Here is my shop's 2016 row. The theme is Home Sweet Home. So I have made it with homespun fabrics. There are a cabin, applique of pine trees surrounding a cabin, and a log cabin block. The pattern will be free starting June 21.
This is my shop's 2015 license plate, and are available now until they are gone. The cost is $5.
I will be receiving new license plates for this up-coming 2016 Row by Row shop hop. They will be shipping soon and will look like this:

I offer so many notions, that I possibly have the most notions in the northern area for a multitude of sewing projects. I carry an entire palette of Jinny Beyer's (150 tonal colors) that are re-stocked regularly. So if you're looking for a particular color, walk up to the palette wall and you're set. I carry canvas, fleece, leather and SILK! I have bulk silk $5 per bag (pieces as large as 8 or so inches) and silk ties for $3 each. You just can't find a shop that carries such a variety.
My shop also has an entire rack of Creative Grid rulers that are made in the USA; AURIfil and WonderFil threads; upholstery fabrics and 1/2 price fabrics (while they last). There is an entire wall of batiks; 18 different kinds of sewing needles; a huge selection of Civil War-type fabrics and, of course, loon fabrics.
My shop is located in a seasonal part of the State. So starting November and going through the winter, the shop will be open Wednesday through Saturday only. So that means my shop will be closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday off-season. Please make a note of it.
I can ship you items if you require it, but do not have an on-line purchasing option at this time.
I accept most credit cards.
Where is my shop?
My shop is located right on Highway 51 in Mercer, right across from the BP gas station. It has a brown fence in front and several very large, pine trees in the front yard. The address is 5244 N US Hwy 51. Look for my sign that has my logo-above on it. The nearest cross-road south is Vaughn Street and Hwy 51.
