Directions to the Country School House Quilt Shop
My shop is at the corner of 21st Ave. E. and East 5th Street. I’m in the DeSmet Agency building. They have a big sign in parking lot and my little sign is on building next to door.
Directions to the shop: (I am only 3 blocks from the Lake, so when you get to the lake, drive 3 blocks away from it and that is E. 5th St.) (1) Driving N on Hwy 2/53. When you see McDonald’s on the right & Culver’s on the left, turn left and go 3 blocks to stop sign, is E. 5th St. The DeSmet Agency building is diagonally across the street. (2) From Mn – take Blatnik Bridge and follow the Hwy 53 S. signs which will take you under the bridge and along the lake, past Perkins and Fairlawn Museum. At Culver’s, turn right and go 3 blocks to stop sign which is E. 5th St. The DeSmet Agency building is diagonally across the street. (3) Coming from the N on Hwy 35 (Tower Ave). Turn right on N 28th St. (Mall Drive) – go past mall and over railroad tracks. Turn right at the stop lights onto E. 5th St. Go 3 blocks to 21st Ave E. The DeSmet Agency building is on the right.
It’s February – shortest month of the year and it’s in winter! I’m always glad when Jan. is behind us and this Jan. was so much better than last one. February is also the month of LOVE and we are into that. Come into the shop between Feb. 11-24 and when you are done shopping and bringing your merchandise to the counter just ask us for a “kiss.” You will then draw a kiss from our bucket that has a discount from 10% – 40% on the bottom. We will take that discount off from the total of the regular priced items you bought. Did I mention that you can do this 1x each day through the whole promotion—you can!! We love our customers…
Home of the Brave – it’s not too late to enter our quilt challenge or the Moda Piece and Challenge. Come into the shop and pick up info on both of the challenges. Those of you working on Quilts of Valor who are using red, whites, and blues or even some camouflages please enter those quilts into the challenge. Our quilt show is April 24 and 25 and do we have some neat things planned that we will be bringing you up to date on each month. Also follow us on Facebook. The quilt shops who are sponsoring this Quilt
Show besides me are Hannah Johnson (she is also doing Piece and Comfort); Ashland Fabric and Quilt Co.; Thimbles in Spooner and River Edge Antique and Quilts in Hayward. We are also waiting to hear from another shop. This will be a Quilt Show you will always remember because of the stories the quilt will be telling.
One More Week Left of our “Deep Freeze” sale and then the hallway will return to normal. There are some kits left with terrific prices – stock up now. Get those backs now for quilts you will be making later – prices will never be lower.
Spring lines are coming in now and we are making samples. New coffee line is in and will make great bags, placemats and valances. The new bright batiks we got in are gorgeous and remind us of summer. Moda has a new line in and we got some new floral that is great for those large bags. We will be cutting our cute “Hoodies” for baby and toddlers this week and packaging them at only $14.95. They are terry cloth and cuddle and oh, so, soft.
Our Melody machines came in a month early…..call me and let me set up a time for you to come in and play with one. During March, the Babylock Company will be offering a $100 rebate in the form of a visa card for anyone who buys a Melody machine. There are also some rebates this month on the Crescendo and one other machine (name slips my mind right now!).
Temps are dropping again so it is a terrific time to get some sewing/quilting projects done. Remember, it is never to early to start those Christmas projects. Stay warm and keep on quilting.
