March has already blown in and gifted us with another abundant amount of snow and now the rain is here. Ugh…We are so ready for Spring as I’m sure you are as well. So, to brighten up your month we want to let you know a little bit about what’s going on around here!
We are super proud! We have a new look when you walk in the door - our new checkout stand/area. You’ll have to come and see what a difference it makes. And, by the end of the March, we’ll have a coffee bar (which is already in progress.) Plan a day trip (Spring Break) – we’d love to show you around!
So, with that said, we have a lot of other NEW things just in too! We have in stock Several Brand New Fabric Collections! If you’d like to see some of them you can go to our Facebook page and view our newer videos. While you are watching pay close attention to the design wall directly behind the girls. It has one of the new collections displayed. It is the Wilmington Prints – New Farmstead. Isn’t it just gorgeous?!
We also have in a new basic collection by Windom called Terrain that is just as stunning. Then we have Riley Blake’s collection which is also introduced and explained on the Facebook video.
***This is a reminder for next month. April is the beginning of our Block Buster Quilt Block of the Month by Heartland Heritage. You can also view this on our Facebook page on March 26th and April 2nd. The awesome thing about this quilt is you can either use new fabric or scrap! Who couldn’t use up a few scraps? Right?! Well, probably the better question to ask would be, "Who couldn’t use some new fabrics!" :)
We are also gathering up everything to start holding classes on Saturdays – so stay tuned and we’ll let you know what we came up with and the difficulty level for each class. (I.e. beginner, intermediate, advanced, pro.) And, if you have any ideas for classes, please submit them.
I want to introduce you to another one of our employees, Amy. Amy has sewn "forever," especially when her girls were younger. She picked it back up in 1997 when she started quilting. Her true joy of working at Prairie Flower Craft is the people; both co-workers and customers. “The staff is nice, informative, and easy to work with.” A perk of working here, in her eyes, is seeing all the new fabric when it first comes in along with the handling and cutting.
Amy loves being stretched to learn new sewing techniques. Recently, she mastered applique and practiced it on potholders. Her example is currently on display in the store and also on February 24th post on our Facebook page. Check it out and while you're on Facebook, please "like," comment and share. If you get a chance come in and listen to her tips on how you can do this project and others that are similar. She is usually here on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
