Fun things to do & places to eat while you're in Kennesaw!


COVID INFORMATION
 
Don't forget that we have a great variety of masks in stock for only $5.00. Fabrics change often so why not do like I've done and have a lot of different ones to match your outfits.
 
We are still offering curbside but if you want to come in, please know the shop is disinfected as everyone leaves and throughout the day for the safety of our staff and our customers.
 
To stay in compliance with Governor Kemp's Guidelines we are taking the following precautions:
 
  • You are required to wear masks while in our shop. If you do not have a mask, we are selling them for only $5.00.
  • You are required to be at least 6 feet apart from anyone in the shop at all times. We have also put up plastic over cutting table and check out station for your safety. You can put your fabric on the counter, step back and we will cut it for you. This has worked well for everyone.
  • We disinfect throughout the day to keep everyone as safe as possible.
  • We are still offering curb-side delivery for your convenience if you are not comfortable coming into the shop. You may call us at 678-355-6776 and let us know what you need, provide us with your credit card information and we will deliver your purchase to the curb by your car.
  • If you want to come into the shop, know we are constantly disinfecting everything to the best of our ability. For everyone's safety and well being, we are monitoring our own health before coming to work and would appreciate everyone doing the same before coming into the shop.
 
Thanks for your understanding and patience in these trying times. This too shall pass and things will get back to normal. Be sure to help your friends and neighbors.
