August News Letter from Ellen's Quilting Corner

Welcome August!!

It's hard to believe summer is almost over but that means fall is right around the corner. We have been working very hard on planning classes for the fall months and let me tell you we have packed the classes in! Get your calendar out because you wont want to miss any of these great classes.

Gadget Get Together
September 12th starting at 5:30.
On the second Wed. of every month we have Gadget Get Together. This is when we show you a ruler or gadget and how to use it. We give a 15% discount if you buy that ruler or gadget that night. Plus we feature a specific fabric for the night and give a nice 40% discount off of the fabric. We also love show and tell time with everyone who joins us. There are always snacks and drinks and lots and lots of fun. But the sad part is that it is only for 2 hours, that means you only have from 5 till 7 to come and shop with savings and enjoy our demo and everyone's show and tell
