First, let me apologize for being so late with this newsletter. I can't believe that the last time I did one, was March 10th! I swear that the time just keeps going by faster and faster or maybe I'm just getting slower and slower (notice I did NOT say older!) and don't realize it (LOL!)!
We've been very busy here at Blue Iris and that makes me a very happy camper. We had our Bunny Hop in March along with Stitch by Stitch and The Sewing Room and it was a huge success. Everyone who participated had a great time and we had a lot of really cute and creative bunnies to show off. We also had a lot of great classes going on in March and April so the creativity was definitely flowing here at the shop. Going into May, we are continuing forward with more fun and creative classes and it's not to late to sign up for some of them. We had some fun fabric lines that have come in and also a lot of new Batiks and the shelves are filling up! Additionally, we've brought in some more pre-cuts to help out with those fast and quick quilt tops we all love to do!
If you visit our website, you will notice that our page has changed. We made this change so that our site would be more responsive when people search for quilt shops in our area. Now we are the 1st one listed when searching for shops near Redding and no matter weather you're using a lap top, a tablet or Ipad, or your phone, the content or our site will look the same. In other words, you won't have to scroll to see the whole site, you will see it all without any further actions on your part. Exciting stuff in the technical world.............just sayin! We are still making some changes so bear with us during our construction period...that's all I ask.
