Inside the quaint sewing store, hands young and old carefully stitch together custom projects with the guidance of veteran crafters, most notably owner Linda Carswell. Students have been coming to her shop for more than 30 years in search of expert advice, sewing supplies, and occasionally to pinch the cheeks of one of her nine grandchildren. Linda shares her teaching duties with a team of handy staffers who have years of experience in their trades, and help even the greenest of sewers hone their skills with kind guidance and patience.
