Saturday was our Grand Opening Celebration! The shop looked fabulous (if I may say so) and was full of wonderful sewers all day long. Kay Whitt brought us lots of her gorgeous samples early in the morning ~  giving us plenty of time to decorate.  She has the most amazing talent and not just for designing her own line of patterns; Serendipity Studio. Her selection of fabrics is stunning and boy, can that girl sew!  Many designers have others sew up their patterns, but not Kay. She does all of her sewing and does it impeccably. Everyone had a wonderful time visiting with her. She is a delight!  And getting to look at her garments and bags up close was a real treat. She even wrote a blog post about her day with us which was quite complimentary. Everyone should go read it! She has some great pictures.

Jane Stewart, who is my rep from Moda Fabrics, also was in attendance. She was demoing some of her favorite notions in our new classroom and had a stack of yummy newly released books to peruse. She has been ever so helpful to me over the last few weeks getting us stocked up with only the best! Why she even came out to the shop about a week ago and spent several hours helping us get our notions wall all pretty. I am so grateful to her.

Naturally, I had stressed all week trying to get everything done in time, but I did had a lot of help. Many thanks go to Janice, Linda and my hubby! He was even doing some last minute painting on Friday. All of us are very proud of how Sew It Up Studio has shaped up. Of course, I have a lot more plans for the shop over the course of the next few months . . . :)
