Lots has happened in the past few weeks.

We closed the quilt shop. After 18 months with not a single profitable month, we got tired of continuously pouring our savings into stock, rent, and other expenses and pulled the plug.  It took two weeks to bring all the remaining stock and fixtures home and now we are trying to sort it all out.  Kathie should not need to buy fabric for years to come.

I have been loading the remaining stock into Kathie's Etsy shop at discounted prices.  A link is at the side of the page.

I split off my vintage sewing machine items from Kathie's store and set up my own Etsy shop with just sewing machine-related items. I have lots more to list but it's a start. I have placed a link to my shop at the side of the page, also.

I have eight Singer motors waiting to be re-wired but won't get to them anytime soon.

Sorry about the shop. I do try to support my local shops.

So sorry to hear about the store. I'm sure it was a difficult decision.

I'm sorry the store didn't work out. Small retail business can be so incredibly tough. My husband and I ran a retail store for about 5 years and just couldn't make it work. It was a difficult decision to close up shop, but we knew we wouldn't make it through another year at that point.

I missed this post and I apologize for tardy response. I'm sorry to read of the shop closing. I know how hard a decision that must have been. Hope that all is well currently with you and Kathy.
