October 2017 Newsletter / Calendar

October 2017 Newsletter / Calendar

  Wow, September was an extremely busy and exciting month for us as we celebrated our ONE year anniversary throughout the entire month with new specials each week. It was a blast to assist and spend time with so many of you.  Additionally, We would  like to say "THANK YOU" once again, to everyone who took the time out of their busy day / schedule to vote for Sew What Shoppe in the Herald-Whig's Readers' Choice Best of 2017 Awards in the category of Best Sewing / Quilting Store. We are thrilled and honored that you chose us! As a Thank you, we will have a 20% off coupon in the Quincy Herald Whig this Sunday, October1, 2017.
*Coupon must be present and can not be combined with any other special offers or promotions. 
Our Award / Plaque has arrived and it is our honor to share it with you.


We have flipped and moved the stores around and we invite you in to see the new look. Pictured below is our new (well, antique but new to us) Floriani Thread display and we love it!

We have a few new faces around the store and invite you in to get to know them if you do not know them already! We have the generous Ann Pflibsen who is helping us out on a temporary basis (unless we can convince her otherwise) and we have Jan who will be starting very soon. We are still looking to add more friendly faces to our family and encourage you to stop by and apply at any time. 

"Sew What" is Happening in the
Shoppe in October .......

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 or
Bagels, 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 can not 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.
