5/10/18 - Free-motion Quilting classes re-scheduled for June!

~Scissor Sharpening is here!~

Here's a great opportunity to sharpen up those dull scissors!  Steve Hansut will be performing this service.  

How it works:  Steve will be picking up scissors at the shop on Wednesdays and dropping them off on Fridays of the same week.  

Pricing will be as follows:

Scissors with up to a 4-inch blade:  $5.00
Dressmaker & Medium Scissors:  $7.00

Please note:  Payment is cash-only, due at pickup.

Please note that some scissors can't be sharpened because of specific metal content and/or structural problems and all sharpening will be at Steve's discretion.  If your scissors are unable to be sharpened, they will be returned at no cost to you.

Scissors must be dropped off at the shop by 5pm on Wednesdays.

~Ruler of the week~

Deb Tucker's Square Squared

Available now at the Crow for 30% off!

The Square Squared (Square2) is an all-in-one tool that gives you a window template for accurately cutting the center square, a chart printed right on the ruler for the recommended size to cut the triangles sewn to the four sides of the center square and a trim down section on the ruler that simplifies the alignment of ruler to fabric unit and allows everyone to clean up the unit to a precise measurement every time.
