Bits and Pieces
May 4, 2021

Hey, it's May!  What can I say----we didn't have April showers so we might not have May flowers!  But we have lots of flowers here at the shop for you.  You might even look at us as your May Flower Shop!  And there are even more reasons for you to visit us this month.  We have some stupendous sales going on.  BERNINA and Q'nique are both listening to your needs/wants, and both are responding positively!  As you can see from the header, if you purchase a new B 880 PLUS or B 790 Plus, you can choose from one of three fabulous and pricey gifts!!!  Choice number one....a free B 480 machine, your bring to class machine, if you desire.  Choice number two...a free L460 serger.  Choice number three...the free V8.2 Embroidery software.  Put your tulips together and whistle because the values here are from $1899 up to $3149!!!  For the month of May.  But wait...if you're interested in financing the 880 or 790 purchase, do so on May 14-18, and you can get 0% interest for 60 months on your BERNINA Credit Card!!!  Come in and get qualified, or qualify at home if you don't need our help with the paperwork.  You can get a bigger machine harp opening with more bells and whistles and walk away with a HUGE BONUS.  Come see us and discover why you want to purchase with us, besides our lowest in the valley sales tax of just 6.3%.....we have much to offer you, and the best mastery classes in our area! 


Q'nique has also raised the stakes for May!  We might not be able to grow May flowers, but we can grow May DEALS!  We are keeping the tabletop Cutie frame at just $689 (normally $999.95).  This frame will hold your domestic machine, or the 15" or 19" longarm throat, and is capable of quilting a King sized quilt, yet can be easily put away when you need the space.  Also on special is the top of the line Q'nique 21 PRO longarm, on special for $7,299 (normally $8,999.95!).  This will include a FREE accessory pack, which includes the Q'nique Laser, Rear Handles, and Light Bar, a value of over $1,100!!  Or save a bit more money with the Q'nique 21, specially priced at just $6,399 (normally $7,999.95).  And STILL get the FREE Accessory Pack listed above.  Great deals and great prices for GREAT MACHINES!!!  Looking at software for your longarm?  Save here, too, at 25% off Quilter's Creative Touch (QCT), and the savings are big for both the Beginnings version (save just under $900!!!) or the QCT5 PRO version (save just under $1,750!!!).  Save 25% on QCT all tiers and upgrades.  We have financing available for you here, too, if you're interested. 


We've been through a lot with covid, and the rainbow is forming, to brighten our moods, our creativity, our interests.  Mother's Day is coming May 9, so think about these offers for your very special reward for all you have done to help others.  And hey, new stuff can allow you to do even more stuff for others, as well as yourself!  Center that rainbow right over your own head...why not?!?!  Flowers make us smile, but so do new machines and abilities and expressions of joy and happiness, and these don't need to be watered and tossed out after a week or so!
 
Remember that our Mastery classes are great learning tools for you, a necessity really, and Serger Mastery is Wed., May 5.  Please let us know that you're coming to the class.
 
We have a new project based class for you on Thursday with Andi.  It's called Half-Square Triangles-Fresh Start Placemats.  You will learn several methods of creating half-Square Triangles (HST) and you can finish them as placemats or use them in a sampler quilt.  The pattern will be provided in class and is included in the $35 class fee.  Class time is 9:30-1:30, and you can set up at 9.  There is a small supply list you'll get when you sign up.  In the classroom, Andi has a coordinating set of four placemats using all kinds of HSQ designs---check these out and join us for class! 


Mary M. starts a three-parter class of Bright Lights Big City (full quilt on display in the classroom).  Class time will be 9-2, $60 for all three classes.  Lots of techniques to learn, lots of creativity to try!  


Saturday is our FREE SEW SMART EVENT!!!!  Ever wonder about batiks?  The hows, the whys, what to look for in good and well- made batiks?  This is your event!  Please sign up to let us know you're coming, and bring your questions with you.  I just love batiks, as do many of you, and that's why we have an entire long wall, top to bottom, of them.  And they just keep getting better and prettier, don't they?  We still recommend them for masks due to their tight weave and beautiful colors and designs.  We will also have the BERNINA Foot of the Month, the # 55 Leather Roller Foot, at an additional 5% off on SEW SMART DAY as a Thank You for attending.  It's a great foot for sewing leathers and for sewing contours and tight curves, and even creating jumbo trim piping.  For the month of May, this foot will normally be 25% off.  Check in your BIG BOOK OF FEET for more advice and uses.
 
Following SEW SMART, join Jeri for a class in Software Techniques.  Class will start at 12:30-3:30 for $10.
 
Monday is our Open Sew class, $10, 9:30-3.  I know we're shortening the class hours a bit, but I'm trying to stay more in balance with the shop hours of 9-3, and with summer heat hitting, I hope you'll understand.
 
Tuesday is Embroidery Open Sew, and Jan will be on hand to answer questions or problem solve or just share knowledge!  Just come in and join in with your choice of project, and enjoy the day with us! 


We have more Kimberbell projects available for you, and two Camps are scheduled in June.  The fabric for Red, White and Bloom is in and getting kitted, and the kits and space will be limited, so sign up for the June 8-11 camp ASAP.  Jan and Jeri are just finishing up the wall hanging sample now, but it's adorable and even includes lightening bugs in jars that light up!!!  The sample for the Main Street Bench Pillow is in the classroom, complete with red, white and blue lights!  Ask us to light it up for you!  The bench pillow and the wall hanging coordinate so well that your patriotic/summer decorations will be complete.  But there are many more things you can add like decorated aprons, towels, totes......  Come see what we have to make you smile!
 
I think I've talked enough, but there was a lot to share!  Hope I got your juices flowing and your thoughts churning.  Our CODE of the Week will be 20FLORAL, and you'll get 20% off Floral fabrics when you give us the code!  In-shop or online (www.sunvalleyquilts.com).  Hope to see you soon for these amazing discounts and gifts!!!
Barbara and all of us who whistle while we work with our tulips together
