Good news! We’ve begun the remodel process and will (hopefully) be in a new studio soon. Of course, we’re just in the very early stages. We’ve done a walk through with our contractor (who happens to be my brother-in-law) and now Tammy and I will start the clean up in preparation for him to begin the “tear apart”. Yes… Most of the inside needs to be torn down and put back properly.
Here are some pictures of the building as it is now. It was used by the former owner as a woodworking shop. That has been cleared out and we’ve been using it for storage lately. We are looking forward to the finished project, landscaping included!
Is “quilty” a word? 🙂 I guess it is around here!
We are expanding our website this year. Since our move, we have only been carrying the bare necessities. (Of course that mainly included fabric by 3 Sisters for Moda!) We are really excited about the newest additions that are arriving. We’ll be adding some more designers to our collection of fabrics, new patterns, books, notions, and digital quilting patterns for the Statler Stitcher and Intelliquilter.
Today I thought I’d show you our new gift items for quilters. We got in some great new stationery! I’m not much of a writer, but I do like pretty stationery. I guess I know I should write, and I really do love my friends, and having stationery at least makes me feel closer to my goal – a letter in the mail box. 🙂
I guess I’ll start with the easiest kind of notes. Small, yet big enough embossed note sheets. These are my favorite. It is very easy for me to keep these on my desk and quickly jot a note to a friend or a customer without feeling overwhelmed. It helps me keep it short and sweet, and yet it gets DONE! I love the scalloped edge of these sheets and the pretty lavender color is delicate without being too immature. And of course, the embossed quilt blocks at the top brought the first smile to my face when I saw these. They are really cute!
Then there are the note cards. I love note cards. They give you room to write a decent note and let someone know you’re thinking about them, but they don’t give you enough room to write a journal that will never make it to the mail box. (I’m very familiar with the un-mailed “journal”.) These cards come with matching envelopes and a cute carrying pouch that fastens with Velcro. How nice!
Check out the other design we have too!
Hope you like them as much as we do!
