Long, long, time ago... It has been so very long since I've had a chance to write and let everyone know how the shop has been lately. If you've recently visted the shop, then you know about all the changes, losses, and upcoming events in our town. We recently had our quilt show in Old Town Temecula, sponsored by the Temecula Valley of the Mist Quilt Guild in early October. What a successful and beautiful show it was for them, it was a show well done! They shared some of the best artistic and stunning works of art by their members. The best part, it was held on the Columbus Day Holiday, and our little town was busy with a Greek Festival, grape stomping at the wineries and the show. By the end of that holiday, folks must have been pretty exhausted! Now as we head towards the big holidays, many of you know they'll be here too soon, like next week, right??? By the end of this month, we shall have our Christmas parade in Old Town. Talk about rushing the holidays, the City set up their Christmas decorations in Old Town today...I'll wait until Thanksgiving! No need to rush out the month of November yet, haven't had my turkey and gravy yet! One of the changes in town was the closing of our quilt shop, Quilter's Coop. Many of you are stopping by and asking what happened to them, or did they move. They officially closed on Friday, November 2nd. But we still have Temecula Quilt Company and Pieced With Love, so folks continue supporting your local businesses so we may all continue to thrive. Another change in our shop is the addition of a new face, my husband, who retired after 30 years with a utility company. Congratulations to him! His co-workers named him "The Wool Daddy". Awesome. If he's around and you have any questions, perhaps Wool Daddy will provide you some assistance... Dinner time, gotta run, I will promise to write more often too!
