New Table Runner of the Month Starts in January

20131218-135248.jpg

We are pleased to announce a Table Runner of The Month program for 2014.

The table runners will be moderately priced, in various sizes, and assorted colors over the months. They will be available each month on the first of the month. Some months the kits will include coordinating binding. Also, some months will have a limited number of pre-cut backings available for a separate purchase (also on the first of the month).

We will have a limited number of runner kits available for each month; so we will NOT be able to take names/reservations for the runners.

We will be featuring runners from the book “Set the Table.” We may repeat some popular patterns in other colors.

Stop by the store to check it out. The January runner is in the first photo above and kits will be available for sale beginning January 2, 2014 (store closed on New Year’s Day).
