2013 Nashville Needlework Market...SNEAK PEEK!

The 2013 Needlework Market in Nashville is coming up fast (March 1-3, 2013). Peggy and Carol can't wait to go and have fun shopping. There will be lots to see and only 2 days to do it. Since this is a cash and carry show, they will be able to bring home their purchases (no need to wait on UPS). If there is something that you would like for them to get for you, please let the shop know so that Peggy can add it to her shopping list. Need some ideas? Visit the home page of our website and click on Nashville Sneak Peek to look at a few of the new patterns that will be releasing in Nashville. I am also going to blog about some other new things that will be there but are some new things that are already on the way.
