Yes, it's finally March. February wore me out. Go look at the Vintage Bloom Pictures on the Fun Stuff page, they are awesome. Linda really has gone all out getting the BOM up and running for y'all. We are excited about that new project.
Please just jump on in.
SALE on all Cutting Tools, Cutting boards, Scissors and Rotary Cutters in the shop March 9-20.
Anyone who joined us at last weeks Martelli Notions Event knows what a cut above that was, and we have added quite a few Fabulous Martelli Notions to our Shop line-up.
Winter certainly has been full of ups and downs and all arounds. But I can tell you that here in Sew And Sews Place we are moving right along with boxes of new fabrics arriving, if not exactly as we expected, at least with lots of fanfare. And classes, did I mention classes? Rachel, Linda, Vivian and I are really working hard to make sure there is something always on the schedule to keep you interested and educated. Linda has truly stepped up her game and has set up a few fabulous challenges for those willing to take them on. Head over to the Classes Page to see what she has going for those of the Advanced and Intermediate Quilting Level Skills. I think you will be pleased.
The BOM, Block Of the Month is rolling along great! The Vintage Jewel fabrics have arrived and they are so, so pretty! If you haven't joined in please do so now while we can still guarantee plenty of fabric to complete your quilt top is in inventory. Linda has already made a few of the blocks and they are on display here at the shop and our private FaceBook Group. If you aren't on FB, don't worry, we will keep you up to date on all the happenings.
Great New Additions
Are you on our Newsletter list? Well why the heck not?! If you are then you already know the great news about our latest addition to the crew here in the Shop. Yep, I can't say "us gals" any more because now Mark Sailor is in our midst on a fairly regular basis as our in-house sewing machine Technician. Yep, you heard it from me. Mark will service and repair most makes and models of sewing machines (except Viking/Husqvarna), and even Janome Sergers (only Janome Sergers). You can bring your machines into the shop for diagnosis, service and repair during normal business hours. Welcome aboard Mark! Ahem, I mean aboard! :)
Did you know I make YouTube Videos of some of the sewing projects and box openings we do here in the Shop? Why yes, yes, I do! And our YouTube Channel is named of all things Sew And Sews Place. Let us know what you think and please share the links with ALL of your friends and family. We really do want to hear your feedback so we can improve and do more of the things you want to see. m
How About Trying a Quick Serger Project For a Change.
I used 3/4 yd of our 45" Satin Fabric, and 1/4 yd of our pretty coordinated 100% cotton fabric for the trim band. Everything was pre-washed and cut before I started. I chose a pillowcase from home as my pattern.
There are so many things going on, see for yourself! (Feb 5, 2021)
Two Boxes Arrived on Feb 3, 2021! Twice as Nice!

Long ago, in a land far, far away... just kidding. My grandmother introduced me to hand sewing when I was six, and I was hooked. By the age of twelve I was using my moms sewing machine and for my Sweet Sixteen I received my very own Kenmore. Her name is Faithful, and she has travelled the world with my family and I over the years.
I believe sewing is a skill that once learned can never be taken away. Like riding a bike. Also, should be enjoyed with the finest fabrics and tools. I mean why not? We only dance once, and you want to do it in the prettiest shoes! m
