Welcome! Spring is flying by fast. As all of you know, our world was quickly rearranged by the Covid19 Virus. Our plan for new events and workshops where put on hold. Our store front was closed to the public and we rallied with curbside service and mail order. The upside was, people found a use for their sewing machines again. Women used their stash to help others protect themselves. I believe adversity brings out the best in most people, it was reassuring to see it in action. Open hours are Mon - Sat 9:30 to 4:00. We ask you to wear masks, social distance and use hand sanitizer in our store. Curbside delivery is still available as well as online sales and shipping. We want everyone to be safe and healthy. Please check us out on the FabShop Hop for May and June. Just click on the bunny at the top of the page, he will take you to the begining of the hop. There are prizes and you get to visit some great stores on line. Good News! Hwy 36 Quilt Trail begins May 18, 2020. We would love to have you visit our store. Free patterns and kits are available in store. But, we know some of you are not traveling this summer. With this in mind, We have adjusted the rules to make it easier to participate. You must still stop by the store to pick up a free pattern. If you can't make it to the store, you are welcome to purchase the kit online.
