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


 

Please be advised that we are open our normal business hours which are Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. We will continue to adhere to the strict CDC guidelines to keep you and our staff safe from Covid19. Some of our staff and many of our customers have compromised immune systems, we ask that everyone wear a mask while in the shop.

 

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. If you need a mask, we are selling them for only $3.00.

 

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. 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.

Prairie Women's Sewing Circle * NEW CLASS

Cost: $37.50
Instructor: Muriel Pfaff
A unique, monthly club that will take you on a journey back in time as we explore life along the Oregon Trail. Gather together as the Prairie Women did, and hear anecdotal stories about their quilt-making, and what daily life was like for those who traveled by wagon trail. Each month we will be working on quilt projects from The Prairie Women Sewing Circle pattern set designed by Pam Buda. At each monthly gathering, you will receive a new quilt project pattern along with tips, techniques, and shortcuts for making the quilts. You will also experience pioneer life in a fun way with stories, food samples, and an old-fashioned quilting bee-type atmosphere. The club begins in September and each session runs for three months. You won't want to be left out as we begin Journey (Session) One so sign up today as we...journey the threads of time! (Scroll down for additional information in our Class section below.)
Binding 101 
Date: Wednesday, September 23 (10 - 1)
Cost: $35
Instructor: Muriel Pfaff
Learn the technique of bias double-fold binding with crisp corners and machine or hand finishes, all while making a cute "Three Pocket Purse". Class will also include a discussion of other binding techniques such as mock bindings and "pillow turn" bindings. Rather than working on a quilt, students will work on attaching bias binding to an 18" square of pre-quilted fabric. This will ensure that everyone completes turning four corners and finishes off the ends. (Kit fabric may vary from photo below.)
