EVERY SEASON HAS NEW REASONS TO SEW!

It's a great time to appreciate the birds singing, the sun shining, and the comforting hum of a tuned-up sewing machine! There’s nothing like it to get those creative juices flowing and we’re excited for the possibilities: quilt a picnic blanket, make a messenger bag for road trips, or simply create new placemats to make your patio table stand out at your next BBQ. There’s no limit to what you can make to make the most of the warm weather ahead.

Now if only we could bring our entire sewing room outdoors…


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

MASKING UP, QP STYLE!

Amy in Mask
How many masks have you gotten over the last 25 months? We're guessing you've either made, collected, or purchased a few since March 2020! We know we have, and we're still a bit hesitant to put them away for good. While we may be seen as overly cautious we've considered the opinions of both our clientele and staff and have decided to keep our masking policy in place for the time-being.

We want everyone who visits the shop to feel safe and comfortable, especially those who are most vulnerable to illness or are living with young children who are unable to get vaccinated. Quilting and sewing has been an escape for many of us and we hope to continue to be your destination when you need a fabric-centric mini-break!

Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you soon!

KRAZY FOR KONFETTI!

We all know and love Konfetti, but there's even more to love with 60 new colours available both in-store and online! Each 1000m spool is made of 50wt, 3-ply double-gassed and mercerized Egyptian cotton with a gorgeously soft, clean, and lustrous finish. Low lint and free of any type of wax or coating that can cause build up in machines, this super low lint thread is perfect for quilting, piecing, and longarming.

Did you know Konfetti is also available in 2250 m cones? We regularly stock neutrals in our shop but can special order certain Konfetti colours - no minimum necessary! Call or email us to place an order.

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!

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!
TrendTex Logo
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.

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. 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.

CUDDLE QUILTS!

We continue to collect cuddle quilts for the Montfort. 


If you've never made one before, a word of explanation: These are small baby quilts that are placed in the neonatal incubators and bassinets, so the size is restricted to between 22" x 22" and 24" x 24". Their small size also makes them perfect for testing block patterns, busting your stash, and practicing free-motion quilting.

Keeping in mind the intended recipients are newborns, please aim for cute and cheerful, using only 100% cotton or flannel in the top and backing, and 100% cotton thread for the construction and quilting. Cuddle quilts are typically sent home with the babies who use them, so there is a constant demand for them.

Thanks very much. Your donations will be gratefully appreciated!

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.

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!
