StitchCraft will open today at 10:00 am! What is StitchCraft? it is Three Crafty Quilters and then some! We wanted to be more inclusive to EVERYONE who loves to create with a needle and thread, so we have expanded. We will have the wonderful Baby Lock sewing machines (arriving later this week), displayed on gorgeous Koala sewing furniture (and the most comfortable chairs!). Our Handi Quilter long arm machine was assembled yesterday and will be ready to run soon!
We couldn't wait to share a peek, so we used our camera phones. See it in person to appreciate the colors and light. We are open today at 10 - yay!! Follow us on Facebook for regular updates and cool things we will be doing at the shop (like bolt-of-the-day!).

Having a fabulous time in Missouri at Baby Lock headquarters! A full week of intensive training with the nicest people around! Everyone at the company has been unbelievably friendly and accommodating and we have learned lots. The group that is training together is a super group from all over the country and we have been sharing ideas and information and bouncing our plans off of each other. Two of the gals in the group are from nearby Jackmanns, which has two shops in Missouri/Illinois. We took a road trip there last night and it was such an inspirational field trip!
We are finishing up today and heading back home to move the shop. Will need to keep the caffeine flowing - although I think the adrenaline from the new shop excitement will be fuel enough! cheers!

Lisa is a wonderful quilter and sewer and has created this spectacular quilt using a lot of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Isn't it gorgeous? (She made her dress, too!)

(every month should be National Sewing Month and National Quilting Month, but I digress)
