Upcoming Events

YIKES…we made a mistake! If you were in the shop September 26th, 27th, 28th or 29th, and purchased one of our kits for the Falling Leaves Shop Hop row ($5.95) the brown fabric included in our kit is not large enough. You will need an additional 7” square. Please call The Calico Shoppe 715–834–9990 or stop in, so we can get you your 7” square of brown for the basket. Also please accept our apology and sorry for any inconvenience.

A special Thank You to everyone who participated in our 2014 “Falling Leaves Shop Hop”! We had a blast, hope you did too.
