Y’all. We are having a BIG week this week. Not only do we have obscene amounts of new fabric coming in, but we just learned (thanks to Diana, our uber-manager, who keeps her finger on the pulse of the city and makes sure we find stuff out first thing!) that Whipstitch was voted one of the Best of Atlanta 2011 by Creative Loafing!
If you’re not from Atlanta, every year local indie paper Creative Loafing publishes a list of the best restaurants, shops, arts venues and more all over the city. A combination of staff picks and reader favorites creates a list that is a big honor, and that I’m delighted Whipstitch is named this year as Best Stylish Sewing Stuff in the city! Read the blurb that came out today:
Huge thanks and hugs to every one of our customers, both in Atlanta and online, who keep us on our toes, who encourage us to experiment and try new things, who come and take classes, who shop with us and hang out with us and drop by and check in on us. You make Whipstitch what it is, and I think I speak for every member of our happy staff when I say we’re looking forward to being part of your sewing for many years to come!
