Taking Shape

Things down at the packing shed are starting to look like something.

This is my office. Mom, Dad, Steve and Scott keep calling it "Emma's Box". I'm not too partial to that name, but I'm happy to have something that I can make phone calls in! It won't look so much like a box once it has it's door and window and mom's going to hang all of our button holders off of it!

All Framed In

Mom's studio.

Another view of mom's studio. There's going to be a little, corrugated metal roof on that brace.

This is going to be the classroom space. It doesn't look very large in the photo, but it's going to be perfect, we promise!

That's my office there on the left with the classroom space on the right.

Mom's studio on the left, office in the middle with the classroom on the right there.

Mom's studio is there in the middle. All of our fabric is going to be along that wall on the left.

I hope you're enjoying the updates! We'll let you know when we set our move date!

Felted Wedding Bouquets

Beverly, our knitting coach here at the shop, asked Mom and Carin to felt Calla Lillies and Cherry Blossom Branches for her daughter's wedding. We were all SO thrilled with how they turned out!

We're going to have a new home!

It's official. The lease is signed, construction started today and we announced it on Fox40 this morning. So, I guess we're moving our Little Thimble That Could to The Packing Shed at High Hand Nursery in Loomis.

This is going to be our little corner of the packing shed. I really shouldn't say "little" - it's twice the size of the shop we're in now! Isn't that exciting? 1600 square feet of creative goodness!

Mom is going to have a studio there in the corner and I'll have a little office over where the ladders are and THEN to the right of the ladders, in the other corner that you can't really see we're going to have PERMANENT CLASS SPACE!! YAY!!! It'll have 3 BIG tables and OUTLETS for sewing machines! We are SO excited to be expanding our class schedule and being able to provide more sewing classes.

We will be keeping everyone updated on the construction and make sure to mark your calendar for the grand opening! We'll be celebrating with a good old fashioned Halloween Party on Saturday, October 31st!

Talk to you soon!
