Open House August 25, 2018 – 9:00-3:00
I have heard the school bells ring, admired my newly canned green beans in the cupboard, and watched a multitude of campers returning home – sure sign that summer is starting to slow down and fall is just around the corner. These are the signs that remind me it is time to have our 26th annual Fall Open House!! I am super excited to welcome some new teachers as well as welcome back our returning teachers.
In order to be fair to our students and teachers, we are asking for class payment to be made at the time of sign-up – with a no refund for cancellations up to two weeks prior to class. This ensures the teacher’s time and efforts will be compensated as well as giving those on the waiting list an opportunity to make arrangements to be there in case of an opening. We appreciate your support of our teachers as well as purchasing your class supplies here at the shop – this is the reason we are able to celebrate 26 years of quilting classes – Thank you!!
Open House is a time to sign up for classes, meet the teachers, see the new fabrics and notions available and of course – a SALE – Fabrics will be $1.00/off regular price; Notions, books and patterns will be 20% off regular price; Jellyrolls and Layer cakes will be $30.00/each; Charm packs will be $1.00/off; Fat Quarters $2.00 each (previously cut fat quarters only)
Mr. Reynolds from Summersville – aka The Scissor Sharpener – will be on hand to sharpen your scissors – just bring them with you and he will be sharpening as you shop!!
