RQ In-Store Gift Cards
If you have any RQ in-store gift cards in your possession that look like the one pictured above, you need to get to RQ before May 31st, 2018! We have switched gift card processing systems and will no longer be able to accept the above gift cards after May 31st, 2018. If you aren't ready to spend your RQ gift card yet, that's fine, we can transfer your balance on to one of the new gift cards! Help us spread the word -- if you've given an RQ gift card to a friend or family member kindly mention this bulletin to them so they can head to RQ before May 31st, 2018. This change will not effect RQ online gift cards in any way.

RQ Turns 10 Retreat @ Farmstead Inn Shipshewana
We have about 15 spots left for our RQ Turns 10 Retreat at Farmstead Inn in Shipshewana during July! You can read more information about this event on the RQ website. The excitement grows each day as our giveaways arrive from our favorite suppliers and we sort through books, patterns, notions and fabric for daily prize drawings during our retreat! Many of you that have registered have not yet joined our Facebook group. There are a lot of retreat newbies coming that can learn from the "professionals" so whatever your level, please come join us there!
*If you have paid your $25.00 to RQ, but not yet made reservations with the Farmstead Inn, please do so soon.
*The Farmstead Inn must know the names of all people in your room. People who are not registered with the Farmstead Inn will not receive breakfast or goody bags as that is what is used for the count. If you’ve added people, be sure to call and give the Farmstead Inn their names.
*If you have made room reservations at the Farmstead Inn but have not sent or called in your registration fee of $25.00 with RQ, you are NOT considered registered for the retreat! Please be sure you and ALL those in your room have registered. We are the cutoff point when the retreat is full, and if you don’t have your name in by then, you will be on a waiting list.
*We have created a Facebook Group to share information with those who are registered to attend the retreat. If you don’t have Facebook, please see if someone in your room can keep you updated. (If that doesn’t work, just let us know and we will make sure you have all pertinent information.) We thought this would be a good place to look for ride or room sharing too if you are interested in that. Please click the following link and request to join the RQ Turns 10 Retreat at Farmstead Inn Group. Remember this group is for those who have registered!

Did You Know?
Bottom Line Thread by Superior Threads is a multi-purpose thread. Bottom Line is a 60wt/2-ply polyester thread designed for applique, bobbin thread, and quilting. The lightweight yet strong thread is great in your sewing machine bobbin and creates very little lint. Use this fine thread for machine or hand applique and quilting when you want the thread to "disappear" into your project.
