Sending warm thoughts your way…

It really has taken me this long to get to where I could write to you again. My first week of shutdown felt like I was in shock… nothing was as I had expected it to be only a week before and I couldn’t quite get my head around what  was the new state of the world. Fortunately I’ve since spoken with enough of you to know that I was not alone in that reaction and, like you, I’m beginning to come out of that state and into a place of gratitude for all that is still OK in my world. Keeping in touch with our friends and family is so critical at this time and we are inordinately fortunate that we have the technology that allows us to do that.
So in part this blog post is just a reaching out to say that I sincerely hope that all is well with you and your dear ones and that I appreciate your friendship and the rich creative spirit you contribute to my life. We are blessed.
A number of you have been in touch looking for assistance with some small needed item for a project so I also want to explain what I’m doing. With Covid-19 I am no longer open for individuals to come into my studio. I sympathize with the frustration of having our stores closed. I am most willing to try to help you get needed quilting and sewing supplies by working through email, phone, text or curb-side help. Call, text or email me about what you need and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. 
I can help with…
Masterpiece and King Tut piecing and quilting threads
505 spray
Silk batting
Wool batting
45 mm rotary blades (the Japanese steel ones are back in stock and $32 for 10 blades)
28 mm rotary blades

Be well… stay safe… create joy for yourself and those dear to you.
