As you may have read last week, Intown Quilters celebrated 18 years of business in August.
I want to let you know that as of noon today, our home at 1058 Mistletoe Road changed hands to a nice veterinarian, and we need to vacate in 60 days. Over the next 6 weeks, we will work to find a new home (as of this moment we have NO idea where) and need to shrink our inventory to make it easier to move into a new, smaller space. If we cannot find a new home we can afford, we will move the shop online and no longer have a Brick and Mortar location. We know this news may come as a shock, but just know that we will be very busy looking for a new home, working with any you who want to come in or call, packing up orders, and beginning the process of preparing to vacate this home, so while we welcome your questions and communication, please don't be surprised if there is a delay in response. We all at IQ are going to have a lot on our plates and have to prioritize to make this process go as smoothly as possible. If you don't hear back quickly, trust that we will get back to you as soon as we come up for air! We will keep you all informed along the way through our newsletters and social media, so make sure you are signed up and following along! We truly appreciate all of you and look forward to seeing you in the coming few weeks, but please do remember to make your appointment!
We are beginning a Storewide Sale* right away.
All regular price merchandise is 10% off through 9/12/2020 with the coupon code 202010. If you have an unused rewards coupon, you are welcome to combine it at this point with the 10% off sale for a total of 28% off during this period of time. Please note this is a limited time offer! Just reply to this email and ask for any rewards that you have to be turned into an online coupon. Mary is standing by to make that happen for you!
If you have an open Gift Certificate, don't forget that you can use them online, too!
*All sales final. No price adjustments. The new line of Kaffe Fassett collective and any new shipments are excluded from the sale.
We are going to open up to more customers in the store starting this week (by reservation only) and have added some new no-fee, shopping reservations to the CALENDAR page of our website, to help us control the numbers inside the shop. We will be allowing more people to sign up for the same time period, so know that there will be other in the store with you. If you would like to try to set up a private visit, for a fee, please email us to set it up. We have changed the time limit to 1 hour for your visit but we do strongly suggest trying to make your visit as short as possible, since studies show the longer you are exposed to a positive person, the more at risk you are. You are required to wear a mask without vents and bring in hand sanitizer with you to use once you are inside the door. Of course visiting the website ahead of time to get some ideas of what you might want to look at will help you stick to the allotted time. Check the website regularly for added reservation spots.
We continue to offer online shopping with curbside pick up for those of you who are more comfortable shopping from home. We have been told some of the glitches on our site are fixed, so please try again if you've had trouble.
With all the hustle and bustle of welcoming the new Kaffe Fassett Collective prints last week, we didn't have a chance to even touch the boxes of new batiks that arrived from Timeless Treasures. That's OK because 30 bolts of beautiful batiks are worth enjoying any day! The new arrivals include everything from vivid brights to neutrals to rich multicolor prints, all made with that distinctive Timeless touch.
If you don't really feel there is anything you need to purchase but would like to help us anyway, please consider contributing to our GoFundMe fundraiser. Our fundraiser is helping to supplement the pay for the shop employees during this time of limited work hours and helping us afford to donate some fabric (that is not selling anyway) to people who are still making masks for healthcare and essential workers. For information on making face masks, check out our Charity Projects page.
We appreciate the support you've shown us during these uncertain times. Whether you are an essential worker during this crisis or doing your part to #stayhome, you are in our thoughts!
