Who doesn’t love to celebrate? I know I do! What about a weeklong celebration of the art of making? Sounds fun, right? What if we threw in some giveaways, fun special events and a Swanky Sip & Stitch? Even better! From Tuesday, September 15th to September 20th, that is what we will be doing. Celebrating. Oh, and we will also be celebrating the fact that we are open. You know, kind of like a Grand Opening, but better!
We also want you guys to have stuff. On our Facebook page, there will be a daily giveaway (so make sure you are part of our posse!). We will post in the morning and you will have all day to respond. At the end of the day we will pick a winner. We will do it fair and square, with a random number generator, so even if you reply late, you still have a chance.
If you can make it to the shop, there is another surprise waiting for you—mystery patterns! These have been created for this week and have limited quantities. Once they are gone, they are gone. Each day will feature a different craft (knitting, sewing and quilting/patchwork) and you will get the pattern free with any purchase, but you have to come to the shop to see. No hints. There will be kits available for pre-order, if so desired.
I said events, didn’t I? I bet you want to hear about those. Here is the breakdown of the schedule:
Tuesday: The Fall Knit Along will begin!
Wednesday: The new kids class, Sew Cool Skirts, makes its debut
Thursday: Vintage Pop-Up Shop & Evening Lecture with Laurel of Retromat Vintage
Friday: Swanky Sip & Stich
Saturday: Seamwork Saturday
Sunday: Knitting 202: Intro to Lace, makes its debut.
Along with all of the stuff I just mentioned (which is a lot!), we will have some special pricing on some of our fantastic BERNINA sewing machines. Did you know that September is National Sewing Month? Perfect time to upgrade that machine!
