Our staff is split this week between doing inventory at RQ and attending Bernina University in (not-so-sunny) Jacksonville, Florida! This week's newsletter is short and sweet with a few sneak peeks of what will be coming to RQ later this year!
Don't forget! We are CLOSED in the store this week for a physical inventory. Marcia, Sally and Charlotte have called in the reinforcements and even Marcia's mom has been helping! We will reopen Tuesday, June 18th at 10:00 a.m. The RQ online store will still be "open" and we will be checking phone/email messages daily.

We're back from Spring Market in Kansas City, MO and have brought new ideas, pattterns, fabrics, notions, and more to RQ! Some are already in stock such as: "Slowpoke" the Sloth and "Diggles" the Dragon patterns from Funky Friends Factory; the newest patterns released by Carol Hopkins Designs; new machine embroidery designs from Amelie Scott; and tea toweling project patterns from Jennelle Kent to name a few. New fabrics and Block of the Month projects will be showing up on the website in the next few weeks. We shared many of the new collections/quilts coming to RQ on our Facebook Page this week, so be sure to take a look!Read More

Normally Kyla writes a welcoming paragraph here before diving into the news. This week I’d like to take a moment to recognize the life of a wonderful woman lost late last month. Esther Koble was a customer in our store from the time we first opened 11 years ago. At that time she was in her 90s. Esther was a prolific quilter, working on her art every day. As a devout member of a religion without the clutter and distraction of television or the internet, she counted over 300 quilts completed in her lifetime. Quite an accomplishment, especially when you consider the greatest majority of Esther’s quilts were hand quilted! Each of her 5 children, 11 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren and even a two year old great-great granddaughter received quilts made by Esther.Read More
