I want to thank everyone that stopped in on our first day open in the new shop ~ they all managed to find us in our little corner! We had a great day, and saw many old friends and made some new ones. All the support and well wishes that I've been getting means more to me than I can say, and I appreciate everyone who has been spreading the word about us opening up over here :)
(And, did I think to take some photos of our busy first day? ...Of course not...So here are some photos of the new shop's front room taken yesterday morning before we opened for our second day.)
Right now in this corner we have Jo Morton's "Amelia", "Jo's Best Friends", and fabrics from other various Jo collections. More Civil War era repros are coming in along with some yummy wool that I have on order. (We're taking registrations for our Jo's Little Women Club now and already have a great group that will be starting on February 13th!)
I originally fell in love with this space because we're on the corner and have lots of windows. With all the trees around us, it even looks good on a rainy day.
...And you can see out the window, we have lots of our very own parking...a nice improvement from my home studio! (We had our own parking, but not much of it.)
I have some more modern and bright prints coming in too, along with a bunch of jelly rolls, charms and pre-cuts.
...And that's our first empty bolt that you see at the end of the cutting table. ~ I'm looking forward to fun quilting times with friends in 2014, and many more empty bolts to come :)
Enjoy the day!
...Stay tuned for photos of our middle room with our HQ Studio, and progress pictures on our big classroom build out!
