Our Columbia MS Walk is one week from Tomorrow ~ April 27th!

And...SWD has formed a MS Walk Team again this year and we invite you to join us too! You can check out our Team Page Here to join in and walk with us on Saturday, April 27th for the Columbia Walk MS Event, or join the team as a Virtual Walker to just support the fundraising efforts by making a donation and sharing our Team Page Link with all your friends (We also have a jar in the shop for cash or check donations).

And we're happy to announce that because of so many requests, we've re-stocked all sizes from Small to 3XL of our SWD Quilters for a Cure MS Team Shirts available for sale (while supplies last), with all profits from the shirt sales going directly to donations to the National MS Society!

Thanks again for all your support in our Team efforts last year (Quilters are the Best!) We're looking forward to another great Walk this year ~ We want to beat our fundraising goals from last year to help in any way we can to further the progress in treatments for this disease...and ultimately a cure! Please consider making a donation to the cause :)

We have a new stock of the Aurifil Box Specials!...Stop by and pick one up or purchase online Here. The box comes with one large spool of 50wt Aurifil White Cotton Thread #2024! While supplies last, purchase the box including one spool for $14.50 (msrp is $21.99), then each month for 11 months bring your box back in to the shop to add one more spool that you can purchase for $10.25 each! (Limit one spool/month at $10.25 in your choice of color from our in-stock Aurifil thread, and can not be combined with any other discounts or promotions). Note ~ Thread box can be purchased online and mailed, but monthly spool special is good in-shop only.
