May Schedule Changes

We will be closed for Memorial Day on Monday, May 29th.  When we open on Tuesday, May 30th we will be on Summer Hours.  Please note that these hours are a bit different from summer hours in the past.

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2017, we will be open:

Monday through Saturday 10am – 5pm

Sunday 12pm – 4pm

New Reusable Bag Policy

In honor of Earth Day, we have decided to launch a new reusable bag policy.  The plastic bags we use in the shop are made from recycled plastic, but it would still be nice to minimize the number of them that get released into the world, right?

So starting on Saturday, April 22, we will give you a “Bag Tag” for each reusable bag you use.  You can collect the Bag Tags and redeem a set of 10 for $1 off a purchase of merchandise (cannot be applied to classes or gift cards).  If you prefer, you can contribute your Bag Tags to our new collection box, where they will be worth 10 cents each toward our goal of purchasing a Share of a Sheep to help a family in need through Heifer International.  It might take a while (the smallest share is $10), but it seems like a worthwhile goal to work toward.

Sound good?  Let’s give it a go and see what happens!  Maybe we’ll keep it up until we can purchase a whole sheep!

Button-Sewing Service offered on April 22nd

Are you currently ignoring any projects because you’ve gotten to the part where you have to sew on buttons? Maybe a cardigan that needs a closure or a stuffed animal in need of eyes? We’ve got you covered! We’ve teamed up with a couple of folks who actually ENJOY sewing buttons, and they are going to be in the shop on Saturday, April 22nd, starting at 1:30pm. You can drop off your project any time between now and then, or bring it by on Saturday afternoon. For the price of $2/button, you can let someone else take care of this chore for you!

The Frenzy Board Is Up!

Spring Finishing Frenzy runs from April 15th (this Saturday) through midnight May 26th.  Do you want to join in?  It’s a great way to get motivated to get some projects done.  Make your commitment at this link, and we’ll add you to the Big Board.  Then join us for a party on Saturday, May 27th at 5pm and everyone who meets their goal will get a prize.
