Christmas Open House and Men's Shopping Day & Night

You are invited! And so is your Man!

• First up, for YOU, if you are a local and able to visit the shop in person, please do so on Sunday, December 19th between the hours of 12 and 5 for an Open House!

We had our first Open House last year and it was a big success: loads of fun, and a great way to unwind during the Holiday Season.

We will be having in-store specials, yummy treats, and everyone who attends will get to pick a free present!

Your present might be a free fat quarter, but it might be a free class, a gift certificate to Moonsong Creations Long Arm Quilting Services, or a $50 gift certificate to Alewives Fabrics... the only way to find out is to stop by and pick a ticket.

We would love to see you there to share some holiday cheer!

• Second up, for YOU, that same day (Sunday, December 19th), for those of you who are NOT local and able to attend the Open House in person, I will be holding a Virtual Open House right here on my blog! The Virtual Open House is a bit trickier than the "local" Open House, so I am saving the details on that for my next post. Let's just say that if you like free fabric and giveaways, you will be very pleased indeed!

• Third up, on Wednesday, December 22nd (for locals), for any and all of the SPECIAL MEN in your life, we will be holding our annual Men's Shopping Day and Night. From 10am til 8pm, any men who make a purchase in our shop, will receive free gift-wrapping, snacks to munch-on while they shop AND 20% off their entire purchase. This includes gift certificates, classes, and of course our lovely fabrics, books, patterns and notions.

And because our INTERNET CUSTOMERS need a bit more time to ensure timely arrival of their packages, Men's Shopping Day will happen for our online customers on Wednesday, December 15th.

Remember, the purchases have to be made by a man: it can be your brother, your son, your husband, whomever you would like, as long as they are of the male persuasion. It will be quite obvious which purchases are made by men at the brick-and-mortar shop, but online we will be looking for men's names on those order forms. He won't need a promotional code, just a masculine name.

The idea here is that the men in our lives may need a little help in the gift-giving department, and 20% off (which applies to gift certificates as well, of course!), plus free gift-wrapping may be just the nudge he needs. Of course, it's your job to plant the seed in his mind: just subtle-ly coax and cajole (I know you can do it!), and I'm sure he will get the point.

I think that is it for one night... let me know if you have any questions... it's 10:30 on Sunday night and I might be a little bit (okay, a lot) punchy!

I wish I was local. I do want to take the time and make it up to the shop. Online shopping is nice, but just can't beat brick and mortar, and seeing the fabric up close.
