News to Use from RQ June 4th
Posted by KJCB on June 04, 2020
With the beginning of June, we are starting a new online sale to clear out our remaining 2019 Winter and Holiday yardage! We know that you all love a sale and we always hear that people want to start their holiday projects earlier...so here's your chance. Follow the link here or above to find the collections that are included. This is an online ONLY sale; however, you can order online and pickup curbside if you choose.
This week's TBT collection is Valley by Sheri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics. This group features earth tones with nature themes and quantities are limited on most of the bolts so order early. Follow this link to the "Throwback Thursday" Sale page on the RQ website for all the details! On to the news....
Shopping In-Store by Appointment Continues
Curbside-pick up and drop off during the specific hours of Tuesday through Friday from 11 to 2 continues until further notice for those who place orders online or over the phone. We also provide free shipping with an online order of $50.00 or more. No appointment is required for curbside, simply pull in and call us or honk and we will come to you.
We are continuing to offer in-store shopping appointments for the week of June 8th. Please call or email to reserve your shopping time. Valet Shopping will be available Tuesday through Friday, by appointment only. Each appointment will last a maximum of 30 minutes. When you arrive, you will be required to bring your own face covering that must be worn the entire duration of your appointment. If you arrive without a face covering, you may purchase one for $5.00. Your appointment may include a second person, who is subject to the same requirements. Your total appointment will still only last 30 minutes, even if two people are together. Please, at this time, no children.
1. Email the shop to request an appointment. Tell us which day and/or a time frame that works for you. DO NOT CONSIDER YOUR APPOINTMENT CONFIRMED UNTIL YOU HEAR BACK FROM US!
2. We will either email or call you back and confirm your date and time.
3. Arrive ON TIME for your appointment. If you are late, your appointment will still end at the original time.
4. Stay in your car or at the outer door, and we will come and greet you.
5. Appointments will be available beginning June 2nd and for the next two weeks. We will re-valuate weekly to determine if we will extend Valet Shopping further out or revise the restrictions.
We were happy to see customers this week returning to in store shopping! We'll be shopping by appointment for another week and then will reassess. Thank you for your continued understanding.

We will be having another Virtual BOM Meeting via Facebook Live starting at 10:00 a.m. Join us there to see the June blocks and what's new in the store since last month. We will be starting two new projects: Nature's Lodge Tonga by Wing and a Prayer (featured above) and Woodland Sampler by Amanda Murphy. Both projects still have space available to join today!
The Halloween Figs BOM participants will be receiving their final packet this month. The remaining yardage from All Hallow's Eve is will be available on the RQ website by the end of this week.
Just a reminder to in-store participants: please let us know if you'd like to have your BOMs mailed for this month. Alternatively, you can do curbside pickup Tuesday - Friday 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. after June 6th for your BOMs. No appointment needed for curbside.
What's New at RQ
The View from Here by Northcott Studio has arrived at RQ! These beautiful digital prints are great for landscaping projects or to be used to make the Panorama Kits (featured above). We have kits available in Autumn Stroll as seen above as well as Island Paradise if you're looking for a more tropical escape. The wood grain prints used in the border are a stripe which reduces your piecing!
Trick or Treat Batiks by Anthology Fabrics have just arrived this week! Vibrant oranges and purples with Halloween themes make this collection a must for your next "spooky" project. We're kitting two projects using the Trick or Treat Batiks: Cat's Path and Hester's Hat which you can see on the RQ website. Coordinating Lava Solid Batiks are also available.
BERNINA June Accessory of the Month: Pintuck!
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 email@example.com. 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!
