Hello! Just wanted to share what has been going on the past few days at The Woolen Willow! We have been very busy moving things around, hanging quilts and getting the new room ready for lots of stitching things! We have a lot of new threads coming in, as well as patterns and kits! We plan for mostly fun, quick, make and take type things! There is more wool and fabric coming in also! Speaking of wool........ we had some fun ladies from out of town in the shop yesterday. Some of them had been in the shop before, and they like to go through our wool scrap bin, where you fill a bag for a steal of a deal! Usually they are on the floor with it spilled out way up front in the small wool room. Well, it is really cramped and usually warm up there when the sun is coming in the big windows in the afternoon, so I offered to carry it back to the cooler part of the shop and spill it out on the carpet for them to sit! They were really happy about that idea, but I felt like there just weren't enough "Good" scraps in the bin! While they were having fun going through it, I went into the room where we keep stuff set aside for kit making and found some great wool scraps for them in bigger pieces! I threw them into the middle of the ladies sitting on the floor and they CHEERED and had so much fun! Still feeling that there wasn't enough for them all to find what they would want, I cut up some fat quarters of wool and threw them into the middle! More cheering of course! It was a lot of fun! So here are pictures of the ladies and the quilts all over the shop in their new spots! More to come, because we are going to paint all the walls in the shop and my husband is re-making the fabric cabinets! Yay to Glen!
This area above, will be our class room area!
