a lease has been signed...

it's finally time to squelch the rumors and make an announcement. we signed a lease today and picked up a new set of keys!!! jellen's house of fabric and sarah's sewcial lounge will be moving to the cedar green plaza located at the corner of cedar & south green road in university heights. we will be taking the space once occupied by just frames & art.

after looking at what seemed like hundreds of locations, we narrowed our search down by using these final criteria:

     a) freedom accessible
     b) in the heights/hillcrest neighborhood
     c) affordable
     d) close to where my parents and we live and
     e) a flushing toilet!

and we got a few bonuses too...a loft for sarah's sewcial lounge...
a few great eateries in the same plaza such as jack's deli, don tequila's, happy buddha, cedar green wine & cheese and the new ellie's waffles. plus there's pincus bakery, heinen's grocery is just across the street on green and a bruegger's bagels across cedar.

we are still just moments away from I-271 at the cedar road exit and easily accessible from university circle. legacy village and beachwood place are right down the street.

the icing on the husband's new office is just across the street. the whip cream...well it's on the flan at the mexican restaurant just two doors down.


so what's the time frame you ask? well the space does need some work to transform it into our happy little cottage. therefore we will remain OPEN at 5255 mayfield in lyndhurst at least thru august 16th while the construction is going on.

thank you all for your patience, your participation in helping to give us feedback, your shoulders while i cried, your ears while i moaned & groaned. although this is super exciting...there is a certain fear factor as we will now be paying rent for the first time ever. so please...Please, PLEASE follow us to our new location.

Robin Rosner There is a wonderful place down the road across from Notre Dame called the Sanctuary on Green...I bet they wouldn't mind setting out some cards or a small flyer to let guests know you are there. It is a seasonal tea room, and during the holiday season a Christmas and gift shop.

Congrats! That's so exciting, although I know what a pain it is to move a fabric store!! {We have moved 3 times, and our long arm twice!!}
