And the Winner is....

We were so surprised to learn that Bear Patch had a winner in the 8 Weeks to Win 30 Ways Bernina Sweepstake. Here is Barb with some of the goodies that went along with her new machine! Congratulations Barb!

Fun Days

Every once in a while I get to just be Grandma Debbie. I had fun at Aiden's Farm Pre-school open house. We got to feed all the baby animals, check out his class room and meet his teachers. I wish I could join in this fabulous program! Bob and I also were able to go to Gracies Kindegarten Open House. What fun! After a musical program of grades K-4 we visited her classroom and had home-made cookies! Just can't leave Brody out. He was busy showing us how to trim the grass he planted at his pre-school!

Creative Craft Crawl

Have you joined us yet for Creative Craft Crawl? Mark your calendar for the 3rd Friday of each month and come downtown between 10 am and 3 pm. 7 stores have hands on crafts and demos for nominal fees. Our May project was a fun wallet from Debbie Bowles of Maple Island. Don't miss out- we promise you will love our June project!

Shop Hop 2009

Shop Hop 2009 was a lot of fun. We had guest designers each day- Linda Hohag, Terry Atkinson, Pam Hansen, Stacy West, and Mary Herschleb. Bouquet Day was during Shop Hop- we gave away 350 orange Gerbera flowers! Make sure you come in and see the new books and patterns from each of these designers!
