| ...News and Notes |
We wanted to share with you all the options that we have in place for you to help meet your quilting needs at this time as Maryland phases into opening. Our brick & mortar store has gone back to our regular store hours 7 days a week ~ Monday - Saturday 10:00 - 5:00 & Sunday noon - 4:00! We are open to limited numbers of customers coming into the shop at one time. To adhere to community guidelines, we have installed barriers in place to help with Social Distancing, we require that everyone wear a face mask to come into the store (Our staff wears a mask for you, and we require that our visitors wear a mask to protect our staff), and we have sanitizing and washing schedules in place.
For those who are not comfortable coming into the store, we are still serving our customers' needs through web and phone sales! You can choose to have your orders shipped right to you, or we continue to offer our no-contact outdoor bin pick up too! Pick up is available now 10:00 - 5:00 p.m. Mon. thru Sat. and on Sunday noon - 4:00 :)
We encourage everyone to stay safe and keep to what you are comfortable with ~ give us a call any time and we can help you meet your quilting needs in whatever way is best for you and your individual situation ~ We will quilt through all this together :)
Just a reminder that as a thank you for your continuing support, we are still handing out our Summer Fun Money through May 30th ~ So with each $50 or larger purchase that you make from us until May 30th, you'll receive a SWD Fun Money Coupon to use in the store in June & July! (Not available on previous purchases or on the purchase of gift cards, classes or block of the month orders)
We have more of the SWD Bias Makers! We're so proud to be a part of our quilting community! For those of you making masks and in need of a Bias Maker ~ We were put in touch with someone with a 3-D printer and had some made (Thanks Angela and Eric at 3Dream Prints!) ~ So while supplies last we are offering one free 1" Bias Maker with a $25 purchase for anyone in need! ...But when you place your order, or come in and make a purchase, please let us know you need one, we want to make sure they get into the hands of those who want it.
As for other mask making supplies we continue to add quality quilting fabrics and Batiks each week ~ our fabric shipments are still coming in! We have some Kona Black solid in (but again it's going fast!), If you are making masks for companies that require Solids and certain dark colors, we also have things like an Olive Drab Blender Batik, and check out our Mix Basics and Semi-Solid Basics for some dark colored fabric that reads solid, and we continually re-stock our Close Out Fabrics for a selection of fabrics sold at low cost...and we've been keeping that Batting stocked too with more coming in this week!
We keep running out of that elastic, and expect some more to arrive soon, so check out our FB page for that announcement! And if you're looking for Ribbon for ties instead of elastic, we have some packs of ribbon in various colors back in stock.
We currently have some completed fabric Masks available for sale in various fabric prints with all proceeds being donated to the National MS Society ...Just in case you need one ~ Thanks Beth!
We also want to remind you of our Facebook Group called "Quilters In Place" - Join us in our private FB 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 are contacting Classes and Club members on an ongoing basis as sessions are being re-scheduled. We're working hard with teachers to make sure all classes will be re-scheduled at a later date, and club memberships will be extended. We thank everyone for your patience during this time.
In the meantime Renters can still call in to book future rental dates ~ Everyone is home piecing right now, so you may want to reserve your Longarm Rental dates for (hopefully late May), June & July now! You can also purchase a pre-paid rental card now to pay for those future rental times :)
We are still doing Handi Quilter cleaning and repairs too. Call us to arrange when you'd like to drop off your machine.
...We have been still selling those Handi Quilters too! Ask us about our special pricing, and in June there is a Free Shipping offer with Zero Down/0% Financing Available...We can get you all the details!
We have a list going for customers who want us to quilt their tops for them. We continue to work through our current quilting queue and are taking more quilts in if you are willing to drop them off in our bin and finalize the quilting details through email. If you are interested in getting on our quilting list, you can email Heather at email@example.com
Current Block of the Month programs continue to be charged out each month and you can arrange to pick them up curbside, or have them shipped to you. Let us know if you have any questions on any that you are enrolled in.
We also have another fun Block of the Month program beginning in June called Woodland Getaway with it's cute cotton panel and soft flannel for tree blocks and outer borders that will finish just in time for winter :) Register now to hold your spot and to help us know how many patterns and kits to cut!
And we are registering now for Nebula! This is a Block of the Month from Jaybird Quilts using Tula Pick fabrics! Register now to secure a spot, and those who register early will receive a free Tula Swag Bag too! Click over to the website for all the details and to sign up!
If you have any questions about anything during this time, just let us know. If you call during our shop hours and our phone is busy, feel free to email us and we can get you the information you need. Or you can leave a phone message after hours and we will get back to you!
In the meantime, take good care and stay safe and well, and take solace in your stitching :)
~ Dawn & the SWD Staff
