Sew-Jo's Winter Challenge - using Kraft-Tex

Sew-Jo’s has a new product line!  Many have asked for it and it has finally arrived!  It’s called  Kraft-tex Paper Fabric!  

What is Kraft-Tex?

Kraft-Tex is a rugged paper that looks, feels and wears like leather, but cuts, sews and washes like fabric. It is supple and lightweight, yet strong enough to use for projects that get tough wear. It is an eco-friendly, colour-fast, tear-resistant alternative to leather and vinyl, and comes in basic hues, as well as new hand-dyed colours.  It can be sewn, embroidered, printed on using your printer or hand painted.

SEW who better to ask to test out this product and do amazing and wonderful things and who is always up for a challenge???? Our SEW-JO’S CREATIVE FRIENDS!

The Challenge is.... create "anything you want" using Kraft-Tex!

Your entry must use Kraft-Tex - after that we leave it up to you!

Challenge begins in December and will take us until early February. 

We would love to see your final product.   However, Christmas is only a few weeks away and with the winter weather and covid restrictions that may not be practical.  This time we ask that you submit a good quality picture of your final product.  Our plan is to post pictures of all the projects in February so that everyone can all see what you came up with - Sharing is Caring!

IN STORE SHOPPING RESTRICTIONS when permitted by the government

The health & safety of our customers and associates is a priority, therefore, there will be a number of safety measures put in-place.  Please note that these are subject to change without notice if we feel we need to adjust them for your well being.
OCCUPANCY LIMITS
One customer in the store at a time. Due to the size of the store it is not possible to provide navigational flows with markers to allow proper physical distancing at all times, therefore, we need to limit the number of people in the store.
LIMITING YOUR SHOPPING TIME
Customers will be asked to limit their shopping time (15-20 min). We will try and manage this through some type of a sign-up/time-stamped sheet at the door so you can wait in your car and not on the sidewalk, but we will need your cooperation and help. This will only apply if there are customers waiting.


RESPECT PHYSICAL DISTANCING
Customers and store staff are asked to maintain a 6’ distance at all times.
WEARING OF FACE MASKS
Customers are required to wear a face mask in order to protect those working in the store. We in turn will also be wearing a face covering in order to protect you!

COMMUNICATION
We are continuing to receive your orders/questions/comments by email. As you know, e-mail is 24/7 and we are operating under reduced hours, therefore, we continue to ask for your cooperation and patience.
In order to help us help you, we ask that you ensure your email has the following information:  Your full name and a phone number as well as where you can be reached.  The clearer the request, the quicker we can action it without a lot of back and forth.



ONLINE SHOPPING
Many have asked why Sew-Jo’s does not have on-line ordering, we don’t and there are NO plans to do so. 
Sew-Jo’s values the time you spend with us and the personal interactions.  There are lots of different places to do on-line shopping these days, but there’s NO place like Sew-Jo’s ... Whether your new to sewing or an experienced quilter the motto stands:  Sew-Jo’s is all about:  Encouraging your creativity through the art of sewing.

A FEW OTHER THINGS:
•  ALL onsite classes are suspended until further notice.
•  ALL Sit-and-Sew sessions are suspended until further notice.

Stay safe
