Painting Party! 
We've had quite a few volunteers that want  to come and help paint so we can get into our new location.  So if you want to help, put on your painting clothes, and   bring a roller and a paint pan.  We will supply the paint, roller covers and the pizza! 
Sunday, October 1st from 10 - ?  Monday, October 2nd from 10-?

It's been an interesting couple of weeks trying to find a new location for Hoppin Bobbin to move to.  There are always so many things to consider when finding a new space.  While we are dreading the move itself (do you have any idea how much stuff collects in a shop in 7 years?), we are so excited about all of the possibilities for our new location!  Please take note that we will be closed October 28th-October 31st while we move all our goodies to our new location.  We will re-open on November 1st in the new facility and while we may still be a mess, we will be there!!!  Thanks for all of your support for all of these years!  We're so happy to be able to continue to serve you. 
Kelly, Elisabeth, Barb and Tootsie too!

Turning Twenty Again
Are you looking for a fun and scrappy quilt that is also quick and  will continue to build upon your quilting skill? This class is for you. Join us as we make this fun quilt using various size blocks, that when joined together, makes a finished 18” block. Each block has a focal block that is 8” so you can make it scrappy or you can use that fabric you've been holding on for the right quilt to come along. This is a fat quarter friendly quilt that is super fun and simple using a variety of fabrics ranging from light to dark. This is a great pattern for those batiks you have been wanting to use.

Quilting for Christmas
Just a reminder that our quilting cutoff date for Quilts to be returned for Christmas is November 7th.  We are extending this date from the 1st to the 7th, since we will be closed several days the end of October for our move.   So, get those quilts done so you have plenty of time to do that dreaded binding!  There will be rush fees for any quilts received after the 7th that need to be returned before Christmas.
