I have been very remiss in my attempts to write an actual newsletter. I have been relying on short emails and Facebook messages to keep you all informed. I know that really isn’t enough, but I have not taken the time to write an appropriate newsletter in a long time. My apologies, I have no excuse. There has been so much going on here n the store that I had to break down and spend a few moments to write out an actual newsletter, so here goes:
We have tons and tons of new fabrics. We even had to buy an additional shelving unit to hold it all! So, if you haven’t stopped by the store in a while, it’s worth a few minutes of your time. New licensed lines include Harry Potter (!), Pokemon, Trolls, Jetsons, with Toy Story, Bambi and Lilo and Stitch arriving soon.
This spring, we have several events going on that you need to know about. One is, of course, FAT QUARTER TUESDAY. This year, FAT QUARTER TUESDAY IS ON FEBRUARY 28. We will be open from 9-7pm, and we will keep all the fat quarters at the old stand-by price of $1.75. We have many, many, new fabrics and they will all be available for your shopping pleasure on February 28.
Also, this spring, we will be again co-hosting the Spring Seminar Spectacular with Heartland Quilt Shop. We have an awesome lineup of teachers and classes and are very excited for a really fun event. This year, the Spring Seminar Spectacular will be held on April 26-29, at a new location, The Best Western Hotel in Lockport, on Transit Road. The location is new from last year, and will be considerably closer for those of you in the Southtowns. The Best Western Lockport Hotel will be offering our participants a special room rate, in case you would like to stay over and make a retreat out of it. The special rate is $79.99, using the code Spring Seminar 2017, and these room must be booked by March 26, 2017. After that date the room rate will go up to $119.99 per night. So why not plan to grab a couple girlfriends and take several classes? Make a event out of our event! Sounds like fun to me!!!
The Seminar classes will all be from 9:30am to 3:30pm. Lunch will be included. Please let us know if you have dietary restrictions at the time of sign up. We will have all quilts and projects for the classes on display at the two shops by January 28, and sign up will begin on that day. January 28 is also Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day, so if you come in to register, you will also be able to enjoy 25% off anything you buy on that day. That’s right, Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day is January 28, and we will have 25% off everything in the store from 10-3pm.
Don’t forget to check out our Etsy Shop. Most of our stock is available through Etsy. If you don’t have time to shop while our doors are open, you can still get our yummy goods in the mail, by shopping while in your jammies.
Now, that was the best newsletter I’ve written in 6 months!!!
Can’t wait to see you on the 28TH!
