Reminder: the shop is closed Sat Sept 4 for the holiday weekend! Enjoy!
It has been a long time since we had any news to send out!
We have seen many projects that you finished during your time at home with only your stash for company. It is great to know that some 20 year+ projects are seeing the light of day again. Maybe it is time to consider some new ones! Lots of new batiks have been ordered and more Christmas fabrics are expected this week. A festive new table runner, tree skirt or pillows will help to cheer us up!Continue reading
