News to Use from RQ June 27th
Posted by KJCB on June 27, 2019
Summer is finally here according to the calendar (and now the thermometer!). Many of our BOM members have been in the store the past week and mentioned working on their "Christmas in July" BOM Challenge. So here's a friendly reminder to those who may have forgotten about next month's challenge: make a new Christmas in July item of any size. We are excited to see what you all will bring PLUS you'll have one project done five months early! :) On to the news...
The Firecracker Sale Returns July 1st
The Firecracker Sale is something we created several years ago for a fun summertime stock-up-your-stash type sale. It's a hot, fast, fun way for you to browse the website or shop (yes, it's available in both places) to see what kind of things we might have that you "need." Each day throughout July is a new sale, and once the day is over, there's no going back! Many questions you have will be addressed in our FAQ/Firecracker Sale page that will soon be active on the website. If you do have a question not answered, PLEASE email it. We will be very busy cutting orders and every phone call will slow us down as we whip through the store getting your first come first serve orders pulled, cut and labeled! (Yes, we have fun too!) No phone orders will be taken during this time at Firecracker Sale prices! Are you excited to see more about the fun yet? Stay tuned...
What's New at RQ
Santa and his Elves arrived at RQ yesterday (via UPS not flying reindeer...darn it). Holly Jolly Christmas by Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics features Santa and his Elves in traditional reds and greens as well as blues and black. A candy cane toss and multiple bias stripes round out this collection that is perfect for stockings and gift bags! Need a new holiday wall hanging? Take a look at the Christmas Star Kit (featured above).
Add some Good Vibes Only to your next project with this new collection by Shayla Wolf of Sassafras Lane Designs for Windham Fabrics. We have three different prints featuring the uplifting words you see above, as well as a few coordinates. Add these prints to your stash of Shayla's first collection Foundation and check out how well they play together!
How about a more traditional take on winter holiday fabrics? Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts for Andover has done just that. She is releasing two unique collections featuring reds and greens that can lead to numerous projects! Evergreen has arrived this month and Braveheart (the reds) will be released in July. At RQ you can order both now and we'll ship them together in July when Braveheart arrives. Even if you aren't looking for holiday projects, be sure to check out the cream prints in each collection that are great backgrounds. We do have a kit available that will use both collections: the Hunter Kit which will ship in July.
