I’m running away to Paris for a bit.

There’s a lot life has to offer…… And it’s up to us whether or not we “go with the flow”, grab life by the horns”, or “just get out of the way”. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to travel to Paris, always one of my dreams, and soak up the culture, take in the sights, and yes probably get lost while wandering the streets. The shop will be closed for a couple of days, April 9 – 11, and then will resume regular hours. Open Sew on April 14th, 9am-2pm is still a go so don’t hesitate to drop in and stitch!
