So happy to be back in the shop, grateful for the support of our partners at Destination Downtown Lancaster and Fairfield (Park) National Bank, and all the positive wishes from our friends who allowed us to hold onto their class fees so we could reschedule their class visits – it meant the world to me to have your confidence. The break in the action gave me a chance to consider all I’d learned in our first few months of opening and I think you’ll love where we’re going. More details here…

I will be reconnecting will all our quilt block creators and signature stitchers by June 8th to get all our blocks together and the quilting done. Our goal (thank you, Andrea Verley!) is to have the Community Quilt ready for a July 4th unveiling.  This project has turned out to mean more than we could have ever anticipated in these difficult times. Learn more about this project…

We’ve got more than 30 classes you can request as a Private Class if you have at least two people interested! If it’s just you, send me an Open Class Request and we’ll find you a partner and get the class listed for anyone to join.  For the month of June, we’re limiting classes to four people, hoping for six in July. If you and a group of up to five friends would like to schedule a Private Circle, Sit & Sew or Crafting time at Rabbit & Rocket, you can learn more here about booking Private Circles.

See you soon!
