Sue and her staff would like to wish MaryJane future success in her new employment position. She worked with us at Country Treasures for seven years! We will all miss MaryJane very much as she was a vital part of our Country Treasure family.
We welcome new staff member, Jim Adams, to our shop. Jim will be working Tuesday through Friday 9am to 1pm. He is a Chester resident. Jim has many talents, including performing with several orchestras in southern Vermont and New Hampshire, for which he plays oboe, English horn and Oboe d’Amore. He is contributing his computer and organizational skills to help us with our shop management. We extend a warm welcome to Jim who is presently acclimating himself to his new responsibilities!
We are receiving beautiful new fabrics in daily! Yesterday our new line of cozy corduroy fabric came in and it is just scrumptious!!!
The shop is carrying another batting from Fairfield American Spirit. It is a luxury blend batting, 50% Rayon from Bamboo and 50% Natural Cotton. We have just crib and queen sizes right now. Carolyn has tested it and is delighted to tell you it is now one of her favorites. It is great to work with machine quilting and hand quilting. Estimated shrinkage is 2-3% and no need to presoak.
Please review our many class schedules and join us for a fun filled six weeks of classes available to get you through the cold month of January and February!! Samples of the classes are on our website as well as in the shop.
Yours in quilting,
Sue and staff
