Hello Everyone,

Happy 4th of July!!  We hope you all have a great weekend celebrating!   As a reminder we will be closed this Friday and Saturday (the 3rd & 4th).

Where has the year gone, it’s hard to believe we are half way through the year.  So far 2020 has been a bit strange, but we are all adjusting.   It's so good to be open and have classes going again.  There are a few changes to our COVID guidelines, gloves are no longer needed (but will be available).  We still need you to sign in and ask that you use hand sanitizer before you start shopping.

Starting next week, our hours will be extended.

Sunday & Monday: Closed

Tuesday, Thursday & Friday: 11am – 5pm

Wednesday: 11am – 6pm

Saturday: 10am – 3pm

Our June raffle winners were:

Our June cash payment winner is:   Brenda Lawson

Remember, if you are not comfortable coming into the store you can do on-line shopping via our virtual shop page and you tube videos.  Or, you can schedule a private appointment during our off hours.  The private appointments can be for 30 or 60 minutes.  There will be a $10 fee for a 30-minute appointment and a $20 fee for a 60-minute appointment.  You will have the store all to yourself and our undivided attention, and best of all your fee will be taken off your purchase.

July is going to be a busy fun filled month.  Take a look at our calendar, many of the classes still have an opening or two.  Would you like to learn new ways to finish your quilt?  If so, sign-up for our Finishing Techniques class.  There are now three bag classes in July, Anything Goes, Audrey Bag and Out to Lunch.   And, we have a new teacher joining us this month,  Sue Floyd.  Welcome Sue! She will be doing a Crumb workshop, teaching you how to make this beautiful wall hanging.  Wouldn’t it look great on your front door!

For additional details of our classes visit our calendar page By the way, August is filled with classes and September is getting there.  Start planning now!

The last two weeks will be our first ever Jingle July.  What is Jingle July you ask, it’s our take on Christmas in July.   It’s not too early to start thinking about holiday projects and gifts!  There will be lots of Christmas/Holiday fabric, patterns and kits!   More information to come!

We are so proud of The Village Quilt Shoppe and look forward to sharing the dream with you.

Tip of the month

Have you ever tried to use a fabric that has been in you stash for a while.  The creases from the fold lines are so thick and hard to get smooth.   Here is what you do:

  • Turn the steam off your iron
  • Spray the fabric with water
  • Press with a dry iron

Presto - no more winkles!

Have a tip to share, send it to us, if we publish we will give you a store gift certificate.
