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.


Block of the Month 2022: Bed size, pick up

This year's block of the month is made from Australian fabrics and batiks! It will give you a choice of making either a lap size (60" x 60") or a bed size (84" x 84"). IMPORTANT: Please read all the details in the newsletter. ALSO IMPORTANT: You can't sign up online anymore because of the way the system works, but if you call the shop, we can take care of adding you. The sign up here is for the 84" x 84" BED SIZE, with IN-STORE PICKUP (not mailed). You may either make an appointment to pick up, or do curbside pickup. Packets will be ready between 10:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. pickup on each Saturday listed. If a particular day doesn't work, just make an appointment to pick up at another time.

Christmas Stockings

If you're a knitter, Christmas is just around the corner. Start panicking now! Cynthia Mazzant will cheerfully show you how to make Christmas stockings?and if you knit quickly enough, you'll have time to make one for everyone in your family (provided that your family is fairly small). Cost: $42 Supplies: Cynthia Spencer has designed a stocking pattern, but you can also choose among our shop's selection, or we can buy one of your choice for you on Ravelry. We have all the supplies you'll need! Dates: Mondays, Oct. 3, 10, and 17, from 6-8 p.m. This class is in person, in the shop, but if you prefer Zoom, we will set that up so you can attend from your home! Masking will depend on COVID levels. Please bring a mask.

Quilting 101 Placemats

Let's get started quilting. You'll make one placemat in class, and you'll learn all kinds of cool things, such as matching corners, cutting safely, picking fabrics, quilting, binding, and of course, the famous quarter-inch seam (whatever that is!). Cost: $42 Supplies: You'll need a machine in good working order (you may borrow ours, but you should have one available at home for homework). You'll also need the placemat pattern and all the fixin's! Make an appointment to stop in a few days before the class begins so we can help you pick out your fabric and notions. We suggest our Creative Grids rulers, which are easy to use with a non-slip grip and visible markings, and our Olfa rotary cutters, which are sturdy and easy to use. You should know how to thread your machine and sew at least one line with it. Dates: Wednesdays, Sept. 28 and Oct. 5, from 6-9 p.m. at the shop. COVID policy: Will depend on COVID levels. Please bring a mask.
