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

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
