Oh my how time has flown by this year. We can't believe we are in the final two months of 2018! There's still plenty of activity at the shop through the remainder of this year. Check out our classes by clicking on the green box to the right and you'll see all we have to offer.
With that, we are having our HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE on NOV. 10th! That's coming up fast. We will be making it a special day with treats, sales and this year we are giving away five, yes five beautiful gift baskets! Make sure to stop in, check out the sales, and sign up for your chance to win one of the baskets!
Don't forget about our BS Club days for the rest of the year. It's a chance to get those Christmas projects completed and have fun with other sewing enthusiasts at the same time! Also don't forget about our Friday open sew days! You can sew at the shop and not have the distractions at home!
Please let your friends and relatives know that we will be closed Sunday, Dec. 23rd, Christmas Eve and Christmas day. We don't want them to be disappointed if they are shopping for a gift card at the last minute. We've decided our staff deserves a great three days off with family.
We will be open the Sunday before New Years as well as New Year's Eve but will be closing early that day.
We will also be having an inventory clearance in December. We'd rather sell it than count it so watch for the details of the sale and the days they will be held!
That's it for now everyone. Visit soon!
There's so much going on at the shop, it will take me awhile to share with you!
First off, yes, we are a shop being featured in Quilt Sampler Magazine in the fall! The magazine hits the stands on Sept. 6th but you can pre-order the magazine from us for $6.95 plus tax. We are taking orders now for both the magazine and our featured quilt. Our quilt is called Santa's Magic and you can view pictures under the Quilt Sampler tab on this site. It's an adorable 39 x 39 inch wall hanging. A bit of applique and a bit of piecing. It's a great holiday quilt to display! Get your order in now as once the magazine hits the stand, we're sure our kits will be gone. The kit can be preordered. Cost is $79.95. If we ship it's an additional $10. We've had a great experience working with Meredith Corp. for our entry into the magazine. We think you'll enjoy seeing our shop in a national publication! Woohoo for Appleton and the Fox Cities! Thank you to everyone that let Meredith Corp know about us. We so appreciate your confidence in our shop!
Next up is Row by Row! It's off to a great start already. You may now purchase our kit which is $19.95. Please remember that you must visit our shop to get your row. We are not allowed to mail them out as of this time so please don't ask us to do that. It's against the rules and we don't want to be dropped from the Row by Row Experience for non compliance! If you want to see all the Wisconsin rows simply go to Rowbyrowexperience.com and click on WI and all the rows will pop up along with the license plates.
Our row is called Swing and Dance Like Nobody's Watching. Sandy did a great design job as always. Our license plate says Swingin Quilter following our tire swing theme. We have plenty of kits cut and enough fabric to do more so won't run out this summer.
Next we want to let you know that our holiday fabric is arriving! We have 4 lines by Moda, one from Henry Glass and more! And as always, we buy the entire line along with patterns to make sure you can make whatever you want! No messing around with just a few bolts of a line. We need the entire line! Again Doug Leko did a great book for Holly Taylor's Town Square line and we have kits of almost all the designs. Samples are displayed in our sample gallery and also just on our gallery shots on this website. Check it out!
Halloween fabrics will be arriving shortly! We've order two adorable lines for this year. We still have some great Halloween from last year's lines so check out the fall section in the shop!
We've searched out new patterns and have set up a section up front in the shop for the newest selections. Sharon Rambo does a great job arranging our patterns for us! With over 2000 patterns to choose from, you'll never run out of projects!
Kim Diehl's What Nots Club 5 will be starting up soon. We're going to be cutting kits to be available in August. You must sign up for this club so make sure you do so if you want it. It's become a very popular club so don't wait to sign up!
We continue searching out new blocks of the month for you all. In our newsletter you'll see what we have currently, along with a new BOM starting in Sept. If you want the newest Marcus BOM, don't wait! It's going to fly out of the shop when it arrives! It is gorgeous and that's all I'm going to say about it here!
Check out our special events tab for happenings in Sept.! You will not want to miss out on our Sept. 16th event! It's going to rock the quilting world in the Appleton area!
Now it's time to head to my sewing machine to finish a sample for the shop. Once again we want to say a huge thank you to all our loyal customers and friends. We wouldn't be where we were if it weren't for all of your support. And our wonderful staff can't be thanked enough for all they do to help me and Joanne as we continue to grow the shop.
