Frequently asked questions
What software do you use to design patterns?
I do the brunt of my designing in Microsoft Powerpoint. Beyond that I'm not going to tell you my secrets. If you want to try your hand at pattern design without investing money in products like EQ8, here are three great products that I have used in the past that are free to use.
What hours are you Open?
We are open online 24/7 for your shopping convenience! If you are planning a trip to our store please check out our Calendar and Events page. Our open hours very depending on time of the year, events, weather, and the heath of the owner/operator(aka me).
Why do you close the store when you are ill or out of town? Why don't you hire/find someone to watch the store?
What I have notcied in the 6+ years I have been is business is that the majority of my customers come to my store because of me, my opinions, and my knowledge.
Do you hem pants, replace zippers, sew curtains, mend clothes, etc and sew forth?
While I have the knowledge and skills to do all of these things, they are not currently part of my business structure. I only have sew many hours in my day and I have to devote those to running my Quilt Shop and Design Studio. I do have friends who do these things on the side in their spare time and I am willing to hook you up with them if you drop by.
Do you alter bridal/prom/formal wear?
NO! I don't know anyone else who does either.
Will you make me a quilt?
.......Maybe. I am not against doing a custom sewing job every now and then. Give me the details here and I'll see if your idea intrigues me.
