winter 2014

on winter storms and stitching...

We enjoyed a picture perfect Fall here in Midcoast Maine, and it's been a blistery cold and snowy winter so far, but these things are to be expected...

One of the things I love about winter is seeing our customers pop in and out of the store, dodging snowstorms, stocking up on fabric and sewing supplies so they can spend their days tucked inside and crafting while the storms swirl around them. If at all possible, I like to spend these days home myself, with a knitting or hand sewing project to keep me occupied, perhaps a bowl of popcorn and some tea at my side, a fire in the woodstove, an episode of Downton Abbey on the TV, and my little boy Bert (now a curious and busy one-year-old!) playing at my feet.

Sounds like a perfect day, no? It is. Here in Maine we have most definitely perfected the art of "hunkering down."

Whatever you are planning for the coming weeks, whatever is occupying your thoughts and time these days, and wherever it is that you like to "hunker down," we hope you'll find some inspiration here at Alewives Fabrics!
