Opening Day!

Whew, it's finally here. Today we opened! The ribbon cutting is at 6pm. There will be pictures to come later on. Come on down and if you stay late you'll be able to experience Galveston's ARTWalk.

Rue Saint Germain Has Arrived!

I can't tell you how much I love seeing that big, boxy, brown truck pull up outside the studio. My friendly UPS man told me that fabric is number 7 on the list of heaviest boxes! Yikes! I would feel bad, but I just love opening boxes (especially when my fabric is inside). Rue Saint Germain is here, safely in the shelves, waiting for someone to come and make beautiful quilts out of it. Also, if you want to get some for yourself, we've listed it in the online shop (

Speaking of new inventory, we also received our first shipment from K. Hall Studios. If I thought boxes of fabric were fantastic, it's got nothing on boxes of sweet smelling soaps! Each sent is better than the last. I wanted to sink into a giant claw-footed bathtub with overflowing bubbles.

We're still getting ready for the Grand Opening on August 28th. Here are some projects we've been working on.
