Reopening Planned for July 4, 2015
Please read below for an explanation of what happened that we had to temporarily close our shop for a month. However, we plan to be open on July 4, 2015. We have a lot of work to do in a few short days, and will likely still be getting things arranged and on shelves, but we are very anxious to get our doors back open so we hope to see you soon! We will be participating in both the Row x Row Experience 2015 and the Wyoming Shop Hop as soon as we are open.
Lickety Stitch Quilts and many other businesses and homes in Lusk, Wyoming, suffered a devastating flood on June 4, 2015. We had to remove all the inventory and fixtures from our shop and are in the process of cleaning up and drying out the building. Much of the inventory was lost - we have not had a chance to inventory what is left to find out exactly what we have and what had to be destroyed. The fabric and inventory we were able to rescue is in storage so is not available for us to access for customers. We appreciate all the calls and notes of concern and sympathy for our loss. We have disabled our website so no one can order, since we are unable to fill orders at the present time. Please do not call asking if we have a certain fabric - since we don't know what we do and don't have right now. Sign up for our e-mail newsletter by putting your address in the area provided for this at the right hand top of our home page. Also checking our Facebook page often is a good idea. We will be notifying our customers by e-mail and facebook as we progress through recovery from this disaster and hopefully open again for business before long. The picture at the top of the page is of Jane and I after we had rolled out over 200 bolts of wet fabric in the city park to dry on the lawn one afternoon! Talk about a huge job! Fortunately we had quite a bit of help in rolling it out, as well as rolling it back up when dry.
