Springtime in Tofino?!?

Tofino has been experiencing some unseasonably warm, sunny and dry weather this  February.  And it is very welcome after what feels like eons of rainy and grey skies!  Winston is back to spending most of his day rooting around outside and soaking up the Vitamin D and the plants on the property are starting to bloom.  Summer sun and Winter quiet. It’s a great time to be in Tofino!

2012...The Year of the Blog???

Okay people, so I may have bit off more than I could chew starting a business and thinking I could get all the moving parts up and running at the blog got a little neglected ;)!  But one of my many resolutions is to get on top of my social media in 2012.  So here we go!

Buttons Baby!
Ask and you shall receive!  We’ve had many requests to stock buttons in the shop and after finally deciding on a line and spending hours going through a 114 page catalogue the buttons for your next sewing project are here!  Stop by soon to see the full collection.  

Special on Classes
For January and February Sew Tuff will be having a special on classes.  Take $5 off each class, $10 if you bring a friend! Upcoming classes include; Hand Embroidery with Camilla Thorogood, Pattern making: Draped Knit Skirt, Valentine’s Day Boxers & Re-useable cloth Diapers For a full class schedule check our website

Teen Sew 

We will be running a Teen Sewing class through the District of Tofino February 10th, 17th and 24th from 4:00-6:00pm.  It is open to teens age 12-18.  Students will get to know the basics of using a sewing machine and complete a simple sewing project of their choosing .

Our Mascot Has Arrived!

Winston the Juliani pig has arrived from Wee Little Pigs Farm in Victoria, B.C and can be found daily "working" at the shop.  Fortunately for him his responsibilities are limited to being adorable, eating and sleeping, all of which he has mastered.  Our friend Sandy from Dandelion Lane Fibre Studio has made up a pattern for a Winston doppelganger that we are now carrying in the shop to celebrate Winston's arrival.

Sew Tuff Quilting Co.  is also happy to announce that we are now carrying and serving Stellar Coffee roasted locally by our friends Kat and Kirsten in Ucluelet, B.C.  As an avid coffee drinker I can confidently say that this is some of the best coffee I've ever tasted!  Click here to order online!
