News to Use from RQ March 19th
Posted by KJCB on March 19, 2020
By now you should have received our first newsletter of the week or read on our Facebook page that we have closed RQ to instore shopping through at least March 31st. A HUGE thank you to those customers who have reached out to us via email and phone to let us know that you plan to continue supporting our small business while we all adjust to our current situation! We want to support you in your creative endeavors as well. Please email email@example.com or call us at 765.379.2900 and leave a message if you need assistance shopping online at RQ or need an item we carry that is not listed on our website. Post what you are working on or tell us about it on our Instagram (rossvillequiltsindiana) or Facebook (facebook/rossvillequilts) using the #rqview.
Marcia's Notes: I want to put a shout out to our machine technician, Duane. He is perhaps our most important member (as he keeps us all sewing!) and I forgot to list him in my Tuesday newsletter! I started a #Coronaclosed tag today to keep you updated on what is going on. It might just be my projects, or it might be activity at the shop. It could even be a giveaway of some kind! Keep an eye out. I know Kyla has some ideas below for quick things for you to sew up while your're home. Here are a few more things to consider.
1) Hoopsisters has allowed us to email files to local customers through April. If you've thought of signing up for Moroccan Sunset, do it now! We can even assist remotely in picking out your fabrics and mailing it all to you. 2) We have a LOT of kits available online, where everything is already packed together for you. Follow this link to peruse your options. 3) Many of our BOM programs still have availability and can be mailed out NOW. You can catch up if you like, or continue with one month at a time. Some ideas are Tara, Cherry Lemonade, Night Watchman and many more.
Now back to Kyla!
This week's TBT collection is Summer Breeze V by Sentimental Studios for Moda Fabrics. Add a bit of Spring to your stash with these blue and yellow floral prints! Follow this link to the "Throwback Thursday" Sale page on the RQ website for all the details! On to the news...

Did You Know?
We've announced that we have lowered our FREE SHIPPING threshold through the end of March. All orders of $50.00 or more will ship FREE in the United States! Our automated system will not take shipping off your order unless your total hits $75; however, never fear, we will manually remove the shipping price on our side prior to charging your credit card when your order totals more than $50 (PayPal payments will receive a refund.). We're all in this together! If you are local and can wait for us to reopen, or would like curbside delivery, please note that in your comments. Especially for TBT or sale items, if you can save us paying for the shipping on those orders, every little bit helps!!
