As many of you have already heard, thanks to a nasty bug going around, I decided not to renew the lease on my studio. So, for the time being, I will be split between my house and probably a storage unit, or small room. Sales have been much better than anticipated, in spite of no tourism and no bazaars, so I'm a little nervous about working with less space for a few months, but I'm excited to have more time and freedom to be creative without that rent payment pressure too. I've even been back in the Keepsake Quilting catalog, and will be in two different Art Quilting Studios magazine issues this fall/winter! I'm also getting several classes scheduled at That Old Sew and Sew, so watch for those. My business isn't going anywhere, just downsizing our space until the crazy blows over...😅 Hopefully next summer we'll have an even better place to land:-) Online shopping will not be affected, which is most of what we do anyway!
In the meantime, I have to get rid of some stuff!! So I'm having a sale this Saturday, August 8, 12-4, and I'll do another day later in the month if necessary also. I will have a wide range of things, from FREE to yard sale type things, to bazaar/gift shop items, mostly discounted so they go! I have been given many things, so generally I will not charge for any of those I'm parting with. I'm not currently scheduled to do any bazaars this year, which may change, but in case it doesn't , here is your chance for some of those items!
Here are a few things I will have in particular:
Eversewn Sparrow 30 sewing machines, new, reg. $499, now $350, I have two
Lots of free paper crafting items
Quilted wall hangings 25% off!
Kits and patterns, 25% off!
The popular 'stuff a bag of scraps/fabric' that I did last time I moved. $15 for up to 4 yds, including hand dyes!
Fabric panels, Teresa Ascone and others
And lots more!
I hope to see you there! Text or call 687-6703 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
On a happier note, we used some of our rent savings to buy an RV, which has been soooo much fun! I should be able to find lots of inspiration traveling around Alaska!
Happy Sewing! Beret

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
