We also have patterns from amazing designers such as

We also surround this with boxes from Lone Elm Lane, finishing pieces by Lady Dot, and again so much more.

We encourage you to bring your current project and join us for a morning or an afternoon. There are several comfy spots to sit (next to a cat or two), and there is always laughter and inspiration. There are also great antique shops, yummy places to eat, and a sense of stepping back in time, just outside our doors.

In a nutshell – we have a lot of great stuff! The journey is walking through the rooms of our amazing historic building and coming across another gem of luscious inspiration.

Enjoy and explore – and if you are interested in learning one of our crafts, we would love to help you learn as well!   Just call the shop to coordinate a time to come in.
