Welcome Back!

We are excited to welcome back our customers and friends beginning Monday May 18.

Thank you all for your patience and support over the past weeks. We have been fielding countless phone orders and questions with very limited hours and just a skeleton crew. When we have been less than at our best, thank you for grace.

As we prepare to open our doors for walk-in business, we continue to ask for your patience.

For your safety as well as ours:

MASKS are required, for both staff and customers.

MAXIMUM 5 customers in the store; limit of 3 in a customer group.

Let’s catch up, but DISTANT socializing only - 6 ft intervals.

Hand sanitizer is available.

Hours will be limited - Mon May 18 thru Fri May 22 10 - 5 and Sat May 23 10 - 2
Please check our website or call for current store hours as we may need to adjust weekly.

Regular sanitizing of frequently touched surfaces may require more time - again, patience.

Curbside pickup will continue for those who prefer to place phone orders. We are also diligently working towards online sales capabilities and what/how sewing classes may continue. Keep your eyes open for exciting possibilities!

We have met so many new friends over the phone - we hope to see you soon!

Say what?! How many masks??

We are 6 weeks into Minnesota’s shelter in place. It feels like 6 years. When this started, I am sure you felt like I did: we’ll just hang out for a couple of weeks and certainly by May, everything will go back to the way it was.

May is here. Nothing is the way it was. The one thing that has stayed the same is the generosity of our sewing community. 

From one simple request: would you be willing to put together and donate 50 kits to make 28 masks each for health care workers? Sure. Your willingness to step up has kept us with our heads down, cutting fabric and elastic, putting mask kits together as fast as supplies and womanpower will allow. Because of the commitment of Sew Good Goods, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Allina Health, here is what we have accomplished together: kits to make over 15,000 masks have been donated. Wow! Thank you!

The need continues: for health care workers, seniors, those who are vulnerable and the people who work with them. I will ask again. For those who continue to sew masks to donate, kits (each making 14 - 18 masks) are available. We welcome you to stop by and pick up a kit.

Thank you and I look forward to the day when I can thank you in person, maybe while fondling beautiful fabric and plotting a new project.
