Ya Ya Sisterhood

Ya Ya Sisterhood at Thanksgiving point is a really fun girls night out. If you haven't been you need to go next year around the 3rd week in October. There's great food, gifts, and lots of fun women dressed in great hats and dresses. My friend Suzanne Lawrence does a quilt show during this event. It helps to warm the night.

We're hoping it will be a great marketing tool for the stores to sell Riley Blake Designs fabric because you can cut kits by looking at the fabric requirements that have the pictures of the fabric and you already have the project patterns. You could purchase more books to put in the kits. There's also a 2 page layout of the fabrics wit…
