What's NEW at The Little Shop of Stitches?

March 6, 2017

Do you remember that feeling back when you were in college?  You put your hand in your coat pocket and found a DOLLAR!  Woo hoo!  Free money!  (Let's be honest...I still get excited when that happens!)

We are going to re-create that feeling of exhilaration and celebrate Worldwide Quilting Day with our oh-so-popular
Fun Money Sale and Auction!

We LOVE our customers, and this is just one way that we can show our appreciation of you and your decision to shop with us!

Here's how it works...

Starting TODAY, every time you make a purchase at The Little Shop, we will make a "Deposit" into your Fun Money account:

Pretax Subtotal  -->  Fun Money Deposit


Up to $30  -->  $30 Fun Money

$30.01 - $100  -->  $150 Fun Money

$100.01 and Up  -->  $300 Fun Money

We will keep the Bank Book here, so there is nothing at all for you to track.  Every transaction earns you Fun Money!  We will continue to make "Deposits" through Friday, March 17.  Then, the FUN begins!

On Saturday, March 18, you can meet with The Banker and "Withdraw" your Fun-ds to spend at The Little Shop of Stitches!  You may spend your Fun Money on specially selected SALE items all that day, or choose to attend our Silent Auction!

That's right!  This year, the auction will be a social event, in which you can mingle and munch!  On Saturday, March 18, we will open the doors at 10am.  At 11am, the Bid Sheets will go out on the tables next to each item.  Use your Fun Money to bid on those items, then enjoy some lively conversation and lovely munchies!  At 1pm, the Silent Auction will close and the highest bidder WINS!

But wait, there's more!  ;)   (Always my favorite line!)

We've made special arrangements to bring in a shipment of BERNINA 830 machines to continue our Worldwide Quilting celebration!  The machines will be here at The Little Shop on Saturday, March 18 -- ready to go home!  And we've secured extra special pricing just for YOU, along with the Spring Sale Interest-Free financing!

Click on the picture below to learn more about the BERNINA 830!

So, what will be included in our Fun Money Sale and Silent Auction?  FUN stuff, of course!   Baskets of quilty goodies, fabric, books, magazines, patterns, retired samples and MORE!  Be sure to "Like" us on Facebook to get a few sneaky peeks at what will be included!  (Remember to turn on your Notifications on your Newsfeed to get Little Shop posts.)

You've been cooped up in the house long enough!  It's time to get out -- and start earning Fun Money!

March's Quilt of the Month is "Links!"
  The quilt is 64.5 inches square, and we chose a soft green and yellow color palette for our sample.  Moda has provided two other color options below, in order to get your creative juices flowing!  For those in our QOM program, the pattern is only $1 throughout the month of March!  You must pick these up in person, and no one can sign for someone else's pattern.  You decide if you want just the pattern, or if you'd like to have the kit this month.  Not a member of our QOM program yet?  YES, you can still join in the fun!  Ask any Little Shop Staff Member for all the details!  And, we have a special for those early birds who registered in January!  You have the option of getting this month's kit (with the fabrics we used in our sample) for 20% off!  The regular price of the Links kit is $89.99, but your early bird discount makes it only $71.99!


Little Shop Retreats are SEW much fun!  Join us for a Day Retreat on a Wednesday for 10 hours of quilting, eating, and laughing.  Day Retreats are $40, and include lunch, a tasty afternoon snack, dinner, and a surprise gift!  Our Mini Retreats are just as much fun, but with half the calories!  (No dinner is included with the Mini Retreats.)  Make plans to spend the day at The Little Shop with your Quilty Friends!  Call 937-384-0804 to register!
