Shop News February 17, 2017

Hello and welcome back! This is the quiltbus News and Views list, an occasional newsletter telling you about the events at the quiltbus Shop in Guilderland NY.  Be sure to bookmark http://quiltbus.com/Shop/Shop-News.htm to see the latest updates between newsletters. If you would like to receive this newsletter by E-mail, you can sign up in the green box in the left column.


Spring Challenge

If one of your goals for the New Year is to wrap up some unfinished projects, we’re here to help. The 2017 UFO Challenge began on February 1, 2017 and will run through April 29, 2017. During the first 10 days of each of those months, bring up to three UFOs to the shop and register them. Return with any or all of them completed by the 10th of the next month and for each one finished your name will be entered into a drawing. (Yes, you can enter the same UFO in all three months if you don’t finish it the previous month.)

We’ll draw a name each month and the winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to the shop. Just think, if you play for all three months you could finish up to nine projects! These UFOs may be quilts, table runners, or wall hangings. No size restrictions. To help you finish your project, we will give you 15% off batting and backing fabric if you purchase it for your UFO on the day you register.

This months winner was Mary Ellen W of Altamont! She won a $50 gift certificate for showing us her USO in February and bringing it in finished in March. I wish I had taken a picture - it was a pinwheel table topper for St Patricks Day.  You can be a winner too - just bring in your UFO between April 1 and 10 next month.

Top Off Day

Robbie Sutton, a long arm quilter and the owner of Pieceful Hollow Designs is at the shop every other Saturday from 11 - 12 starting February 18 to accept your top and review options with you.  That's Top Off Day:-))  If you can't make it on that day, you can leave it at any time and pick out a quilting design from her design book. Robbie will call you when your quilt is done, and you can pick it up here any time.
