We're sending you this email to catch you up on some of the new
stuff in the shop, and an event that we have coming up ...
WINTER STOCK-UP SALE
Saturday, December 7th
9:30 am to 5:00 pm
20% Off Storewide
We started this new event at Material Rewards
last year when we decided to close on Black Friday. This way you
didn't have to put us on the list of places that you wanted to
visit on this National Shopping Day. So put on you calendar Saturday,
December 7th to STOCK UP FOR WINTER on all your quilting supplies.
This is a great time to pick up a gift for yourself for Christmas!!!
We're also planning a demonstration in
the back room on a new ruler from Jay Bird Quilts. Wait
til you see how versatile this ruler is and all the different
quilts that you can make from it.
See you then!
We've recently come across a couple of items that are
limited in quantities, so if they are something that you're interested
in, please let us know asap ...
Our quilt rack "guy" recently retired (don't worry
- we've found another "guy"), but when he went through
his workshop lately, he found two (2) beautiful floor racks that
he forgot were there. They are solid oak with a tilted, 3 tiered
rack. If it's anything you can use, they are $65 each.
Moda comes out each year with a fabric line/project that some
of the proceeds go to a charity. The project this time is a fabulous
clamshell kit. The fabrics are reproduction with an aged muslin
background. This looks like a tough quilt, but that couldn't be
farther from the truth. The "clamshells" are all pre-cut,
just need the edges turned and appliquéd. This is easily
done by using an interfacing and turning right side out. This
is not a hard quilt, it's just gonna take some time - but well
worth it. Moda has chosen St. Jude's Children's Hospital for the
charity. All their proceeds go to this wonderful research facility.
Kits are $180, and the quilt is 60" x 69." Let us know
if we can set one aside for you. Remember that these are limited
We've got some really great new patterns for some
holiday gift giving. Most of them are not huge, so still easily
done by Christmas.
