Saturday Sampler Club
Second Saturday of every month!
This is what you have been waiting for! The chance to make 12 quilt blocks for only $5! Here’s the deal – Come pick up your first block on Saturday, July 8th and pay only $5. This is for the fabric and the pattern for two quilt blocks!! The following month, on the Second Saturday, bring in your finished block and show it to one of our staff, and receive that month’s block for free! For example, come into the shoppe on Saturday, July 8th. Pay $5 for your kit. Come into the shoppe on the Second Saturday of August (the 12th), with your finished block from July and receive August’s kit for free! If you can’t make it to the shoppe on that day, no problem, come when it’s convenient for you and you may purchase the kit for $5. A friend can’t bring your block for you, you MUST pick it up in person.
Notice something different in this quilt – the setting includes 6 different 24″ blocks. A free pattern will be given every other month for this block. Kits will also be available for purchase.
THREE colorways will be offered. Pictured is Batik, the also available is a more traditional (think civil war/Kansas Troubles) kit. The third choice we are calling Sarah’s Choice! A fun, modern grouping. Feel free to do more than one – but you are only eligible for one free kit per month. However, at $5 per kit, it’s still a bargain!
Stay tuned for more info! Sign up if you are interested to give us an idea of how many kits to prepare.
