As a result of the horrendous rains all over Atlanta last week and early this week, our home was flooded on Monday evening. Like lots of cottage businesses, Whipstitch operates out of our home, so we’ve been working non-stop to mitigate the damage, assess inventory, and reconfigure our online shop over the next six weeks or so while the flooded portion of our home is demolished, dried-out and reconstructed. Please be patient with us!
For the time being, the Etsy shop is closed, giving us a chance to re-inventory all our fabrics and trims and adjust our listings. The shop on Peachtree is still open and operating on normal business hours. We hope to re-open our Etsy shop by Saturday, September 26 if all goes well!
Updates are coming with details of the flooding, and the reconstruction–it looks like it might be possible for us to actually improve the Whipstitch studio as a result of the loss (by moving a wall and adding a storeroom): making lemonade wherever we can!
I’ll also post updates with the winner of the Sew-A-Thon, but things happening in threes the way they tend to, my laptop lost its internet connectivity (through a wholly non-flood related incident the same day), so I’m afraid that’s been delayed as well.
We’re sure hoping to come out the other end of this a lean, mean, fabric machine. Stick with us, and thanks to all of you for your patience and kind words!
