It's almost FEBRUARY!

Wow.... I swear we just finished with Christmas!  Where did the month of January fly to?  Vicky and I have been in Dallas and Atlanta over the past three weeks helping our friends (from K & K Interiors) in their show rooms.  What fun we have... it's so great to see the entire group once a year and hear how their year has gone.  Then we get to chat with customers that come back to us year after year to order new merchandise for their shops!  The showrooms were so "over the top" this year.... the most gorgeous I've seen them.  The stylists work so hard to make everything look so wonderful for the customer... they are the behind the scenes folks and deserve a lot more recognition than what it seems we all give them!  It's a true talent to take merchandise and mix it all together so it is simply impossible to NOT want to order everything!

Now that we are back home... it's down to business here!  We have a busy next few months...whew!  First thing... our Camp Blanding February Retreat!  Oh yes... we are ready to hang out with our CB group and get some fun sewing finished.

The dates (in case you haven't enrolled as of today) are from February 27 - March 1, 2020.  We also have been assigned lodging!  Mark this date and time on your calendar, phone, ipad, so you will remember.... Sunday, February 2 at 7:00 pm.  Sign on to our website:  

and then move to the LODGING area on the site (look to the right side) and pick out your choice:

Single Lodging:    Thursday night - $30 per person       Friday & Saturday night - $60 per person      (These are the Jack-n-Jill units.  If you are wanting a room beside you for your friend - ONLY ONE OF YOU NEEDS TO PURCHASE LODGING FOR BOTH OF YOU.  When I see one person purchasing two rooms - I automatically place your rooms side by side to share the bathroom.  The single units have a small refrigerator and a microwave.

Cottage Lodging:    Thursday night - $90         Friday & Saturday night   - $180
(Cottages have two bedrooms.  One has a queen bed and the other has two twin beds.  It also has a living room, full kitchen (with limited dishes, etc.), bathroom and eating area)

If you have any questions prior to signing up for lodging, please call me at 9045-742-1100.  

I'll chat with you later on what else is happening at the Olde Green Cupboard and with the Parsons' family!  It's gonna be a fun year!

One of my 2020 goals is to be more active on my blog and on the website with items that we've made, designed or love.... so you can can have them in your home or studio and love them as much as we do!

It's time for Registration - February Camp Blanding!

Good morning to everyone!!

It's time to register for February 2020 Camp Blanding

Happy New Year!!!

The holiday is over and it's now time for some sewing fun!  If you have not registered for the February 27 - March 1, 2020 Camp Blanding Retreat... now is the time. 
Go to this link:     Scroll down the page and you will see where you can download and print the registration form!  Then complete and mail with your $75 check and we'll get you all registered.

Lodging will not be available until later this month... or the first of February.  I will send you an email with the date and time of when you will go to our website and purchase.  If you have not purchased lodging before, instructions will also be sent to you so there are no surprises on how it all works.

Also remember... if you are wanting to be in the February SALE room to note that in the appropriate area on the registration form.

I will be out of town (leaving Sunday) with Vicky - headed to Dallas, TX and Atlanta to work the Home & Gift Shows.  I can be reached by email which I check and answer each evening.  We cannot accept phone calls while working. 

We are also in the process of getting a new website host so it will be changing at the end of January.  I'm sure it will be "seamless" to all of you since they normally take the transition over and make it easy for those of you that receive messages from me and visit the site.  Keep your fingers crossed it goes well.

If you have any questions, let me know.  Have a great January... Chat with you soon!
