Happy February! Oh
my! Both stores are open today, Tuesday. Anita made her
way up I-135 to the Mall store, and reports that the blowing snow made visibility very
bad, but there was no ice or snow on the road. She may close
early, so phone later this afternoon before venturing out.
Mary & Breckyn
(Newton schools are cancelled) are at the Downtown store. Mary
says that all the Newton streets are plowed, and that there is a
little drifting, but not much.
If you decide to get
out, please take lots of precaution. Throw an EXTRA QUILT in the
car and a bottle of WATER, even if you are just driving in town!
Yesterday I had a
brilliant idea of pinning extra quilts up over those old-fashioned
single-pane windows at the front of the 708 side of the Downtown
store. It made a big difference in the cold draft right
away. So, while I can't promise "cozy", I do believe
the store is "cozier". :)
If you have questions
about anything, feel free to phone either store. 316-284-2547
downtown, 316-804-4660 at the mall.
Mary is filling WEB
ORDERS now. Place an ORDER TODAY and add the word GIFT in
