|It's March and we have lots to share!
Our renovation project is complete! Thank you to everyone who dropped in during our open house. We were excited for you to see the changes. If you haven't been in yet, here is a recap: The classroom has officially been converted to retail space and we've add a new section of non-quilting gift items. The result is an expanded and more open floor plan. Many items have been moved and rearranged. If you can't find what you are looking for, let us know and we will help you locate it! (We may have to look around a bit ourselves!)
We aren't ready to share dates for 2021 retreats just yet but we've started planning and we will announce dates just as soon as our venue permits bookings. We are just as anxious as all of our retreat friends to resume sewing together.
Although retreats are still on hold, we have dates to announce for several other events!

Join Carol on Friday nights where she introduces new products, announces events, and features a selection of items twice a month Live! via Facebook. If you see an item you'd like, comment sold along with the item number. Tell us if you will pick up or want your item shipped. We will invoice you after the event. It's fast and fun, usually lasting under an hour. Typically held on the first and third Fridays of the month, here are upcoming dates: Mar 5, and 19, April 2 and 16 (plus the special event on April 20!)
Quilt Rush returns!!
We are pleased to announce that the Quilt Rush Shop Hop experience will be back this spring! There are a few changes: The dates are: May 12-16, 2021 (this is one month later than usual.)
The other change is that a few long time participating shops have closed in the past year, so there will be fewer shops to visit. Save the dates and start planning your road trip! We look forward to seeing you!!
With the repurposing of our classroom space we are switching to events in lieu of classes. Save the date for a brand new Quilt Corral Exclusive Accuquilt event!

Pillow of the Month
We have one spot remaining. You may have heard previously that we sold out of the Pillow of the Month program. Here's what happened: The program required enrolling in advance in increments of 12 kits. We were going to sew one as a shop sample leaving 11 left to sell. But we sold out of the 11 kits so there isn't a need for a shop sample. Now we are going to sell the 12th kit. It's the only one left and we will not get more so if you want it, go here, right now and sign up.
