How often have we heard “stay safe….stay home” in the past weeks?? And we are hoping you have been doing just that! And getting a little tired of it! With new regulations in place to help ease back in to a new safe normal, we still feel it is best to cancel the May Gone quilting. The store
open – and we are hoping you are able to start venturing out, but we still need to practice social distancing. Keeping everyone safe and healthy is a priority for us. So – hang in there…..we are going to have one amazing Show and Tell once we are able to gather again.
We are hearing from so many that they are going stir-crazy – so tired of making masks – running out of projects in their stash. Did you ever think we would say we are tired of sewing every day? A huge thanks to everyone that has devoted so much time to making masks – sharing your talents to provide for the safety of others. We are seeing such renewed interest in sewing in general – translating into more and more interest in quilting as a stress-reliever. As we found ourselves encouraged to stay home, how many dug out cookbooks, old UFO’s, cleaned those closets and reorganized and/or re-painted every corner of our homes?? Working from home has a whole new meaning for many! What unprecedented times!
Remember that the All Iowa Shop Hop is still on – extended thru the month of July. This should allow you to carefully and safely visit these wonderful shops – replenish and renew our stash and our spirits.
So – all that aside – We are trying to create the ‘new normal”, allowing you some joy by venturing out – come and shop safely. Leanne and the staff are working hard to make new samples, new displays – some fun new fabrics and patterns – but keeping your health as our priority. Shipping and the availability of some supplies has been a bit of a challenge, but we just have to roll with it! Who ever thought that rotary cutters would be a back-ordered item??? So – no gathering yet in May – we really miss you.
