Hello, World!

You may have heard about the "word for a year" trend happening in some crafty circles.  For those of you who haven't (it was new to me this year), I was given a word to ponder this year.  I am supposed to place this word in a prominent place so that I am reminded of it daily.  It only took one glance for me to know what I was supposed to do with my word.  What's that you say?  What's the word, already? Courage.

I've been dreaming about a lovely little space where people gather to make fine, handmade things.  It's time for me to bring that word AND the dream into reality. This February, I'll be opening a studio where friends (new and old) can come together to sew, take a class, or purchase something to make life a little brighter.  This spring, we will offer classes to help you usher in the season with color and style.  There will be classes for all ages (including some special spring break offerings for the eager kiddos in your life), so stay tuned while we get set up.  Once we get going, we will have a small selection of retail fabrics and notions both online and in the store. Please click the "follow" link so that we may keep you informed of our opening!

Courage to you all!
