Antoinette’s NEWS – August 2017 GREETINGS from the Gals at Antoinette’s! And here is August! Can you believe how fast this year has been flying? We are sure it doesn’t help that those quilting projects keep piling up with all the new ideas we have from the various shop hops this summer. Just think, in a few weeks, the days will be turning cooler, the kids will be back in school, and your schedule will open up for more time to sew! Lots of things are going on in the next couple of months here at the shop. We hope you are able to join us for the fun! Read on to see what we have in store for you! Project Fresh Start We again are a collection point for the Project Fresh Start program. The purpose of this program is to provide necessary school supplies to students in Portage County in need. Last year more than 1000 students received necessary school supplies through this amazing program. Below is a list of the school supplies that the program is collecting. For those that bring supplies in between now and August 15th, you will receive a coupon for 25% off a total purchase of $25 or more in the month of September (some exclusions apply).
