Newsletter: Christmas Planning and Quilt Market (20 Oct 2015)

October 2015 - Christmas planning and Quilt Market

As we all sweep up our leaves……and some of you across the country are shovelling snow, it is time to think about stocking up for those stocking stuffer events and to have some easy shopping packages for Christmas shoppers looking for ideas for their favourite quilters.

Lee has been busy compiling suggestions and taking photos:

SMALL STOCKING STUFFER ITEMS

Screen wipes, pens and Alex Anderson playing cards (C & T)

Glass head pins, stitch ripper, Thread cutter pendant, 3m extra long tape measure (Bohin France)

Bobbin holder (Superior Threads)

Many of these items are available as counter display units. Check out the website for details and pricing.

 

NOTION PACKAGE DEALS! You can purchase one or 100……by purchasing all together, there is a discount over purchasing items individually.  We are also happy to adjust and customize packages to suit the needs of your shop.

OTHER GREAT IDEAS!

          

Books are perfect for browsing and getting new ideas……we personally love Angela Walters’ Shape by Shape book……lots of great ideas for both domestic and longarm quilting designs.

And Ricky Tims’ Christmas CD’s – perfect for playing in the shop or great for selling to customers – if you haven’t heard them, you are in for a pleasant surprise.

Gail is off to Quilt Market in Houston this coming weekend.  If you are going to market as well and see something you would like to see us carry and/or want to meet for a coffee, don’t hesitate to text Gail at 519-614-1116. 

Also at market – don’t forget to include Studio 180 Design in your Schoolhouse schedule -----Deb Tucker and Studio 180 Tools are the hottest thing in the quilting world right now….sure to be a hit in your shop!!!
