Looking for a Sewciopath

Hi Quilters,

With heavy hearts we have to announce that our Lewiston shop manager, Brian's health has declined rapidly and he no longer has the strength to keep working at our Lewiston shop.
He is a very loved and valued team member and we will miss his fantastic self in the quilt shop every day.
With that being said, we have to rearrange the hours at our Lewiston store temporarily- We will now only be open Tuesday and Wednesday from 10-5 until further notice.

Now onto the good news-

We need a new Sewciopath in Lewiston.
(Which is pretty much everything this says, minus the anti-social part)
We are looking for a hard working, self-motivated, energetic person with a super duper awesome personality to join our Home Grown Quilts Family. Quilting skills and knowledge of Husqvarna Viking sewing machines are something that we can and will teach- so don't feel like you are disqualified for the position if you aren't a blue ribbon winning quilter, even experts were once beginners.

Please send your resume to Jody at homegrownquilts@yahoo.com with the subject line "Resume".

Once we have a new amazing team member in place, our Lewiston Shop will return to normal business hours. Thank you so much for your continued support. We love each of you and are thankful you are part of our quilty family.

We will see you soon!
From our laps to yours,
Jody and her peeps at Home Grown Quilts

September Specials and new classes!

Hi Quilters!

Last week we hosted our first ever retreat- which was SEW MUCH FUN! We'll continue to do this every year- we hope even more of you can join us in 2017!

We have some awesome fall Husqvarna Viking  sales this month. Now is a great time to get into an Epic!

Be sure to check out all of our classes coming up.... especially the beginning quilting course. It is a fantastic course designed to help people start quilting from the very beginning nuts and bolts- but also is a great refresher course on those fine details for people who have been quilting (or who just haven't done it in years).  Tell your friends and neighbors! (The more quilters the world has, the cozier it will be)
We will see you soon!

For example, if you purchase your class pass in October 1st it is valid until April 1st. We hope this will maximize the potential of this superb offer!

Your class pass is valid for 6 months, however if you fail to show up to 2 classes you sign up for your pass is revoked and no refunds will be made.
