We are so proud and pleased to announce that Always In Stitches will be one of the 10 shops featured in the Fall/Winter edition of Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler magazine, due out Sept. 8.
“This is a huge, huge honor for us,” said Shop Manager Capi Saxton. “Being featured in Quilt Sampler is like winning the Academy Award for independent quilt shops. We were almost speechless when we found out earlier this year, could hardly keep it a secret – but had to for four months – and still couldn’t believe it when we were introduced last week at the Spring Quilt Market.”
It has been a whirlwind of behind-the-scenes, undercover activity since we were notified in January. Once the shop was selected, we had less than two months to design, choose fabric, piece and complete a quilt that will be included in the multi-page article about Always In Stitches. A photography crew spent two days in the shop this spring, and there have been multiple telephone interviews.
A panel of quilt experts reviews applications from across the country to select the 10 shops. Nearly 3,000 shops were eligible.
“Every person who has shopped, visited or taken a class at Always In Stitches has a part of this recognition, because you are the people that inspire us to be our best,” said Lyneen Burrow, owner. “We have a wonderful staff serving terrific customers that want top-quality goods for their needlework. It’s a team worthy of the award.”
At Always In Stitches, located in Noblesville, IN, you will be surrounded by only the best fabric, yarn, wool, notions, and sewing machines. We have a spacious shop with classroom space as well as safe spots for kids to play and comfortable seating for non crafters to wait while enthusiastic sewists enjoy the view.
Our expert staff is happy to help with any handicraft project. We offer prompt, professional long-arm quilting services at reasonable rates. Our monthly calendar includes varied classes in sewing, knitting and crocheting taught by experienced teachers. Many special events are scheduled throughout the year including bus tours, trunk shows, demonstrations and specialty classes.
We have an extensive line of JANOME sewing, embroidery, and serger machines on display for you to choose from when making important machine purchases. Our JANOME certified service technician will gladly service any make or model of sewing machine with quick turnaround time at affordable prices. You may also rent JANOME sewing machines for your personal use in our shop or in your home.
It is our privilege to be a distributor of the American made Handi Quilter Long Arm Quilting Machines. Should you want to finish your own quilting projects you may rent time in our Handi Quilter studio after completing a brief training class.
Always In Stitches is a Christ-centered company where we respect people, we are responsible for our actions and we build our success on relationships. Please allow us the opportunity to share our love of crafting with you today.
