WE ARE HAVING AN OPEN HOUSE FOR ANNETTE
As many of you may already know, Annette will be retiring at the end
of September. We are all sad to see her go but she is ready to retire
with her husband and lead the “good life”! She has been taking care of
parts ordering and inventory over the past several years. She is also a
huge help with organizing for Sew Expo. She will be greatly missed but
we wish her well and hope she enjoys the next chapter of life.
We will have an open house on Thursday, September 24 th from 9 to 4.
We know these are odd times and some may not feel comfortable
coming into the store. We are doing everything we can to keep safe.
We will continue to do our regular cleaning, safe distancing and
wearing a mask. If you uncomfortable with this, you can send her an
email at
