2018 - December - Are you Finished?


 

News & Updates
The Thanksgiving holiday found me in Arizona spending time with my mom and extended family. While there, my husband and I celebrated 10 years since he proposed and I pushed my envelope by participating in the Hot Chocolate 15K in Scottsdale, AZ. Got to do it with my mom who did very well! I'm thankful for quality time spent with family and all the projects you entrust to me in partnership with your own concepts and efforts. As we finish up this year of 2018, may you enjoy the season in which I like to celebrate Christ and what He has done for each of us --His gift of eternal life is free, you just need to accept it.

Shop Calendar --I'm doing better at maintaining the online calendar. Haven't seen it?  Check it out here.
Key dates the shop will be closed:
December 24-January 4

Still best to make an appointment if you would like to drop off a quilt or pick up resources to make your next quilt or sewing project. Thank you for considering options locally...I can't stock everything but have made an effort to have available commonly needed fabrics, notions, tools and have new inspiration with a variety of books and patterns. I am happy to order on your behalf when possible and will help you find something regionally if that makes the best sense.

Aurifil has extended a great deal and I'm offering it right here in Grand Coulee. $14.99 gets you a spool of white thread and a box to put it in--your own brand new box! Typically here in Grand Coulee, I offer the spools at $12.50/spool and if you buy a whole case (12 spools) at one time, you get the case for $125. This offer will let you buy them at one or more a month until you reach 10, then you'll get the last 2 (to make 12) free. You can do this as often as you'd like, but is available only to the first 30 customers or if purchased by January 6, 2019 whichever is first. Spool prices will go up to $13.35/spool on January 7, 2019, but all Thread Box Club Members will continue to be able to get spools for $12.50 until they have completed their case.  Stop in and get your numbered box or order online by January 6, 2019. We'll track your spool purchases that qualify for the thread club discount.
