July 2018 Newsletter / Calendar

Hello everyone! As always, I'm going to open this News Letter with the weather as the opening topic, WOW..... It has been scorching HOT outside and we finally got some much needed rain! I for one, am so very thankful for Willis Carrier who invented the Air Conditioning system in 1902! According to,
"Not long after Carrier invented his game-changing air conditioning machine, a mill engineer named Stuart Cramer created a similar ventilating device to add water vapor to the stifling air inside of textile plants. While Cramer was the second person to develop such a device, he was the first to coin the term "air conditioning" to describe the purpose of his invention."
There you have it Ladies and gentleman, the textiles "fabric's" we love played a key role into the invention of the cooling comforts we enjoy today.

 We once again have some very exciting news..... On June 1st, we took possession of yet another space in our building and
we  are
Although our expansion has already begun, it will be a slow process and we are looking forward to providing our customers with more space and even more new and beautiful fabrics to choose from.

"Sew What" is Happening in the
Shoppe in July  .......

SEWCIALIZING - SHOW AND TELL!!!! I don't know about you, but I LOVE Show and Tell. It is my favorite part of quilt meetings.  We will host it one time each month and we will have Donuts or
Bagels, Orange Juice and Coffee available. Please bring something for show and tell and, if you do, you will receive 20% off one regular priced item purchased that day. 20% off sale can not be combined with any other sales. Please feel free to bring a friend along, even if they do not sew! We want this to be a fun and joyful time so please bring any jokes or stories along also. You are welcome to come without a show and tell item, but won't be eligible for the 20% discount.
