    Wow, can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? Are you ready for it? We will close early at 2 pm on Wednesday, 11/21, and be closed Thursday, 11/22, for Thanksgiving. You still have time to plan some projects to work on if you like to craft while you're home for the holiday and to show you how thankful we are for you, we're kicking off our "Black Friday" sale this Friday, 11/16, and run it through Sunday, 11/25. 

    Start your pre-Black Friday with our End-of-Bolt SALE this weekend! Get 25% off when you end any bolt in the shop today, 11/16, through Sunday, 11/18! It's a great way to get the fabric you need to finish a project, add some holiday-themed pillowcases and decor, or get the quilt back you need for finishing up some of those tops you have going.



    We'll add new deals and sale items between now and Sunday, 11/25. Watch for an email on Monday or check our Facebook or Instagram pages for next week's specials! 

    Mark your calendars for Small Business Saturday on 11/24, celebrating small businesses like ours and backed by American Express. It wouldn't be a celebration without customers like you! Grab a friend or family member and come on by the Saturday after Thanksgiving! We'll have some special giveaways for the first folks in that day and it's a great excuse to show your love for your local quilt shop (that's us!). There will be more details in the newsletter next week.


    We've planned some fun gift-giving themed classes over the next several weeks to help you get handmade gifts ready for the holidays and we have a Block Party Sew Day planned on 11/24 to help you use up some of your stash and contribute to some charity quilts for kids. Don't miss signing up for one of these options:

Sweater Knit-along
Sunday, 11/25/18 (more dates to come), 1-4 pm
Join our "Secret Sweater Stitching Society*" on the fourth Sunday of the month to hang out with other sweater knitters! (*It's not really a secret.)

Learn to Knit
You can learn how to get started knitting during our weekly sit and knit. Just reserve your spot for only $5 prior to that day (either in store, online or by phone) and we will make sure there is someone there dedicated to teaching you how for the first hour of the morning sit & knit. We've found it is a great way for folks to learn. They can then sit with the teacher for awhile knitting and get help learning how to fix little mistakes as they arise. We've had great feedback on teaching knitting this way versus a separate class. We are happy to set up a class for you though or private lessons that work better for your schedule. Email us to let us know your wishes. 

COUPONS  
     We have our IQ loyalty program, which is good for 20% off all regularly priced merchandise. Since launching our new computerized point-of-sale system, we are changing from paper cards to an electronic rewards system. No more forgetting your cards at home! We are happy to add your existing IQ cards to our system; just bring them in with your name and email address written on them.

     We do occasionally give out coupons during shop hop and other special events like quilt shows. Coupons cannot be used on special orders or sale items, cannot be combined and there are no rain checks.
