What’s going on WITH THE CORONAVIRUS QUARANTINE? IN WI & CA…
I don’t know what to say, as I do not know what to do, or how to fix it! But hopefully, the smarter people in this country will figure it out. The only thing that seems logical to me during this Coronavirus quarantine is to stay home and/or stay in a protected environment with those who choose to not venture out. We agree only to be going to work and back. We have closed the WI store, but are operating our quilting web/online site…We are here if you need anything, but if you don’t need anything at the moment, we understand that too.
Dru and the crew in CA will decide when or if to close the CA store, if you want to call and pick something up they will have it ready, or if you need it shipped they can do that as well. If you need a quilt quilted Luke will surely love to stay busy and will have your quilt done in no time. We also know there are more important things going on right now than buying quilting supplies online. Let’s pray we will be all able to bounce back from whatever this deals us.
It was all hands on deck today to get our Wool subscription boxes in the mail, yes I actually stuffed boxes!!! We do not want them in postal limbo. What if they decide to shut down our mail? So to be safe, rather than sorry, our crew got them ready and they will be going to the post office tomorrow. Not to worry, your boxes are on the way!!! We actually have only 30 boxes unsold for this round out of a 1000, so pretty soon our subscription will be closed. If you are looking for some nice little projects the wool subscription boxes are super fun and a great deal… over $100 worth of exclusive designs for only $60! You will have to call the shop in order to buy them at this time 920-722-7233, the subscription is $60. They are $82 after they have been revealed.
Let’s Stay Safe DURING THE CORONAVIRUS QUARANTINE:
As Quilters, we should be relishing the fact that they are telling us to stay home. There is so much to do. We can stay in our sewing rooms for days/weeks and be just fine with it! Let’s stitch to our hearts content and post our progress on our social media. Flood it with our beautiful sewing accomplishments. When times get tough, the tough keep stitching!!!!
Personally, I am taking this time to work on my deadlines to catch up and to be actually ahead for once. We almost have all our new quilts done for Quilt Market!!!! Here is a peek at our Spring
Quilt Market release. Redwork Gatherings, I promise a post or two to show you all the quilts on this later.
Yes, I’d be lying if I wasn’t worried about making our payroll with no sales coming in. But worrying about it is not going to help, a lot of small businesses will be in the same position. So I am just going to stitch away and hope it all works its way out. We have invested in a big quilt show coming up and a beautiful retreat in the middle of April in North Carolina.
I hope we are all able to go by then…fingers crossed….if we stay home now maybe by then it will be over…
