What's New at RQ
Newly arrived at RQ is Potpourri by Laura Heine for Windham Fabrics. This beautiful collection features Laura's floral and word prints that we have seen in her prior groups. She's released two new patterns for use with Potpourri which we are kitting at RQ: Topiary and Daisy Fey.
Our newest winter holiday collection to arrive is Marches de Noel by 3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics. This group features a beautiful focal print that is supported by florals, paisleys, and stripes just to name a few. We have jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs now in stock. The stunning quilt above is "Noel" by Doug Leko of Antler Quilt Designs and is available in a kit from RQ. If you prefer smaller projects, check out Doug Leko's newest book Tabletastic which features 20 new tablerunners, many of which feature the new holiday collections.
The magnolias are blooming from Jackie Robinson this week! Accents on Magnolia is her newest collection from Benartex. Choose from cream or coral magnolias in an allover print or the beaufitul border stripe. Magnolia Stars (featured above) uses the magnolia prints as well as Jackie's coordinate to make the 56" x 68" quilt.
BERNINA Summer Sale is Heating Up!
Ready to test drive a new sewing machine or serger? Now's the time to take advantage during the BERNINA Summer Sale and see what a new machine could do for you. Already have a BERNINA? Select accessories (such as embroidery hoops, embroidery software, gripper rings, and cup clip) are 25% off MSRP too! Call the store or email email@example.com for an appointment to talk about a new machine.
As we begin reopening, we will also begin to contact those of you who purchased a new machine and have not had your classes. We will only be scheduling a couple of you at a time, to maintain social distancing standards. If you want to be sure we have you on our list, please send an emailed reminder to firstname.lastname@example.org. NOTE: Since you will be around others for an extended time period, we ask you to keep in mind the safety of them as well as yourself. If you have been in contact with anyone ill or feel symptomatic yourself, please call us to reschedule. You will need to wear a mask during your class. Thank you for your understanding.
All other classes will soon resume under similar circumstances. We appreciate your patience!
