Temporary Shop Hours
This is a very difficult time for everyone right now. With the concerns regarding everyone's health and well being, we will be changing our shop hours TEMPORARILYOur new hours will be 10:00 - 2:00 Wednesday through Saturday.

We will evaluate this every week and will keep you informed if things change. If you have a class scheduled, we will notify you of any postponements or cancellations. The safety of our employees and customers is our top priority.
 
To stay in compliance with Governor Kemp's Guidelines we are taking the following precautions:
 
  • No more than 10 people in the shop at one time (since we do so many curb-side deliveries, this isn't a concern.)
  • 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 after everyone leaves the shop and throughout the day to keep everyone as safe as possible.
  • We are 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.
  • If you have a mask, it would be good to wear it any time you are in public.
 
Since people are not bringing in their Show & Tell projects for our newsletter, we would still like to see what you have been up to. Simply reply to this email and put your name in the subject line so we can add you picture to our newsletter.
 
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.

One-Block Wonder  
Date: Saturday, May 2 (10:00 - 4:30 pm)
Instructor: Nancy Hutchison
Cost: $60
"One Block Wonder" is the term used by Rosenthal and Pelzmann in their books to describe quilts composed of a single repeating shape usually cut from one fabric, and then put together in a kaleidoscope arrangement. These quilts are fascinating and require constant input from the quilter, which makes for an engaged experience until the last stitch. There are many variables to choose from when stitching, yet the sewing itself is straight lines only with no set in seams. Your original block will result with many applications for other block settings. Fabric choice is important to the process so many styles of fabric can be successful.

 


 

Note: All classes are non-refundable if cancelled within two weeks of the class date. Classes noted with an asterisk (*) are non-refundable after sign-up.
