First of all, we’d like to thank the people of Monticello for being so warm and welcoming to us! We are very appreciative of the encouraging words and positive thoughts that we’ve been receiving throughout this journey.
On that note: WE ARE NOW OPEN! Please understand that we are in a “soft opening” period and are still getting shipments of fabric every day.
We are planning a Grand Opening Event for Thursday, September 23 through Saturday, September 25, 2010 during regular business hours (check Facebook or our web site for our hours!). We plan to have some snacks, a drawing for a gift basket, 20% off fabric (excluding fat quarters), free give-a-ways, and a general good time. Be sure to come out to see us!
The two signs for our building were installed yesterday (yes, we tried to make opening day as crazy as possible!). They look BEAUTIFUL and we are so proud to have them on the building.
Main Street in Monticello is torn up as they do some water and sewage pipe repairs and replacements. We overheard yesterday that they are currently a week ahead of schedule! They are supposed to be finished and have Main Street back to normal again in October, but we’ll see! Until then, we are open, as are the other wonderful businesses on Main Street. Take a walk downtown and visit us!
That’s the end of our update for now. We would like to take this opportunity, however, to let everyone in on our plans for this blog. We’re hoping to have some guest bloggers as time goes on (teachers writing blogs corresponding to classes we have going on), more general updates about the store (current promotions, fabric lines we’re expecting, etc), and blogs about various quilting projects and techniques. So make sure you check back as we expand our blog and grow as a business.
