Dear Friends, ** Update May 31, 2020 **
After this long shut-down, customers are now able to shop in the store, at the usual hours, Tuesdays to Saturdays!
Please note, however, that in order to maintain safe distancing, it may be necessary to limit the number of people in the store.
SEW for IT! is open for for sales of fabrics, sewing machines and sergers, notions and thread, inside the store. We have been working hard to adjust the layout of the store and to clean and sanitize all surfaces. Staff will be wearing masks and face shields. In order to keep staff and customers as safe as possible, we are implementing the following necessary precautions:
* Everyone entering the store must wear a face mask that adequately covers both the nose and mouth.
* Everyone must sanitize their hands at the door using the provided hand sanitizer as they enter the store. (careful, it squirts :)
* We may have to limit the number of customers in the store at any one time.
* Customers must practice physical distancing and remain at least 2 meters apart.
As there is no way for us to sanitize fabric, we strongly suggest that all fabric be washed in hot, soapy water and dried in a hot dryer and/or steam-pressed as soon as you return home.
Many spring fabrics have arrived in the past few weeks and we have been able to keep our prices on 115 cm wide printed quilter's cotton at $15.95 to $19.95 per meter.
We hope that you will drop by to see what is new!
Also, please check the following for free on-line classes and project ideas to help fill your time while we wait.

We are conveniently located (in Bells Corners, Ottawa's west end), at the south west corner of Moodie Drive and Robertson Road. Free parking is available in the lot at the front of the store, additional parking at rear.
Classes in sewing, serging, quilting, embroidery, and embroidery software are held in our bright, spacious classroom.
OC Transpo, the regular 88 bus stops about 100 metres away on Robertson Road at Moodie Drive. During the evening "rush" it stops on Moodie Drive, right in front of our store, or across the road, depending on direction. (We are right beside Circle K, in the strip mall at the opposite end from CIBC).
From the south, take Highway 416 north, exit at Hunt Club West - follow Hunt Club heading west to extreme west end, turn right (north). This is Old Richmond Road but changes into Moodie Drive at the 4 lane section.
SEW for IT! is the first store on the left in Bells Corners, turn left into the parking lot. (At McDonalds parking sign).
Parking is free, and there is additional parking at the rear of the building.
