May 2017 Calendar

Wow, what an exciting month April has been! 
 For those who missed the Newsletter last month, Sew What Shoppe, being a Authorized Janome Dealership, is now also the Authorized Husqvarna Viking Dealer. We are extremely excited to add the Husqvarna Viking line to our inventory. Please stop by anytime and test drive any of our machines. Moreover, if you are interested in an embroidery machine, we will be more than happy to assist you in making a small project at no cost to you. If that is something you are interested in, call our Shoppe at (217)222-7458 and we will schedule an appointment for you to come in and play! Ann Pflibsen, of Simply Sewing, will continue to teach a few classes, specifically Free Motion Ruler Block of the Month and Software Club at our location located at 420 N. 24th Quincy IL. Please see the attached calendar for the dates and times. Please encourage your friends and family to like us on Facebook and to visit our website at sewwhatshoppe.com to sign up for our monthly newsletters and calendar for updates and events. We look forward to serving all of our current and new customers with a unique experience by offering both Janome and Husqvarna.  

Shavon and I made our way to Utah for Kimberbell Academy in April. Oh my GOODNESS.... if you have never been to Salt Lake City, Utah to see the mountains, I recommend that you add it to your list of trips to make someday. The snow top mountains were absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I was completely in awe! Have you ever been somewhere and suddenly realized just how tiny you are in this great BIG world? God blessed us with our talents of sewing but HE is the ultimate artist! It was an honor to meet Kim and her staff and to finally put a face to a voice over the phone. They were so much fun and an extremely talented group of people. We did a few live videos, with a few technology hiccups, and we were able to gift a $100.00 bundle from Kimberbell and a $50.00 gift card from Sew what Shoppe to one lucky live viewer. Congratulations go out to our lucky winner Denise Bockenfeld! "Sew What" does than mean you might ask???? Sew What Shoppe is the only shop in the Quincy area certified to host Kimberbell Events and we can"t wait to host our first event. We will have more details later!


With much thought and consideration, we will no longer be honoring the 20% off bags. It was a program that I willingly inherited when I purchased the store.  I have honored it for 7 months but I want to find new, fun and creative ways for us to be able to offer sales throughout the entire store. Saturday, April 29, 2017 will be the last day to use your 20% off bags.
With that said...... We are having a YARD SALE....and who doesn't love a yard sale right???? For those of you who "BREAK FOR YARD SALES" come on over!

The "Yard Sale" will last the ENTIRE month of May! Minimum cut is one yard. Additionally, we must keep our business costs in line, so to qualify for sale price you must pay with cash or check.

Whoohoo!!!! Sale prices include our wide backing and our new inventory! SHOP AWAY!
Speaking of NEW - check out our cork. It is absolutely beautiful and SEW easy to sew with.



Here is the break down for the "Yard Sale"
$3.00 off every yard- regular price at $13.99 and over
$2.00 off every yard- regular price at $11.00 - $13.98
$1.00 off every yard - regular price up to $10.99

DISCOUNT ON 1 YARD and MULTIPLE FULL YARD CUTS ONLY.


NEW: SEWCIALIZING - SHOW AND TELL!!!! I don't know about you, but I LOVE Show and Tell. It is my favorite part of quilt meetings.  We will host it one time each month and we will have Donuts, Orange Juice and Coffee available. Please bring something for show and tell and, if you do, you will receive 20% off one regular priced item purchased that day. 20% off sale cannot be combined with any other sales. Please feel free to bring a friend along, even if they do not sew! We want this to be a fun and joyful time so please bring any jokes or stories along also. You are welcome to come without a show and tell item, but won't be eligible for the 20% discount.
Saturday, May 5, 2017  10:00am - 12:00pm


We need to make room for additional inventory. We have 50% off ALL remaining ANITA GOODESIGN Embroidery Designs and 50% off ALL of our BLING designs.

So to help us move them out, we are offering an additional 10% off any regular-priced items purchased that day (including machines).
 



We are very excited to offer a new program starting in May. It is the Kimberbell "LIFE IS BETTER IN FULL BLOOM" Wall Hanging. 

To cut cost for our customers- We do NOT have it scheduled as a class. This is sewing machine applique and is NOT available for machine embroidery! It is designed as a reward program and it will be an 8-week program. To keep the program rolling and to be fair to everyone... if, by chance, you can NOT make it one week, we will issue you a ONE time pass - During the program, but you will have to catch up by the following week. 
What's in it for you.... besides a lovely wall hanging when your finished?
8 punches on your card will earn you a reward of 25% off ONE item. (excluding machines)
and ALL Completed Reward Cards will go into drawing for a 4 pc Bag Set (color your choice)
