OUR FIRST ANNIVERSARY
(FIRST MONTH, THAT IS!)
October, 2011, has been a wonderful month for Sew & Sew Quilt Shop. My month-long “maiden voyage” into the retail world has definitely been memorable. My thanks to all the wonderful ladies who have walked through the front door, sat around the “kitchen table”, and shared stories with us.
Until now, I have only purchased Moda fabrics for inventory; however, I am in discussions with other vendors to consider their brands of fabrics to help widen your shopping choices. I am well pleased with the Moda products and the services offered by them; however, I think it would be wise to have alternate suppliers to give you a better range of fabrics.
We have begun receiving charm packs and layer cakes, and jelly rolls are soon to follow. The colors are so vibrant! New collections are on order and will be shipped to us as soon as they are delivered to the factory.
We have several classes scheduled for November and December. Among these are several classes on free-motion quilting, a rag quilted bag (purse or carry-all), double-slice layer cakes, and free classes on Christmas embellished sweatshirts and no-sew Christmas ornaments. Other classes are being discussed but are not yet set at a firm date. Please call me at 281.592.2021 to register for one or more of these classes.
As the holidays rapidly approach, you might want to start dropping hints about gift certificates from Sew & Sew. They also make wonderful birthday (or any occasion) gifts.
I hope all of you will be able to attend the International Quilt Show at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston this week. It has to be seen to be believed!
$5 SOCIAL SEWING DAYS
Each of you is invited to come into the shop, bring your sewing machine, and work on your unfinished projects on any day in which a class is not being held. There is usually somebody in the shop if you need help with your UFO.
Drop by the shop whenever you get a few spare minutes. Look forward to seeing you!
