For a shopping appointment, please click on "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.


Flying Geese Ruler

Flying geese seem as though they shouldn't be a problem. You're just sewing a few triangles together! But that's exactly the problem. Triangles love to stretch. This ruler solves it all. You'll have accurate geese, and they'll fly happily across your quilt! Cost: $28 plus supplies. Supplies: Creative Grids flying geese ruler (we have them for sale at the shop), scraps of fabrics. Time: The class will be held on Zoom, Thursday night, Nov. 12, from 6-8 p.m.

English Paper Piecing 101 (Hexies)

Our wonderful teacher Mary Beth Lemmons loves nothing more than hand stitching. In this class, she'll show you how to make and attach hexagons. Make a mug mat--or a whole quilt! Hexies are a wonderful way to use scraps, or to feature those fun little motifs from a novelty fabric. No quilting experience needed! Cost: $28 plus supplies. Supplies: Hexie papers (we recommend the 2" ones to start), thread, needle, and coordinated scraps of fabric. The class will be on Zoom on Monday, Nov. 16, from 6-8 p.m.

Fino Shadow Cowl

This beautiful cowl is a wonderful way to play with colors, using simple knit-purl combinations. Anne Van Aelst cleverly revised the pattern a bit to create not just stripes, but shadowed squares. Join her, and she?ll give you these bonus directions. Cost: $28 plus supplies. Supplies: You can pick up the pattern on Ravelry. You?ll need at least 2 contrasting colors of any fingering-weight yarn, and needles as specified in the pattern. Join Anne on Tuesday, Nov. 17, from 6-8 p.m. on Zoom.
