Happy 2016

Welcome to the new year! I hope your holidays were safe, healthy and filled with happy memories.

Why not start off the new year by learning something new, and meeting new people? We're offering three new classes to help get you started:

There's the Wallet and quick clutch class. January 18th from 11-3. Feel free to bring your own lunch. You'll make a quilted wallet in one of two different sizes resembling the ones you might find in a high end department store. Perfect for yourself or as a gift for those Vera Bradley lovers in your life. The class is $20.

Monday February 15 is the convertible Canister class. From 11-3 make a container for those New Year organization projects, or maybe an Easter basket for your little ones. Class is $20.

Finally we'll be offering an Embroidery
and Embellishing group the 2nd Thursday of the month starting January 14th. The classes run from 10-1 and there is a $7 class fee. Wool Kits can be purchased in the shop for $68 and Ribbon kits for $10.

Examples of all three products can be seen in the store.

We're still offering 20% off of all precuts and precut bundles. Perfect for a new project to help keep those winter blues away.

I hope the winter blues stay away and you find lots to do during this last stretch of grey cold weather.
Happy Sewing!

Merry Christmas!

A Christmas with no snow can still be beautiful!

Merry Christmas friends! We just wanted to pop in and let you know how much your business means to us. We feel so blessed that so many people support this little local shop. It makes what we do even more fulfilling when we get to see your smiling faces.

We'll be closing at noon on Christmas eve, and will reopen Monday the 28th.

If your looking for something new to start off the New Year with Nancy Johnson is teaching a Wool Envelope Class. This tri-fold sewing envelope will teach you to work with a variety of materials and several techniques including appliqué, zipper insertion and different creative stitches. The class will be meeting the 2nd Thursday of the Month starting in January.

We hope that you all have a special Christmas and safe and merry New Years.

Thanks again for a great year.
The entire Sew Unique Crew!

Christmas Sale!

Merry Christmas and happy Holidays. I hope your Thanksgiving went well. My (Jessie) oven decided not to work! I was thankful for a neighbor that let me use her oven and I'm sure we'll be remembering that particular holiday for a long time to come.

Right now it's raining and snowing and it's so bleak out that we've decided to spruce up the shop, deck the halls and offer another big sale. Thursday the 10th, Friday the 11th and Saturday the 12th. We wanted to do something fun to combat the early nights and general gloom. With that in mind any fabric with the color red or green in it will be 25% off, and all bundles will be 20% off.

This will be a perfect time to stock up on your red and green grunge and any other fabrics you've had
your eye on.

If it's time to take your quilting to the next level, or like me, your a quilt beginner, we'll be offering a quilt binding class. Judy Allen is teaching the "Basics of Quilt Binding"  Wednesday the 16th from 2-5. Cost is $20. 

Stay warm, and see you next week!
Happy Sewing,
Jessie and Sue
