LAST CALL!! OLD STYLE RQ GIFT CARDS
This is the FINAL friendly reminder that if you have any remaining RQ Gift Cards that look like the card above you need to stop in RQ BEFORE May 31st. We are changing our gift card processing system and will no longer be able to support the cards shown above. Come into RQ and shop to use up your gift card or we can shift your balance to the new system. Please share this news with any friends, family, or fellow quilters who you know that may have older gift cards. The deadline is approaching: May 31st is the last day for these cards!
RQ Turns 10: May MODA Madness Month Coming to an End!
We love Moda and know that many of our customers do too! Moda was the very first manufacturer that we ordered fabric from 10 years ago when RQ opened. That was when Marcia had bolts of fabrics in nearly every room of the house, waiting for Phase 1 of the shop to open!
During the month of May, all instock Moda yardage on the bolt is 10% off instore and online! This includes prints, solids, marbles, grunges, extra wides, batiks, flannels...as long as they're produced by Moda they are 10% off.
BUT WAIT...there's more...come in ANY DAY in May with your RQ 10th Anniversary Tote Bag and we'll give you 20% off your Moda yardage purchase!! (Must have RQ Tote Bag with you to receive additional sale price, available instore only. Sale price not valid on out-of-stock or preorder items that do not arrive before May 1st.)
What's New at RQ
Come into RQ and see the newly arranged Art Gallery "Gallery" where we've put our favorite Art Gallery collections all in one spot! Splendid Fusions (above) is one of the groups brought out of the back room that is perfect for springtime. Large and small scale florals combined with a stripey vine and sketch tonal are a few of the prints in Splendid. Take a peek at the Memoir Kit that uses Splendid prints and a few solids for an interlocking look.
Heather Ross fans beware! The four cutest pieces of flannel EVER have arrived at RQ...Sugarplum Flannel from Windham Fabrics. Mice gathered in the winter snow or dancing on a cheery red background as well as peppermint candies on green or pink are now found in the flannel section. Think pillowcases, quilt backs, stuffed animals, or any other projects that you want to be warm and snuggly!
Our newest Shibori collection by Debbie Maddy for Moda Fabrics has arrived. This group is called Yuki and features a snowflake panel in three different shades. While Yuki does translate to "snow" there are only a few prints that will be reminiscent of snow and all of the prints will play nicely with Debbie Maddy's previous Shibori collections. We have two "starry" kits available using Yuki on the RQ website. Jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs should be arriving from Moda soon!
Ready, Set, Sew Sweet Tweet
We have a few kits remaining for the Sweet Tweet Quilt featured at the May BOM meeting. This baby quilt uses your favorite 60 degree triangle ruler or the included template to piece the hexagons without y-seams! The fabric kit and pattern are packaged in a canvas tote bag from Quilting Treasures. If you live locally, we are offering a class to learn about working with bias edge piecing on Friday, June 15th. This class is complimentary with the purchase of the fabric kit (when you purchase the kit please note if you are interested in the class). Limited quantities are remaining - don't delay!
