July at the Calico Cow

Hello everyone!
Well, we have a ton of new fabric in the shop, and to celebrate not only that, but summer solstice, and our wonderful customers' loyalty, we are having a sale this weekend - Thurs, Fri and Sat - June 19th, 20th, and 21st!

We'll be selling all fabric on bolts at 20% off, (1 yard minimum cuts) and everything else (books, notions, fat quarters, etc, etc.) at 10% off. This won't apply to consignment items of course, but we will apply it to our $3.99 bin! Discounts cannot be combined, and there will probably be other exceptions I haven't thought of - just be sure and ask if you're not sure about something. I

f you've signed up for the summer parka class the end of the month, but haven't paid yet, make sure you pay soon, or your spot might be taken by someone with cash in hand. If you're still interested but haven't signed up, there have been a couple of cancellations, so you're not too late, yet!

Our next class will be July 19th - a bag class taught by Eddy. It's called the Miranda Day Bag, and she's made a couple of samples to hang in our window. It's a cute bag or large purse with purchased or fabric handles. Other than that, we are all busy with our own summer projects, so it's hard to find time for classes.

We hope to find time for a class or two in August, after the Deltana fair (which we hope you will all take part in, and exhibit something in - perfect or not).

Oh, yes, I almost forgot! The 2008 Great Alaska Shop Hop is on it's way! Each shop will have a cute little house (or quilt shop) block with their version of northern lights in the background. There are at least three versions of settings for the blocks, holding up to 25 blocks, depending on how many shops participate. Sorry it took so long to get it going, but we are excited to be able to offer it - hopefully by next week.

We hope you all have a great solstice, and summer in general. Enjoy every minute of it, and that of course will include quilting!
