 A feature we love at Spruce It Up is to apply the binding while the quilt is loaded. It is so much faster but it does require a steady hand... a skill Lise possesses.

It's not always quiet while someone is on Lolah! There's hustle and bustle going on here! Check out the Show and Tell page (look on the header for it) and see the work brought in that week.

Marie announced an Ocean Waves Bargello class:

Shortly after the sale we received a new order of fabrics! Yes we do get excited to see new bolts!

Friends dropped in to see the new fabrics...

and chose their favorites for the Bargello class! Here the girls are looking through a value finder.

We do take time for ourselves! Sew evening with friends... Despite what the sign says, the shop was closed and it was after-hours! Hollie brought her Margaritaville and treated us all to a refreshing drink... dinner by our in-house chef followed.

Take time for yourselves! Have a sew day!
