2nd Saturday is starting December 10th. The fabric has come in and we will be cutting kits soon. The price per kit (fabric and pattern) is $20 a month.  We will keep your charge card information on file (per your signed agreement) and charge you when you get your kit. You have the option of paying for the entire project up front but you will only get a kit each month. There will be a lecture the Second Saturday of the month (attendance optional). The kits will be available then. This project should last 6-8 months. You can sign up any time.  The first meeting start on December 10th at 10 am.  This will be a lecture and organizational meeting.  

We know you have all been waiting to see where we are going to move and who the first person was to guess correctly.  First of all, here is a little background.  First our landlord was about to renew our lease for almost $1100 increase a month.  We knew that was not affordable so we started looking.  At the same time friends of our was opening a new business.  They planned to be in by October 1.  Pasco County Permit office had other ideas.  Our landlord let us stay till December 1.  That is why we are having 3 Black Fridays (so we didn't have to move so much).  Then the new move in date changed to January.  That meant we would have to close down & move twice.  Didn't want that so asked landlord if we could stay till February and they came back with a new one year lease to be able to renew for the 2nd year.  We finally decided because of our customers, my health and I hate to say this age (ugh).  Sew we are staying where we are!  And the winner of the Location Contest is Penny Hoyt.  She gets a $20 store credit.  She was the first one to say NOWHERE!

Who could have predicted the fall retreat would be held during hurricane Ian? We were so lucky to be spared and did our best to not let the weather dampen our sewing days. So Cathleene said "Let's do it again!" Please mark your calendars for March 20-24th 2023 when we will once again drag threads all over the Hyatt Place Hotel in Lutz. The staff there are fantastic! We love them as much as they love us. How wonderful to feel welcome.

The retreat will meet during the week Monday - Friday, with the room open from 7am to midnight M-Th and 7am to 8pm on Friday. Just think, pack up all your stuff and unload only once. It is a great chance to start new projects or finish those UFO's. Along the way, you will spend time with old friends while making new ones.

The Hyatt Place Hotel is at 26000 Sierra Center Blvd. Lutz, FL 33559, near exit 275, at I-75 and SR56. A block of rooms will be offered after the first of the year. The price remains the same as the fall retreat. For all 5 days in the sewing room, the cost is only $180 with breakfast included. Get your registration in early so that you are guaranteed to join in the fun. You can pay a $50 non-refundable deposit now to hold your spot, then pay the balance of $130 by December 31, 2022. Get your deposit in quick, the seats fill fast. There will also be a waiting list in case we can graduate to a larger room if enough people sign up.
