HOT TOWN, SUMMER AT QP!

We may be in the midst of the lazy hazy days of summer but not around QP! In spite of the plethora of outdoor activities and BBQs on our to-do lists, there’s nothing like sewing to beat the heat. Time seems to move a bit slower when July and August come around, and that’s a good thing! Try a new technique, sneak in some sewing between siestas, and enjoy the process – it’s the perfect opportunity to reflect on how wonderful quilting is.

We’ll of course be at the shop if you are looking for new fabrics and patterns for inspiration (or if you simply want to stop by and say “hi”!). Our Summer Garden of Values is now underway, with a new colour on sale each week until Labour Day (even fabrics with the tiniest drop of that week’s colour qualify!) and keep an eye on our Insta and Facebook pages to see the latest entries in the #UFOSpottedAtQuiltyPleasures challenge.

Have a safe and happy summer filled with sun, swim, and sewing!

 
Amy, Sam, and all the QP Dolls (Allison, Carrie, Diane, Janet, Kimberley, Leslie, Manon, Rowan, Sonia, and Val)

THE FINISHED OBJECTS!



















This is Beth's first entry in 2024's #ufospottedatquiltypleasures challenge!

How awesome is this Japanese Lanterns quilt? We love the fabrics she chose for the blocks, and her cherry blossom-pink background is the perfect shade to tie it all together. Seeing it really lit up our day!

A PFAFF FOR YOU!

You've got the fabric, planned your project, and are ready to quilt - but is your machine up to the task?

Visit us in-store to give them a try before you buy (no appointment necessary), plus receive a complimentary machine training with purchase with one of our knowledgeable teachers!

SIT AND SEW AT QP!

Come use our space and our tools (and escape your family, renovations or anything else you'd like to leave at home). Come alone or bring a friend. This is a great opportunity to sew-cialize with friends, both new and old! You can reserve a four-hour time slot for $15. A staff person will be assigned to help you, if needed, but there will not be a specific lesson or class being taught. You must bring your own machine (as always, we can help you carry it in), your project supplies and rotary cutters.

As an added bonus, any regularly-priced shopping you do the same day will be discounted by 10%. Please call the store to register or ask any questions you may have. 613-834-3044

There are several dates scheduled so check out our classes page for a complete list. Don't see a day that works for you? Let us know and we'll keep you in mind when we add to the schedule!

DID YOU KNOW?


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!



LOYALTY DOES HAVE ITS...!

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.

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!

*Rewards are earned on regular-priced items only. Does not include classes or sewing machines.

ANOTHER SHOPPING OPTION!

While we aren't in a position to order every fabric TrendTex sells, 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:

1/ Visit shop.trendtexfabrics.com to, well, shop;
2/ At checkout, enter the code STI020 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.
TrendTex Logo
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!

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.

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.

IT PAYS TO COMPARE!

We know that price is a big factor when shopping for quilting supplies, and it's easy to assume that big box or chain stores will always offer a better price than an independent quilt shop.

However, we recently have had several customers tell us of specific instances where our prices were equal to or better than our competitors', even after their 50% discount was applied. We appreciate knowing that people are paying attention and realizing that our prices are competitive, even though we're a small, local business.

To our watchdog customers: Thanks very much for doing the math!

DID YOU KNOW?

 
We can special-order products for you!

It happens all the time: You're reading someone's blog and they recommend a pattern, book, notion, or other item that you'd really like to have. Only trouble is, either they don't sell it or you don't want to order it from them because of the exchange rate, shipping costs, Customs issues, whatever.

Let us deal with it! We can usually order these products from our suppliers, and all of the hassles are taken care of. No fuss, no muss, and your order comes right to the store and into your hands.
