Our Open House is this weekend, so we have a lot to do to get ready for it. Wait until you see our “candy” fat quarters – all wrapped and ready for you. Just update your contact information and you get one, free! And — your contact information slip goes in a bowl for our Grand Prize drawing! What is it, you ask? Our Grand Prize this year is a book with 12 easy-to-make quilts from 5″ charm squares and 2-1/2″ jelly roll strips, a package of 2-1/2″ strips by Tonga Treats, and a package of 5″ squares, also by Tonga Treats. You don’t have to be present to win, but you do have to complete our contact update form.
We will also have some sweet treats to keep your bellies full while you do our make-and-takes, visit with friends, and shop. If you want to make a weekend of it, bring some friends and go on the Hand ‘n Hand x 3 tour. Pick up a passport at one of the three shops, visit and shop at each, have your passport stamped, and you’ll be entered to win one of three wonderful prizes. The other two shops are Sweet PEA’s Yarn & Gifts in St. Clair, and Red Mudd Studio in Kimball.
In case you aren’t familiar with the other two shops, Sweet PEA’s offers hand-dyed yarns from around the world. Patty will have discounts, demos, and more this weekend. Deb at Red Mudd Studio will have funky pottery bowls, mugs, and more for sale, as well as a mini art fair with featured guest artists, raffle, and goodies!
The hours for each of the three businesses on this handmade tour are Friday, November 16, 5-9, Saturday, November 17, 10-5, and Sunday, November 18, Noon to 4. We hope to see each of you, and all your friends, neighbors, and relatives, on this wonderful weekend of shopping and fun!
