NEW! February Vintage Truck thru the Year & BIG NEWS!


NEWS FLASH!!!!!!!! {AND "LUCKY" Friday over on our Fabce book page!} This is so "BIG" I can't even wrap my head around it! LOL!  As you know, here at the Basin, we are growing by leaps and bounds and that is SOOO exciting!  I am thankful beyond measure!  You know I love my studio space {which at one point was a retail shop for the Basin}!  Well...  Today I got a call from the owner of the building and he said that one of the long time tenants has to down size and that his location would be available in 30 days!  OMG!  You know what I am thinking?!?!  YES!  I rented it!  I now have 1200 more square feet in the same building and will using that space for our pattern company and..... I will be turning the original {larger} space back into a retail space & open it up to the public & my AMAZING Events!!!  This is where you all come in!!!!  I need to know what you would love to have me do with the space!  There are SOOO many options, that I don't even know where to begin!  And yes, there is a big classroom so we have options!  Are we excited or what???

Ok- now back to our local programming, aka... "Lucky" Friday!  Today is also a fabulous day, as the NEW February Vintage Truck thru the Year is released on our website!  We all LOVE it here at the shop!  It is just darling... especially for all our wool lovers!!!  We do have kits available... Always remember, we are limited to what we can get- so if you want your kit to look just like ours, it is best to order your kits asap when you see them on the website!  So far, we have not had to swap out anything and I reallllllly make an effort to keep it as close to my model as I can... because I know you all LOVE my color palette... so I will keep doing the best I can for you all!!!


Oh the home front, I am have had a blast being a momma this week!  We have been super busy with nightly events with the girls and tomorrow we will be celebrating Gracie's 14th birthday!  I am sure you all have noticed that I am trying to balance my family life/work and sleep!!!  So that is why you aren't seeing as much 4 am posts!  Since the cruise, all but 1 day I have been to bed by 2-2:30am!  So I'm off to a good start!  Still haven't made a home cooked meal in awhile, so that will be next on the list!!! LOL!  Thankfully, my family is very supportive of my BB madness!!!!! 
This week also brought big changes again at the shop... Laura is not at the shop, but is off taking care of her grandbaby {so exciting!} ... and now, my retired wool enthusiast, Judith, will be volunteering from time to time to help us gals out... AND... my AWESOME sewer, Jodi will now be working at the shop on Mondays & Thursdays!  So I am confident things are heading in the right direction as we strive to fine tune things in order to meet your needs!  Just need to be patient and allow things to fall into place! 

 Since the cruise, I know many of have been inquiring if we are doing a cruise again next year!  Right now, I am on board... but Lisa is taking next year off from traveling/teaching!  {Good for her!}  So... I know we can swing it in 2018, just not sure about next year!  If you have any thoughts or suggestions - pop me an email at swest@buttermilkbasin.com!  PS* Miss all you cruisers!!!

Don't forget to head over to our Fabcebook page and leave a comment for a chance to WIN a free truck kit!  I am ready to read all your comments & catch up on what you have been up too!!!!  I can't wait to see what you've been working on, cooking, ventures you may be doing or if I am lucky, I may even get to see a pet pic or two!!!!  Hope you have a great weekend!  The weather is sunny & 37 degrees here in MN!  Almost time to put on my bikini!!!! HAHAHAHA! 
Happy stitching!  Stacy

Exciting news! I wish you all the best, and.please keep rolling that bedtime clock back. We want you to stay healthy and enjoy these years with your kiddos! The truck and sheeples and loggie are as wonderful as I knew they would be! Those little trucks are like potato chips!

Sleep is a good thing, as well as time with your family. Keep them and yourself at the top of the list. The truck is as adorable as everything you create. Going to have to have this one for sure.
