We have a winner!


 Thank you to everyone who commented on our blog!  We were so excited to hear from all of you!
We started off our Monday with our drawing....Here is Susy making sure the names are all mixed up...and I checked to make sure all of you were in there!!!!!




  ......and here she is picking out the winner!




.....and it is Julie!  She said....."I LOVE your store and always try to visit when I am in Southern California....I always come away with lots of goodies!!"  Thanks Julie!  Send us your street address and we will get your charm pack right out to you...






Our mail brought us Tonee's new Vintage Club project.  We all love it and know that you will too.  There is still space in her August 18th class....so call the shop and reserve a spot soon.  The Loft number is 619 466-5411.








.....and then our nice UPS man brought another new line of Christmas fabric....Designed by Sandi Gervais it is "Merry Melody"...
as you can see we have yardage,                                                                                                          
charm packs, jelly rolls and fat
quarters.  Get started on all those
fun holiday projects early!!!!



We had our last "Summer Night" on Friday.  We had a BIG group of doll makers....and we had tables in the living room as well as the classroom.



We had lots of food, laughter and fun! Watch for more Wimpy All-Nighters in the months to come.  We had six weeks of fun this summer!



I guess Susy and I better get to work on the list Kathy left us for Monday work....We hope you have a wonderful week and we'll be back soon!

Something Old and Something New

   

 Saturday we had a huge celebration at the Loft.....for 27 years Joe and Sharon Smith have kept the doors open and the welcome mat out.

     Bright and early that day they filled the yard with some great antiques....and they sold them at 27% off in honor of the day.  






Everywhere you looked there were fun pieces just wanting to jump in your car....(I of course bought some!)





We had customers of all ages.....Alexis brought her daughter Olivia in.....and it wasn't her first time in the shop.  We had such fun making her smile.  















.....and then Bella came in with her Grandma Pam for her first visit! 





   This was definitely not Anita's first visit and she is now the proud owner of this wooden grocery cart!  She had everyone drooling over it!



Carol, Susie and Maggie have been friends of each other and the Loft for years!  It was so good to get to visit with them yet again.



All in all it was a wonderful day.  Thanks to everyone who came and made it such a success!  We wouldn't still be in business if it wasn't for all of you!






     Today it was back to a typical Monday at the shop.....but we have some great new kits we would love to share with you!  Kathy was busy last week kitting them (with the help of some friends) and they are on the floor and ready to go home with you.....BUT they are in limited quantities and you'll want to get yours soon before they sell out.

This is a design of Little Stitches called "Hearthstone"....it is a 53"x 69" black, white and red quilt.  The kit costs $82.95.....It includes binding, but no backing.







.......and here is the kit for Kansas Troubles new "Merry, Joy, Wish" from their new Moda line "Holiday Medley".....





Here is a close up of the pattern cover....The quilt is 66" x 81" and is ready for you.  The kit includes binding, but no backing and retails at $110.00.

   We also have layer cakes, charm packs, jelly rolls and fat quarters....and it is here on the bolt too!












      So here you have something old, something new....and it is all for you!

     Today we are starting something new here at the Loft.  Susy and I worked on the blog today and hope to visit you again soon.....and you may be hearing from other voices in the weeks to come.
Let us know what you think.  Leave a comment and we will put your name in a drawing for a charm pack for Kansas Troubles new line....Be sure to write by this Friday, July 27th.....


       Bye for now and don't forget to write!    Jo Ann and Susy
