I've been working on our website by updating products, updating inventory and adding in new products daily as they arrive. Here are a few new batiks, they'd make great masks:

Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org - Maybe yours will be featured in a future newsletter! Someday I'll tell the story of how this all started...
Need a personalized shopping trip? Gwen as been doing video calls on "WhatsApp" - it's amazing that we can be down the street or in Australia with real time shopping- it is so handy! This app is real time video so you can see what you need and Gwen can help assist in getting the best fabrics for your project.
Lastly- Thank you to all who have ordered online. We are getting into a great groove fulfilling orders and most days the orders to be mailed are being sent same day as ordered. Be sure to choose curbside pickup. Our ordering system has been improved to send out email reminders when your order is in progress or ready for pickup. Once you get that email- just pull into our back alley, come in the back door and find your purchase. We are able to sanitize the back area easily with the tile flooring and wire rack system. Deliveries are still available to orders over $50- just let Gwen know!
We are so grateful that Cameron has been able to come to service machines during this crazy time which helps all of us! You get to keep making masks and working on projects and Cameron gets to keep working! He is not currently making house calls at this time for your protection and his. We will update you in the newsletter when he is going to resume house calls. He is here this week and his reservation list is full.
Next service visit: May 8th call today to get on his list for the May date. 406-586-6097
New Machine Service Process:
If you are dropping off a sewing machine for Cameron's service. Gwen will call you to gather all information over the phone, you can drop off at our back door and we will take it from there. Once the service has been completed, Gwen will call you, charge your card and the machine will again be placed on the backdoor rack for pick up!
