One Door Closes and Another TWO Open

I've blogged about a fabulous store in my neighborhood before called Material Possessions - a quilt shop.  However, it is with regret that I must blog today to be the bearer of sad news.  Jack and Wendy Hager have had to close their shop due to the recession.  They opened Material Possessions March 4, 1995.

Wendy is designing patterns now and will be attending Road to California's Quilters Conference and Showcase in January and Quilt Festival in July as Material Possessions Studios.  


A former employee - Elisa Reagan of Material Possessions has opened a new shop in the same location.  It is called Sacred Moondance Creative Sewing Studio.  Address: 22600C Lambert Street #905. Lake Forest, CA 92630.  I understand that she is receiving new product daily and is planning classes for the new year.  

The hours are Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5:30pm. Telephone is (949) 583-9336.  You can request an e-mail bulletin if you'd like by e-mailing Elisa at sacredmoodance@att.net as well.


Another new store Sewing Party has opened up in Laguna Hills, CA.  However, you do not have to live here to take advantage of their goods.  They also have an on-line store!

On another note, please read the update on my status as a grand-dog-mother in the post below**

The economy has caused so many losses. I'm sure you'll miss that store.
Oh, hear the music...took a while to load, and guess I wasn't on your blog long enough yesterday. Shame on me! LOL!
Hugs,

Thanks for mentioning the opening of these two quilt shops. Sacred Moondance also has a website up at sacredmoondance.com.

That's always sad news about stores closing. Unfortunately I'm afraid we will see more as time goes on. That's too bad about the grandbaby, but I give your son credit for realizing it was too much, that indicates a mature decision.

That completely breaks my heart! That store had the most amazing selection of gorgeous fabrics and quilting accessories. I am so very sad. So many wonderful stores are getting swallowed up...
