Have you made plans to attend the Illinois State Fair? I always enjoy going and especially the fair food!
We have received lots of new Fall and Halloween fabrics. Now is the time to get started on those fall projects. Shop early for the best selection! You have to see (and touch) these beauties to really appreciate them.
