Covid 19 and Store operations


Fran’s Sewing Circle Store hours beginning June 1

By appointment only.

Monday + Tuesday 10 am – 3 pm

Thursday – Saturday 10 am – 3 pm

Closed Wednesday and Sunday

Make appointment by phone (910) 397-9399 or email and we will confirm.



We are three weeks into reopening by appointment only and it seems to be working fairly well. We apologize for not being able to fit everyone in that wanted to shop and having to turn some away who stopped at the store not knowing they needed an appointment.  


We will continue to operate by appointment only.  We have realized we can make appointments at half hour intervals which means we can accommodate more customers in a day. Although at first, we were full several days ahead, it is evening out some and may even be able to do some same day appointments.  But please, if you are planning a shopping day, schedule in advance with us to be sure we can fit you in. 


The store is still working with a small staff so can only be open 5 days a week.  To accommodate those that work all week, we are closing Wednesdays but will be open Saturdays.  We understand that some of you are still sheltering in place and we continue to offer email and phone orders with curbside delivery or shipping 


Classes:  We thank all of you for showing your trust in our efforts by signing up for classes.  Beginning this week, we are opening our classroom for classes.  Classes are being kept to a maximum of 6 students. We will not be restarting any of our large group classes this month, but will be making decisions on those within the next few months.  We ask that especially at this time, you do bring all you own supplies for classes.


Continuing Guidelines


  • Customers will be asked to use hand sanitizer as they enter the store.  
  • We will not handle cash, so all transactions will be credit card or check.
  • There will be only two staff and one customer in the store at any time.
  •  All customers, as well as staff, will be asked to wear a mask while in the store
  •  Appointments will be taken at 30 minute intervals.  Appointments can be made by phone or email.
  • Fran’s Sewing Circle staff will respect the 6' social distance directive with each customer and ask that you do the same for staff
  • Blue tape will mark off 6' distance from register and cutting counter to help customers with distancing


Please, if you travel out of state and have not been isolated for 14 days before venturing out, please don't come in. If you have a cold or don't feel well, please don't come in. Let's all practice safe re-entry measures.


The safety of all of us is so important to me. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to adjust and change.
