Saturday Marks One Year

Dear Friends,
It is amazing how one year goes by so quickly! Saturday, January 16 marks one year since Leslie and I first walked into 2190 First Street and covered the windows, to begin the remodel!
It was finally time to make Mel's Furniture the new quilt store and our crew of workers had a large task in front of them. We wanted to be able to reopen in the new location by our Seventh Anniversary on February 14th, 2009. The anticipation of our new store was mounting and we even had ladies who decided to get in line early...
It was a long haul, with long days and nights...but with lots of hard work, LOTS of sandpaper for the hardwood floors and over 50 gallons of paint it was finally time for moving day.We filled every truck and SUV we had with all of the store inventory and made the trek across the parking lot. Then began setting the store up! Visit our February 2009 blog post to see the process.


Here we are one year later, the response from all of you about our new home has been amazing! Everyone agrees In Between Stitches has found the perfect spot. It has been truely amazing being a part of Livermore Downtown and we have met so many new friends.


Now we have GREAT....BIG NEWS to share with you...

Such great news. I've always felt the store was warm and inviting. It didn't hurt to be born on February 14th; the same day as the original opening.
