| ...News and Notes |
In accordance with community efforts to combat COVID-19, our brick & mortar store is currently closed to customers, but we will still be quilting customer quilts in our queue and serving our customers remotely through website and phone orders. As we are all "Quilting in Place" to do our part to help mitigate this virus spreading around our communities, we wanted to to share with you what we are doing to support your efforts :)
First, we have started a Facebook Group called "Quilters In Place" - Join us in our new group for daily fun and inspiration with other quilters as we make the most of our mandated quilting break!
We'll also be sharing shop info and updates, and information on community sewing efforts on our regular SWD Facebook page.
We have our Full Service Website and are continuing to offer a coupon code for 15% off your online order with a minimum order of $20 or more! Just use Coupon Code QUILTINPLACE at check out to get the discount!
You can choose to have your order shipped to you, or if you're local you also opt for no-contact outdoor bin pick up. To use this option select Free Curbside pickup when you check out. Then give us a call at (410)381-0695 to tell us when you will be arriving, we will place your bagged order in a bin outside our front door for you to pick up. (This service will be available Monday – Friday.)
While the shop is closed to customers we of course have cancelled all class/club gatherings until further notice, and will keep you posted when that changes. If you are a registered for an upcoming class, club or block of the month, you will be contacted individually about re-schedule arrangements.
One of the things our team enjoys most at SWD, and I think one of our premier services is helping our customers choose fabrics and colors. We’ve been offering that service remotely as well for those who are “Quilting in Place” right now and it's been working great. If you need to supplement your stash you don't need to come into the shop ~ feel free to email us a picture of what you are trying to match to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can send you some links on our website of fabric selections that are possible options for you :)
Since this Quilt Show Season large gatherings and quilt shows have been cancelled, Handi Quilter is sponsoring a Cyber Quilt Show ~ Complete with Show Special Pricing on machine packages + Free Shipping...And we're matching all of the Show Special Pricing + Free Shipping too! Click Here for a flyer with more details, and call or email us about specials on both New Handi Quilter packages and our Shop Demo machines! Follow along all month at cyberquiltshow.com for lots of eye candy and education, tips and fun!
Finally, if you weren't able to travel to our shop during the Quilts Around the Bay Shop Hop, we now have our Oriole block, Maryland Day at the Bay wall hanging kit and Bird Quilt setting kit available online for you to purchase Here!
We remain committed to providing the best possible service and support to our community. We will keep you appraised of any changes here at the shop, but we hope that these measures will enable us to continue to serve you, and also help us all to stay safe and healthy. Make the best of your situations, and let us know if there is anything we can do to help...We will get through this together!
We truly believe there are few things that are as satisfying and soothing as creating something with needle and thread. We wish that you all stay safe and well, and can take some time to sooth yourselves with some stitching during these trying times.
Take Good Care!
~ Dawn and the SWD Team
