We will continue to have lots of evening classes, and Friday Night Sewcial from 5-8PM, but our retail hours will end at 6PM every day.
We are so excited that Summer is finally here! Our kids and teens sewing camps bring in so many budding young sewists and their enthusiasm for learning a new skill is contagious. We’re already one week in and the kids have had a great time making cute dresses, bags, and pouches.

Arizona by April Rhodes, one of Art Gallery’s Limited Edition lines, has arrived here at Modern Domestic. Art Gallery explains “Limited Edition is here to simplify the sewing process, because we know how challenging sewing can be for beginners. Each line is made of 8 prints in quilting weight, 2 in knit and 1 in voile substrates.” Everyone here LOVES this new collection and I’m happy to say we have all the Arizona prints, including the 2 knits and the voile print.
