What the changing seasons mean for you!!! The Nebraska Shop Hop and talking turkey for the guys!

The changes of seasons can be a metaphor of your life, family life, or could be in the lovely month of April. One day you have on flip flops and the next you're kicking those aside for snow boots, and finally, digging out the umbrella for the anticipated and longed for April Showers.

Which coincide nicely with the theme for this year's Nebraska Independent Fabric Shops 18th annual Shop Hop held April 7-16, 2016, with the theme Seasons Sewn.

It's also a manly time...for the guys to get together and talk turkey - for real! Turkey season is now open for the guys and was proclaimed by our Governor to be one of the best places to see them in all their spring glory!

So get together and head out to the Sandhills of Nebraska, specifically, Valentine, and stop off at the Quilting Cupboard where you'll find the specially printed fabric panel along with coordinating prints of the Seasons Sewn collection.

Each shop is independently owned along the route, so each has a personality and flavor all the
their own. The further you head west the more relaxed you'll become and the people are so welcoming!

The Quilting Cupboard is located at 130 W. Fourth Street - make sure you park in the parking lot, not along the highway! Hubbies...head down the block to Berry Creek Gun and Pawn, stock up and hunt the hills!

There are scenic highways to make your travels beautiful, and the baby calves will be out to greet you shortly, if they aren't already. Grasses are turning green...right before your eyes!
