Good Day Quilters,
Things have been busy with working on the retreat house!!! It is so exciting!! If you want to come and see it- we will be having a “ribbon cutting” on Friday April 28th, 4:00 p.m. Plus, we will be having an open house all day on Saturday, April 29th. (This is also the day of our “green bag” event, see below.)
We are taking reservations, and have several weekends already booked. I won’t bore you with all the fine details. If you want to make a reservation, email us and we will give you the details. The rates are comparable with other retreats, depending on the number of quilters and nights. Early/late check out, discounts at the store…etc.
Green Bag Event- April 29th- the fifth Saturday of the month!!! As I stated earlier whenever there is a fifth Saturday in a month- you bring your bag in, fill it up and receive 20% off any regular price items!! I gave them away free in January, now you can purchase one for $4.99. This is also the day we will have an open house for the retreat house!
Special Guest Teacher—I was fortunate enough to have a designer stop by the shop a couple of weeks ago. Her name is Erica Plank of “Unseen Hands”. She designs patterns and has some amazing techniques. Check out her website or facebook page, www.unseenhands.net. She was coming back through Ohio in April so I talked her into stopping by and teaching a couple of classes. Save the following dates!

1:00-4:00 Coloring class with Erica- Kit-$45.00
April 5th- 10:00 -3:00 Cathedral Window Class fee-$35.00

Only a one more day for the March Coupon—25% off wide backings. We have over 100 wide backings and new ones come in all the time. I think this is everyone’s favorite coupon. Don’t miss it. It’s a good idea to bring your top in to see what backing looks the best. Starting Saturday-April 1st- all precuts are 25% off- that includes, panels, fat quarters, charms, layer cakes, jelly rolls and more!
We are expanding with some new items. We now have the top colors of Cosmo floss, and we have some wool precuts. We are trying to get some samples made using these items and some great patterns. Come in, check it out and tell us what you would like to see.
