We've made some big changes around the shop, mostly in the backroom. Please take a few minutes when you arrive for your shift to check out the new color wall (formerly known as Kokka/floral), the Christmas/Halloween corner (previously Cotton+Steel) and the new home of shot cottons/chambrays. Be sure to note the color ordering done in these areas and do your part to help it stay this organized and pretty when putting away fabrics! The rounder in the back no longer houses fabric. Please help keep the buckets under there clean by using the duster or vacuum hose during cleaning each day. The African/Aboriginal fabrics are now against the back wall. The space formerly occupied by those fabrics (near notions) is now all the cotton/linen fabrics (Kokka, Moda, C+S, etc.)
The fabrics in the sale bin have been marked down in the system but not on the ends of the bolts. Most of them are now $6/yard, a few are $5/yard.
Sarah has begun working on the shop schedule through the summer because of events, summer camps and previously submitted time-off requests. If you have been thinking about taking time off between now and Aug. 1, please be aware that no further time off requests can be accommodated for these dates: June 1-19 and July 1-10.
Our Shop Hop "Sew Cheesy" coupons are good in store in May. Please be sure to write the purchase amount and date on the coupon when it is redeemed, and place it in the register.
