Summer Updates

Can you believe we are halfway though July already, I sure can't it seems summer is going by so quickly and yet to me it doesn't feel like summer outside. I love the heat and this summer has not been super warm so far.
At the shop we have a few more summer classes going on, as well as a couple of sales.
This coming Tuesday evening Esther is doing a make and take for casserole totes. These totes hold the 3 classic sizes of baking pans and are perfect for bringing to pot lucks, or giving as a shower gift. The wire frame inside keeps it nice and sturdy, and is also removable so the tote can be thrown in the wash.
On Tuesday August 6, Carrie will be doing a make and take class for the Wax and Wool Tote by Noodlehead, using cotton fabrics instead of wax and wool. This tote bag is the perfect size for throwing all your daily needs into and heading out the door. It's large enough to hold it all, but not so big that the smaller items get lost. I use mine for my wallet, water bottle, some snacks, a coffee mug, keys, cell phone, chap stick and a book. There is morning and evening slots still available. $66 gets you all the supplies as well as the pattern book which includes 2 additional patterns.

On Tuesday August 13, I will be teaching a class on the Stripology Ruler. We will make the Alberta Quilt by G.E. Designs, and learn how to cut strips and squares from yardage as well as how to trim half square triangles all using the Stripology Ruler. If you buy your supplies from our shop the class is free to take, if you wish to use fabrics from your stash there will be a $25 class fee applied. The class will run 10am-12noon and the classroom will remain open until 4pm for you to continue working on your project. There is also a mini option available for the class.

Tuesday August 20, Esther will do a class on hot to make a silicon pot holder. This class also has a morning and an evening session. This class has all the supplies included for $26.

On Wednesday August 14 from 7pm-9pm we will be hosting an open house in which we will reveal our fall classes and clubs. There is no need to register for this, just pop in and see what we are offering this fall. All of us are hard at work getting samples done for this date, so you can see exactly what the projects look like. Today Carrie and I did a lot of playing and did some fun fabric pulls for a couple of the projects I need to complete by the 14th.

As for sales,
Accuquilt is running their Christmas in July promo again this year. Select Dies are up to 40%. There is a large number of dies included in the sale, so if you have a Go Cutter or are looking into purchasing the cutter or new dies, now is definitely the time.

Also on Thursday, July 25, we will be having a Beat The Heat sale. The doors will open at 8am and the shop will be 40% off. At 9am the discount will change to 30% and at 11am it will go down to 20%. Starting at 5pm the discount will again increase to 30%, and at 7pm it will climb once more to 40%, the store will close at 8pm. The discounts cannot be combined with any other special offers or discounts.
 Have a great weekend, mine looks to be quite busy again with a trip to the grocery store, a visit to my inlaws, Sunday Worship, and Sunday Dinner at my parents, and hopefully a whole bunch of sewing in between all that.
