Goodbye old year!!

It has been another unusual year. I am closing out the year by getting my booster shot yesterday, and working on training the new puppy. He is doing very well so far and it wont be long before he is the well housebroken and well trained Quilt Pug that you all expect. In the meantime, I am taking some personal pointers from the dog training world that seems appropriate to share and hopefully apply to everything else in the world, and yes even to quilting.

  1. Be prepared
  2. prevent troubles as soon as you see them
  3. Once it’s happened it’s too late to stop, shrug and move on
  4. Pay attention to (reward) the good stuff
  5. Stay calm
  6. take small steps inn the right direction
  7. Have fun safely

It seems like a pretty decent blueprint to get through whatever 2022 is going to throw at us. The Shoppe will be offering more workshops, even some in other locations. I am looking forward to some new collaborations, new merchandise and other finished goods for sale, and more.

To start things off we have a short course on Sashiko and Boro that begins on January 13. That is right around the corner and we are taking registrations now. You will get some historical insight, learn how to mark your designs, and use the traditional needles and thimble, and in the process create a very useful tote bag, or you can leave the handles off and make it a cushion. These ancient techniques are enjoying great popularity right now and you wont want to miss out. Call, text, or message us to reserve your spot. 845 758 8541 Materials list and other details on the workshops page.

We will be closed on New Years Day.

Wishing you all the best in 2022.

    Happy New Year and thanks for sharing such an adorable puppy picture!

    I won’t be able to do much sewing or attend classes or workshops for a while. My December biopsy confirmed a right breast cancer, very small and fast growing. I’ve begun prep for a partial mastectomy next week, followed by chemo and radiation. I have every reason to expect a favorable outcome thanks to services provided by the Dyson Breast Center at Vassar. So I feel hopeful and scared and am looking forward to having everything over and returning ASAP to The Village Fabric Shoppe.
