The Bus Tour

We had an exciting day yesterday , we had a bus full of 50 women stop into our store! It was crazy but a lot of fun. We took days to get ready and had everything in order and the shop never looked so good. They hit us hard but we enjoyed their business and they were all so friendly. We had a full staff with some of our own customers. We had our very own, Sherry, who does our long-arm quilting join us and local pattern designer, Karen DuMont.We also had some of our great customers Marylin and Elane. We had lots of fun and hope to do it again soon !
