News to Use from RQ December 5th
Posted by KJCB on December 05, 2019
Thanks to those who were able to make it out last Saturday to celebrate Shop Small Saturday with us! We appreciate our customers and wouldn't be here without you. Make sure to read through this week's newsletter. We're announcing our Holiday Hours in the Upcoming Dates below so make sure to plan accordingly. On to the news...
December Block of the Month This Saturday
This Saturday, December 7th is our final Block of the Month Meeting for 2020 with doors opening at 9:00 a.m. We will be starting two new projects this month: Cherry Lemonade (featured above) and Quilter's Inspiration Mystery. There are still openings for both quilt projects!
We'll be releasing the final packages for Amish with a Twist IV and Mrs. Miller's Apprentice on Saturday. There is still remaining yardage of the 60" wide backing that coordinates with Amish with a Twist IV here. We also have a variety of skus available from Mrs. Miller's Apprentice and those will be available in store or online here.
Tapestry News: Don't forget that if you're scheduled to receive Month 10 in December, the fabric and pattern were in your November package. You will still be charged in December; however, there will not be a packet. December shipping will be adjusted on January auto-charges where necessary, as you were charged for shipping in December. Sorry about that!!
Please don't forget to bring in your stockings and stocking stuffers for this month's BOM Challenge! We have received a variety of items early (thank you!) and look forward to being able to stuff stockings after the meeting this Saturday once all items are donated. We will be taking the stuffed stockings to our local food pantry next Tuesday so please make sure items are dropped off by Saturday, December 7th.
Featured Future Block of the Month
The Woodland Getaway Flannel BOM is now available for sign-ups! This is another project by Cindy Staub of Quilt Doodle featuring Primo Plaid Flannels and her full-color pre-printed panels. Woodland Getaway is scheduled to begin in May 2020 and will finish at approximately 56" x 68" The panels are perfect for embellishment or inserting them into the quilt as they are. Sign-up now to reserve your spot in this "getaway!"
What's New at RQ
When Eagles Soar by D.R. Laird for Northcott features a 42" square digitally printed panels of eagles flying majestically past a mountain landscape. Four coordinates include elements from nature including a digitally printed winter forest. All the pieces are used together to create the Eagles in Flight Quilt (seen above) which finishes at approximately 58" x 70"
Did you know that there are 18 NEW colors of Uncorked by Another Point of View for Windham Fabrics?! Many of these colors are brighter than the original 24 skus and help round out the beautiful palette. These printed cottons have the look of cork with a metallic gold accent. Two quilts are being kitted using the Uncorked fabrics: Galactic Quest (featured above) and Prism, a bargello pattern.
With the end of the Mrs. Miller's Apprentice BOM this month, we now have the remaining yardage available for purchase. These indigos and creams by Pam Buda are sure to be a great addtion to your 1800s Reproduction stash. If you are finishing up the BOM this month, consider ordering a backing while quantities are still available!
