The Cotton Shoppe Website is Finally Live

Thank you for supporting my blog and following my crafting/sewing journey since 2011.  Happy to announce that The Cotton Shoppe website has finally gone live!  I know this has taken an incredibly long time due to work and family commitments, and taken a back seat since the onset of COVID19.  However, I’ve been working very hard on the website development […]
