The First Week

Welcome to the NEW In Between Stitches Quilt Store!

WOW the response has been amazing to the new place! We appreciate all of your kind words and gifts. I think we all agree that the hard work paid off....we hope you love your store as much as we do! If you haven't been to the new place yet, you won't be disappointed. People have said it makes "Downtown Livermore just glow", at In Between Stitches, "the sun is always shining". Leslie and I both had to do a drive by. It is sure fun to see at night.

The day we opened, we had shooters from Digs Studio on hand to capture the wonderful day. We started with a toast to Thank all of the Girls for their hard work and to a fun day!

The crowds started pouring in soon after! Everyone was so thrilled and a little "in need" of fabric. Being closed just one week, the ladies were out of thread, batting, and so much more!

Even Harley was in on the day, he begged to not be left at home. So his job, as usual was to be the official greeter. He also sported our newest In Between Stitches tote bag.

All in all, it has been a fun week, seeing all of your smiling faces and delight at the new place. I think we all thought we would have time to get settled into the new place, but then we looked ahead at the calendar. The March Maddness Shop hop starts March 4th. Oh well, there is time to settle later. In the meantime we have blocks to pack, kits to make, and so much more!

In Stitches,
Leslie and Melisa

The Grand Reopening! February 14, 2009

HI Everyone,
Thank-you to everyone that came out for the Opening Weekend! We are so glad that you love your new quilt store. It was really so much fun to put the new store together. Rhiannon and Derek were our official photographers and we should have some of the pictures from them this week.
Many comments from those that visited were the skylights are awesome, the lights are just right, and you love the floors. The only part of the building that was unchanged by us were the four walls and the skylights. We added all of the paint, lights, interior walls, and architecture. Don't you love the floors, they were hidden underneath the carpet and 5 or 6 layers of carpet pad. The Douglas Fir Floors are around 94 years old.
Until we have our pictures, check out this slideshow of moving day.

Drum Roll Please

Tomorrow is the big day, do you know where your favorite quilt store is located?
Have you taken the time to drive down First Street in Livermore. The new awning is in place and the signs will go up today. Leslie is busy dressing the windows and Melissa is making sure all the newest fabric will be on the shelves for tomorrow. The ladies who make up the wonderful shop employees have been hard at work to make sure the store looks perfect.

I have a secret, Melissa has been holding back the newest collections to introduce tomorrow. So come by early, we will be opening the doors at 10am. Valentine's Day 2002 was a day to remember for In Between Stitches, let's make Valentine's Day 2009 even more memorable.

I can hardly wait for the new store to be filled with the energy of the In Between Stitches friends and the excitement of quilting bliss. Until then, have a lucky Friday.

XOXO Rhiannon (the one that is not Melissa) LOL

Can you sense the anticipation?

Friends, we can hardly wait to introduce the new store on Saturday. We have felt so much love this week as customers have been stopping by and are ready to shop.
Below are a few customers already lined up to shop.

Since we didn't open the doors, they decided to try to see in another way.

Join us Saturday as we open our doors on First Street. It is going to be a day not to miss filled with gifts, contests, prizes and celebration for our new location and seven year anniversary. XOXO Melissa and Leslie
