    I found this little poem while sorting my mother's papers recently.  May it bring you a bit of joy, like it did for me -- Doris (webmistress)

    She learned to quilt on Monday.
    Her stitches were very fine.
    She forgot to thaw out dinner,
    so we went out to dine.

    She quilted miniatures Tuesday.
    She said they are a must.
    They really were quite lovely,
    but she forgot to dust

    On Wednesday it was a sampler.
    She says the stippling's fun.
    What highlights! Oh, what shadows!
    But the laundry wasn't done.

    Her charm quilt was on Thursday.
    Green, blue, and red.
    I guess she really was engrossed.
    She never made the bed.

    It was wall hangings on Friday,
    in colors she adores.
    But she never seemed to notice
    the crumbs on all the floors.

    I found a maid on Saturday!
    My week is now complete.
    My wife can quilt the hours away;
    The house will still be neat.

    Well, it's already Sunday.
    I think I'm about to wilt.
    I cursed, I raved, I ranted.
    The MAID has learned to QUILT!!!

    What sad news!  See below for a message from Hilly's.

    Dear quilters,

    It is with a heavy heart that we must announce Hilly’s Quilts will be closing the retail side of business.   The current plan is to re-open after New Years, with long arming services and a new Sewing Room that will be available for rental by appointment.  We would like to thank all the loyal customers that have become good friends and/or family over the past 25 years.  Sadly, we must empty out the entire store no later than December 31, 2023.  All inventory and fixtures will need to be gone.

    Starting December 1, 2023, the below, will be available and priced as marked:

    • Fixtures
    • Quilt samples
    • Decorations/decor
    • As well as other business-related items and many other odds and ends

    So, if there are any quilt samples, decorations or fixtures you have admired over the years, now is the time to get them.

    If you have quilts that you plan to give for Christmas presents this year that need long-arming, the deadline is approaching. Please get your quilts in by Monday, November 27.

    While we are no longer issuing gift cards, if you have any Hilly’s Quilts gift cards they will be honored until the shop closes.

    Discount days such as Senior Thursday and Quilt Back Tuesday have been discountinued.

     Once again, we would like to thank everyone for their support and loyalty over the years.  We will keep you updated as we move forward.

     Let’s all keep stitching,

    Hilly’s Quilts
