News to Use from RQ April 26th
Posted by KJCB on April 26, 2018
We'll start off this week's newsletter with a few notes. The fabric for the Pieceful Pines BOM has arrived and we will be starting this project at the May meeting. The Mineral Matrix BOM will also start at the May meeting and full kits have already started shipping (we're waiting on a few more patterns before the last preorders ship out).
If you've been waiting on pins and needles (like me) for our second shipment of Ombre Confetti Metallic Dots by V and Co. to arrive, we received shipping notification from Moda that the fabric and jelly rolls will arrive next week! We will have ALL 20 skus, fat quarter bundles, and kits back in stock as well as a limited number of jelly rolls. If you're dreaming of confetti dots, it may be worth your while to put in an order NOW to reserve yours! On to the news...
Crazy Nine Patch Class
We have a few seats still available for this Satuday, April 28th's Crazy Nine Patch Class. Learn this fun, stack 'n whack technique that works perfectly with layer cakes or squares of most any size. Class runs from 10:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. with a short break for lunch. Grab your seat and we'll send you an email with the supply list!
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.

What's New at RQ
Wicked Hot by Timeless Treasures is our first Halloween collection to arrive for 2018. This spooky collection features all the usual "scary" themes: skulls, bats, black cats, ravens, and spiderwebs. The haunted graveyard border stripe is a great print for table runners or tote bags! If you need/want a quilt project for Halloween, we have the Plots II Kit (featured above) that uses Wicked Hot fabric, including that fun border stripe. Even Dave said he likes the prints in this collection and he claims to not like Halloween!! ;)
Check out the unique color combinations in this new group from Clothworks. French Connections by Marsha McCloskey features olive greens, raspberry pinks, dark butter creams, and black. These elegant colors are seen in the large florals, leaves, dots, and viney prints. We have yardage and fat quarters available in this collection.
Checkout this new novelty collection from Dan Morris and Quilting Treasures! Spellbound has everything you'll need to make a project for the aspiring witch or wizard in your life. Owls, dragons, potion bottles, pointy hats with wands, and a library of spellbooks are all included! Fat quarters and yardage available now at RQ.
Did You Know?
Treasure Thread by Superior Threads is a 30 wt./3-ply cotton thread designed for hand quilting (or other handwork applications). Treasure Thread has a special glaze coating that adds strength and discourages lint. This thread was designed to handle the stress put on thread during hand quilting to promote tight, smooth stitches. At RQ we carry all 25 colors available!
