Feb 27-Hi everyone, I apologize I have been so quiet recently. We are moving from one home to another and are extremely busy. Of course still filling fabric orders, just not posting as much. I am still checking in though to see what ya’ll are up to however. I appreciate your patience with me during yet another transition in my life. m
Feb 4-Well, still hard at it! More and more fabrics are making their way to the Sew And Sews Place etsy site. I hope you are finding it easier to shop there. Please continue to send me your feedback. I do miss seeing ya’ll on a daily basis, your calls and e-mails are the next best thing! I really appreciate your business. m
Jan 22-I didn’t realize I haven’t been posting on here, sorry folks. I have been busy working away on the other pages, promise!
Here is a BIG ANOUNCEMENT!
We are going to back to our roots, sort of. I am slowly moving my fabric listings back to my original shop on etsy, SewAndSews.

We will officially reopen for a fabulous 2014 on Monday, January 6. Be safe and enjoy! m
Dec 18-How is all of your Christmas sewing coming along? Are you finished with your projects? I think I might have to save some until next year.

There is still time to get your order shipped out to favorite seamstress though! We do Gift Certificates! Give us a call or send an email! m
Dec 12-Busy time of year for everyone! Hope you are all in stitches getting ready for Christmas. I have just posted quite a few new suiting fabrics and two new water-repellant fabrics. Lighting seems to be an issue so if you have any questions on color please give me a call. m

March 21-It looks like we will be changing over to a “shopping” site, and that is a real challenge. Still doing a lot of research. Hang in there, we really are still here. Just not frantic yet. m
March 11-Wow, amazing what a week at moms will do for the soul. I spent the entire time sewing a full length Amy Butler raincoat for her best friend. I really needed that. I haven’t had time to just sit and sew in three whole years. Now time to shift mental gears and decide what is next.
On-line fabric sales once I get the website rebuilt!? Woo-hoo! m
March 2-Well, we did it. We moved out in 2 days flat. Thank you to my friends who jumped in to help. That was exhausting, and unexpected timing. We weren’t sure how things were going to play out until it happened. Funny how God works in your life when you least expect it.
We are taking a break for a few weeks to regroup and reinvent ourselves. Thank you for your support! m
Feb 7-Ya’ll would not believe the cool stuff Gerry and I have realized is in stock at the shop while we have been doing inventory. Frogs, heirloom laces, tropical wool, purple linen, bamboo buttons, glass buttons, silk thread, Kanzashi flowers, zippers, patterns, chiffon, silk crepe de chine, Maggy London, Calvin Klien, Betsy Johnson, Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry, teflon press cloths, tailors hams, tatting shuttles and tailors curves. There’s so much more, I could just on for 37 pages!
This shop is a treasure trove for any serious and beginning seamstress. We do our best to answer any question you may have, or help you find what you need. m
Jan 25-We finished counting all the fabric on Thursday, now on to the notions, buttons, lace, patterns… Then I have to enter everything into the computer… Ick. Double Ick. I don’t like doing inventory. Ya’ll come help reduce these numbers for me! Everything is on sale!
Gerry & I are having fun putting together outfits in our heads with all this lovely fabric. I mean Vera Wang silk for $16/yd? Who couldn’t love that?
Remember, we are open today 10-6, tomorrow is the last Saturday of the month so we are closed. We will re-open on Tuesday, January 29th. m
Dec 5-The December schedule is posted, working on January now. Sales all over the shop!
But while we are talking schedules a dear friend of mine, in the same business, has recently made a valid point, so let me also set the record straight in this forum. Sew And Sews Place is FABRIC STORE! To further quote my friend Cindy, “designer fashion fabric store … that sells famous-name and designer-quality fashion fabrics. We get them from jobbers who buy the leftovers from the manufacturing floors and workrooms of famous designers you know and love…
Sew. Real designers. Real fabrics. For real women.
And a whole assortment of great patterns, that DO come in our size. Whether we’re a size 6. A size 16. Or a size 26.”
Thank you Cindy. I have been trying to get this message out for almost three years now. Well said. m
