On June 26th, 2013, I told my husband that I thought is was time to open a Finch storefront. The very next day, I met with my landlord (who is, hands down, the best landlord in Leesburg) and asked him if he would let me sign a lease for 1 month... And he said yes. The whole Morgenthau family spent the next 5 days building furniture and setting up sewing machines, working around toddler naps and trips to the hardware store. On the 4th of July we were open for business.
The home studio had a small following, and it didn't take long for our student list to grow. Those first customers and students will always be significant to me. You know who you are. You believed in my vision for this vibrant community, and it was more to you than just a store or a one-time class. You saw yourself here- you found your place at the Finch, and I am so thankful for you.
And what better way to thank you and celebrate our first year than to have a big sale, and host special events all month long!
Let's go at this chronologically:
Patchwork Pillow Mini Workshops- Have family or friends in town for the holiday? Bring them along for a fun, quick activity! Supplies included! We'll have a grab bag full of pre-release fabric for you to sew with... Yay! (sessions available all day long).
Maxi Dress Class- 9-2pm Make a great summer dress and bring a friend! 2 seats remaining
Friday Night Sewcial- This is the "official" First Friday for Leesburg this month (because the actual first Friday is on the 4th). So we'll have live music (classical guitar... can't wait!). Sign up here to get your spot!
July 12th + 13th:
BIG OL" FIRST BIRTHDAY SALE!!! We'll have everything in the store on sale. Been drooling over a fabric/yarn/tool/pattern for some time now? Now's your chance! Every purchase over $20 will receive a Finch goodie pack. Purchases over $70 will receive another prize from a grab bag of Market treasures (until supplies last!!).
Finch Family Night- These plans are still underway, and we're keeping it under our hat until we have more details. The plan is to show you, your hubbies, and the kids a good time with a good old fashioned family night. We'll start inside with some refreshments, and then move out doors for a ..... oh, right... I can't tell you that quite yet! Stay tuned!
Friday Night Sewcial- you know the drill!
