Happy Fall Everyone!
The end of another year is fast approaching. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t quite accomplished as much as I had hoped. There’s still quite a few of those partially finished quilting projects to get done before the end of the year. I guess we all need to get busy once the rains have returned and get back into our sewing rooms!
Our 30th anniversary is in September and we’re planning on celebrating with a big party on September 28th and 29th. Be sure to join us for our annual Inspiration, Perspiration & Determination Quilt Show (we usually have between 95 to 175 quilts). We will be giving away free hot dogs on Saturday, September 29th from 11 am to 2 pm. We will also have cake and other refreshments both days. Take 30% off any one regularly priced item in the store (one discount per day per customer). Join us for a cupcake walk (fabric cupcake of course, no calorie, the best kind) both days. I will be designing and kitting up a special block to give away with a $20 or more purchase during the celebration. We plan on having fun and hope you can join us.
Celebrate October along the Oregon coast with our Oktoberfest. Each shop will have a Halloween themed free pattern to give away and you can also enter to win a $50 gift certificate from each shop that you visit. The $50 gift certificate will be by random drawing from entries from October 1st through October 31st.
Once again this year, we will be holding our annual Merchandise Basket Giveaway. We will be giving away 3 baskets between November 1st and December 23rd. For every $20 in merchandise spent (includes discounted merchandise but not services like classes or consignment items), you will get an entry in for the drawing to win one of the merchandise baskets. The first basket drawing will be drawn from entries from November 1st through 17th. The second basket drawing will be drawn from entries from November 18th through December 1st. And the third basket drawing will be drawn from entries made December 2nd through December 23rd.
We’re going to bring back Game Day at the shop. Bring 15 2 1/2” strips of fabric and play Trading Dice with new friends and old on Saturday, November 24th from 2 pm - 4 pm. Each participant will also receive a free pattern for using the strips. This isn’t a winner takes all game, each person will end up taking home at least as many (but different) strips as you started with (if they want - they can donate their strips to others).
Inspiration, Perspiration and Determination Quilt show will be held in our upstairs retreat center September 28th and 29th (we do have a chair lift for those of us whom stairs aren’t as easy as they used to be). This show is composed of quilts finished between January and September of this year that have been sitting and waiting to be finished. We issued a challenge to all quilters to submit their unfinished projects and complete them in time for our show. In the past, we have between 95 to 175 quilts and other items turned in for this show.
Hugo Ladies Club will be hosting their annual show October 5th & 6th in Hugo, Oregon just north of the Grants Pass. This fun show is held in an old school house and the vendors have their booths outside like craft fair. This show also has vendors who make craft and art items for sale.
