Easter Opening Hours

17 Apr

Hi Everyone

Now all the excitement of the Royal visit has calmed down, I am sure there are lots of us who would like to get ‘stuck in’ to our latest patchwork and quilting projects, it seems that if you are not going away for the long weekend that this is the time to do it.

So Sawmillers will be open on Saturday 19th and also on Monday 21st April, whilst a lot of quilt fabrics close on Easter Monday, we shall be here and by we I mean the Official Greeters and me and of course Stonestead will be open throughout the long weekend except Good Friday for all those yummy scones and Home Made Jams.

So call and see us all, whilst it may be wet and miserable outside, it is toasty warm inside the shop and there is lots to see including the forthcoming class samples.

Have a great Easter and we shall look forward to seeing you,

Until next time Happy Quilting
