A: To move into a bigger and better Quilt & Create Studio :-)
It's hard enough to believe that we've only been in our current studio location since May and we're already moving into a bigger and better place. But it's even harder to believe that we only decided to move less than a month ago and have already found the perfect spot....just across the street! To top it off, the new landlord knew we wanted to get in right away and so they began work last week and will be ready for us to move in at the end of this week , after building a kitchenette, installing new tile and carpet, repainting, and some remodeling of the walls.
I don't want to give the whole thing away yet but I'm excited and confident that our current and new customers and friends will feel right at home in this new space. They'll have two and a half times the amount of space that's in our current location to hang out with us and quilt and create. And, because hanging out with friends is always better when it involves food, we'll have a kitchen in which to prepare and serve it instead of the lone microwave on top of the refrigerator in the back room ;-) Now, even our vertically challenged friends can make popcorn or heat up a snack!
The tile and carpet go in tomorrow and then there are just a few finishing touches to attend to before beginning the task of hauling all that we've accumulated since May to the other side of 32nd Street. Best of all, we'll still be close to Quiltz, the quilt shop we've had the pleasure of being next door to in our current location.
Until we get the place just the way we like it, I thought I'd share some pics here of the space as it was just this morning. The full reveal will come soon. I hope you have a chance to visit us here when it's all finished and ready to welcome you.
