Survived the Rally

Christopher busy sewing patches.

  Hello, we have survived the rally.   It was not as big as in the past years but we were busy.
 Christopher was sewing patches on jackets for the first time.  I also helped with the patch sewing. We made a contest of it to see who would sew the most patches.  It was close but I won by 2 patches.  We will be doing patches all year.  Bring on the lettermen's jackets.

  Now that the rally is over, it is time for school thoughts.  Two of my grandsons have started football practice and the rest are school shopping.  It is hard to accept that the summer is almost over.  My youngest son, Nicholas, just finished law school and will be heading to New York University to study tax law.  Looking forward to seeing the grandkid's school activities and maybe a trip to New York. 
  For those of you who like panels, check out the new one that just arrived at the shop.  Click HERE to see what is new.
  Enjoy the rest of your summer and if you get close by, stop in.

August is Motorcycle Rally Time

  In Sturgis, if it is August, it is time for the Black Hills Motorcycle Classic aka Sturgis Rally.  For those who are not aware of what I mean.  Short version:  Sturgis, a town of 6,600 people, plays host to 350,000 to 400,000 motorcyclists.  No, I did not get to many zeros.

  The best part of the rally for me is that some of my grandchildren stay with me so that their parents can work.  Christopher, my son, runs the shop and his wife, Shawn works for the school district, is working at one of the bars for extra money.  I get Owen and Talen for the week and I enjoy having them.
  Because of the rally, Fabric Junction has it's own fabric printed.  Many stop in to get some because it is not found anywhere else.  Here is a sample of one of the current fabrics.
