i learned something new today

i learned something new today, originally uploaded by jhscrapmom.

i really did.
i learned how to cut fabric.


because i have me a little job:).

my friend hatice is opening up a lovely store in cornwall, ontario called bee tree craft.
it is filled with lovely organic fabrics and wools, patterns, organic baby onesies and gifts, pretty things made and pretty things being made.

this is hatice ( and a detail for a baby blanket she is making)

the store has actually been online for a bit now, and will serve primarily as a studio space for the creation of custom bedding ( oh, the cuteness of the baby fabrics is ridiculous…).

however…wednesdays are all mine:).
i get to play worker bee ( get it? bee tree craft? worker bee?) and will happily cut scads of fabric for you to create something beautiful with!

friday mornings i will be there as well, organizing a playgroup and place to meet for local parents. a bit of a different idea for a *store* but a natural fit once you realize that hatice is not just trying to build a business but a bit of a community as well.
i will be sharing more details about the store soon.

but did i mention i can cut fabric now?
in a straight line?
and that i know what *fat corners* are?

edited to add…***okay, i completely entertained hatice with my error – it is *fat QUARTERS* not *fat corners* that i now know how to make ***

it has been awhile since i learned something new. this is fun.

(there may be some photo type stuff going on as well…you didn’t think i would leave my camera at home, did you?)

    there is yarn:)). i should probably call it that…i grew up calling it wool! we are just finishing up all the last minute details like a facebook page, twitter, final hours ( as they are staggered as she manufactures the custom bedding on site during the week:)) and fun stuff! the store is ready to go, i just needed to be trained…that could have gone either way;)

    i LOVE fabric stores – i have a huge stash of fabric but kinda fell off the sewing wagon. maybe your gorgeous fabric photos will inspire me 🙂 sounds like a fantastic space…
