The remodel is done!
Thank goodness we started the remodel earlier than originally anticipated. I was still trying to get things ready just the day before Quilt Run 101 began. In fact, I still have some things in totes. Get a little done each day and eventually everything will be finished. I’m loving the new look to the shop and so far the response has been positive. We are cozy but not crowded and it’s amazing what a new coat of paint does. Now we are anxiously awaiting our new sign. New landlady and I have had some different ideas about what it should look like, so fingers crossed that we can come up with something that will fit both our design ideas. Good news is that I’ve signed a 3 year lease (with optional 2 year renewal), so I will be in my new home for awhile.
We will be holding an Open House on March 13th and 14th in celebration of the completion of our new space. I can’t wait to show off the new look and feel and all the hard work that went into it. We will be celebrating with a sale: 25% off any 3 regularly priced items (limited to stock on hand) plus enter to win a $25 in-store gift certificate (no purchase necessary). We will also be serving refreshments, of course.
In April, on the 11th, we will have our annual Easter Egg Event. When you purchase $20 or more in regularly priced merchandise, you will get to choose an egg from our Easter basket. Each egg contains an item that you will receive for free that day. Items vary from magnetic bookmarks up to a yard of fabric. Limit one per customer. It’s always fun to watch someone crack open their egg and see what’s listed inside.
Also in April, we will back at the Douglas County Fairgrounds for their annual quilt show, April 24th - 26th. I’m looking forward to vending at more shows this year and getting to see some great quilts at the same time.
Also, congratulations to Celsea A., of Woodland, Washington, who won the sewing machine in our annual Quilt Run 101 this year!
