August BOM News
Can you believe that next week is August already!?! While we are still not ready to open the store for an in person BOM meeting, we are going to try a drive-thru BOM! On Saturday, August 1st, we'll be at the store from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. for block pickup. Our plan is to have the August blocks and perhaps a few new items displayed outside so you can see what's happening at RQ. Have your July blocks finished because if you show us they're done you can earn BOM Bucks! No store admittance during the drive-thru BOM. Mark your calendars, we hope to see you there.
How About a Yard Sale?...Weather Permitting Of Course
The weather looks like it will cooperate for our "yard sale" on Friday, July 24th on the front lawn of RQ from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.! This will be an outdoor event only and in-store shopping will not be available. Please plan to wear a face mask if social distancing is not possible.

Moda Grunge News
Moda has announced they will be offering a Stitch Pink Grunge Sampler during the month of October! A free block pattern will be available every day in October to make this 64" x 76" quilt. RQ will be offering fabric kits using the Grunge pieces shown above starting in August. Keep an eye out for more details this Fall!
2020 Grunge Contest Participants: Moda has made two changes to the Grunge Contest: Individuals may now enter individually online without going through a quilt shop and winning quilts will be displayed on social media instead of at Fall Quilt Market in Houston. We will have more details mid-August in regards to voting for the RQ entry if participants still wish to enter through us.
Did You Know?
We are continuing to offer curbside pickup/drop-off during the week. For curbside pickup, please order the day before you wish to pickup your order. We will email you (at the address on your order) to let you know that your order is ready to pickup. While we try to do our best, we cannot always guarantee same day pickup as orders are processed as they are received. You can view all the details about how we're currently conducting business on the Hours page on the RQ website.
