June Newsletter

It’s getting close to beach time, and that means a week of closing at 3pm.  June 10th through June 17th we will close early.

  We had a wonderful time in the mountains.  If you ever want to get away, real peace and quiet this is the place to go!!!  No cell phone service though with an apple phone we could text.  The first morning we hiked up the hill to the main road to see if we had phone service. On the way, we found an old road and explored it.  That done we continued up to the top, there were huge boulders on the side of the road and decided to take selfies, by the time we were done, we were hungry for lunch so we hiked back down. It was so steep if felt like your toes were going to come out of the front of your tennis shoes. Sitting on the back porch relaxing with full bellies we realized we forgot to check our phones for service.  So, the next morning back up to the main road we went. Thank goodness, we had service, we could call our daughter to check on Eli.  He had come down with a bad stomach virus in the wee hours early Sunday morning and we were very concerned.  Alisha assured us after the initial bout he was just sleeping.  In fact, he slept for two days and by Tuesday morning it was time he went to the doctor.  He takes “must have” medication every day and though he was sleeping he wasn’t eating just drinking Gatorade and needed something on his stomach to take them.  He’s so much better now but in the process of getting better he shared it with Mitch who spent much of last Friday experiencing all that virus had to give and then some.  Mitch slept most of Saturday and I was by myself at the quilt shop.  Anyway, I am looking forward to going to the beach and this time we are taking Eli with us!!

This is a 6-week class.  So, come in and sign up!

Sound of the Woods                          Saturday June 27th                 10:30 to 4:30

This is the first of Christmas classes planned.  The fabric is from Robert Kaufman.  Beautiful neutrals in exciting winter quilt that doesn’t say Christmas per say.  You could leave this one out all winter long!  Lola is in the process of making the sample.  Fabric is now in the shop.  Cost of class is $40.00. Half an hour for lunch bring lunch or go out.  This should be lots of fun.

Betty Sue’s is so proud to be partnering with “Quilts for Kids”!

You can now pick up a kit or drop off a finished quilt and Betty Wright will pick them up.  This is such a rewarding Service as these quilts go to Northeast Ga Med Center Gateway Domestic Violence Center Family Promise of Hall County.

So if you have not heard of “Quilts for Kids”, we have leaflets explaining what they are all about, or you can go to www.NeGaQuiltsforkids.org

Come in and pick up a kit and make a child happy!!!
