April and our six-year anniversary party have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean the surprises are over. It’s May and we’re paving the way for the next six years to come. So we’ve got news. BIG news! You, our wonderful customers, have made Mad About Patchwork such a success that it’s time for us to take the next step and get a place of our own. In a few weeks, Pam is moving the shop out of her house into a bigger space (don’t worry, it’s only 5 minutes away) and she’s taking Kaisa and Laura with her. We’ll be offering the same great service, quick shipping and an even better selection of fabric. Oh, and we’ll have set hours for all of you locals who want to stop by and shop in person. We’ll be posting the new address and opening date soon, so be sure to keep an eye on the blog and Facebook for more details.
What’s that you say? Sounds fantastic? Well, hold onto your hats, folks, the surprises aren’t over yet. Laura has plans to open a studio right inside Mad About Patchwork and offer sewing, quilting and art classes of all kinds. Yes, that’s right – a studio space where you can shop and make — a place where you can meet and learn alongside other quilters, sewists and artists, right in the middle of Pam’s beautiful fabric! (Is that a fabric addict’s dream or what?)
Wanna help make those plans a reality? Check out the Kickstarter campaign we’ve got going. We’d love your help and support to make the studio come to life and give you all a space and place to sew. For each amount funded, there’s a nifty handmade reward. Can’t help with the funding? Help spread the news of the campaign and share the love.
