As we wind down 2020, there is hope on the horizon. One thing many of us have done lately is to look at all we can be grateful for in our lives. Here at the Studio, we would like to thank all of you, our customers. We are so grateful that you have hung in there with us as we went through this year of many changes in our business. Thank you for continuing to support us.
November has been a bit different this year as many of us are staying home, finishing up UFOs and maybe making lots of holiday gifts for friends and family. At the Studio we are looking into the archives and re-exploring some quilts that Jinny created awhile back. This month our attention goes to Labyrinth. Read on to find out more.
Fall has arrived and we all just love those rich colors that come with it! Look for a new autumn bundle as a weekly web special, inspired by the beautiful tree in the opening of this month’s newsletter. We also received Jinny’s Malam VIII batik collection which includes often hard to find brights and lights.
Although we have adjusted quite well to our new space, we do apologize for the frequent shipping delays, thank you all so much for your continued support and patience as we work to get caught up on orders. This month we received a fun new book in stock by Ricky Tims. This book is for the readers of all ages!
We have survived the move! Now that we are all settled in our new space, Jinny will have the opportunity to bring you more online videos, including expanding on the border print lessons that we bring you each month.
