Hi Fellow Stitchers!
Another busy week and short staffed, but I made it through!! Michelle has been off all week again with severe kidney issues and Debbie, who had tripped a week ago, was off Friday and Saturday with her leg elevated trying to stave off a potential blood clot. I've decided that by Tuesday I'll come down with double pneumonia so I, too, can get a couple of days off. (no I'm NOT sick, I just figured that would be my excuse!)
Yesterday Carol from Sweet Variations (candy store next door) brought me a 'small survival bag of chocolate' since I was alone and not able to eat lunch ... such a sweet woman with such wonderful chocolates! I scarffed them down! Just what I needed to keep my blood sugar up!!! Hopefully will have a full staff back in this week, If not, the shop will still be open with me in my track shoes!
So without further delay .. here's what has just arrived at Hoffman Distributing ...
JUST ANOTHER BUTTON COMPANY/HANDS ON DESIGN -- Roll With It Pincushion (just a couple left .. this one IS Limited!)
SCISSOR TAIL DESIGNS -- Autumn Blessings
TELLIN EMBLEM -- Love Bugs
WILLOW HILL SAMPLINGS -- Remember Me
WITH THY NEEDLE & THREAD -- Jack O Lantern Jubilee
WE HAVE YOUR FREEBIE CHARTS FOR JULY
How do you get these you ask? It's so easy .. when you place an order during the month of July, all of the above will be automatically included with your order. When you come into the shop, simply ask us for the 'Freebies Of The Month'. Or, you can send us a SASE (legal sized, 1/8" x 9 1/2" self-addressed stamped envelope) and we'll mail them right off to you!
This online show for shops was So Popular in March .. they're doing it again!
This is an Online Show open to Shops ONLY. That's why as soon as we get pictures and info from the designers and companies that will be showing their new products, we'll be adding them to our web catalog and giving you the KEYWORD of EXPO to search and see and start placing orders!
IF YOU SEE something on Facebook coming at the EXPO and you want it/them, just let us know - we don't have images, pricing & info from the designers (YET!) but we'll happily start taking preorders for you!!
This EXPO is to be a bit different this year for our shop as this show will be held WHILE I'm up north volunteering my time working at the Cheboygan County Humane Society sale at the fairgrounds. And I will not have internet while I'm there to do the shopping myself. So will be showing Debbie and Michelle how to place your orders while the show is live, and when I get back on the 31st, will be placing any additional orders myself in the shop by placing orders without being able to see my designer friends face to face on the live show format. But ... don't worry - let us know what you want and you WILL get those items!!
NEW DESIGNS & SHOPPING FOR YOU = FUN!!!!

Still stitching on Rosewood Manor's Tea! - those violets are coming out incredible! I would have had a lot more done, if not completed, if I wasn't coming home each night totally whipped from working (alone) in the shop. But .. since it's supposed to be in the 90's again today and tomorrow with high humidity, I will ensconced in my chair stitching and fighting with Dave for control of the tv remote. I am an Olympic watching junkie .. doesn't matter what sport .. I want to see them ALL! And Dave, well let's just say Dave is NOT a fan. Maybe I can talk him into taking all day long naps so he can stay awake and watch tv junk at night while I'm sleeping. ::fingers crossing but hope is low::
OK .. I think that's pretty much it. Just got through watching our doe with triplets playing in the back yard .. so sweet. Last night, after our 40 minute rain deluge which flooded our front yard, saw the doe with twins come out of the woods .. and the twins went splashing joyously through the water with mom just staring at them! What IS it with toddlers and puddles? LOL
So, until next Sunday ... Stay Safe ... and STITCH HAPPY ...
