(Let’s hope this finally will upload and post.)
A disclaimer first: While I do help out up at Sew Crazy occasionally, I am not receiving pay or compensation for writing this review. This may be seen as a bit of advertising, but it is done out of my own free will. This happens to be one of my favorite stores and i wanted to share it with you.
“Sew Crazy: you don’t have to be crazy to shop here, we’ll train you!”
Gwyn, the owner of Sew Crazy, opened up the store almost two years ago. If you are down in the dumps when you walk in, you can rest assured you’ll probably be laughing shortly thereafter and smiling on your way out. She just has that type of personality. And an amazing memory. Visit a time or two and after that, she will most likely greet you by name any time you walk in the door. (I’m lucky when i can remember my own name! So I’m personally amazed by this).
I hear someone in the background saying, “well, where’s the goodies??”
Here they are! Luscious fabrics. She has bright colors, she has muted colors. Prints. Solids. Stripes! Shadowplay! Swirls! ! (Sadly I did not take individual bolt pictures. )
There are numerous items throughout the store that have been made by the ladies who help out at the store. Just about anything you see that’s a finished product can be offered as a class as well.
Such as Tiny Fancyass Hats:
She sells the small stream iron (love mine! !) And there is a class to make an iron caddy to go with it:
Table runners, coasters, hot pads, and bowl cozies can be made during the Make-It-And-Take-It Saturdays. They can also be done separately as classes. Here is a matching set:
And here are some of the bowl cozies that are already made up (also available in kits):
Need some proof that the ladies of Sew Crazy are, well, crazy?
Customers are not innocent either, some more guilty than others:
I also have pictures of some of the quilts hanging around the shop but i want to talk with Gwyn before posting those pictures first, make sure there aren’t any copyright issues with the original pattern quilts.
Let me see what other pictures I can share:
My favorite, the jelly rolls! :
Handmade soaps made by one of the ladies that works there. And they are wonderful. I’ve been using the oatmeal one and my skin is loving it.
That looks like all i can share right now. If you are ever in Michigan, look up Sew Crazy, LLC and come check it out!
