DID YOU KNOW?
LOYALTY DOES HAVE ITS...!
A QP gift card works on our online shop as well as in the store! So take a look in your wallet and junk drawer. A GOOD look.
If you find a Quilty Pleasures gift card, bring it in or call us with the number. If it has a balance on it, you can spend it like cash on whatever we sell, wherever we sell it. Fabric, notions, tune-ups ... . It's literally found money!
Those cards aren't doing any good sitting at home, so redeem them now and buy some fun!
Implementing an on-line shopping platform has necessitated a number of changes around here. One of the biggest is our new POS system, which won't affect you too much in your day-to-day shopping with us, but it does change how our loyalty programme works.
NANA CAUGHT A BUG!
In a nutshell, the new system gives you a $10 coupon good for 90 days for every $250 you spend in the store. Still pretty rewarding!
Here's a timely message, written by one of our very own customers for all of the young children in our lives.
Laurelle Callaghan is well-known within the local quilting community. She's also a retired chaplain in the Canadian Armed Forces, so she has ample experience in helping families with difficult situations.
It's no surprise, then, that she turned her own experience with COVID-19 into a picture book that helps kids and their parents deal with the realities of life during this pandemic. Told from the viewpoint of a six-year-old, the story's serious content is blended with a healthy dose of humour, making it perfect for encouraging family discussions about a troubling topic.
ANOTHER SHOPPING OPTION!
The book is only $20 (shipping and handling included) and may be ordered directly from Laurelle
Maybe you remember meeting Barry Jenkins, our TrendTex sales rep, at our Christmas open house last year. He's pretty memorable, but we know you were really blown away by all the fabrics he showed you.
Well, we aren't in a position to order every fabric TrendTex sells, but now you have an exciting opportunity to shop directly from their warehouse! This will give you access to a huge inventory of Moda, Benartex, RJR, Hoffman California, Stof, Michael Miller, and Lewis & Irene collections!
Here's how it works: Starting on June 22,
1/ Visit shop.trendtexfabrics.com
to, well, shop;
2/ At checkout, enter the code QUI102
This gives us a portion of the sale, keeping your dollars local;
3/Shipping is $15 for all orders under $149, and free for orders of $149 and over.
This is a unique programme and we're excited to be a part of it, so please give it a go. It's always disappointing for us when a customer requests a fabric we don't have, but this gives you another way to buy exactly what you want.
It's easy, it's fun, and it's fabric. All good!
MORE GOOD NEWS! TLC FOR YOUR MACHINE!
We know that all of you are sewing full-tilt, making masks and other PPE for family and friends. And we also know that a lot of your machines are having trouble keeping up.
We're now accepting machines for servicing!
You may drop off your machine during our regular in-store shopping hours. Please include the power cord and foot control, the zigzag foot, and the bobbin case with bobbin. Keep all extra feet and accessories, thread, manuals, etc (ie, anything we can lose!) safe at home with you. And please wipe off the machine with a Lysol wipe, or similar, and we'll return the favour when your servicing is completed.
WHAT IS MYSEWNET?
mySewnet™ Cloud is, in essence, a service where you save and access your personal files, stitches and designs over the Internet instead of on your computer’s hard drive. Your files in mySewnet™ Cloud can be saved and accessed from different synched devices such as your mySewnet™- enabled machine, your PC or Mac, your smart phone, or your tablet via mySewnet™ apps. And it lets you do so many things!
By visiting the mySewnet™Portal, you can access your own profile information, user account settings, machine information, subscription options and online cloud file management. It is easily accessible from anywhere with an Internet connection, including mac computers. Sign up for SewNotice, an app that lets you monitor your embroidery stitch-out progress via notifications on your smart phone. Get notifications when you're out of thread, ready to change colors, and when your design is done. Or take a look at ImageStitch, an app that allows you to take a photo and quickly create an embroidery design with it. Save the design to your mySewnet™ Account to be synchronized to your machine.
Even if you don't have an embroidery machine, you'll love CreatorCue, an app that allows you to view step by step tutorials for various sewing techniques on your tablet or smart phone. It also includes instructions for projects and handy information about stabilizers, with more content being added all the time.
