Although we are steadily moving towards the closing of the shop on 10/10/2020, we have actually just gotten in some Quilters' Dream batting, Bogg bags and some Ruby Star and Jen Kingwell precuts that are all regular price, as it is not legal to bring in new merchandise just to discount it for a closing sale. We know many of you need some batting to finish your quilts and we had an order on backorder so we decided to bring it on in. The same with the Bogg Bags that we ordered back in March. The precuts are for future lines coming out later in the year and we got in just a few charm squares and fat quarter bundles of the new Ruby Star Rise and Golden Hour lines and the Jen Kingwell Winkipop line. Come on in to see the goodies!
Tuesday we started 30% off in-store only, on everything in the shop. We do not plan to ever go to 50% off in the shop as we have spoken with a few other shops in the southeast about taking over the rest of our stock, which they will have a full price again, so now is your chance to get any of it at a nice discount. We do have a 50% off area still in the shop. Discounts cannot be stacked on already discounted items. We also have pulled together a bucket of gift items that you can pick one of for every $100 spent in the shop.
We do still have quite a few fun baskets, buckets and other display items, plus a bucket of office supplies, curtain rods we used for hanging quilts, an Big Board top for your ironing board, some irons and many, many samples (quilts, bags, apparel) for sale.
*All sales are final. No price adjustments. Discounts cannot be combined. 1 Yard minimums on fabric.
If you have placed an order for curb-side pickup recently, we ask that you please come get it as soon as possible to help us clear our pick up area and insure that you get your purchases before we shut the doors. We will be in the store between 10 am and 4 pm Tuesday through Saturday this week and if you need us to stay a little later, call to see if we can one day.
We'd love for you to visit our FACEBOOK page too, and leave a fun memory about your IQ days and maybe even share some photos of your projects that have come out of the shop over these last 18 Years. We'd love to see the page continue to be a place where we can all share in our love of crafting.
We know you all are curious what each of us is doing next and it is tempting for you to ask us in the shop, but none of us know what is next. We are focusing on the task at hand, closing up the shop, and then we are all taking a break for awhile to rest, refocus and even spend some time together crafting, versus just working together all the time, as we do enjoy each other's company and are excited to spend some play time together. We ask that you try to refrain form asking us "what is next" as it just adds to the stress of this already stressful and sad task. All the folks at IQ, have talked it over and requested that I write this in a newsletter. We are all going to miss the shop and you all, but we see that it is time, and are ready to explore what comes next AFTER some rest and recuperation. Thanks for honoring our request!
If you try to reach out to us by email, just know that it is taking several days to get back to all the emails that are coming in and we do not check email on the weekends as frequently so don't be surprised if there is a communication delay.
Our in-store shopping for today through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm, BUT....you MUST READ and abide by our policies about coming to the store. A few of you have asked about later hours and we have tried staying later a few days but find that nobody comes much after 3pm. If you'd like to come later, reach out directly and ask if we might stay later. We may consider it. Please, also, don't make snarky comments about our in-store shopping policies, as we have to be inside all day, wearing masks for many hours, and we want ourselves and you all to remain healthy. Snarky comments do not help anyone in any way.
If you want to shop in the store please read the following:
1. There will be limited numbers of customers allowed in the shop so you may have to wait in your car. Bring a book or knitting or handwork to pass the time.
2. The door will still be locked! You will need to wear a mask before approaching the door and bring your own hand sanitizer into the shop to use once you are inside.
3. We will have a Red Sign, Green Sign signal in the window to let you know whether or not there is room for you. If the shop is full, we will have the red sign up in the window and you will HAVE to stay in your car. When you arrive, if the sign is red on the easel, there will be a sleeve of numbers hanging on it, so please grab one and put it under your windshield wiper so we can see who is next in line to come inside (we have rarely been at full capacity). Please then stay in your car and wait for us to motion for you to come inside. DO NOT get out and stand around on the porch. When we let a person or multiple people out, we will allow more inside. You can bring your number inside and hand it to us to disinfect and you will be entered into a drawing for a free gift.
4. Please try to keep your visit to 1 hour or less. We would hate to have to rush you along but studies show the longer you are exposed to an infectious person, the higher the risks of infection, so we really want everyone to keep their visit as short as possible.
We appreciate all your support and patience as we work to shrink our inventory during a very difficult time for shopping.
If you missed our Closing our Doors announcement, read below.
I want to let you know that Intown Quilters will be closing. We are running different specials every few days so keep watch on our Instagram and Facebook pages to see the most recent specials. We also have several fixtures that will be for sale and many baskets, tins and tubs that are for sale for as little as a dollar. We truly appreciate you and look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks!
If you have an open Gift Certificate, don't forget that you can use it online, too with the number written on the gift certificate!
Due to this news, all sales are final. No price adjustments. Some items may be excluded from any specials or promotions offered during this time.
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.
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!
