News to Use from RQ November 30th
Posted by KJCB on November 30, 2017
In case you haven't heard, we've had a "blizzard" of online orders and visits to the store the past couple of days because of our 2016 Christmas and winter fabrics sale. Prices are as low as $3.00/yd with minimum one yard cuts. Now hold on to your "reindeer" because we're working through those orders as quickly as Santa's elves can, but not quite as fast as same day turn around :) If you haven't taken advantage of this great opportunity yet, hop in your "sleigh" and hurry over because these prices are only guaranteed through Saturday, December 2nd. While you are in town, you can visit the Rossville Holiday Craft Show at the local high school on December 2nd from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. On to the news...
December BOM This Saturday
Our next BOM meeting is this Saturday, December 2nd with doors opening at 9:15 a.m. December brings to an end two of our more popular BOM projects: Getting to Know Hue and Forest Floor. Our remaining fabric (including the 60" backing for GTKH) from these two programs will be available on Saturday to BOM members while supplies last. If you missed out on the beautiful Forest Floor, we have added full kits to the website and have four available! Order yours now to reserve the fabric and we'll ship it out as soon as the patterns arrive.
This month's challenge is to bring stockings and/or stocking stuffers to be donated to our local food pantry. Stocking stuffers can be any small items (not food or candy) such as toys; socks, mittens, gloves; hygiene products (toothpaste, lip balm, etc); books; art supplies to name a few ideas. We make stockings for a variety of ages depending on "stuffers" received. We can't wait to fill those socks up!
January is right around the corner and with it will come new BOM programs including Bristle Creek Farmhouse (seen above). Marcia has a few of the first month's blocks stitched up so you can stop in RQ and see the fabrics in person! Space is still available to sign-up now. We've also added additional spots to the Floral Menagerie BOM and have one more spot in the Quilter's Sweet 16: Mystery Quilt BOM.
RQ Turns 10: Upcoming Events!
December will be Make and Take month at RQ and we will have three featured projects including: a fabric bowl/soup cozy, a corn bag warmer, and a pillow cover. Come in during the specified time and make a complete project for only $5! More details available on the RQ Calendar. Photo above is example of the 14" pillow cover that will be made in the last week of December (fabric kits will vary).
Fabric Bowl: December 5th, 7th, or 9th. This fabric bowl/cozy is easy to make and works for anything from Accessory holder on your sewing table to Soup cozy for those hot bowls of warmed up deliciousness this season!
Corn Bag Warmer: December 12th, 14th, or 16th. Not just for sore muscles, use your corn bag warmer to warm your toes on those cold sheets. Or place it in the bottom of your bread/roll basket. Cover is removable, please wash after warming toes before putting in bread basket. :)
Pillow Cover: December 19th, 21st, or 23rd. This super quick pillow cover can be resized with just a little simple math to fit on any pillow you have. You'll go cover crazy making different covers for every week! Ok, at least for every season!
Don't forget that throughout our entire 10th anniversary year you can purchase 10 of any one item and receive the 11th FREE! For example buy 10 fat quarters and receive one of equal or lesser value FREE. This special is only available in store.
What's New at RQ
Essence of Pearl by The Kanvas Studio is a beautiful new collection with an emphasis on flowers, leaves, and dragonflys. Touched with pearlescene these prints shimmer! Choose from the purple and sage colorway or stick strictly to neutrals depending on your own palette. We have the entire collection in yardage and fat quarters as well as 10" square packs by colorway. The Shimmer and Stripes Kit is also available in either the purple/sage or neutral color.
Atelier de France by French General for Moda Fabrics has arrived at RQ. Remember we told you a few weeks ago that French General is celebrating their 20th Anniversary this year? Well, the quilt featured above is the Atelier de France Celebrations Sampler Quilt in honor of their anniversary! We are waiting on our kits to arrive (only two more remaining!) as well as the jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs; however, the yardage is now in stock. There are two other kits available if the sampler isn't for you: Joie de Vivre and La Vie en Rose.
