Hang in there...
This is the time of the year when, here in Vermont, the sky and the ground are the same color - dingy white. Everything is blah, and it's hard to motivate. Most of us move through the days doing the minimum, feeling uninspired much of the time. We have a fix for that - dive into your patterns and your stash. There's lots of color in there, just waiting for you to play. Pull out new fabrics, and old ones too - we bet there's fabric on your shelves you forgot you had! Make a new project for yourself, for a loved one, or even for donation if you've run out of quilt storage space.
If you decide to make a quilt to donate, take it to your favorite donation organization, if they're accepting quilts again. If they're not, consider donating to Yankee Pride's Helping Hands program. All of our quilts go to Laurie's House, a women's and children's shelter in St. Albans. We collect quilt donations of all sizes, from baby to bed, and we take both finished tops and finished quilts. Cindy works with a number of volunteers who move the unfinished donations toward completion. If you have questions about our Helping Hands program, please contact Cindy at the shop, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The usual reminder if you are coming to see us:
-Masks are mandatory, for both customers and staff.
-Please sanitize at the door when you come in. Your hands must be completely dry before you can touch the fabric.
-Store capacity is 4 customers at once.
-We will remain closed on Sundays until further notice.
**A note for our customers who order online and choose Store Pickup - orders are processed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. If you order on an alternate day, or after closing, your order may not be filled until the next processing day. We thank you for your understanding. We're doing our very best to make your Yankee Pride experience a good one, whether you're walking among the bolts or shopping from your couch.
