May Newsletter




It's finally warming up. 

Here at the Shop, we're getting geared up for this Summer's Row by Row Experience (Shop Hop). Last year, it was expanded to PA & this year it's expanded nationwide & even into Canada!
The rules are the same, collect the free patterns, put 8 of them together, quilt & bind it. Be the first person to bring it back to a shop & win a bundle of 25 fat quarters! If the shop's row is in your quilt, you will get a bonus prize chosen by the quilt shop.
You can only take your quilt to ONE QUILT SHOP to collect the prize
We will be requesting to hang the winning quilt in our gallery at the new shop.
Here's a link to the website so you can plan your summer vacation.

We will be having lots of sales for the next couple of months to get ready for the big move and to make room for new fabrics coming in!
May month long sales are:
25% Off Novelity fabrics
               Batik fabrics
                Blue fabrics
May 5-10, 25% Off Pillow forms, Mountain Mist Fiber Fill & Jelly Rolls. This is in addition to the month long fabric sale.
Keep an eye on the local papers & pennysavers for our weekly sales ad.
With all the renovations on the new building, we may miss sending out emails.
Like this past week. By the way, it's 25% Off Jelly Rolls, Notions, & Jar Fabrics.
I know, a bit late. Sorry. It's been nuts this week.

May 15-19, 2014, we will be closed to attend Spring Market in Pittsburgh.
I'm sure we will find even more goodies to order for you while at Spring Market.

Here's the news everybody's been waiting for....
We had our closing on our new building this past Monday.
Yes, there are sneek peek photos below.
We are planning on moving at the end of June.
We've had lots of folks volunteering themselves, husbands, sons & trucks to help us move. So, what we are going to do is, send out a newsletter for anyone who wants to help move as soon as we know the exact date.  We are going to order pizza & have drinks available for everyone on move day. More on that in a month or so.
We have lots of work to do on it before we can move.
Starting on Friday, Maryanne will be mostly at the new Shop doing the remodeling & Mary Lou will be at the current Shop. So, if your looking for one of us, now you know where to look.
Be warned, though, if you show up at the new Shop, Maryanne will likely put you to work!
The address for the new Shop will be:
131 Center St.
Sayre, PA
Center Street is located accross from Howie's Pizza on Keystone Ave (Route 199). There is an ice cream parlor on the left side of Center Street & a gated parking lot on the right side.
We will be at the top of the hill on the left. It's a huge white building & currently has a sign out front that says "Little Lambs Daycare".
Alright, now for the good stuff, photos!
the main show room
 This is the main show room. It's over 950 sq ft.

This will be the gallery & more show room
(we will be having a day & time to give this stuff away later)

The Classroom
Currently the storage room for the new flooring
Maryanne will be installing in the Showroom

That's the sneek peek photos for now.
As you can see, it's a might bigger than our current location.
Have a great weekend & we hope to see you in the Shop soon!

Keep on Stitchin'
