up in the near future and we are already scheduling for after the new year at this time.  I'm excited about all of the fun stuff coming up!  Come in and check it out! 

Hope to see you soon! 
Kelly and of course, Tootsie too!

Quilting for Christmas

The holidays are quickly approaching. Hoppin Bobbin's cut off date to receive Quilts to be returned for Christmas, is November 1st.  Please be sure to get your quilt in as soon as possible to avoid rush charges.  Any quilts that are received after the cut off date (and need to be returned for Christmas) will incur a $50.00 Rush Charge through the end of November.  Any quilts received in December that need to be returned for Christmas, will incur a $100.00 rush charge.  There will be no exceptions to this rule. Please plan accordingly.

We are also taking in Quilts, between now and Christmas, that are needed for after Christmas.  If you need quilts done shortly after the new year, it is time to get them in.  The "After Christmas" Quilting list, is already growing.
