Japan Shipment Arrives! A request & Upcoming Shows

posted Feb 14, 2019, 11:22 AM by Lorna Shapiro
Hi everyone... 

Thanks to all of you who came by on February 2 and made my sale so much fun! We know that the morning is always pretty darn busy and we do appreciate your patience as we tried to keep up with the cutting. We also appreciate all that you shared of new things you had learned... thanks to you all.

A request... I have a friend who is looking for a dressmaker in Vancouver. A dressmaker that can design and make custom clothing for her as she is taller than most of us. She has fabulous clothes but her dressmaker is retiring and she needs to find a new one. If anyone has any suggestions, please email me. I've been asking you individually as you came by, but to no avail... so I'm hoping this post might turn up someone for her. Thanks!

This week my latest shipment from Japan arrived. Printed cottons and cotton/linens, and woven cottons and cotton/linens... a lovely selection overall!

Here are some photos of what you'll find when you are ready for some new fabric... These are printed cottons shown with essex linens and pepper cory shot cottons.



And these are chambray weave cottons... so soft and lovely!

And these are linen/cottons... heavy and fabulous...


So you'll be happy to find these new fabrics waiting for you when you come by.

Upcoming Shows...

We are busy preparing for two shows before I go off to Greece with Irene and Susan... don't worry, Maria will keep the shop open while we are away in April.

Before I travel to Greece, Maria and I will be at the two Creative Stitches shows... Victoria March 8-9 and also Abbotsford March 22-23. Here's the link to the show information.

If you have any special orders for me to bring to the shows for you, now is the time to let me know. I'm happy to cut special orders for you but get very busy right before the show itself. I'm looking forward to reconnecting with many of you who don't get a chance to come by the studio.

Happy spring, once you clear away the snow!
