Keeping you in the loop

Winter definitely seems to have settled in to Western New York this week! This time of year always seems to be LONG and BLAND. I feel like the pandemic has added a whole new level of “stay home and watch Netflix” to our lives as well. If you’re looking for something else to do with your time, we’ve got a plan coming together for you! Here’s a snapshot of what we’re working on to get your imagination working, and give you some ideas of what to look forward to. We will be offering many of our classes via zoom, so if you’re still choosing the “stay home” plan, we’ve got something for you as well. Stay tuned via email and Social Media to see when sign ups will begin and what our final schedule will be.

One thing we HAVE finalized is our February Retreat. If you’ll be joining us, YAY! We can’t wait to sew with you. If not, we’ll miss you! The shop will be closed from Thursday until Saturday this week, so if you’re planning to drop in for your Valentine Weekend sewing needs, please do so on Tuesday or Wednesday.

We won’t be gone long, and when we get back, it’ll be time to CELEBRATE one of our favorite precuts. The OG of precuts, the Fat Quarter!

If you’re new to quilting, or haven’t picked up on all the lingo yet, a fat quarter is basically a half of a half yard. It’s a piece of fabric that measures about 18” by 22” and is great for all sorts of projects. Whether you’re working on a lap quilt, or a tablerunner, or simply desire to have a little bit of every fabric in a line by your favorite designer, a fat quarter is a great thing to collect.

We’ll be open late next Tuesday (until 6) so you’ll have plenty of time to stock up on fat quarters for your next quilting or sewing project. In the meantime, why not go through your books and patterns and check out all the possibilities for these sweet squares?

Speaking of closing, and staying open late, it’s been a while since I shared our normal hours, so if you were wondering when you could stop by and browse, wonder no more:

Again…the shop will be closed at the end of this week, but will open up next Tuesday with a FQ celebration! Keep an eye out on social for our class/events schedule…we can’t wait to see you!!

Happy Sewing,

Tara
