Before we all get too involved in our holiday plans, we here at The JaM Patch, would like to extend our warmest holiday wishes for a Happy and Joyful Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for all of you and thank you for your support and business. In these trying economic times, it is wonderful to have all of you to support us and to help us stay here. We are so excited to have a larger classroom for you to enjoy. We hope you are as excited and tell us by taking classes or participating in our various activities. If you haven't seen it yet, wait.....you will be excited, too.
Because we know we are all too busy we thought we would send this out early this week so you can sit and enjoy our newsletter before the holidays. We have some wonderful gift ideas. There is the fabulous new cutting system called Accu-Go. This will make your cutting easier and more accurate. Our demo system is in our old classroom for you to take a look at, even take a turn or two to try out the cutting. It is not inexpensive but it is worth the money. And if you get a system, there are easy gifts for the rest of the family to buy-----more dies. We will be happy to assist you in selecting gifts for Guild exchanges, we have some great ones from $10.00 to $15.00. We also have lots of little "stocking stuffers" for those sewing friends and family. We also have any denomination gift certificates, what better gift to give or receive.
Just wanted to let you know we will be open our normal hours during the Thanksgiving Weekend. We will be closed Thanksgiving Day. We will be open on Friday, November 27th from 10 to 4 and Saturday, November 28th from 9:30 to 4. Remember Saturday, is Saturday Sampler day to flash your completed block. We are holding the presentation at 10 AM in the Classroom Annex. There will be no noon (12 o'clock) presentation. There is plenty of room for the entire group to meet.
If you have a little time to spare before the end of the year we do have several classes offered by our great teaching staff. We have a few that you and friends can spend the day sewing, giggling and actually getting a project done. "A girls day out!!" We have included the November and December calendar in this email. The 2010 offerings will be sent in the next email.
This is a picture of “Strip Tubing” that is available December 7th and is taught by Jeri Ferguson. It is all day and costs $35.00.
If an article of clothing is what you want than Susan Shaffer has the class for you “Noelle Jacket”. It begins on December 1st and runs for 3 Tuesdays and you will have a wonderful jacket. Susan has worn hers all over the world. Here is a picture from the pattern designer.
Kathy is doing a class on Kaleidoscopes and how to use the computer program. The sample is a wonderful table runner done with botanical pictures.

Kathy will also be offering “Banana Leaf”, her original pattern. The class includes the pattern and is $30.00.
