Don’t forget to use your 20% off coupons you received during the Spring Fling for donating food. They are good at any store that participated in the event. Coupons are good during the entire month of May.
Also, during the month of May if you bring us a completed pillowcase for Ryan’s Cases for Smiles, we will give you a pre-cut fat quarter of your choice as a thank you and hopefully as an enticement to make a pillowcase for sick children in hospitals in the Inland Empire. They are needing pillowcases for ages 12 – 18. If you can’t sew a pillowcase but would like to help you can just purchase and donate the individual packaged fabric pillowcase kits that we have at the store. We have priced them at our cost and will include a donation card with your name. All donations and pillowcases go to The Inland Empire Chapter and the need is great, approximately 400 cases a month is what they need.
This year’s Southern California Quilt Run theme is “Let’s Eat Cake”. This event is held for two weeks on Thursday – Sunday, July 14th – 17th and July 21st – July 14th. Can you guess what Cake we are baking up at The Quilter’s Faire? Yes, we’re having a guess the cake contest. We’ll be giving out clues both in our newsletters and on Instagram and one lucky winner will take home a $50.00 store gift certificate just for guessing the exact cake we will be baking up for the event. A little disclaimer, it’s not really a cake, it’s a quilt that we are calling a cake, but you still need to guess the exact name of the cake (really a quilt). You will need to write down your guess and bring it to the store no later than Saturday, June 25th to be in the game.

Our cake is good any month of the year.
Clue no. 2:
Our cake is tolerant are you in?
