Well after so many of you said that I needed to keep this blog thing going, I guess I better get busy. This past weekend was a blast at Good Wives we had our annual Holiday Open House. We are so grateful for our loyal customers who travel long distance to visit us. We have many things displayed for the up coming Christmas Holiday. We concentrated on having a homespun Christmas this year using homemade ornaments and using nature to guide the way. If you missed the open house please stop in soon to see whats happening.
The upcoming year is going to be an exciting one for us at Good Wives. We have joined "Quilt Spree" which started out as the Central Ohio Shop Hop and has since been renamed and revamped. Our first event with them will be Dec. 5 at the Holiday Inn in Worthington Ohio. This will be a very eventful day as all the shops will be demonstrating a new idea to each and every attendee. Get all the info at www.myquiltspree.com We are going to go on the 4th of December and spend the night. This will be a good time for all of us to unwind and enjoy sewing with our friends.
We also will be starting several new Block of the Months the first of the year. The one I am most excited about is the The Civil War Tribute Quilt. This quilt was designed by the talented girls at Homestead Hearth using a beautiful collection of fabric designed by Judie Rothermel. It is an awesome quilt to commemorate the 150 Anniversary of the Civil War in 2011. The quilt is 110" x112" so this is no little quilt. Stop by the shop for more info. Also we will be doing the wool quilt "Settlers Pride. This quilt is in the shop now but will have to go on to the next location on Wed. of this week so hurry in on Tue to check it out, it is gorgeous.
We are currently working on the class schedule for Jan.- June so let us know if you are looking for something in particular.
I will add some pics of the open house but please stop by and let us show you what we have coming up.
