Happy Sewing in the New Year!

Suzan Steinberg, Owner
Happy New Year from your friends at Stonemountain!
We want to thank you, our fellow fabric-aholics, for being a continued source of inspiration for all of us. This has been an incredible year of growth and metamorphosis for our little store and we couldn't have done it without you, our BIG community. Everyday, we are reminded of not only why we do what we love, but also how we can do what we love better going forward. As this year draws to a close, we're reflecting on our accomplishments, both big and small.

What are you proud of this year? What are your sewing goals for 2015 and how can we help make those dreams a reality?

Creatively yours,

Looking back over the year, I have to say it has been incredible! Of course, there were many challenges, but overall the last twelve months were based on creativity, connection and joy! Owning a fabric store can be the best job ever. After 33 years in my family business, I feel blessed for the work that I do and more in tune with our mission to support the creative community around us. My own personal path has underlined the importance of kindness and the strength of feminine values in all aspects of my life, especially here at our store. I strive to make your experience at Stonemountain & Daughter an inspiration! Read more at
