And goes out like a lamb

Or at least it feels quiet and peaceful and the temperature is warming up!

April is a new month and the flowers are on their way. I watched Peggy Sagers on her YouTube channel last night and was, as usual, inspired to get sewing for spring. She had a good overview of what the world says we should be wearing this season along with some sage advice on whether or not we need to wear it 🙂

Here’s our calendar for April. Hancock Fabrics will most likely be open for most of the month. We’ll keep you updated.

    Kristin and Debbie,

    I just completed your wonderful serger class and have decided by purchase a new serger. Do you have recommendations as to what to look for – brand and model? There are so many to choose from and I know you have much more experience in this area. Thanks a million for your input!!
