What a start to the New Year. It 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 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 will 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. Rachel had added an evening Beginner Quilt class and it filled right up. We will keep you informed of the next start dates. And I am rolling out a brand new curriculum for BootCamp in February, but sign up is now, so don't delay.
To top it all off we are starting our first Bock Of the Month Program (BOM) in the February! Very excited about this! Head over to the Fun Stuff Page for all the details on this great new adventure for quilters of all levels.
Are you on our Newsletter list? Well why the heck not?! If you are then you already know the great news about our newest 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 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 abroad Mark! Ahem, I mean aboard! :)
Did you know I make YouTube Videos of some of the sewing projects and box opening 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
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
