Hey, all you lovely seamsters out there…you showed your love and

Your votes really meant alot, thank you to all who took the time to vote- we really really really appreciate it!  Friends is what it’s all about, right?  And you showed that we have lots!  yay!

So, if we are awarded this Grant, we have lots of plans churning in our creative little brains…and they will all benefit you!   More fabrics, more notions & patterns, more machines to play with and more space for classes.  Yes, our fingers are still crossed !!  It’s a long shot, but hey, ya don’t know if ya don’t try, right??
