WE HAVE MOVED!

SEW IT UP STUDIO HAS MOVED! 

OUR NEW ADDRESS IS:
MAYFAIR VILLAGE SHOPPING CENTER
740 GRAPEVINE HIGHWAY, HURST, TEXAS

THE BEFORE PICTURES:
The carpet is out and the walls are coming down!
  

                  Boy oh boy does it take a lot of work to move an entire store!  Of course, it is not just a matter of packing up the merchandise and transporting it to the new place. No, no, first you must tear down and renovate the new place! I knew the new location had great potential . . . and after tearing out seven walls, removing tile, ripping out the old carpet and linoleum, hauling off all of the debris, replastering, painting and replacing every single light fixture, it was finally ready to move into. And, who did all of this labor???  Why, my husband! ~ the most supportive, loving man that I know! He truly believes in me!


Here are some pictures the shop now ready to move in. . . .  some of the fixtures have been moved over.



This will be our classroom someday soon! 
Check out how high these boxes are stacking up!




And, then we started moving the fabric! It was amazing that we had so much to move. Hundreds and hundreds of bolts - we should have counted them!
So, we started getting the fixtures situated and putting the fabric and trims out.

Each day, it gets better & better! We have new gorgeous white shelving.


And, now we are getting our huge assortment of patterns organized!



Look - how pretty! Our samples are now out on display for our kits!



Here is a picture of the outside of the shop - NO SIGN YET! but hopefully our banner will arrive soon!

  7. Hi from Iowa! I doubt that I will ever be in town to visit your shop so I am glad that you have posted pics. What a great space, I wish you all well. I love the web site and have purchased only one kit that I made up quickly and had great reviews from my sewing friends. Your service is fast and friendly. I do have a photo of the panel skirt put together with the serger, but am not computer literate enough to get you one. Maybe when my daughter with the tech knowledge visits, I will send on the photo. Thank you for your vision and creativity. Mary-Ella
