HELLO everyone and HELLO Fall!
I hope that all is well with everyone and that you are enjoying the beautiful weather! I would like to personally thank everyone who came out, messaged or called us to congratulate us on our 2 Year Anniversary! It was a busy and exciting day for us and we couldn't do it without you and we look forward to many more years and many more new relationships! Again, Thank you to each of you for your support, we can not do it without you and our staff! 

With a lot of hard work and many hours, we have finally got the new room open and ready for your shopping pleasures! We will be adding fabric into it today and Oh' I must admit.... I LOVE it!

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

SEWCIALIZING - SHOW AND TELL!!!!  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.

Saturday October 6th, 2018 

Immediately following Show and Tell....
 Sue Fox will be our quest speaker and will be giving a lecture on Understanding Needles and Threads. This will be a informative lecture and no machines needed; and better yet, it is FREE!
Mark your calendars for Saturday October 6th! Arrive at 9:30am for Show and Tell and Sue's presentation will follow Show and Tell. 
Please sign-up in advance for this Free lecture. We hope to see you here!
