Hoppin Bobbin E News

I hope everyone has been able to tolerate this heat.  While today is beautiful, it sure has been too hot for me outside.  So, my plan is just to stay in the AC and sew, sew, sew.  You should come in and see our new samples!  All of us have been busy!  New fun projects, new classes and our new Strippin Night.  If you want in on that class, do it quick.  We had quite a few registered when we only posted it on Facebook.  Be sure to follow us there.  We are always posting new items as they come in and our new classes will show up there before you might see them in a newsletter. 
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer vacation, mine is coming up soon and I am really looking forward to it! 
Stay cool and keep your Bobbins Hoppin!  Kelly and of course Tootsie too!
