The Quiltzette

July 13, 2015


Note from Karen

Hi all. The Quiltzette is somewhat abbreviated this week. Three of us just spent four wonderful days in Arizona attending BERNINA University. We are now home and full of exciting information and new ideas for our current and future BERNINA owners. Watch future issues of the newsletter in the coming weeks for details.


Thank You Mystery Gardener!

Look what magically appeared in the flower boxes in front of our store last week! Six beautiful new plants - three flowering and three ivies. Whomever our secret admirer is sure knows what they're doing . . . everything is perfectly planted and it all makes wonderful addition to our storefront. To the mystery gardener who gave us this nice gift, we thank you and appreciate the random act of kindness.


Christmas in July

Join us on July 18 - THIS Saturday  - for our annual Christmas in July celebration. We've been busy making samples and our 2015 holiday fabric collections will be out and available to purchase for the first time.

This year we have a special event planned . . . the Chickadee Challenge. Use the panel shown here along with any of the coordinating fabric that we have to go with it to make a wall hanging or quilt. Your entry into the challenge is only the cost of the panel ($7.99) and we only have 22 available so come early if you want in on the fun. We'll display and hold voting on all entries during our annual Customer Appreciation Day (the day after Thanksgiving). The maker of the creation that garners the most votes will win a $50 gift certificate to the shop. Added bonus . . . if you'd like to purchase the ever-popular Panel Play book to help you create your Chickadee masterpiece it will be available for 20% off. This offer is good only with purchase of the panel.
