Just a month to go … The Reindeer Dash starts on Thursday, October 7th through Saturday, October 9th from 9am – 5pm. During this event all stores collect nonperishable food for local food banks and various charities. Bring your contribution for a discount coupon redeemable later this year. Think mac n cheese, tuna, soup, coffee, peanut butter, applesauce, fruit cups, juice boxes. Canned vegetables like corn, peas, and beans. Try and bring complete food not just ingredients like the infamous stewed tomatoes… If you were hungry or down on your luck, what would you like to receive? This event features the fabrics by Lewis and Irene, “Noel” . To see the fabrics and participating stores https://reindeerdashquiltrun.com/

Saturday, September 18th is National Sew a Jelly Roll Day. We thought long and hard on how we could best celebrate this day and have decided that we are going to have a jelly roll blow-out special! This has been such a different year than most and the store inventory is a little older than I would like… so 50% off all jelly rolls from now until September 18! Yep, 50% off. Redeeming loyalty cards on such a deep discount will not be honored, however, we will give you punches on your purchases to use for future non-sale items.

Last week we received over 35 pillow cases for Ryan's Cases for Smiles. We have started the next tote board aiming for 200 cases. This organization works tirelessly to supply happy pillowcases to all sick children in the Inland Empire. Covid has disrupted the pillowcase sew a thons and events so more than ever individual pillowcase donations are needed. Keep those pillowcases coming we'll accept as many as you can make.
As always, we look forward to seeing you at the store. Currently the store is open Thursday – Saturday from 9am – 3pm.
