We have been overwhelmed with your support since reopening! Thank you so much! There are so many new things going on that I will only touch on the immediate ones in this email.

We are still thrilled to have had Serendipity chosen to be featured as one of the 10 top shops in the upcoming fall Quilt Sampler magazine. We expect to receive the magazine in the next few weeks. It is being printed this week!! We are planning a bit of a party when it arrives so stay tuned for that!
Until many more people are vaccinated we are all still at risk of getting Covid. There is no way to tell by looking at a person whether they have been vaccinated. We will continue proper masking (covering nose and mouth) in the shop. Using the hand sanitizer and distancing in the shop are also appreciated.

*Proof of Covid Vax is required to attend both in shop classes and our retreats at the Dunes Manor in OC.*
Summer Moon Sew Along

Linda Grigsby led us through last year with several sew alongs, so I have asked her again to teach/lead us through Summer Moon, a book by Carrie Nelson. It is a sampler type quilt and you will make 3 sizes of 3 blocks each month. The pattern makes a 70" X 78" quilt if made as it is in the book. I see many ideas coming from this project! It is an 11 month project with the first month being an introduction and guidelines to choosing fabrics, organizing, and helpful hints. The Sew Along will be offered in person OR on ZOOM. You will need to sign up for one or the other. We will be sharing our progress on our private Facebook page- Serendipity Stir Crazy Sewing Chicks.
The cost for this program is $100 and the book is $20. This means that you are paying less than $10 per class. There are no kits for this quilt. It is a great stash quilt or we can help you with some fabric choices. Summer Moon begins in September. Below are Linda's fabric choices on the left and Kathy's are on right.
The good news is that there are many new fabrics, books and patterns in the shop. Fall and holiday fabrics have finally been arriving and there are more to come. We also have new batiks, Winter flannels, and blenders, among others. The not so good news is that there are still many delays in our supply chain and prices are increased on most items. As they arrive, new items are entered on the website so you can even get a sneak peak before you come into the shop. We are continuing online shopping with porch or in store pick up and shipping also.

Right now we are notifying people on our wait list for availability and soon, will be opening to all. If you are interested in attending one of our retreats, please email me and include a copy of your Covid vaccination record (required for attendance at retreat and at in shop classes) and you will be put on a list to be notified when there is a spot open.
