Sew What, 2009 is a New Year..
Sew What? Yes it is now 2009, where does the time go? This is the year to take advantage of Mary Jo's Cloth Store great selection online and at the store. I was in the store browsing for fabric last week. Wow, the place was packed and I found this a remarkable thing considering the economy and the tough times that have fallen on our country.
Browsing around got me to thinking about the "Mary Jo's Cloth family". We have a unique understanding of our customers because we take the time to listen to your stories and look at your projects. It was fun to hear Mother's talking to Daughters and Granddaughters about Easter Dresses, Wedding Dresses, Curtains and even trim for a Pillow. I had a great conversation with a gal in the "Fat Quarter Section". She has been shopping at Mary Jo's Cloth Store for years. She is a regular blog reader and enjoyed the tips and projects featured in this column every week. The energy in the store is tremendous and heady. It was so busy that Mary Jo was cutting fabric and talking to customers. Yes it takes a village.
The Community Page is coming along, however we need your help. We have created this area of the website to help fellow sewers be inspired and get new ideas and even tell us about their businesses that involve Mary Jo's Cloth. Do you sew, are you a seamstress, designer, quilter or a DIY diva who would like to create magical projects without spending much money? We want to hear from you, we need to hear from you, send us your beautiful projects with a descriptive paragraph so we can either post it on the Community page and/or feature it on this blog. We thank everyone who has sent us an email with photos, it is always so much fun to get to "Know" our customers.
Happy New Year and may 2009 be filled with life's tender mercies, creativity and happiness.
