July 1 already--Happy Canada Day. Do you realize that in 6 months’ time we’ll be celebrating the start of another year—that’s crazy! We’ve been having some fun decorating our store for our Christmas in July classes and sale – yes, we even have a tree up! Santa will be in the store giving out treats to our customers on Saturday, July 2. This is, after all, Santa’s slow time at the Pole.
If you haven’t been in the store in a bit, we would love to have you come see our store makeover. We have changed things up, moved things around and now have brighter lighting, wider aisles and more fabric selection. We’ve been pretty pumped to show the new look off, and will be sharing pictures soon on our website and on Google. We’d love to hear your comments!
Here is a rundown of our July classes, some of which we still have a few spots left:
