Hello everyone from Spruce it Up Quilt Shop & Quilting Services!
The GRAND OPENING last Tuesday was fabulous! Women and men came in 2s and 4s all day and stayed for hours! My sister was here to help out and we had a great day chatting with the visitors and selling fabric.
Lolah was ready and as people came in, I asked them to sign their name on the sample piece. It seemed like everyone enjoyed the experience. The sample comes down tomorrow morning... one feature of the quilt shop is the ability to rent time on Lolah. My first rental day is tomorrow and Lolah will be put through her paces before the customer walks in. This client is very excited to try her hand at this and I believe she'll do really well if I use her practice pantograph to judge her skills. It will definitely be exciting for me.
Roxane from Scrap, quilt and stitch has forwarded the last block! Block 11 was a joy to stitch although it's bitter sweet since this means the end of stitching this beautiful quilt.
Once my client is done renting space on Lolah, this quilt top may be next in line!! Can't wait to quilt it!
It's been a busy week at Spruce It Up Quilting... opening day, shop duties, lessons on new equipment, brochures to design, print and deliver, finish some blocks and tops, household duties, Father's day... life goes on outside the shop doors despite the shop being in our own home. If you're ever in the area, please stop by to say hello. We can sit on the deck (or the porch if it's raining) and we'll chat . Bring the quilt you're working on and we can share in our mutual pastime! I would love to see and hear about your projects. Remember, this is a friendly shop... I'll save you a chair!
