Our New Shop ~ A Little Before & After

So I'm waaaay overdue for a blog post, and I thought a little Before and After of our new shop location was a good time to wake up the Blog :)
At the end of 2015, as we were looking around for a new space that would give us some bigger work rooms, larger showroom, and a little elbow room, we found out that this double wide spot farther down in our same building had become available :)

In the beginning it looked like this ~ mostly one large space.  A (somewhat) clean slate to work with.

We knew we wanted some walls built to create our work spaces.

And we put up these French Doors so we can see out when we're quilting away in the Handi Quilter room.

Here the little kitchen area is being built that clients can use when they come rent the machines, or take a class.  This one is larger though than our last one, with a table in it and everything :)

If you haven't come in to visit us yet, we moved into our new space in suite G last Monday (Same building, just farther down to the right from where we were before ~ 9691 Gerwig Lane Suite G, Columbia MD 21046) 

Here are a couple of sneak peaks from around our showroom area.  Above is a simply stunning quilt made by Pat Brousil.  It's a sample for her upcoming Hand Piecing Class called Twisted Star.  Click Here for details about the class.

We have lots of space for quilt samples!  Here are a few...above left is a sample for our Sassy Quilt that we have a few kits for, and on the right hand side is  the Quilt As you Go Baby Quilt sample for Barbara Dahlberg's upcoming class on Thursday, April 21st.

We'll take a few more photos of more areas, including the workrooms as we get our quilts up that we brought back from the quilt show we also were vending at last week.  We still have things to get finished, and things are evolving.  Lots of new products are coming out each day, and we have plans for changes in the future for each of the areas of the shop ~ so stay tuned for more photos :)

Just this weekend our signage was installed ~ this time we have our whole name up!  Next week our logo decal will be installed on our front door too :)

Stay tuned for more photos, and stop in to see us in our new digs!
Enjoy the day!

Beautiful! I'm way to far away, but your shop sure looks like a fun place to visit.
