Updates from the Patch

Well, Fall is here and we are so excited to soon be seeing our Winter Visitors.  We call them Snowbirds.  They leave their homes up north and spend the winter with us just like our feathery friends.  We love to see them again and to see all the things they have done over the summer.  This is our first official WELCOME!!!

The Patch currently smells a little like a candy corn factory and I won’t tell you how many bags we have already consummed here.  I think there are secretly more candy corn lovers out there than are willing to admit to it.  I have not sworn them off for the season yet because I am pacing myself.  Hurrah!!! for candy corns and mellow pumpkins.

The excitement here is what our teachers are presenting for various classes this fall.    We have dedicated the month of October to Quilting and we are offering quite a few classes on the technique of quilting.  We decided that while the quilting world is in Houston, our little corner of it will be at the Patch learning about quilting as a beginner and then expanding your knowledge as you get more antsy to improve your skill.  Okay, now many of you might be thinking “Oh, I just give them to my Long Arm Quilter.”  But there is always that special one that you want to do yourself.  Well, this is the week to come to the patch…..October 12th – 15th.  Here is the schedule:
