Heavenly Treasures will be closed Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day and July 4 for Independence Day. Hope you all have some wonderful family times planned for these holidays.
SHOP HOP IS APRIL 18-28! By the time you receive this, the Nebraska shop hop may be a thing of the past for 2013 and we’ll be in recovery mode. Shop hops are so fun and the adrenalin just keeps us going for those 12 days. Thanks for participating, if you did. Hope you enjoyed our Nebraska fabric we offered this year. Our next shop hop is the Run For the Border hop with 3 shops in Kansas and 4 in Nebraska. That one will take place October 10-14. We will be closed on Sunday, the 13th. More details to come on this one in the next newsletter.
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A QUILTER’S CRUISE? We have secured 15 cabins to do a Hawaiian island cruise Jan 9, 2014. We will fly to Honolulu and board the ship on Jan 11. There are no days at sea to sew so we will be visiting fabric shops on the islands to satisfy our quilting fix. It is so much fun and who could beat the weather there in January? If you haven’t gotten a brochure, let me know and I can send one to you. We’d like the $500 deposit per person to the travel agency by July 1 so we can get our plans seriously established. Aloha!
The quilt club for 2013 will usually meet at 1:30 on the 2nd Wednesday. The May meeting will be May 8 and June will be on the 12th. I will be gone on the second Wed of July so we will have a meeting on July 3 or you can pick up your instructions anytime during the month. Our project we started at the beginning of 2013 is a 13 block quilt top set on point with a light, medium and dark fabric of your choice. There is a $10 fee for the patterns and you will choose and purchase the fabric that you would like to use. This is an interesting approach for this quilt and I have enjoyed seeing this method used. Come check out the picture and see some of the blocks I have been able to complete so far. You could join us anytime and just catch up to where we are on your own schedule. It’s a great time for fellowship with other quilters of varied skill levels and get some treats to eat as well. Bring in your show and tell items and enjoy some little perks to being part of the Heavenly Treasures Quilt Club.
The rumors have grown about my selling my store and moving. I would sell Heavenly Treasures if someone would like to continue this dream I started. I am not moving. Until that would come to pass, I would like to be out of the store more so you may see some new faces. If you are interested in a morning or two and Saturdays working here, put together a resume and bring it in to me so we can talk.
NEW FABRICS: We have gotten 20 bolts of new 108” wide backings in recently. We really find a niche in having such a great selection of these wide backings that save us all money and time. Check out our new ones and see if we can make your finishing process easier.
NEW SAMPLES: We have all new samples hanging in the store that we changed before shop hop. We try to do this twice a year before our shop hops. Many of them we have made kits so you can create one like our sample easily and economically.
SALE: We will have an announced sale of all of our fleece 30% off the week before Memorial Day. From May 20 to 25 fleece and minkee fabrics will be discounted to make more room for expansion for our wide backings. Plan ahead for making tied blankets for gifts for Christmas, babies, or just a new throw for a picnic. Remember those minkee infinity scarves make great gifts, too. Just ask us for a demo for this quick ten minute project. Don’t forget that we offer quick sales sometimes to our email customers only so make sure we have your email address so you can be included in those sales, too. Watch for one in July!
We will suspend classes for the summer. If you have an interest in a certain class or want to teach, let me know as we set up the fall calendar. If you have a group that would like to use our classroom for a day, give us a call and we’ll see if we can work it out. We have 6 machines for a daytime retreat.
I am getting a program to make a holiday quilt for later this year! I’m going to try something new this fall and set up a 4 meeting class to make a holiday quilt put out by Timeless Treasures. We will meet four times and sew the quilt that begins with a panel that is cut and blocks made to put with the word pieces to make a beautiful Christmas quilt. I’ll let you know more details on this in the next newsletter. I will also have some kits available for those who don’t want to sew it together with a class. If you are interested, you might let me know since my classroom limit is 8 machines available.
June 29 is a 5th Saturday. Bring those shop hop bags or cards in to get 20% off of your purchases that day. Our sale items get the additional 20% off too. See you then!
WE NEED QUILTS FOR OUR MONTHLY DISPLAY – If you’d like to share one you made, received or purchased in our alter for a month, give us a call to get on the schedule.
Our normal hours are Monday through Friday 10am to 5pm and Saturday 10am to 3pm. If the weather is bad, please call first. If schools are closed, we may be closed, too.
