Entries in supportland (7)
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, not because I’m particularly fond of eating turkey, but because the name and therefore the meaning of it to me. It is somewhat easy to go through the day and forget to be grateful for all around me and I find it so valuable to remind myself of how grateful I need to be every single day. One of the things I’m grateful for on a very regular basis is our customers.
I did not have much experience in retail before opening the store and didn’t know really what to expect when it came to customers. But, I do really think we have the best customers possible. Thank you all for making our jobs that much more delightful. I have had some of the best conversations with some of you, shared both joys and tough news and some truly unbelievable stories as well. Now that I’m in the 10th year of the business, I have a treasure trove of stories and experiences and I love sharing these with my family and friends when I get all braggy about the store’s customers. So, thank you! Thanks for making it a joy to keep this little place going. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and enjoy some relaxation and time with loved ones.
We will be taking a couple of days off too. We’ll be closed Thursday and Friday, and back in action for our pattern sale and Supportland double merits on Saturday.
Many of you are active Supportland users and will want to make note of our new point incentive and reward incentive. Every month 15 customers can earn 25 points when they purchase 10 fat quarters.
And, now you’re able to save $10 on a purchase of $25 or more when you cash in 100 points. Woo-hoo! Yay for Supportland points.
Oh yeah, start shopping Supportlanders! Starting midnight tonight, your Supportland points magically double for 24 short hours. We just changed our reward to a free pattern of your choice for 95 points. And, to show off some of the choices…
Just two of the many women’s dress patterns we stock. The Diane Kimono Dress on the right is a new sample the talented April made up during our retreat. It looks beautiful in our cotton voile.
Two great kids’ clothing patterns to enjoy. The Anna Maria Horner one, All Set, is a great deal with five different items included! And, the Juliette, by Violette Field Threads is a new pattern for us. We picked up a number of girls’ designs from this designer, so be sure to flip through the kids’ pattern bin to see the others!
If it’s quilt making you desire, we’ve got you covered there too! New to the store, Lunden Designs’ Northern Exposure, features a basic block, looking fabulously woodsy done up with the line mentioned here. And, well, how can you resist big, bright flowers in the middle of February in Oregon?
And, a couple of bag patterns to round out the choices. We’ve carried other great designs by Jen Giddens and have been quite happy with them. In fact, April made up one of her other bags on the retreat as well, you can see it in the store. And, Miss Hannah made up the modern, chic Daily News Bag a little bit ago and it’s currently in the store too. Come check ‘em out and pick out your next project!
