Come Celebrate with Us!

grand openingWe are so excited about our big day TODAY – Thursday, Aug 29th. The gals have been working so hard to make everything perfect for our special day. We have a lot planned that you don’t want to miss…

Continuing with our celebration we will have all our fall, Halloween & Christmas collections 20% off. Don’t forget the 2 trunk shows in The Cottage : Martingale’s Fat Quarter Quilts & Texas Flair by Doris Rice. The 3rd trunk show will be in The Shop featuring wonderful bags from Colorado, “Totes by Sandy.” We are a featured shop in Texas to carry her patterns.

Surprise! Our local sewing machine repair man Vince, with V & L Sewing Machine Repair, will be here to sharpen your scissors for just $5 a pair in honor of our Grand Opening!

Dixie Bradbury will be giving demonstrations all day with her “Template Techniques: CATS: Cut Accurate Triangle Squares.” Several vendors will be here in the afternoon to showcase their collections: Moda, Andover, P & B, MM Fab, Wilmington, Benartex, just to name a few. You won’t want to miss the great display by our very own Nina Lafosse with the new “Quilt Across Texas” collection. She is one of our talented teachers, known as “The Bag Lady.”

Be sure to stop in The Studio to see all of the class samples, meet with the teachers & get registered for that special class. We have over 35 affordable classes for you to choose from! Walk in The Shop & fill out a little tag with your name. You may be one of the lucky winners of our numerous door prizes – you must be present to win.

Stop by The Studio & check out all our classes. Walk over to The Cottage to view the great trunk shows & grab a bite to eat! Before you leave be sure to buy that lucky ticket to win the amazing Donation Quilt from the Vereins Quilt Guild. They are $1 each or 6 for $5 – what a bargain to benefit a great cause.

We are also very excited to announce that our quilt was accepted into the Houston Quilt Show! And don’t forget the Chamber Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will be at 5:30pm.

Embracing Our New Email Service

During our recent move and transition to our new location, we realized we needed a better email management company. The way our email list used to be managed was not very effective, and some of you who had subscribed were not getting some of our emails. This was frustrating. So, over the last week we made the change.

We’re asking all of you who were on our email list previously, to be sure to check your inbox for the new confirmation email to remain on our list. If you got the email this past week and clicked the confirmation link, then you’re all set. If you did not get quilting-arrowthe confirmation email, please re-subscribe using the subscribe box on the right. If you have not subscribed, what are you waiting for? 🙂

We only send out emails about once a week, and you don’t want to miss out. Our emails include insider news about One Quilt Place, regular discounts offered only to our email list, and helpful reminder emails about upcoming classes and events. So be sure to subscribe using the subscribe box to the right.

Hope to see you soon!
