Where does the time go? I think it is true that time passes more quickly as you get older. I can remember those long summer holidays that went on for ever. Now I blink and a month has gone past.
I can hardly believe that I have been at The Corner Patch for 5 weeks now! I’ve done two shows, lots of “sit and sew” sessions and workshops, opened the shop specially to host a quilting group visit – and now I’m planning the arrival of the Christmas fabrics!
To make room for the Christmas stock we need to free up some space – and that means having a sale. Sale Day at The Corner Patch this year will be Saturday 6th July between 10 am and 5 pm. You will find plenty of our beautiful 100% cotton fabrics at less than half their previous marked price – so come along a grab a bargain.
Upstairs we will turn the workroom into a Christmas Wonderland – a room filled with wonderful Christmas and winter fabrics so that you can make a start on all of your Christmas projects and gifts. Make a note in your diary now!
It actually feels like a winter’s day here today too! We haven’t had rain all day, unlike the past few days, but it is still cold and grey. I have gone back to wearing long trousers, socks and shoes rather than cropped trousers and sandals I would expect to be wearing in June. Come back Summer – we haven’t finished with you yet!
It has been lovely to meet so many of you over the past few weeks. I am really enjoying the shop and beginning to feel more at home. I am still relying a lot on Caroline and Faith who help out in the shop – thank you both – and husband Alan, who has fetched and carried, mended and altered shop fittings and tried to keep the finances in order! I am just enjoying being surrounded by these gorgeous fabrics and playing at shops!
Hope to see you on sale day – or as soon as you can pay a visit to this little corner of patchwork heaven.
