In honor of National Zipper Day and the start of Creative Beginnings Month (May), we are having a Grab and Go Sale through Sunday, 5/1. All zippers, patterns, books and pre-cut fabrics (including panels and fat quarters) are 30 percent off. Unofficially, we're also giving customers 30 percent off on cut yardage. As with all sales, no doubling of discounts, and sale prices are limited to in-stock items. If you are working this weekend, please make sure you welcome customers as they enter the store and communicate about the sale. We had several customers on Friday who came in because of the sale and some who did not receive our email but bought more than they intended after learning of the sale.
Mary is teaching a knit tee class on Thursday. We were only able to get enough patterns for the numbers of students in the class, so the patterns are behind the register. When the class supply list was sent out, this information was included so students know they should ask an employee for the pattern.
Sarah has begun working on the shop schedule through the summer because of events, summer camps and previously submitted time-off requests. If you have been thinking about taking time off between now and Aug. 1, please be aware that no further time off requests can be accommodated for these dates: June 1-19 and July 1-10.
Our Shop Hop "Sew Cheesy" coupons are good ONLINE only in the month of April. They are redeemable in store in May.
