Thanksgiving is in sight...

Veteran’s Day has past and Thanksgiving is in sight.  For many of us, Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday.  Maybe it’s the great food but more likely it’s time spent with family and friends.   We start on the pies first thing in the morning watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. Are there bands or cloggers from Nebraska in the parade?  After the feast, there is the walk around the neighborhood, the card game, left over turkey sandwiches, and a car ride in the evening to see the first Christmas lights. 

It’s a Beck tradition to save Friday after Thanksgiving for Nebraska football.  The Cornhuskers and Hawkeyes will meet in Lincoln for the first Heroes Rivalry game.  Even though I’m both a University of Nebraska graduate and a University of Iowa graduate, I’ll be pulling for the Cornhuskers.   Other staff members of I Love Sewing, LLC spend Friday shopping and shopping and shopping…so we will be closed on both Thursday, November 24th and Friday, November 25th.   We will reopen with regular hours (9am – 5pm) on Saturday, November 26th. 

If you need a break away from home and from shopping, join us on Sunday, November 27th from 1 – 4pm for the “Screen Play” Tote bag class.    Check our website or call our store for additional information.

New fabrics, patterns, and projects were ordered at the Houston Quilt Market and are now starting to arrive to the store.  On the horizon is our move into the new addition. We hope to be settled in by the end of the year.  Come in for a sneak peak.

Have a safe Thanksgiving.
