Quilts Of Valor Sew In - Nov 11, 10:30-4:30pm

Come and sew for Quilts of Valor. We are going to have some fun sewing for our troops. What better way to honor those who serve, on Veteran's Day, than to make blocks for Quilts of Valor. All blocks are going to be a 12 1/2 inch star block. You can bring your own favorite star block or use some of the ones we have selected. We will be providing all the fabrics and Sewing Machines to make the blocks.

We ask you to bring your own sewing supplies, such as scissors, rotary, ruler and small mat. Be sure to identify your own supplies so they don't get mixed up with others.

We will have refreshments.

It's a great day out doing something wonderful for our troops.

The Sew-In for Quilts of Valor will be in the new Pfaff Shop Classroom, at ground level. Veteran's Day is Tues Nov 11, 2008 from 10:30 - 4:30pm. Please let us know that you will be sewing with us, so we can plan for the refreshments.

Oktoberfest Sat Oct 25, 2008, 11-2 pm

We are so excited that we moved into our new space. The week was so busy moving the Pfaff Shop from the back space to the front space. Everything has come together nicely and all hands worked diligently to make it happen. This weekend is our first annual Oktoberfest. Rain or shine Harry will be under the tent cooking brautworst and pouring root beer from 11am to 2pm. Next best thing to a German Band is our DJ who will be playing German music to get us into the spirit of it all.

Come in and test drive one of the new Pfaff Creative or Expression Sewing Machines and enter a chance to win a iPod Nano. It is preprogramed with sewing information and you can do what you like with it. I have never had one and am not so sure how to use it, but there are instructions. Just ask any kid and they will show you! We also have great prices on many machines and financing is available up to 48 months depending on the machine.

We are having our Nostalgia Sale where fabric is $7.50 per yard for cottons (min 1 yard). There are some other in-store specials. We have not received the fabric cabinet for the Pfaff shop so we only have fat quarters in the new classroom, some sale fabrics and regular priced kits.

So come out and have a "Braut" on us. We are accepting donations for the Danielle E Liotta Scholarship fund for scholarships for Lake Norman and Mooresville High Schools. Danielle was a wonderful 19 y.o. who lost her life in a tragic traffic accident. In life she did so much for everyone and supported some many charitable events in her short life. She is an inspiration to many and we would like to keep her memory alive with the scholarship funds. Danielle's mother will be with us as we support the scholarship fund.

We are also raising money for the Susan G Komen Foundation as Oct is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Tickets are $1. for a chance to win a pink quilt and the drawing will be November 30, 2008. All proceeds will go to support breast cancer. Help us raise $500 for this worthwhile cause.

Come out and have fun with us on Saturday, rain or shine. "Brauts" are on the grill behind our building under the tent from 11-2pm or until the last guest leaves!
