Don't feel blue... I've got some happy news!

Feeling "blue?"

Here's some happy news for your Monday... 

 The annual Mid-Summer's Clearance Sale (for local, in-store customers only) begins this Friday August 3rd and runs through Sunday August 5th.  

The online version of the Sale (for our online customers only) begins next week and runs Friday August 10 and runs through Sunday, August 12th.

 How will the 2 Mid-Summer's Clearance Sales work this year? We're keeping things easy: 20% off pretty much everything (sale doesn't include clearance items, food, long-arm quilting services, and you may not redeem gift certificates during the sale... you know the drill!).  We've never done our Midsummer's Clearance Sale this way, and we've never had a 3-day 20% off sale before, so I can't wait to see how this goes...

 Denyse Schmidt is coming to visit in just a couple of weeks!  There are literally a couple of spaces left in her classes, but even if you aren't taking a class, you can hobnob with Denyse at the SEAM meeting on Saturday, August 18th.  We'll be doing a book-signing, meet and greet, and a fabric launch party for her new line, Chicopee!

 We are back from our annual pilgrimage to the Augusta Civic Center for Maine Quilts.  The shop is a huge mess.  Hopefully we get it all put back together in time for everyone to mess it up again at the sale (nothing says a successful sale like a messy shop!).

And if, despite all this happy news, you are STILL feeling "blue" it's probably because...

 Ollie and I went for an ultrasound on Wednesday.  All is well with the baby, I am 5+ months along and we are having a BOY!  I see more Quick Change Trousers in my future!
