Welcome to the Sew-into-Quilts November Newsletter!
Well, it’s certainly been a crazy few weeks and months hasn’t it? A very quick change of seasons, high Winds, snow, a Blue Moon, and a rampant rumor that both quilt shops in Deer Park have closed. Once again we have had several customers coming in asking if we are closing or saying “I heard that you were/are closing or already closed”.
PLEASE LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR,
We ARE NOT Closed or Closing our Shop!!!!!
Sew-into-Quilts & Sew-Fix-it is ALIVE, WELL, OPEN and very, very grateful to our Wonderful, Supportive customers who are keeping us that way and busy.
We are open our Regular Days and Hours M-F 9-5 & Sat. 9-4
(other than the Long Holiday weekends, Since we too love our family and want to spend that time with them).
With the change in seasons and weather we do want to remind everyone that if we get a large amount of ice or snow during business hours we may close early so that we can make it home safely.
We had a delivery of glorious fabrics yesterday, Oh my! Some Christmas in the traditional colors, some yummy Blues with Silver and/or white that include geometrics, snowflakes and so much more. These are going on the self this afternoon.
There are also 11 new 108” cotton backings with new designs and colors. All of these should be in the system and ready for sale by Friday. Sorry, no flannels in this shipment, but we are trying hard to get some!
