News to Use from RQ October 31st
Posted by KJCB on October 31, 2019
Happy Halloween! Here in Central Indiana we're not sure which is spookier: the Halloween costumes and decorations or the weather reminding us that winter is knocking on our door! There's nothing spooky or eerie in this week's newsletter so read on to see what's happening at RQ as we welcome November to Rossville. On to the news...
November Block of the Month Meeting
This Saturday, November 2nd is our next Block of the Month Meeting. The November meeting is also a BOMB BLAST where you will be able to spend your RQ BOM Bucks on select items! Here are a few reminders about BOMB BLAST:
*Doors will open at 9:00 a.m. with a brief meeting starting at 9:15 a.m. There will NOT be any show and tell at the November meeting so that you will have more time to spend your BOM Bucks before the store opens.
*You MUST have paid the sign-up fee for a current or future BOM to enter the store at 9:00 a.m. Any past BOM members who still have BOM Bucks to spend may enter following the brief meeting (at approximately 9:45 a.m). This is strictly due to space limitations.
*You MUST bring your RQ BOM Bucks with you. We have no record of how many BOM Bucks you have earned so they must be in hand to spend them.
*Specifics on how your RQ BOM Bucks can be spent and which items qualify will be discussed during the brief meeting on Saturday.
The Snowmen Snow Globe BOM will be ending in November. Members will receive their final package and remaining yardage will be available for purchase.
Don't forget that the November Challenge is to bring items for the Rossville Food Pantry. You can still earn one more RQ BOM Buck on Saturday morning by bringing non-perishable food items to donate!
What's New at RQ
Harvest Road by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics is now in stock at RQ! This Autumn themed collection has a different color palette than we normally see from Lella Boutique, but isn't it cozy? The focus florals and coordinates are in shades of blue, green, brown, cream, and white. We will be kitting a few different patterns that you can see on the RQ website. The jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs are in stock as well if you need a "sampling" of Harvest Road!
Knitters! We have four brand new knitting themed novelty prints from Whistler Studio and Windham Fabrics. Knit N Purl features "wooly" farm animals in sweaters and knitted hats...definitely a unique print! Brightly colored yarn balls and skeins are available on a cream background to coordinate. We also have a light-colored woven texture that will go with just about anything in your stash!
Cardinals are the state bird of Indiana (and many other states) and a frequently requested novelty at RQ. This Cardinals in Winter digitally printed panel comes to us from David Textiles. The panel is approximately 44"x 35" and the cardinals themselves are quite large. We think the panel would finish beautifully with a faux wood border as if you were looking out a window into the forest!
