On vacation, please check back in 2016!

YCDAHey y’all! Merry Christmastime!

It has been awfully quiet out there…so, I am betting you are running around shopping, wrapping and preparing for a beautiful holiday season. I actually haven’t even shopped a single gift yet, and we don’t even have our Christmas tree yet. Gasp!

Such is the life of a retailer and small business owner at Christmas. It is a whirlwind of activity that makes the days blur together. Thankfully I am in the final push now and will be able to take care of everything we need next week.

Truth be told, I am incredibly grateful to have so many custom orders to fill. In my mind, it is a true honor to make a gift for someone and I know every single one of my customers has put a great deal of thought and effort into choosing a gift that is just perfect for their special person. So, I do put my all and then some into making sure each present turns out just as they planned and arrives on time.

That being said, I am going to post the “On Vacation” sign here at Sewspire until the first of the year. I want to take some time and enjoy the winter break with my children as well. You see, the eldest is turning 21 this year and our youngest is only 7, so I realize how quickly the time passes and know this time we have together as a family is truly special.

In the meantime, please know I am planning some really fun sewing projects for you in 2016 and shall be looking forward to introducing you to my other big ideas in the New Year! Until then, I wish you a blessed holiday filled with love and lots of laughter!

  1. Dear Andrea!!
    Belated Merry Christmas to you and your family. I love that you took a break for the Holidays and Im happy I’m not getting more behind in your projects. I made 25 fruitcakes, 9 different kinds of cookies, double batches, for neighbors and about EIGHT CANDY CATCHER BAGS WITH xmas fabric. Oh how my dear friends & family were impressed!! (Thanks to you!!)
    My beginner quilting class starts in a few weeks. I’m very excited!! I do have to have a urethra/bladder surgery on 12/29 due to an 11 year old bladder suspension surgery MESH. has grown into my urethra. We have a wonderful specislist at Johns Hopkins who believes it’s fixable! I’m sure all will go well. I have to say that sewing has taken away all my stress.
    Thank you so much for your class. I am hoping to get caught up soon into 2016!
    I love looking forward to your new projects!!!
    Happy New Year!!
    Love, Nita Amar

    1. Happy New Year Nita! You have been very busy and productive indeed! I am excited for you to start your quilt class too and will be looking forward to seeing your pretty blocks. So happy to hear you are enjoying your sewing time and the craft is serving you well. I hope your surgery goes as planned and you will heal very quickly. Sending lots of love your way! Andrea
