News to Use from RQ January 25th
Posted by KJCB on January 25, 2018
We've started pushing the winter and holiday fabrics to storage in the classroom while making room for the brights and florals that mean spring is coming (hopefully sooner rather than later). In addition to the center aisle being dedicated to cheery fabrics, we have also created a William Morris display that features two collections reproducing the renowned artist's designs (more about that below). On to the news...
RQ Turns 10: Upcoming Events!
LAST WEEK FOR THIS MONTH'S BIRTHDAY SPECIALS!! January is Girls Night Out month at RQ to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. This month's specials include 10% off Yazzii Bags (perfect for those on the go) and 10% off Girls Night Out fabric and patterns by Terri Degenkolb of Whimsicals. These specials are available both in store and online throughout January.
The Yazzii pictured above is the Mat Board Carrier CA560 which is perfect for storing and carrying a standard size cutting mat to class or retreat. The two pockets on the front add more room for storage of cutting or sewing supplies on the go. The carrier has a sturdy fabric strap to "tote" your mat around. If you prefer a larger mat, check out the Large Mat Carrier CA570 that holds most 18" x 24" mats and long rulers. Available in a variety of colors.
Girls Night Out Mill House Retreat: ONLY THREE SPACES REMAINING!! We've rescheduled the Girls Night Out Retreat with Terri Degenkolb for February 23rd, 24th, and 25th. This will be a weekend for sewing with friends and working on projects of your choosing. Check your calendars again to see if the new date works for you and sign-up to reserve your space now!
Diva Wallet Classes: We've added a new class on Saturday, February 10th. Come learn how to make the Diva Wallet with Allison! Diva Wallet Pattern designed by Sew Many Creations. Finished size closed: 7 ½” x 4 1/2” ALL CURRENT CLASSES ARE FULL!
What's New at RQ
Those spring flowers are poking their heads out at RQ...Helen's Meadow by Helen Dardik for Clothworks has "blossomed" from the stock room. The collection features the small floral prints and feather prints in the colors shown above. Additionally, there are larger allover floral and floral viney prints in light and dark colorways. I'm thinking stack-n-whack flowers (although I still need to check the repeat:)). Grab a 13 piece fat quarter bundle to bring the "meadow" inside to your home!
All right William Morris fans. We have another brand new William Morris collection in stock! Kelmscott by Morris & Co. for FreeSpirit is now ready to decorate your living room (or sewing room shelves). There are 29 beautiful skus to choose from including a few unique prints such as polka dots and stripes. The red prints have a habit of disappearing first so don't delay if those are your favorite! We've used the free pattern from Free Spirit's website to create the Mr. Morris Kit that you see above.
Next up we have Cottontail Cottage by Bunny Hill Designs for Moda Fabrics. This sweet collection features roses, cottages, bunnies, bird nests, polka dots, and gingham plaids. In addition to yardage and fat quarters, we have charm packs, jelly rolls, layer cakes, and kits of Cottontail Cottage. Check out the two mini projects featured above: Hip & Hop (left) and Jelly Beans (right) or we have the Cottontail Cottage Kit to make a larger applique quilt. These prints are fabulous for spring, a baby's nursery, or the upcoming Easter holidays!
