This Saturday we will all Celebrate the Independence of this Great Nation. This means different things to different people as it should, I hope it brings you all peace and joy, friendship and family, and you all are safe and healthy. And I would like to take the extra moment to thank all service members and their families for their great sacrifices to help keep this nation and our freedoms secure. I am forever in your debt and humbled by your sacrifices.
Old Alley will be Closed Saturday - Sunday July 4th and 5th in recognition of the Holiday. Hope to see you all next week.
In at Old Alley well new shelving, samples, fabrics and notions. If you have not been there in awhile you should stop by and check out all the changes. We would love to see you. My favorite thing about owning the store is the people I met and the conversations we have, and lets not forget the Fantastic Staff I have I could not do it without them. Staff Members include Lori, Sheri, Briana and Trudy. They are all great people with tremendous skills and great personalities, stop by and say hello you will be glad you did.
We have so much new stuff it was hard to find places for them, if you stop in today you may see empty slots but trust me they will not stay that way. If you have not been told this yet Covid has caused a slight ripple in most things, manufacturing of fabric is one of them, Not only did it push back production the Mask making has ran the world out of things like solid fabrics. Black and White are the hardest to come by some are out to October to replenish. Other colors are also delayed, and the collections for some have been delayed weeks or months. So I never seem to know what I am getting and when. Oh and thread to, if you need white, black or common color blending thread anytime in the next few months buy it when you see it, super hard to come by lately.
I heard today that the Backyard Blooms collection Designed by Cluck Cluck Sew for Windham Fabrics (I ordered this for May delivery) is finally shipping next week so watch for that maybe two weeks for us to get it.
We get new stuff almost daily, might be just a bolt or two and some notions but maybe 5 collections :-) we try to post them on Facebook as we unbox them so watch for that.
Other things of interest Friday July 17th there will be a Fat Quarter Sale, all fat quarters will be $2.00, some exclusions apply..Fat Quarter bundles, Quilt Minnesota Fabrics, and we will gladly cut any fat quarter for you but those will not be $2.00 they are the existing. These will be staged in various spots in the store for social distancing measures.
