What fun it was to watch women of all ages, but mostly those of near my age, swoon over a guy who only dresses up like and sounds a little like Elvis Pressley as he performs his routine. It is all imitation of the real thing who is long since deceased, but fun to remember and pretend. "Elvis" spent most of his breaks between shows at Heirlooms with Sue, Kathy, and Sara preparing scarves and teddy bears to hand out to his audience and singing a little phrase or two from his repertoire. He even watched a video of the real Elvis just before returning to the stage for his second show. It was quite fun to see the behind the scenes of a professional impersonator and hear some of his real-life stories about Elvis fans.
If you missed the fun and the historic tours and the train museum and the other attractions in Central on Saturday, be sure to mark your calendar now for April 27, 2013, for the next Central Railroad Festival. Who knows, some year there could even be a marvelous quilt show with train quilts!!
At Heirlooms & Comforts this week we will feature Clean Off the Bolt all week. This is the time to get 25% off a regular price fabric when you buy all that remains on a bolt - whether it is two yards or 20 yards. If your choice is to buy all that remains on a sale price bolt you get an extra 10% off. Think backings this week, or think main fabric and borders. This is the time to save for that big project.
The class schedule for classes at Heirlooms & Comforts is now on-line as of last week. Look it over for what is happening this summer and call us soon to be sure to get into the session you want to have. Completed registration (paying the tuition) holds your place. When we reach the maximum number of registrants for any particular class we have to close off sign-ups for that class. Don't delay.
