Hi Fellow Stitchers!      

    It's been A WEEK!   Actually, it's been TWO Weeks ... of mass shipments arriving daily and trying to get everything entered into the sales register, updated in the catalog, your orders filled and packaged and ready to mail off to you.   I went in to the shop today, got the radio turned UP to Classic Rock and got my 'hustle' on.  Cut about 30 yards of fabric, got the rest of the EXPO charts sorted and in order by designer and in the 'new chart racks', and .. kind of re-did the 'fabric cubes' (that will take a bit of getting used to for us .. and maybe some of you) .. but made more room for all the different counts and colors of linens and aidas that have arrived (and still will be coming).  Spent a total of 6 hours there today .. and that's why your newsletter is so late!  But I feel better. Tuesday I'll start ringing your orders through for the post office to pick up and deliver to you. Only have 3 full mail bins worth to ring through!

   Then when I got home, I spent several hours adding the 'new to be coming' charts.  I didn't think after the past two weeks that there could possibly be so many new releasing .. but man, there are really some great designs coming out!!!   And such a selection of fun Halloween designs too!


So without further delay .. here's what has just arrived at Hoffman Distributing ...

How do you get these you ask?  It's so easy .. when you place an order during the month of September, 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!


     OK .. I think that's pretty much it.  I'm gonna try to stitch a bit tonight and tomorrow morning too.  Haven't had the time or energy to ply my needle to fabric for weeks and I miss it!  Of course, I AM bringing new charts home kitted up in anticipation of stitch time .. hope spring eternal.  Tomorrow Dave and I will be spending the day at Dave's sister's house with her and his brother Tom who is visiting from California.  Twill be fun!

   Stay Safe ... and STITCH HAPPY ...
