Shop Hop

Our 12th "Romancing Eastern North Carolina Shop Hop" begins this morning and runs through Saturday. Check out the Facebook page of the same name for details.

Meanwhile, MY shop is clean and neat and ready to go!  I haven't taken pictures inside the shop for a while, so now is a good time.


The classroom has been transformed to accommodate the shop hop quilt, demonstrations and other special displays.
