"Help Us Help You Sale"

We trust you all had a Merry Christmas, filled with lots of time with family and friends, and hopefully a few quilting goodies in your stocking (?)
First off, a bit of "housekeeping". We only use this email for the newsletter, so if you want to send us something, please use our email address, unless we request you to use this one. Thanks so much!
OK, back to the good stuff! We are having a "Help us help you" sale - on-going until we decide otherwise - a selected group of fabrics are marked down to $7.99! There's quite a pile back in the classroom, so come on in and check it out! We've gotten notice that cotton prices are going up significantly, so now's the time to take advantage of a really good price! So you're helping us help you by clearing out some inventory so we can order more before the prices go up.
I was hoping to have a class schedule made up for the next couple of months by now, but it hasn't happened. I do know that Viki Faber has been asked by several people to teach a beading class and she wants to do that here sometime in January. Once we get that nailed down, we'll be able to schedule other things around that. She wants to teach a beaded snowflake (sounds really cool!!) for the first class, and maybe do other more involved things after that. We have a beginner class or two in the works, and I'm planning to teach the "Purse-o-nality X Four" bag class again. Party with Patrick for January is a table runner with hearts on it - a bit of a departure from the usual wallhangings, and a bit bigger. Should be fun. That will be Tuesday, January 18th, at 5:00 pm.
We have been getting new fabrics and notions right along, so if you haven't been in for a while, stop by! We have the Dr Suess fabrics we had been waiting for, some really cute Girlie Girl baby flannels, and some new notions, books, and patterns are here, or will be soon!
I am quite sure there is something I am forgetting, but I want to get this email off, so you're all aware of the sale! There may be another email coming your way soon. Meanwhile, the sooner you come in, the better the selection! AND.... we WILL be open til 9:00 on New Years Eve! Some of us don't have anything exciting going on, so what better thing to do than get together with friends and quilt?!? We will be closed on Sat Jan 1st, though.
And if you've been having thoughts of a new HandiQuilter rolling around in you're head, now's the time to get one! We're doing a 10% off MSRP sale all of December, and if you're serious, we could extend that another week for you. Handi Quilter has financing too, so you don't have to come up with the whole thing at once. If you don't have money or space for a big machine, they have a new version of their sitdown machine called the Sweet Sixteen - very affordable! Come in and talk to us!
Thank you all for your continued loyalty and business throughout 2010. We appreciate every one of you!
