20 years ago I dreamed of teaching classes here at Stonemountain & Daughter in our upstairs discount fabric room. 1996 was a sewing school desert in the bay area. Since we began our school, I have been blessed to see it grow into one of the most successful in-store sewing schools in the country: a place to come and learn how to sew, design and play with our amazing fabric while growing our sewing community. Our classes have helped Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics survive by teaching the next generations how to create and use the fabric they love!
It is with mixed feelings that I announce, for a variety of important reasons; we will not be offering classes after the end of June 2016. I have so much gratitude for the sewing community that has grown with us at Stonemountain & Daughter. Please join me in thanking and showing gratitude for all the instructors, past and present, who have inspired us and shared their gifts with you all. I want to thank my amazing staff for all their support to the teachers, the students, our classrooms and me. It has truly taken a village to provide our community with top notch sewing classes!
It’s been a great ride for 19 years and such an honor to do this school with you! We have taught many thousands of sewists of all ages. Currently, we have 1 – 3 classes each day of the year and have reached an unsurpassed quality level. Now it is time to pass this legacy onto other teachers and businesses in our sewing community. We will have a handout for you to find local places where you can continue to advance your skills and get the sewing support you need.
I’m excited about dreaming into what more is possible for Stonemountain & Daughter and me! We are also thrilled to find a new focus for our upstairs and transform it into a complete designer fabric discount space!
Our heart and primary mission is to provide the highest quality fabric, independent patterns and quality notions at the best prices. This decision will help us survive in this economy and stay focused on serving the community’s fabric needs.
With so much gratitude and hope,
