August News & Mystery Monday Promotion!
Good Morning Crew!
Well it is a wet one in Eastern Ontario this morning but we love water! A great morning to stay inside and make creations with fabric!
And do we ever have fabric!
There is new fabric arriving every few days now so be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook, Instagram, web site and/or just drop into the store. Did I say drop-in? Yes that is right! Now that we have been open a few weeks and are comfortable with the necessary routine of store cleaning for Covid-19 precautions, we are able to extend and relax the store hours.
Effective Monday, August 3, 2020 our new hours are the following:
Tuesdays through Saturdays we are open in-store from 9:30 am to 4:30pm for in-store shopping.
Thursdays only: You may book an appointment or drop-in. We are offering 2 appointments all day, on the half hour. Example: 9:30 am - 10:15 am, 10:30 am to 11:15am with the last appointment being 3:30pm to 4:15pm. This leaves space for 2 drop-in customers as well. If the appointments are not booked, more drop-in customers may enter the shop.
We are offering this day of appointments becauase we have many customers who drive from far away and want to know that they will not have to wait if the store is at capacity.
Of course, you may do in-store and curb-side pickup of your online orders, Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.
So today is Mystery Monday! Can you believe it has been a whole month since our last one? Today, we have fabulous bundles of Radiance Shimmer Blender by Northcott. These luxurious fabrics either have a gold or silver speckle of metallic in them and will colour match any of your Northcott fabrics. All bundles were cut in our store. We brought these in as a one time deal. At this time, we do not intend to restock this item, so get it while it's hot!
Here is a sneak peak of what you will see on the Facebook live this morning at 9am or on the replay at your convenience.
Don't miss out! Shop online now!
