Pattern Spotlight: This & That Bag!

Looking for a quick and easy project to use your scraps? Try the “This & That Bag” from No. 2 Abbey Lane. A fun pattern that uses 9″ x 9″ pieces of fabric for a cute 5″ x 7″ bag to hold “this & that”! The words on the front are even included in the pattern. We have a great selection of zippers here at the shop, too!

Winter Classes!

Winter classes are being scheduled!  We’ve got Quick Curve ruler, punchneedle, beginner quilting, a project bag class (taught by Kathryn Simel of Midcoast Cottage Design), even a breakfast club!  Check it out by clicking on Classes or on the “Classes” link above.

We are a Baby Lock Retailer!

Visit us and check out the amazing A-line series of Baby Lock machines!  These machines are workhorses and hum along quietly (perfect for sewing during the Red Sox games)!  We have sewing, embroidery, and serger machines itching to go to a new home.  Click on Baby Lock for more information.
