THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY HOURS


We are limiting our hours again this week as we encourage everyone to stay home and help slow the spread of COVID within our community and limit our personal contacts.  We are also taking an extra day to be home with our families...although that may seem contradictory to what alot of you have been doing....some of us have been heading out to work most days so this is a chance to relax and and enjoy some time at home - maybe dust off a sewing project or two?!  The website is available 24/7 and we are here for curbside pick-up! 

We are open for walk-in shopping 

 Tuesday - Wednesday - Saturday

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

We are regularly closed Sunday and Monday!



A new little quilt, economy block or square in a square set on point is almost finished - we'll be building a few fabric kits if you're a fan of blue and brown like we are.  We've got some great holiday fabrics in store and on the website and if you're hanging on to these last days of fall, this table runner kit is just the thing!

Store Update and Winter Red & Green

 


Well...it's been a week already don't you think?  With our wet and windy weather, the early evening darkness and our latest COVID restrictions, I guess there's nothing much you can do but sew right?!  

Our path to reopening will continue to evolve and with our website upgrade, we hope you'll consider that method of shopping for increased access to our fabrics and a great option for staying safe as we continue to be limited by COVID restrictions.   We now offer a choice of curbside pickup for online purchases and we can accommodate a larger range of hours for curbside delivery.

We are dialing back on our 'open' hours this week - hoping to keep our team, extended families and you - our customers safe and healthy through this winter season.  We are expanding our options for individual shopping appointments. 

 We will continue to update our shop hours here and on our website so please check back for current information!   If you are in need of a basic - spool of thread, pre-packaged batting or other sewing staple that we stock, please give us a call and we'll do our best to accommodate a speedy curbside pick up! 

We are open for walk-in shopping 

 Tuesday - Saturday 

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

We are open by appointment for individual shopping other times Tuesday - Saturday

We have a few of these Winterland Advent calendar panels available - just fold up the pockets and fill them up!  You're not late yet!  These are listed on our website! 




Hope you are warm and dry and tucked in safely with some stitching!

New Goods and Shop Hours

We've added this group of great reproduction prints recently - Walnut Creek by Julie Hendricksen for Windham Fabrics, and they are on the website.  We also have the stack of 5 inch squares if you want to have a little bit of the entire collection - these are great for English Paper Piecing and applique shapes!  

We finished up a new sample quilt - featuring a pack of precut Tonga batik strips that get you off to a quick start for a fast finish with limited cutting!  We've got this combination as a kit, or packs of precut strips if you have a different favorite strip friendly project in mind.  We added a border to this project to make it a bit larger and backed it with flannel for a perfect fall couch quilt.  




And of course - some perfect project inspiration and fresh ideas are always an option with Quiltmania books and then some new choices from Jen Kingwell too.  These books offer a wide range of style and technique options ranging from applique and english paper piecing techniques to the hand-piecing work that Jen favors.

Store Hours and New Fabric


We caught the afternoon sunlight on this tree across the street from the shop - if you pop by soon, you might find the leaves still on it and the pavement dry!  But then again, more rain means more time for stitching right?!

The latest issue of Quiltfolk is on the shelf - the subject is Family rather than a geographical focus for this issue.  It makes for a great rainy day read!  We've also got some other new Quiltmania books and quilt project books ready to inspire you for some winter sewing!  

 


Some of or most recent additions to the fabric shelves cover all the options - bright and bold as well as lighter florals - some holiday options too.  One of our upgrades to the website - is a search feature so you can find these goodies by the Collection name or 'Holiday' for your Halloween and Christmas favorites!

New Hours

We are taking some time to reevaluate our shop practices and consider what our new path will look like in terms of operating hours and offerings.  Finding a balance between what works for the shop and our modified personal lives with work from home, online school and the various other changes we are all facing means it isn't business as usual.   The relocation of our local homeless shelter to the adjacent city block, along with the state mandates on occupancy levels and mask wearing, COVID sanitizing and social distancing protocols all impact our ability to operate comfortably.  

Our path to reopening will continue to evolve and with our website upgrade, please consider that tool for increased access to our products.   We will continue to update our shop hours here and on our website so please check back for current information! 


We are open by appointment for individual shopping
