SHARING STITCHES IS EXPANDING
Sharing Stitches has moved from Shari’s home to a commercial building with an elevator. Woohoo, no more stairs to climb unless you want to.
The new location is 492 W. Second St., Suite 201, in Xenia.
Not only do they offer longarm rental and custom quilting, but they are continually adding fabric by the bolt, pre-cuts, batting and notions.
In keeping with their philosophy of making quilting fun, affordable and educational, they are expanding and adding a classroom. Their first class will be a bottle gift bag. Perfect time to get started for Christmas gifts or any occasion depending on the fabric. The quiltsmart interfacing to make the bag is included in the cost of the class. The cost is only $40. Held on Saturday, August 20, at 10 a.m. You can contact them at email@example.com, (937)479-8343, www.sharingstitches.com, sharingstitches on facebook or they’d love for you to stop by and visit.
Leanne and Shari are looking forward to your visit.
