Just a quick note to outline January classes…… and, if you’ve been in the Studio recently, you will have noticed that the future retail store premises are now vacant, and renovations and set-up will begin soon. In the meantime, new fabric collections are arriving every week in preparation for opening mid- to late-January. You’re welcome to drop into the Studio during our current hours (Monday, Friday, Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) to shop these fabrics now.
We’re excited to introduce our new logo (above), which will ultimately be featured on our Facebook page and website as well. Stay tuned.
Lastly, we’d like to wish all our quilting friends a very Merry Christmas and many happy sewing days in the New Year. We look forward to seeing you soon in the Studio.
