Every year about this time, we have Shop Girls Day Out. It's kind of our holiday party - - after the holidays calm down and all of the snowbirds return to Iowa.
This event is for the Shop Girls, the gals that help in and around the shop all year long. We gather somewhere that they can be the guests, stitching, dining and chatting.
This year, we gathered at LaPoste in Perry.
|Colleen E is a busy gal but she always finds time to work in the shop a couple days each month. As one of the owners of LaPoste in Perry, Colleen volunteered the venue for our Shop Girls Day Out. If you have not heard about LaPoste, check it out. |
The first floor is a spectacular area for large meetings and events. The lower level, lovingly called The Cellar, is where they host live music and an easy supper buffet every Thursday evening, 5 to 8 pm. I am always up for going to their Thursday evening event if anyone wants a tag along. Thank you, Colleen!
|This is a quilt Julia made with her granddaughters. She did the stitching as the girls selected and handed her pieces, based on their choice of what to add next.|
|My long time friend, Patty S, is working on her hand applique. She is my wing man, often helping me brain storm ideas and set up/tear down events. We started our day with a delicious pan of cinnamon rolls, still warm from her kitchen. Thanks, Patty!|
