May News letter from Ellen's Quilting Corner
Things have just been moving right along for us here at Ellen's Quilting Corner. We have been busy little bees getting samples made out of all the fantastic new fabric we are getting in. We had a Jodi Barrows trunk show at the beginning of the month and that was great! We had so much fun and learned lots. Ellen and Jenny had never used her square in a square ruler before, so they came right back to the shop and made a sample.
Ellen and Jenny will be going to market tomorrow for the weekend and will be placing an order with Jodi Barrows. So if you are interested in learning Square in a Square then we can get some things in for the shop. Down the road there just might be a class or two on things in her books.
We are hosting a

From Dave's Work Bench:With bright sunny summer days upon us, don't forget to move your threads out of direct sun light. Direct sun light not only fades the color of your threads but it also dries them out making them break and shred easier.
