Wheeee doggie! It's Fall, y'all. And what a perfect time to get back into the swing of quilting. It's a hoppin' at the shop. Our OESD event this weekend is sold out. (insider tip, we WILL extend event pricing on machines to non-event people. winkie winkie.) And next weekend we have the Handi Quilter Hands-on event. A few spaces are still available there!

Not only that, we are bursting at the seams with fabric again. I am starting to hear the "You need a bigger store" comments. LOL. Izzy was asking if we could put some stuff 70% off so it goes home with you. But you know I love it. ;-)

Today's Highlights:

  • Tomorrow is the last day for $0 down 0% for 60 month financing with Bernina.
  • The Trade-In Sale goes through the end of the month
  • Get in on the Christmas Celebration with FREE designs from OESD with purchase of stuff you need anyway
  • Don't miss that hands-on Handi Quilter event! Scroll down to see a video to get you inspired!
  • We have two FREE virtual events with DIME coming up. The first is next week!
  • The next Monday Night Live is Christmas in September! (Why should July get all the glory?)
  • September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. Please know the symptoms

Love you to pieces! Really, Honestly, Truly,

As you may know, I have ovarian cancer. I am fighting with all my might and thanks to new doctors, I am feeling great and thankful for every today and all my tomorrows.

I am on a mission to be sure the women I love know the symptoms. From the list below, I only had weight gain and getting full quickly (which of course I welcomed because I was gaining weight! Dah!). We know our own bodies, please listen to yours.

These are the symptoms of ovarian cancer. If you feel you have any, have the conversation with your doctor. Frankly if you know something isn't right, talk to your doctor. Don't put it off because early detection can make all the difference.

Main symptoms:

  • Swelling of the stomach, sudden weight gain, or bloating
  • Persistent pelvic or abdominal pain or pressure
  • Trouble eating or feeling full quickly
  • Feeling the need to urinate urgently or often

Other symptoms can include:

  • Feeling very tired all the time
  • Upset stomach or heartburn
  • Back pain
  • Pain during sex
  • Constipation
  • Unusual vaginal bleeding

For more information, go to and a local group called As with all cancers, the sooner they catch it, the better. And don't let your doctors tell you it's a UTI if it's not!
