A New Local Quilt Shop Opening

Excerpt from a Yahoo Group posting:

" . . . Mike and I are opening a quilt store in Holts Summit. We have named it Rooster Creek.

Our opening date will be June 3rd, 2014.

It is in the building across the street from the Elementary school on Summit Drive.

Look for the 8' metal Rooster outside.

We are selling Brother Sewing Machines, Fabric, Notions, Batting, Backing, DMC floss, Jack Dempsey embroidery, and more.

We will be offering sewing and quilting classes and have a large sewing room with new Brother machines that can be used by anyone who would like to come and sew for an hour or the day.

We are offering long arm quilting services and Mike will be repairing and servicing sewing machines.

We are also working with Tin Lizzie to have a Demo machine in the store that people can rent to quilt their own projects. . . .

We are so excited to share our new store with all of you. We look forward to seeing you there."

I've Share this on FB, also.

A great opportunity for us quilters


For us to support a local small business person.

Hope you all are enjoying this Spring weather.

We are expecting close to 90°F temps today ! !

Will be posting Deep Sea Jellyfish Cardi soon.

Just adding last button band

Then seaming side seams

And sewing on the buttons

Hugs to each of you
