GREAT NEWS!!! THE SHOP IS SOLD!!!
We are excited to announce that Jeri Daniel
has decided to purchase Blue Iris.
Jeri moved here last fall from southern California. She is very excited about the shop and has lots of new, fun ideas. She will make the Blue Iris even better than it already is. Jeri loves Batiks and brights so the basics of the shop will be the same, but she will be adding new fabrics, classes, and techniques. We know that you will not be disappointed with the change of ownership. Jeri will offically take over ownership on April 1st.
Please mark you calendar for Sat, Mar 22nd. We are going to have a "Meet Jeri" reception from 10am - 5pm. We will have goodies to sample and we will also have a "Tax Free Zone." Which means that we will pay the sales tax on all of your purchases that day.
** SPRING BLOCK CHALLENGE **
We have started another block challenge. We give you a 7" x 9" piece of green fabric. You use spring colors from your stash to make a 12-1/2" x 12-1/2" unfinished block of your choice. All blocks need to be turned in before 4pm on April 19th. We will draw the winners at 4pm that day. The number of winners will depend on how many blocks are turned in. We always have such beautiful blocks!
We also have some great classes scheduled for March:
