What a weekend – we certainly were not expecting all of that snow! Lots of fabric is finding new homes – but there are still over 3400 bolts remaining. New for this week – we are marking down all Christmas fabric 40% off original price – all bolts will be marked with a hot pink “C”. Also – many of you have come in to take advantage of the $4 fabrics – we are continually adding bolts to the table in the classroom– so keep checking back!
To recap the current sales:
And now, a few reminders – we will be open our regular hours through the end of December – the only exception will be Christmas Day, Wednesday December 25th – we will not be open. We will reopen on Thursday, December 26th. We have not made a final decision about January hours yet – but will be finalizing our plans for the new year soon – so make sure you keep your eye on Facebook and the website.
Finally – for those participating in any of our blocks of the month programs – our final meeting is set for this coming Saturday, December 14th, at 9am – come for the meeting – stay for the shopping.

Hope everyone had a lovely long holiday weekend! We saw lots of smiling faces this weekend – taking advantage of the sale! We are now at about 3700 bolts of fabric remaining. Too many for us to add to our personal stash – don’t you want to come in and give some fabric a good home?
The sales continue – we will be adding Thimbleberries fabrics to the $4/yard table in the classroom – so keep checking back. Some Halloween fabric remains – 40% off original price.
The storewide sale will be increasing to 30% off this week – on all books, patterns, fabric, notions, pre-cuts, etc. Finish the bolt will increase to 35% and finishing 10 bolts will remain 40% off.
Please remember – we are no longer accepting completed punchcards. We will however, continue to accept gift certificates – please make sure you get in before our final closing to use them. Keep watching the website and Facebook for updates.

Happy Thanksgiving! We have emptied some bolts (just a hair under 4000 left) and are starting to be able to see the floor! The sale continues!
Special for this week: We are pulling approximately 150 bolts – they will be in the back classroom area – which will be marked down to $4/yard (no further discounts taken) Look for the hot pink Star on top of those bolts.
Also – for the early risers, ready to start off Black Friday Shopping with some fabric – we will be opening our doors at 8 am on Friday November 29th. If you come in between the hours of 8am and 10am you will receive a coupon for 50% off all books, patterns, pre-cuts, fat quarters and pre-cut half yards. Again – this is a special coupon only given to anyone through the door between 8 am and 10am on Friday November 29th. The coupon is valid for one day only! So stop by – there is lots of great fabric remaining!
As a reminder, the ongoing sale is:

Wow! Thank you all for your support – while we know everyone is sad we are closing our doors, your well wishes are much appreciated.
As I mentioned to several people this weekend, I am sure we will continue to see many of you – quilters tend to run in the same circles.
We have had many people in – stocking up and thinking about future projects – but there is still over 4000 bolts of great fabric left looking for new homes.
Our sale will continue with 20% off storewide, 30% off if you finish the bolt – but as an extra incentive to help us clear off some shelf space – we will be offering an additional discount for emptying more than 10 bolts – bumping the finish the bolt discount to 40% off original price.
So come on in and look for the skinny bolts on the shelf – or make a list of all of those big quilts waiting in the wings that need backings. If you empty 10 bolts that fabric will be marked down 40%. Please also note that Halloween fabric and kits are still 40%.
Also, effective immediately we will be giving an additional 4% off your totoal purchase for using cash.
Finally, - I know we are all making our lists and thinking ahead to Black Friday – check back next week – we will be announcing a special one day sale – for those early risers among us!

Dear Friends and Fellow Quilters:
After 10 wonderful years, we have made the difficult decision to close our doors at the end of January, 2014. Linda now has 3 grandchildren putting claims on her time, and with Ted recently retired would like to have more freedom to travel. We loved every minute of having the shop – specifically all of the good friends, beautiful projects and sewing fun.
Linda will be continuing her machine quilting business and we will have new contact information available shortly – never fear, she will never completely step away from her customers!
The Shop will be open during our regularly scheduled hours through the end of 2013. Please note that we will be open between Christmas and New Years this year - and likely having some very attractive sales that week. Our lease extends through the end of January and we anticipate being open limited hours in January 2014 – but have not made a final decision about our exact schedule. We will be regularly updating the website – hopefully on a weekly basis, with updates on our sales and any new information as we approach our final closing. We will also be updating our Facebook page with information.
We are trying to reach all of our wonderful customers via email – please pass this along to your friends and fellow quilters – and please keep checking back on our website for more information.
Starting Saturday, November, 16th our entire inventory will be marked down 20% - this includes fabric, books, notions, patterns, thread, kits, etc. Also included at 20% off are block of the month kits going forward (sorry ladies, but if you are a bit behind on picking up, we cannot extend the discount to prior months’ kits.) We will also be encouraging you to finish off some bolts – if you empty a bolt the discount increases to 30% for that fabric. And finally, all Halloween fabric and kits will be 40% off - look for the hot pink “H” on those bolts and kits.
Now – about punch cards – we will no longer be giving punches for purchases; however, we will accept completed punch cards until December 1st. We will be honoring all gift certificates until our final closing, but we will no longer be selling gift certificates effective immediately.
Again, it is going to be very hard to see the shop closed, and know this was not a decision made lightly. We hope that you all have an opportunity to come in and see us before our final closing. Don’t forget to Quilt, Bind and Enjoy!
Linda, Ted & Amy
