Bits and Pieces

November 14, 2023

I’m getting so anxious for Thanksgiving that I just wrote next week’s newsletter!!! Oh, boy, does my head calendar need adjustment! It’s a newsletter that you WON’T want to miss, by the way. It leads you right into all of our BIG SAVINGS from Black Friday through Cyber Monday, and it will be our last BIG SALE of the year. So don’t miss it, please…it keeps me awake at night and now I realize I have one more week to wait! But as an FYI…we will close Thanksgiving Eve at 1 pm, so we can delve into the food prep and all the fun.

For those of you doing Bags byAnnie with Lynn M., she will have a clean-up class for you this Thursday from 9:30-3, so bring all your unfinished projects (or start a new one) and let’s get them done for Christmas presents: either for ourselves or as gifts. She will also be teaching, as a new project the Clam Up Bag, and this is a series of bags starting small and graduating up in size. Make one on Thursday, or make them all…your choice. Don’t quite get finished? Come in Friday evening and finish up with Pajama Mamas. It’s a great group, and you’ll have a chance to shop until 7:30 or so when we’ll close the register, but you can continue to sew on any project you choose until the group has wilted and decides to go home (usually about 11-ish).  

Don’t forget to re-join us on Saturday with Ramona and Software: Get Savvy. She will be teaching a very fun and timely project: Greeting Cards!!! How cool to get a handmade, unique keepsake card from a family member. The card can even go up on your Christmas tree next year and every year thereafter. They are quick to do, and your software design can be anything you want it to be: simple or extravagant, elegant or wildly colorful. Bring lots of scraps and ribbons and tulle or mylar to place on your cards; let your imagination go crazy and let your card truly come from you and your heart. How fun! But sign up and get the supply list of things to bring to class so you don’t leave cardless. We do carry buttons, ribbons, mylar, colored vinyl, colored vinyl sparkle, glitter/glue (NOT messy), and so much more for inspirations! Leave your mark on your cards……

A reminder that Jan will be teaching Edge To Edge Hoop Quilting Camp, beginning Nov. 27-29. You asked for it, and here it is! Pay to reserve your seat, and get your supply list, and get ready! You will learn the technique, and then you can branch out in any direction with hoop quilting on your domestic machine!!! Jan has done a lot of edge to edge quilting, so be prepared to learn and practice with her guidance.

Our special fabric of the week will be Holiday fabrics again, at 15% off, and we have a HUGE SELECTION from which to choose. From gnomes, to traditional, to Hanukkah, to elegant, to plaids and deer, to anything you can imagine.  

Sign up and pay for the Martelli Event, to be held Dec. 2. Come for either the morning event (9:30) or the afternoon event (1:00), do some Christmas shopping for your absolutely favorite quilter (yourself???) with the special prices Martelli will be offering us, but please join us. Sign up now. Prepare for a fun event with Brian and Joallyn, whom many of you have already met through the Rusty Barn Shows, see why we feel their mats are the best, as are many of their cut tables and more. Spots are limited, so choose your time now. This will also take the place of our usual SEW SMART Event for December. If you’ve not joined us before, consider this your personal invitation to bring friends and join us for a fun and informative event, complete with goodies and gifts! How much better can it get?!?!

Feel free to join us now, to pre-shop the sale, to make your wish list, and don’t forget to ask us about the FABULOUS PRICING on the BERNINA Embroidery-Only machines! Nearly $5,000 off of the B 700 E, making is less than $3,000!!!, and nearly $3,000 off the smaller B 500 E, making it less than $2,000!!! My eyes nearly popped out of my head when I saw these savings. Get ready for our Black Friday-Cyber Monday Sales Days so you don’t miss out on the final BIG SALE OF THE YEAR!
