For a shopping appointment, please click on the "shopping appointment" below.

Here's what you can do when you make an appointment:

1. Browse to get inspired, and buy nothing. I don't care. I know you'll be back.
2. Pick out one skein of embroidery floss.
3. Ask for advice on a quilting or knitting project--without buying anything to go with said projects.
You'll be back when your project is finished. I'm not worried.
4. Pick out fabric or yarn for a project without my help.
5. Pick out fabric or yarn for a project with my help.
6. Show me something you've finished.
7. If you're new in town, come in to see what's in the shop! I'd love to meet you and show you around.
8. A visitor passing through? Click for a time, and come on in!

I'll be delighted to see you!

Making an appointment is easy. Call or text me, or do it here. (Be sure you get a confirmation email to show that the appointment has gone through! Call if you don't!) If you need an earlier or later time, that's easy, too! Just call the shop at 814-238-4151. (I've kept the afternoons open on this calendar so that you can call in for any yarn and fabric emergency slots!) If you don't see times, click on the little black arrow below.

New York Beauty

The New York Beauty is one of Cynthia?s favorite blocks. Not only is it striking, but it?s the perfect way to learn paper piecing and to sew curves. It?s easier than it looks!

Walking-Foot Quilting

Let's go beyond the X-across squares! Learn to use your walking foot to its best advantage to quilt your pieces. Squiggles, circles, and lines are all fun ways to quilt; Cynthia will show you just what to do. Supplies: Sewing machine, recently cleaned and oiled, with a new needle (I recommend a Microtex #80/12); walking foot for your machine; three 12" x18" quilt sandwiches--cotton fabric on the top and bottom (muslin is a terrific choice), cotton batting in the middle, and basted together in the way you prefer (e.g., pins or spray-basted); a small project on which to practice quilting with your walking foot (e.g., a placemat, table runner, or wall hanging), basted and ready to quilt; 50 weight cotton thread in a color that contrasts with your fabric sandwiches; 1" blue painter?s tape; small ruler such as a hem gauge; basic sewing supplies; and Jacquie Gering's book Walk: Master Machine Quilting with Your Walking Foot, which you can get at the shop.
