Are You Ready?

Pssssssssssssst. . . psssssssssssssssssst . . . I just found out the best news EVER. We, at Sew Déjà Vu, are having a PARTY!  And it’s not one of those super secret VIP, invite only, Hollywood type of parties . . . It’s BETTER.

It’s our GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION in six days!  Six days?  Six days!  I know, we can barely contain ourselves either.  There will be food, there will be fun, and most importantly, there will be FABRIC!  It is important that you get this breaking news on our blog first! Because one thing I can tell you about our blog . . . it never lies.  So when I say this party is going to be AMAZING, I mean it’s going to be AMAZING.  Who doesn’t love a week long party?

Starting October 29th we will be kicking off the festivities with daily drawings.  If you sign up on our web page you will be entered in a drawing for one of three $50 gift cards! And you can start entering now, before the store even opens! There is a BIG drawing at the end of the week for an H class 100Q Viking sewing machine.  That happens Saturday, November 3rd.  Take it from the staff, the sewing machines are wonderful! Our new obsession with Viking machines almost hindered opening the store on time.  We wanted to sew but we want you to shop!  Oh the conundrum!

We are looking forward to meeting all of you soon!  The first week our doors are open everything is 10% off.  Tell your friends!

Moving On Up

So you may be thinking, “Where have you been all my life Sew Déjà Vu Blog? I have been DYING to read what’s going on!?”  Which you should be thinking, in case you weren’t, so shame on you. . . but we digress.  We have been busy busy busy.  We are in our space and making the place ready for all of you!  The walls are painted, the floor is carpeted and WE HAVE A BATHROOM.  We will take a moment of silence so everyone can rejoice.
. . .
But as I said, getting in the space was the easy part – transforming it has taken some work.
First, we had to transport all the fabric over to the store.  This took many long journeys with all of our precious cargo. Obviously you can see where our priorities are, keeping these bolts and yards safe.

We have been painting furniture (you didn’t know we were so crafty did you?. . . We don’t mess around at the Vu) and laying out the store. It's been tough getting our always stylish staff to dress down and get dirty, but everyone is being a good sport!  We even have a carpenter coming in this week to build shelves.  Even though we are “DIY-ers,” we don’t want to take any risks with our shelving.  We buckled out fabric into the car for goodness sakes, we don’t want it falling off the walls!

We are on track to open at the end of October – so we can’t wait to see you! Here is a sneak peak of what we are working with . . .   


As you can see, we have some work ahead of us.  But aren't the walls just FABulous?
