Holiday Hours and Events

Hi Quilters!

Before we get into the fun of the newsletter... we'll do some business first.
Home Grown Quilts will be closing on December 24th at 2pm and closed for business on Christmas Day and New Years Day.
See... that wasn't too bad, right?
Ohh... to make it less painful, all of your last minute purchases will be 20% off today (Excluding gift cards and machines, which are on their own amazing sales.)

We have some super fun events happening around here that are coming up..

The First Event:

Our Annual New Years Day Bunco Party!!!!
The actual quilt shop will be closed for business.... but we're going to get down to business rollin' dice and kickin' bum. This event is open to the public- all are welcome to attend!  Beginners to Professional players welcome.
Details: Party starts at the Grangeville shop location at 1pm. It is a potluck so bring a yummy treat to share. (Games are so much more fun with food.. right?)

Second fun event:

We're bringing it back! Our annual UFO (Un-finished Objects) Challenge.  This is for BOTH of our store locations!.
In January/February/March we are giving you the chance to FINISH some of your projects that are just sitting in the corner (....I'm looking at you massive king size paper pieced wedding ring quilt) begging to be finished.
It doesn't matter the stage of your object. It could be that you have just cut it out.... it could be that you just need to bind the dumb thing... we don't care.

Each of those three months bring in up to 3 UFO's no later than the 10th to register them for $1 each. Return with any or all of them completed by the last day of the month and for each one finished your name will be entered into a drawing. We'll draw a name each month and the winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to the shop! Just think.... if you play for all three months you could finish up to nine projects.... and maybe win $150 to shop at Home Grown Quilts.

For quilters, UFOs may be quilts, table runners, or wall hangings or purses, etc... - no size restrictions. For knitters and crocheters, anything unfinished on the day of registration is eligible. For Cross-Stitchers/Embroidery peeps- bring anything in that is unfinished.

We will even give you another incentive: We'll give you 15% off of any supplies you might need to finish up that project you've been keeping in the naughty corner.
We  look forward to seeing what everyone brings in for thee challenge!

3rd (and last) Fun Event:

We're hosting a YARD SALE!!!

Grab your overflowing stash no longer used tools and rulers, patterns, books, etc and bring them on down to Home Grown Quilts for a super fun yard sale. This is your chance to turn the old into the new!
Here's the details: On Friday February 15th ( from 10-5) and Saturday Feb 16th (From 10-3) in We will have booths available for you to sale your wares. Your booths are free of charge, but you do need to sign up for your booth to reserve it. You do NOT need to sign up for BOTH days. You can just do one or the other.... or both... whatever fits your schedule. You need to label each of your products with the prices you want and your initials . Our customers will bring all purchases up to the front register and we will ring them up and cash them out up front.  At the end of the day you will receive a Home Grown Quilts gift card for the entire dollar amount of  products you sold! How fun is that?! You can get all the fun new things you've been having your eyes on AND dash your stash that is just hanging around with nowhere to go.


Husqvarna Viking has some amazing deals this month, which we have some of those specials posted below- but we wanted to share with you that ALL of the Husqvarna Viking machines are on sale in our store. You're going to be excited to see those awesome prices! Also- each of our shops has some cash-and-carry Singer Featherweight C 240 and Emerald 116 and Emerald 118 perfect for someone to find under the Christmas tree.....or to purchase with your Christmas money :D


Don't forget after you finish working your machine for hours and hours getting all of your projects finished for this holiday season, bring it on in to Roy for a good cleaning.
A clean machine is a happy (and hard working) machine.


We've got a fun new block of the month quilt!! We have 5 kits left !
A Thangles Buck-a-Block Program

Grab a Starter Kit (includes the pattern and all the Thangles you need to complete this project) and then each month you will purchase your fabric kit for $10 a month.  This is a 5 month program. Each month has 10 simple quilt blocks for you to put together.

*Fun side note: Breezi got her start in quilting using the Thangles Buck-a-Block programs. It is a fantastic way to spread out the cost of making a quilt, plus they are quick, easy, and not overwhelming!


Home Grown Quilts offers in-house scissor sharpening!!

Doug Hoogland is ready to get your scissors in peak performance. Drop by your scissors at either of our Home Grown Quilts locations and we'll get those done for you.
