Two Years!!

It's gone by so fast! This month marks the second anniversary of The Shoppe. We are so proud and excited that we have made it this far! We certainly could not have done it without our amazing customers. Everyone has been so kind and supportive and we thank you all! In honor of the occassion, Julie Miller, a customer and friend, gave us these beautiful tulips : )

Aside from our anniversary, April also meant the release of Carrie Nelson's new book, Schnibbles times two, and her book signing at The Shoppe. The event was so much fun! We had a great turnout, which meant Carrie got to sign a lot of books!! She is so much fun and does so much for the store. We appreciate everything she has done for us and we are so excited that her book has been such a success! I know the girls in Rosie's Club feel the same way. Before the book signing, Carrie gave the group a special demonstration on how to make a Tuffett (a pincushion). She also gave away a couple of prizes to some lucky ladies!

If you want to be involved in the next Rosie's Club, starting Fall of 2010, call us at (480) 473-2171 or email us at We are taking names of those who are interested and will send you information about the club as soon as it's available. Sue Maitre, a friend of Carrie's and ours, is the instructor, and she is great, so don't miss out!

Lastly, we just received Jo Morton's latest line, Cocoa Express. It's beautiful! If you liked Ravenwood (blacks) and Indigo Berries (blues), then you'll love this collection. Same patterns, just in browns. The earlier two collections are up on the website and Cocoa Express will be shortly.

Until next time...

Now we just have to find somewhere to put it!

It's a new month, which means new fabric!!

In addition to all of the new collections I blogged about last month, we have received three more in the last couple of weeks. For the reproduction lovers out there, we now have Jo Morton's Ravenwood and Indigo Berries lines. The Ravenwood collection consists of about thirteen bolts of pretty black prints and the Indigo Berries, as you might guess, consists of the same prints, but in blues. They are both beautiful, but what else would you expect from Jo?

For those of you Moda maniacs, we also received the new French General collection, Rural Jardin. The entire collection, as well as the pre-cuts, are now available. All pictures will be up on the website soon!

Also, don't forget to pre-order Carrie Nelson's Schnibbles times two, before April 10th, in order to receive a 20% discount. She will be here on Saturday, April 17th, between 12:30 and 2:30 signing copies!

Until next time...
