Tourists are starting to arrive at the Jersey Shore as we are unofficially into summer here. School isn't out yet, graduations are happening (my sweet Nathan had his "moving on" ceremony this week from pre-school. Can't believe he'll start kindergarten in September!), and the ocean is still a bit cool - but we're ready for the BEACH!

Speaking of the beach, we've been working like crazy to get samples done for our summer display called Beach Glamping. It will go up the 23rd and you'll have to come see it! My friend Kelly Ann who has a shop in Virginia and I have been egging each other on with our glamping display plans (glamping is a glamorous/vintagy form of camping). I think she's gone a little crazier than I have but we did both draw the line at renting a vintage camper or even making up a fake front of one! I have a few hints about what will be in the display further in the newsletter but I will say, I'm having a blast collecting things for my camping at the beach display.

The Row By Row Experience™ starts for 50 states and 9 Canadian provinces and territories on June 21st. 2700+ stores will be participating this summer and every one of them will be handing out a free row. We'll be unveiling our sample on the 23rd since we will be closed to celebrate Father's Day on the 21st and we're always closed on Mondays anyway. So we'll be a few days later than the official kick off but plan to come see our row and our display too! And to plan your trip, here is a map showing ALL of the participating shops - click here. Keep clicking on the plus sign on the right to make the map more detailed and you can unclick the areas you don't want to see on the left. Have fun!

New classes are up on the website. Click here to see. There is still room in Pat Sloan's workshops the first week in October, call the shop for details or click here.

Don't forget to check our Facebook page every Monday night to see what our weekly special is as we celebrate turning TWENTY all month. This week all machine feet and accessories are 25% off! Sorry, we are not allowed to mail feet or accessories.

Also remember that every $10 you spend in the shop or online gets you a ticket for our Sample Auction (with TWENTY samples up for auction!). Click here for details.

The ConKerr Cancer gang will be here this month on Saturday the 27th. Come sew, press, cut or all three - they love to have help! Fabric or finished pillowcase donations are greatly appreciated also.

We had a great event at the shop last Saturday - Aunt Reen came up from VI to speak at our 13 Months of Jane Open House and wowed the crowd!  Doreen gave a wonderful presentation - complete with two quilts! - on the history of the Dear Jane quilt and also on the program we will be running for our Dear Jane Club.  

I cracked open my EQ Dear Jane software today, printed off the first 13 patterns and cut out my blocks.  I've started my own Dear Jane journey!  I alternated between thinking I was out of my mind with all these blocks and being excited get make the quilt.  The jury is still out on whether I'm crazy or not, but I'm hoping next March I'll be posting a picture of my completed Dear Jane quilt!

The blocks aren't intimidating me but I admit - those triangles, hmmmm.

23 Janiacs signed up to take this journey with me and there is still time for you to join us.  Click here for more information!

Month 1 is all cut out.

Until next time.
