It is often said that when one door closes another one opens.
Our doors have been required to close several times over this past year, and we have had to find new ways of doing things to keep up with the demands of our growing customer base. Our inventory has expanded, and our shop has seemed to have gotten smaller. Parking is an ongoing struggle, and we wished we had a classroom to have sew days, classes and events. It has become clear that we have run out of room to grow, and we've been looking for a larger location. We love our hometown of Millbrook, but nothing larger could be found that would meet our needs.
A few weeks ago, Cyndy of From the Heart Quilt Shoppe announced her plans to retire and close her storefront. We have admired her shop and longed to have something like it ourselves. We approached her about the possibility of us moving into her location and it quickly went from being a possibility to now becoming a reality.
We will be moving our shop to Bethany this summer!
For those unfamiliar with the area, the new location in Bethany is about 15 minutes from our current store. There we will have much more space to spread out with our Gammill Long Arms, Brother sewing machines, Accuquilt, thread and fabric, as well as expand our product lines..
We are thrilled to also announce that we will bringing Bernina Sewing machines to the Kawarthas!
We’ll share more on that later, but for now, more about Bethany!
There, shipping will be more efficient with a dedicated area, and we will have more room for machine service. We will have plenty of socially distant classroom space in the adjoining chapel and Zach will even have a permanent studio set up for filming videos, demonstrations and virtual classes.
We are beyond excited for this new adventure!
We thank Cyndy and Steve for their enthusiastic support and wish them all the best. We hope moving forward this place can continue to be an enjoyable place for quilters to visit, learn, shop and have fun!
Thank you for joining us on this ride. We couldn’t be doing it without your ongoing support. We’ll give you more details as we get closer to our moving date.
We can’t wait!
