Deer Country Quilts Newsletter

 June 2021

Happy June!!!  These last few weeks have been a whirlwind.  School's out and summer break is in full swing.  We've had some teaser days where it has been warm and sunny, but there's still many chilly and rainy days (which is fine by me - that's good sewing weather!).  I have been forcing myself to work on my MANY partially-finished quilts (confession: I apparently really enjoy making quilt tops, and then I stop....maybe get the quilting done, but not the binding....) - wow! it feels good to check some off my list and have quilts I can actually use or give as gifts.
At the beginning of last year, we announced that we were switching to a computer-based rewards system instead of the paper yardage cards.  With everything that transpired last year and not many people traveling, we have continued to honor the old yardage cards for 18 months.  We will continue to honor those through August 31, 2021, but not after.  I hope this gives you all enough notice to come and visit us and use up your old rewards.  Thank you for being our faithful customers!

We are continuing to celebrate my one-year-anniversary of owning the store.  The discounts are for in-store purchases only.

June 6th - June 12th: 25% off Kits and Books
June 13th - June 19th: 25% off Seasonal fabrics and Patterns

With gratitude,

We will be closed on Sunday, July 4th, in celebration of Independence Day.
