We’re in the last stages of prepping our new location at 2414 Wards Road and packing up all of our fabric, machines, tools and supplies from our old location on Fort Avenue. It’s been quite a whirlwind of activity.
The new shop is easier to find for our out of town customers and in an area many of our local customers frequent. There’s great parking and night time lighting.
Inside we’ve opened up a few walls for more space, including a separate classroom and studio space for better classes. There’s a separate area for sewing machine take-in, also known as machine triage, as well as a separate workroom for machine repair and servicing.
I am happy to report that there is a large, clean, handicapped accessible bathroom. There’s just more space overall, which makes for a better shopping experience.
There’s still a little finish carpentry being done, followed by painting. Then we will be getting all our fabric moved in as well as adding new fabrics. Christmas fabrics are scheduled to arrive any time now! (Can you believe it’s time to start Christmas projects already?) And we are making the final touches on preparations for our first time participating in the Row by Row Experience.
I can’t wait to show you this new space!
