We will put the item into a holiday bag with your name on it and hold that item for you.

Neil and I spent the holiday weekend putting up new shelves again and rearanging the shop. We now have more cutting table space too which hopefully will help out when the shop is busy.  New things are coming in all the time.  14 Inch Zippers are in and soon we will have a fun collection of buttons for you to choose from.  Last week some really cute sewing charms from the PinPeddlers arrived.  You can hang the charms on the pewter pins that we sell and we also have spacer beads to add another fun element. Hope you will stop by Sewn with Luv and take a look.

We recently gave them a little over $100 that everyone so generously donated. Linda Palermo sent us a very nice thank you card. So please continue to bring in patterns that you don't need but someone else may want. Every little bit counts!

Coupons will be coming out in the Coweta Shopper again later in Jan.-Feb. The paper hits a different area each week over a 3 week period. So keep a look-out.
