Our FIRST "Meet the Designer"! Featuring Brooke Floyd of Debbie Brooke Designs and Five Eighth Seams!

Brooke Floyd - Designer
Brooke Floyd - Designer

Brooke is a native to Dayton and transplanted to Charleston, SC. She loves making up her own patterns and following bag patterns she finds. Her best advice for sewers is, "Don't sweat the small stuff and always blame any mistake on the bobbin." Her measuring tape, loop turner, chalk pen, and seam ripper are the notions she can't live without.

We hope you all are surviving the cold. It has been cold here in Dayton Ohio. Our shop is warm and cozy. We've been open 1 year and 4 months and we've come so far. 

If you have 37 seconds check out our newest 2014 PBS spot. I am sure you will be as impressed with it's quality as we are. 

And Thank You all again, you made this happen for two little ladies with big dreams.

Closing for Our Move

Comment

Hi friends!! Don't forget we're moving Friday and Saturday and will be CLOSED.

We'll have our Fleece Tie Blanket class at 16 Brown Street and then after that all the furniture goes to 261 Wayne Ave in the Oregon District. Spots are still open for the class.

The new shop looks amazing and we can not wait for you all to see it. Our landlord has been wonderful and we hope to make him proud!

Thank you Mary, Matt, John and everyone else that put welcome cards and gifts under our door. Thank you to our currant landlord Mike Elsass from Color of Energy Gallery for being so awesome and thank you to the two new shops moving into our spot Spice Paradise Dayton and The Bearded Barber for your patience with us.
