Hoppin Bobbin E News


I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas and that the New Year brings you all the blessings you have hoped for.  While I am not a big one for New Years Resolutions, I hope that if you have made them, that you reach your goals!  Maybe one of those is to finish some of your UFO projects.  I have a few that I am trying to finish now, in my spare time.  So, if you need the time, come and join us on one of our sew in days or if you are looking for new projects, check out our class list and come in and join us to learn a new technique. 

Keep an eye out for news of a new From Marti and Me club starting, for those of you who missed the first series!  Also, for those who have already been a member, we will be continuing with more fun projects and demos to come for the next 6 months! 

Make sure to read to the bottom to see everything that is coming up and what is on special this month!
