Hi Everyone

Is it really spring out there? I'm still not sure but I look forward to seeing all the robins return and the tulips emerge from the ground to make it official. With spring in the air, it also means its time to get ready for the Poker Run, the Row by Row Event, and all the Quilt Shows of the season. This year, Ottawa is hosting Quilt Canada, which is very exciting to me for two reasons; one, I have never been to this show, and two, our store is going to be one of the vendors! We will also be attending the Napanee and Ottawa quilt shows this year, so be sure to mark the dates in your calendars (see below for more details).

As most of you know, we have had a challenging start to the year, which led to a significant loss of fabric. We would like to thank everyone again for their support and kindness over the last couple of months as we get the store back in order. Fortunately, we have lots of new fabric collections on order and we are filling the shelves with new and beautiful bolts of fabric! Fabric is being delivered weekly so be sure to drop by often to see what's new!

Recently, we have also begun an online shop through Shopify. We currently have quilt kits, quilt samples, and the Northcott Stonehenge Block Party block kit available to order. More to come over the next few months!
Summertime is meant to be spent outside! So for the summer months of July and August, we have decided to close on Mondays. Here are our new summer hours!

New Store Hours for Summer (July & August):

Monday - CLOSED
Tuesday - 9:30-5:00
Wednesday - 9:30-5:00
Thursday - 9:30-5:00
Friday - 9:30-5:00
Saturday - 9:30-4:00

As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions for fabric, notions, and classes you would like to see at the shop. If you can't find an item let us know and we can try to order it in for you!

Happy Quilting!
Paige

Thank-you for being a loyal customer.
We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Sincerely,
Paige, Linda, Sylvia, Maddie, Cheryl, and Paul
