July 8, 2017
I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe July 4th with family and friends. We had Miss Lily down at the lake (for those that don't know - that's grand-baby #4). At just 3 months - she did not stay up for the fireworks! But had a full day in open air down on the dock.
It's been really great to hear all the stories from the Bus Trip to/from the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival. Thank you all for sharing. Don't forget to hold onto your City's Edge card to receive your 10% discount on a Purchase between now and December 31st.
We have a few new things that have come into the store. Longarm and Machine Quilters: In the Sewing Studio we now carry Fil-Tec - Glide Thread and "M" Magna-Glide bobbins along with our Superior So-Fine 50. By the end of next week we will have a few cones of Micro-Quilter by Superior. It is a 100wt Poly thread - excellent for micro stitching, stitch in the ditch and machine applique - virtually invisible. Machine quilters have really enjoyed sewing with this thread - especially in bobbins - with its strong, thin qualities your bobbin just keeps going. Side note: Fil-Tec Glide is also excellent for Machine Embroidery. Also in-stock are a few quilting templates by Quilter's Rule. Come on in and check it out!
We now sell batting in full rolls. We have them listed on line but must purchase in the store. We cannot ship these at this time. We have limited "In-stock" but if you take inventory and have an upcoming need, give us a call, we can have within the week at the store.
