Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

 May 2021

"Happy Spring!!!  I love, love, love this time of the year - blooming flowers, budding trees, chirping birds, and sunshine!  The snow is finally all gone from my yard, and my sewing ambition has returned.  I know many of you are eager to do your gardening, but I've never had a "green thumb" so I'll stick with floral fabrics instead."........

That is what I had written, but then we woke up to a snow-covered yard this morning - what my son called "third winter."  Here's hoping this third winter helps to keep the fire danger down this summer!

We are approaching my one-year-anniversary of owning the store....I can hardly believe it!  I'm so appreciative of the opportunity, and of the support I have received!!  I couldn't do this without all of our faithful customers!  To show my appreciation, we will be having weekly sales starting May 30th.  Here's how it will go:

May 30th - June 5th: 25% off Batting and Flannel
June 6th - June 12th: 25% off Kits and Books
June 13th - June 19th: 25% off Seasonal fabrics and Patterns
June 20th - June 26th: 25% off Batik yardage and Batik pre-cuts
June 27th - July 3rd: 25% off Outdoors/wildlife yardage, pre-cuts, and panels

With gratitude,

We will be closed on Sunday, May 9th, in celebration of Mother's Day.
