We are now selling Shop Hop passports!

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.  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.

The Fabric Club is Back

And EVERYONE is eligible!  For every $10 in fabric that you buy, you get a $1 off coupon.  If you are ordering online, click on the blue "Enter Coupon" link under the Subtotal in your shopping card.  That will open up a box in which you enter the coupon code (the number following the letters CPN) from your coupon.    Click Add Coupon and watch your total go down!  If you are in the shop,  no worries - the computer will keep track of it for you and you can use it when you check out.  

Does this mean that the coupon codes are gone?  Nope!  This months code is GREEN.  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!

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 March 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.
