Sewing Sewcial

April 1–May 31, 2019

Calico Gals is one of the 12 shops nationwide chosen to participate in Sewing Sewcial! This is the second year of the very popular online shop hop, featuring a beautiful selection of batik fabrics. Each block is a unique star block, and all the pieces are precut! The star blocks are named after classic movie stars. We chose “Lucille” for our block after New York native, the glamorous (and funny) Lucille Ball. Each shop created a finishing kit too. Collect the block kits for just $6.99 each, including shipping.

Come shop with us in our online store! We’ve got loads of fun official Row by Row Experience™ merchandise including pins, fabric, and kits from previous years.

Note about the map

Important! On the map you will see a street labeled Hazelhurst, just to the right of the red balloon. That is the wrong name! The name of the street is actually Marisa Heights. So, when you’re looking for the store, it’s at the corner of New Court Ave. and Marisa Heights (which is a teeny little street with a big sign).
