Adding to cart… The item has been added

Summer is finally here and we are so excited to be hosting our favorite event again! Our shop is the middle of nowhere, we like to say. In fact you can see the cows grazing, right down the road, so you could say we have that down home, rustic, Old Tattered Flag feeling, the moment you enter our shop.

What is the 8th Annual Gathering of Friends Hook-In?

It is a wonderful day of hooking and punching, stitching, laughing, sharing inspiration, shopping with talented artisan vendors, a rug and punch needle show and contest, delicious food, lots of door prizes, and a shop full of goodies and more!
