Sorry ... yet another snow prediction and another delay in opening date ...

Sorry ... more snow predicted later this week, so Quilters' Quarters will remain on winter hiatus until Spring makes more than a brief appearance. The barn has been so cold for so long that it will take a sustained sixty degree spell of several days to allow the building to warm up to a tolerable level. See you later this month ... Now looking toward the middle of April ... maybe Thursday April 19th? Or, perhaps by Mothers' Day weekend in May? Only time and temp will tell...

Leprechaun's are influencing Mother Nature's temperament this year

The vernal equinox, March 21-22, has always been 'the first day of Spring." But the network meterorologists began 'simplifying' the calendar a decade or so ago, proclaiming it 'easier' to label Spring as beginning on March 1st ... and, ever since they brazenly ignored the revolution of the earth's path around the sun, winter has taken a later, not earlier, hold on our portion of the planet (and yes, the north and south poles do move gradually every year.) Seems to me that Spring weather (which is what meterologists are supposed to be aware of) arrives later rather than earlier ... we've even had snow as late as April Fools Day in recent years ... that may have been Mother Nature's taunt at those weather fools ... her effort at bringing them back to her reality ... and her punishment of the rest of us seems to be her arbitrary shortening of Spring and Fall, and her extension of the blasted heat of summer and the bitter cold of winter ... or maybe that is her collusion with those who choose to live at the highest and lowest latitudes... just sayin' ... I'm going to call Spring the brief four weeks between Tax Day and Mothers' Day ... Let's be real about this. Thanks a lot for ticking her off, meteorololgists...




And so she is threatening another snowstorm this coming week ... which makes re-opening Quilters' Quarters on the first day of spring impractical. There is no heat in the barn. It is presently 40 degrees outside and 30 degrees within. I can't cut fabric with frozen fingers. Customers are not comfortable shopping for fabric and notions while wearing winter coats ... they cannot feel the 'soft hand of quality fabric' while wearing mittens or gloves. Spring is dilly-dallying somewhere else on the planet, and is sorely being missed here.


The revised plan for the re-opening is now set for Thursday, April 5th. My apologies to all ... I clearly have no pursuasive power with Mother Nature, nor with the weather pattern we are enduring here. Three classic nor'easters in the past two weeks? Over two feet of unmelted spring snow? More ahead? Really? Can we all say "Global Warming's Extreme Effects? Or shall we all just blame the foolish meteorologists' tinkering with the calendar date for First Day of Spring (read that: Vernal Equinox.) Apparently, she's offended. 


See you in April?

March came in like a sleepy, grumpy old lion...

February closed with beautiful, Spring-like temperatures ... but wait-a-minute-weather lurks. Strong winds, heavy rains, full moon with accompanying rising tides and coastal flooding brought March's reputation to the forefront on this, it's second morning.

We had replaced the old, worn roof of the barn just three years ago ... the driveway was leveled and paved two years ago, and I had the bough-dropping eighty-foot Eastern white pines removed a year ago. So, short of a heavy wet snow, the shop is okay with whatever our fickle New England / Mother Nature's mood brings our way ...

Come real Springtime, the temperatures will allow comfort in the fabric shop... Looking forward to seeing and sharing new tools and fabrics with you!

It's always six more weeks of winter... the coward!

  The barn without its furnace has been bitterly cold this winter, and my few forays  for fabrics have been brief and expedient ... there will come a day of reckoning when sorting, restacking and display -shuffling will have to occur. But not until we have a span of at least 48 hours above 50 degrees... 'til then, the clutter and dust bunnies will have their way.  

I haven't added much to the contents, but a few items were ordered on request... 
Someone who has added winter weight ...
I ordered extras, just in case.

Nice to have a spare in case you don't have a sharpener...
or time to use it.

Thread Snips ... ordered a dozen as bonus/giveaways ...
apparently ordered twice! Received two dozen!

And, whenever that lazy rodent ever does decide to come out for spring, and the temperature rises to accomodate his wishes, and ours, I'll have a new promotion in store for you ... think of it as a new lending library of sorts ... I mean, of tools! Stay tuned ... and be sure to add your preferred email to our followers' list.


Oh, fabrics...  yes, there will be new Spring fabrics ... some have already arrived ... here's a sneak-peek:

I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU  AT THE MVQG MEETING IN JANUARY

BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THIS WORLD


Well, OKAY!
