Carter and I officially began story time yesterday morning at the Beekman Library. This means we come in to work in the early afternoon on Thursdays, and yesterday I think this worked out well. We walked in to the shop to a disaster of different bottles and liquids on the carpet. Apparently, when everyone else came in yesterday morning they found one of our shelves containing Retayne, Synthrapol, and Best Press on the floor. I'm glad we were not around for Carter to play in the mess! This leads me to my tip of the week:
We love Best Press. It's the only spray starch we use in the shop to iron our fabric. It protects fabric from stains and wrinkles. While other spray starches make the fabric stiff, Best Press does not. It comes in several lovely scents to make ironing more enjoyable!

I am currently working on putting the preorder fabrics from market up on our website, including Atrium by Joel Dewberry and the new 108" backing fabric by Tula Pink.
Also keep your eye out for the brand new Color Me fabrics from Michael Miller. I will be putting them on our website soon. These fabrics are like a coloring book! After your child colors in the fabrics with permanent markers, they can be made into pillowcases, placemats, sundresses... Anything you can think of! I cannot wait for Carter to color in the spaceships!
