in love with: Sew Woodstock

ever since moving upstate, i’ve dreamed of having a local sewing shop where i could teach, shop, hang out with like-minded stitchers, and basically call my 2nd home. if i could conjure up this dream place, it’d look exactly like the picture you see above. lucky for me, it’s not a dream but a reality: […]
