Shop News May 22, 2017

Hello and welcome back! This is the Quiltbug News and Views list, an occasional newsletter telling you about the events at the Quiltbug Shop in Guilderland NY.  Be sure to bookmark to see the latest updates between newsletters. If you would like to receive this newsletter by E-mail, you can sign up in the box at the bottom of the page.

Don't forget your Shop Hop passport!


Our local Quilters Quest Shop Hop will be held on June 1 - 10 this year, with the theme of "Quest for Color".  When you purchase a passport for $7, you will receive a Quilters Quest Pouch to start your adventure. Visit a participating shop to collect a fat quarter, a quality colored pencil and a Villa Rosa pattern at each.  Our pattern is shown to the right.  Visit all 10 shops and collect a coloring book of all 10 patterns, and a tin for your colored pencils.  You will also be eligible for one of three gift certificate packages, plus a GRAND PRIZE - a quilt retreat!  All shops will have door prizes and give-a-ways, too. Remember to bring return address stickers with you! This year all the shops will again be collecting food for the local food pantry, too.


Participating Shops are: Adirondack Quilts, Glens Falls, NY; Brookside Quiltworks, S Egremont, MA; Gloversville Sewing Center, Gloversville, NY; Gloversville Sewing Center, Saratoga NY; Joyful Quilter, Glenville, NY; KC Framing and Fabrics, Saratoga Springs, NY; Log Cabin Fabrics, Selkirk, NY; Pumpkin Patch Quilts, Lee, MA; Quiltbug, Guilderland, NY and The Yardstick, Cobleskill, NY.

This months special:


Do you sew by hand?  This months special might just be for you.  From now until the end of May, all hand needles, redwork patterns and stencils are 20% off. Not sure how to do redwork?  We have a tutorial for that: How to do Redwork.


This months discount code is MOTHER.  No only will you get 10% off your entire order, you will also earn points towards your next discount coupon on any fabric purchase.  Go ahead and try it today!  Curious about the Blowout sale?  Sale Fabrics will be $5.00 yard, but no further discounts will apply.

Did you know...

That we now sell the Accuquilt cutter and dies?  We are totally in love with this fast and accurate cutting machine.  Stop in on Saturday and either Penny or Cindy will be happy to show you how we cut the little cars for the 9th row. You might even go home with one:-))  Beep, Beep!

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.  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.  During the shop hop, she will be here June 1 and 2.

Sew Help Me!
Do you ever need help from another quilter?  Maybe figuring out how to put a block on point, or the best way to finish a binding.  Perhaps you just need a bit of inspiration or a nudge to finish that project.  Visit our new website which links to a series of articles and videos by different authors.  You will find your answer there!   Here are our latest articles:
