This is not easy to say.....
I have been working very hard this fall to get Humble back on its feet. It's been wonderful reconnecting with many of you and teaching sewing, serger and craft classes has been sooo rewarding! My trouble is that my mission and intention with Humble is slightly self defeating. I have been and still am devoted to keeping my prices low, keeping a cute and tidy shop, and personally connecting with customers. I think we need this, this community and this world.

September 2016 News
I hope everyone has had plenty of time to rest and play this summer! Over the past few months we have had some substantial shifts. Many of you may have noticed that I wasn't around much. I took some much needed time with my family and for my health. I am now fresh and ready to move forward here at the shop largely by announcing the classes that I have put together and a few other changes:)
I have a clearance table outside with new fabric priced to move. Also, I have just gotten in several new bolts of new cotton and the 108" wide backs are fully stocked, I'm hoping everyone will be happy with me for freshening things up:)
Fresh stock of our preowned fabric has been making their way out onto the shelves regularly, so there's lots to choose from there too!
Some of you may know that Jessica has been working through the summer with the intention to buy the shop, but has decided not to. And with that she has also decided not to continue working at Humble. She will be greatly missed! Please join me in wishing her well in her next adventure.
With that, I will have to make some changes around here, once again, on my own here at Humble. For one, the hours will be changing. This is great for the earlier morning crowd but a bummer for my after work visitors. THOUGH, I'm going to be holding a fun weekly open late event. Check it out!
Our New Hours Will Be:
Tuesday – Saturday
9:30am- 2:30pm and by appointment
Thursday Evening Get Together
4:00pm- 7:00pm Make, Visit & SHOP
Wednesday - Saturday
Come on Thursday evenings to work on your projects, and do your after work shopping with your Humble friends. Humble will provide tea, bring a snack if you would like.
You can now check out the new class schedule on the website: humblefabrics.com and if there is any class ideas that you would like to learn as a group or on your own- zip out a response to this email and we can work on it! You can also see a couple of the classes coming up this September at the bottom of this email.
FYI, the youth scholarship fund is now up $240 and we are taking applications now. If you have a youth in your life that would benefit by receiving a beginning sewing or knitting class, please have them come by fill out a very small simple form or email me for more info- please feel free to tell your friends, school or church group about this opportunity we want to help these young ones gain skills that will get them sewing and crafting on their own.
A little reminder: it's time to start making holiday gifts! If you want to get it all done and not be jammed with stress at the last hour, get started now! Check out Pinterest.com or Stitch magazine etc. for ideas! You could even come on Thursday evenings and work on things you don't want your family to see:)
I also like to thank everyone that brought in bags! Thank you so much for making the effort and taking care of your little fabric shop! We now have enough bags for the rest of the year:)
I'm looking forward to seeing you all again!
