Hoppin Bobbin E News


It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week and that Christmas is right around the corner.  We have been busy working feverishly, trying to get all of the quilting done for Christmas and think we are in Santa's workshop now.  The quilts have been beautiful and I would love to see photos, of all of them being "gifted", show up on our facebook page after Christmas.  show and Tell is always fun.  There are many things coming up between now and Christmas here at Hoppin Bobbin and we hope that you will join us for classes, fun, sew in days and our club meetings.  Don't forget to mention, to those asking what you want for Christmas, that we have gift cards available too.  Who wants a mixer?  I want fabric!!!!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Veterans Day and that you honored your veterans in a very special way.  I am thankful for each and everyone of them that have fought for our freedoms and for our everyday safety.  I also appreciate their families who give up so much for our military men and women to be able to serve.  God Bless you all! 

I hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving, and that you get to spend it with those that you love.  Enjoy!  Remember, Hoppin Bobbin will be closed Thursday and Friday next week to celebrate with our families but we will be here Saturday for a "Sewcial", so bring a project and your machine and come and join us! 

Gobble, gobble!
Kelly and of course, Tootsie too!
