News to Use from RQ September 3rd
Posted by KJCB on September 03, 2020
Be sure to read through this week's BOM updates below as we have a lot of information on several of our BOM programs. We'll be posting a video to the RQ Facebook page on Saturday morning with a few of this month's blocks!
This week's Throwback Thursday Sale features panels! We have quite a selection of various sizes and styles marked down for quick sale. Panels are great for a quick project for a holiday; to cut into pillow or placemat sections; or to make door decorations for an assisted living patient. Please remember to let us know if we should ship what stock we have or contact you before processing your order. Follow this link to the "Throwback Thursday" Sale page on the RQ website for all the details! On to the news....
September Block of the Month
There is no BOM gathering at the shop this weekend; however, we will be posting a video to the RQ Facebook page on Saturday morning with a few of this month's blocks! In-store participants remember that you can pick up your September blocks during our curbside hours starting September 8th (or contact us for other arrangements). By mail participants your blocks will start shipping September 8th given the postal holiday on Monday.
My Redwork Garden & Aunt Grace Blue Ribbon: Your final package is coming in September so you can finish up your project! Remaining yardage is available for purchase on the RQ website by clicking the appropriate link above. Full kits still available of Aunt Grace Blue Ribbon.
A Trip Around the Sun (above) & Squirrelly Girl: These two programs are starting in September. A Trip Around the Sun still has availability for full kits or the BOM program. Squirrelly Girl participants need to know we are still waiting on the fabric to arrive from Moda. We will send out full kits and month 1 packages in September once the yardage arrives, but it will not be shipped on our regular time schedule. If you're a pick-up participant, please don't come for your Squirrelly Girl package until we contact you!
Hill Country Heritage: We have coordinating extra-wide backing now in stock! If you preordered, we'll include it in your September package.
Canyon Tonga: We are still on track to start this project in October. Due to how the pattern is split up, we will be changing this project from a 10-month to a 12-month BOM with a reduced monthly fee. The total cost for the quilt will not change and this does not affect full kit preorders. If you wish to switch to a full kit and pay all up front, email email@example.com and we can arrange that.
What's New at RQ
Apricot and Ash is the newest collection by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics to arrive at RQ. This group has already been a hit and we've reordered a couple pieces that are expected to be back in stock in October! Unique to Apricot and Ash are the 36" x 60" pre-printed sampler panels that are used in a few of the projects. Precuts are still available as well as a few kits in the beautiful corals, grays, and greens.
Crescendo by Amanda Murphy for Contempo has arrived this week as well. Bright colors and fun prints enhanced with a bit of pearlescence make this collection another winner from Amanda. Fat quarters and yardage are now available. Check out the newest Cotton Shots by Amanda Murphy to look for coordinating basics!
With the end of Aunt Grace's Blue Ribbon BOM, we have added the remaining Aunt Grace's Apron to the RQ website. These 30s Reproduction prints by Judie Rothermel are in your favorite bright colors and pastels. Florals, geometrics, and even the "Scottie" dog are all still available. If you missed out on the Blue Ribbon BOM, we still have full kits available!
OESD Holiday Celebration 2020
The three-month Holiday Celebration from OESD is now in full swing! This year's FREE collection for September is Holly Jolly Greeting Cards (featured above). Remember that this collection is FREE with any $79 purchase of OESD products (Isacord thread, stabilizer, design collections, etc.).
Because not all of our OESD products are on the RQ website, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to order stabilizers or design packages in order to qualify for your FREE CD. You can also schedule an appointment to shop in the store to see what all we have in stock! Don't forget that Isacord thread counts toward your total OESD purchase and all colors are available to shop on the RQ website.
