Welcome to our booth

Stacey got up bright and early (after a late night putting the final touches on some Shoovelopes) and headed to the Vancouver Convention Centre this morning to get our booth set up for the first day of the Vancouver One of a Kind show. Take a look at her home away from home for the next few days…the UrbanStitch Inc. booth!

UrbanStitch Inc. Has Entered the Building!

Last night, Stacey spent the evening unloading all of our display materials into the Vancouver Convention Centre for this weekend’s One of a Kind Show. She got the display all set up and tested it out with a few ShoovelopesTM. We’ll let the display be a surprise but will say that we’re in good shape for the sale! Come on down this Thursday through Sunday to check out the ShoovelopeTM in person and make someone on your Christmas list very happy!

Show hours are as follows:
Thursday to Saturday 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Stacey (hearts) the Serger

Today I tried sewing with a serger. I have just 4 words for this experience...

I. Am. In. Love!!

The serging machine is Ah-Ma-Zing! 90 Shoovelopes stiched, zigg-zagged and trimmed all in one simple step. We calculated that I'd just increased my production at this one Shoovelope junction by 150%. Not bad eh?

Check out the picture of my workstation below and make sure to play a soundtrack of glorious music coming from the heavens above as you see the results of my new favourite machine...! (Mind the sewing guts on the floor - they really had to remain in the picture to get a real sense of things!)
