Our first movie night was fun so we're going to do it again!  Join us Wednesday, 
August 17th  at 7:00pm for a FREE screening of the award winning "Men of the Cloth".  
We can uncomfortably seat 10 and won't be the least bit insulted if you bring your own, 
more comfortable chair.  Snacks and drinks provided.  No RSVP necessary, first come, 
first seated.

"Men of the Cloth" 
a film by Vicki Vailopoulos

Italians Nino Corvato, Joe Centofanti and Checchino Fonticoli are
master tailors who have spent a lifetime perfecting the skills required
to construct flawless custom-made suits for their clients in New York,
Philadelphia and Italy, a fascinating process broken down step-by-step
in "Men of the Cloth".  Now in the twilight of their career, they fear that
their Old World knowledge will vanish with them.  Enter Joe Genuardi,
a tailoring apprentice who reflects the resurgence of popular interest
in artisanal craftsmanship as an alternative to corporate mass
production, providing hope for the future of their craft.

In preparation for the Rapid Transit construction project scheduled to begin
this summer, remember that we have free parking easily accessible from Silver, 
one block south of Central.

These are just a few of our recent arrivals....

*  Cotton knits.

*  An interesting linen mesh.  Loosely woven in a rustic, natural color, it
   lends itself to a world of embellishment opportunities - embroidery, beading
   and more.

*  Our latest quilting cottons include a new Day-of-the-Dead, Japanese cats and
   some incredible Art Gallery florals and new Southwestern symbols.

*  Suitings - a sky blue plaid Chanel and a salmon pink silk.
