"SURFACES & TEXTURES" and Quilter's Comfort's Herbal Table

 Hello All,  

Thanks for being here!  Things have been busy in the shop, and weekly friends stop in to say hello!  New relationships are being developed and some things that have been on the table for a while are finally taking on a more finished form.  We hope this means greater stability .  

I am always in appreciation of my team!  Even as life sends us new situations to deal with, we are figuring out how to stay afloat and move forward and simultaneously manage to keep our sense of humor focused lovingly on the present.  We have  regulars that stop in to chat about gardening, share pictures and ideas about food in general.   Some of it will show up on the Herbal Table.

When visitors leave expressing how good the shop feels to them, we know that it is a reflection of us, the teas and all of the other products.  We know that people take some of that feeling home with every purchase.

Ai Takahashi's wonderful photo exhibit is coming to a close and in a few days we will hang the fiber art exhibit mentioned below. 

"SURFACES & TEXTURES", an exhibition of fiber arts, opens Friday June 7, 2013.  Opening Reception is 5:00pm to 8:00pm in the Wellness Arts Gallery located in Patricia’s Wellness Arts Café, 725 West Kirkwood Avenue.  “Surfaces & Textures address the concept of surface design and structure.
