Well, as I am about to "float west" this weekend to Calgary, I want to take time to touch base with all of you on some exciting things coming up at Watergirl Quilt Co. and to thank you all for being such an enthusiastic Crew of quilters and sewists, who are ready to jump in and try new things.
Have you ever tried machine embroidery? Well, I just did so recently and I am having so much fun creating applique in the embroidery hoop, quilting blocks and I even made a change purse all in the hoop! No sewing on the actual sewing machine.
I'm excited to announce that we are now offering a pre-order for the Kimberbell Cup of Cheer Kit which is compatible will all brands of embroidery machines.
Your kit will include the machine embroidery files on CD with instructions, all the fabric for the 44" x 60" Advent themed quilt (top fabrics, backing fabric and binding), and the embellishment kit. If you purchase these items individually, the price would be $385 but we are offering our Crew a deal at $347.95 to purchase this kit as a bundle. The great news? Expected shipping date to our shop is the end of this month!
If you have been wanting to try embroidery and do not have a machine for it, why not book to come in and try one of our bernette or Bernina embroidery machines? There are great promos on this month for these machines.
Remember Bernina fans that until the end of June, buy 2 presser feet and receive one free. We have a variety in stock and can order any presser feet that you would love to add to your "Barbie closet".
Looking for a new machine? Purchase a B770 QE or B570QE and choose a free gift! You could choose a sewing machine table by Horn, an Embroidery module or an overlocker machine! Now that's what I call a really awesome free gift! You can discover all the limited time promotions from Bernina on our website at this link. This is just one of the teasers!
Need a refresher on how to use your Bernina embroidery module? We will be offering a special refresher class at a small fee to all who pre-order the Cup of Cheer Kit. More details coming soon.
What embroidery products are you searching for that we can carry at Watergirl Quilt Co.? Send us an email with your suggestions as we slowly expand into carrying machine embroiderysupplies.
Do you have quilt tops needing to be completed? Why not sign up for a longarm certification class and come take a drive on our HandiQuilter Amara with a 20 inch throat space? Classes sell out quickly so continue to watch your newsletter for upcoming dates.
What about all of you who are already certified and have not returned yet to rent the longarm? Let's get you booked in with a quilt top and get something off that nasty WIP list. Don't be shy, we are here to support you. Call the store to sign up for your rental.
Our first ever in-person retreat scheduled for August 13-14th turned out to be a hot ticket! There is only one space left to register! Fun and friendship is guaranteed! And for sure you will do lots of sewing.
Well, Crew, that is all for now. Hoping to see you watching live this morning on our Facebook page because there were a lot of new arrivals this week.
Looking forward to meeting some of you while I am in Alberta.
Stay safe, stay hopeful and do something that makes you smile!
Michelle and the Watergirls
I cannot wait to make my Cup of Cheer Quilt, too. I have fallen in love with piecing and computerized quilting on my embroidery machine. We will all learn together.
Remember that you can find us on Facebook and Instagram @watergirlquiltco and did you know that we have a Youtube Channel ? It's in its' infancy but I just started learning how to load videos to it and that is where all of you Countdown to Christmas Box Crew will be able to watch me open mine each day. Hope you will subscribe and help us build our channel together.
