| ...News and Notes
...As I turn my calendar today, first I have to start by saying, What Happened to July?!
We've had a lot of fun in July (I personally had a birthday, vacation & anniversary, so it was pretty epic), but now it's on to August and we have some great things happening this month at Spring Water Designs!
We're still Enjoying the Journey with Row by Row! We've been keeping up with row kits and have plenty available for our Regular row, and our Row by Row Jr projects as well. And, while we've given out several Jr Ribbons, we still haven't had a winner here yet at SWD for the Adult Row by Row contest! So if you've been collecting rows, and you thought it was too late for the contest, get to sewing ~ you could still come in and claim our prize with your finished Row Quilt!
Row collecting ends on September 5th, and you have until October 31st to win any unclaimed prizes for finished quilts :)
The Get It Done UFO Challenge Number for August is #10! And hot summer days are just right for staying inside and finishing up projects. And if you didn't finish your #6 project from July, we're extending that one into August too (mainly because I was bad and forgot to post the number on our web page before I left on vacation). So you have until August 31st to show us your #10 for August and/or your #6 for July to get in on this month's drawing.
But we did do a July Drawing for those who made it in with their UFO or their SWD Tote ~ And the July Winner is Joyce Gebhart!
We have a lot of exciting happenings this month with Sales and Events! First, Handi Quilter has it's Founder's Day Instant Savings event for up to $3500.00 off of new machine purchases! (Click on the above photo for the full flyer and details)
Plus, with any new longarm purchase from us you get SWD's full package that includes Free Training, In-home set up, 1 year subscription to our Longarm Club, Unlimited Owner Training with our monthly Owner's Boot Camp classes that you can take over and over again for Free, along with our 7 day help/support line to answer any questions you may have!
We want you to be successful and confident in your longarm purchase ~ SWD has won the HQ Way & Top 25 Retailer awards for the past two years, and our In-house Tech department has 10 years of experience working on Handi Quilter machines.
...And we're having Summer Heat Up Shop Demo Sale as well! (Our current shop demos are all under a year old and come with their full manufacturers warranty) Now thru August 22nd, we are offering to pay your sales tax for you on the purchase of any SWD Floor Model machine ~ So that's an extra 6% savings on our already reduced demo machines for all our Handi Quilter Longarm and HQ Stitch Sewing Machines! Ask us about our "Out of the Box" Demo Machine Sale when you come in for a test drive ~ Sale ends August 22nd or until we run out of floor model demo machines...whichever comes first :)
We're also very proud to be hosting a Machine Quilting Event with Jane Hauprich of Stitch by Stitch Custom Quilting as she teaches four Machine Quilting Technique Classes on August 18th and 19th! Jane will be teaching the following:
Friday, August 18th - Art, Embellishments & Special Techniques on a Longarm from 10 - 1:00 & Backgrounds, Borders & Blocks, Oh My! from 2 - 5:00
Saturday, August 19th - Straight Line to Modern Quilting from 10 - 1:00 & Start Simple, Expand to Amazing Quilting Techniques from 2 - 5:00
Our Quilting Events are always packed with information, lots of quilts to see, sales and special prices, and I'm told a few give aways this time too!
