What is Quilt Club?
QUILT CLUB is an exciting monthly program which we have been running (in some form or another) for as long as we've owned the store! We have a large group of enthusiastic quilters who return year after year! And we are pleased to welcome new participants each year. We love our Quilt Clubbers!
Please note, we have changed the name of this program from
"$10 Quilt" to "Quilt Club".
Our 12-month club involves TWO fun components the MONTHLY PRODUCT DEMO and the MONTHLY BLOCK! This program starts each year in September. Current year is 2022/23.
Each month, we present a short, fun demo of new items in the store, clever tools, or nifty notions that you might not know about, or panels, kits and fabrics that are new on our shelves. We are delighted to offer our Quilt Clubbers 20% off featured products (with occasional exceptions).
Each month we also provide the fabric and instructions to create one block. If you complete your "homework" each month and avoid any fines (described below in the "How It Works" section), you can complete the 12 blocks for this wonderful quilt.
We are thrilled that we have found a SUPER PATTERN for you to enjoy, and have been able to secure AMPLE FABRIC for up to 300 participants for our next QUILT CLUB. Please read all the details right to the end... (sorry, there are lots of details).
Our pattern is called "Return to Simpler Times". This fun pattern features 12 interesting pieced blocks and an optional finishing kit which will be available later in the program. You'll find the blocks to be challenging and exciting to piece but certainly doable for a confident beginner! (We're always here to assist you if you need a helping hand).
The quilt size is 72 1/2" square. It is shown here in grayscale.
We have come up with 3 fantastic colourways that are sure to please!
We have named them Urban Grey, Horizon Blue and Rosy Cheeks. They are pictured on the white background that each quilt will have. We have a picture of them for you to see but the picture and your screen do not show the true colours. Drop into the store to see them in person.
HOW IT WORKS...
MONTHLY PRODUCT DEMO & DISCOUNT EXPLAINED
Each month you will be required to attend a Product Demo session. You will have the opportunity to receive 20% off any products that we have presented. We will also feature a fun "Show and Tell Time" where you can showcase your quilting projects! We're sure there will be enough Show and Tells to last many, many sessions - just think of all those UFOs you've completed during those dreaded lockdowns! As always, we will have lots of fun prizes and giveaways during our QUILT CLUB presentation!
MONTHLY BLOCK PICKUP EXPLAINED
Each month you can pick up your Block for FREE if you: come in person, show your homework (your completed block from the previous month) and stay for the demo in the classroom. There are 10 different demo times to choose from each month. If you are unable to come to a demo that month -OR- you do not have your homework completed, you will be have to pay a penalty of $10 to get your next block and get back on track. If you need to get any additional fabric or a whole new block package, we can help you with that! It will be $5.00 for a new package or $2 to get some replacement fabric (depending on the amount of fabric you need).
Demo Session Times
Quilt Club Demos take place on the 2nd Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the month. This gets a little tricky sometimes so do pay close attention. The 2nd Wednesday does not always come before the second Thursday and so on.
2nd Wednesday 10am or 2pm or 7pm
2nd Thursday 10am or 2pm or 7pm
2nd Friday 10am or 2pm or 7pm
We ask that you wear a mask to the Demo Session. We are still erring on the side of caution and appreciation your cooperation.
A NOTE ABOUT CHOICE OF COLOURWAY
At registration, you must choose from one of three colourways - Please note that there is a limit to the number of registrations for each colourway. Be prepared with a second, or even a third choice!
A NOTE ABOUT THE OPTIONAL FINISHING KIT
You will have an opportunity to purchase a finishing kit for the Return to Simpler Times (as show in the quilt photo above). If you would like to finish your quilt in this manner, we will have finishing kits available in your colourway to purchase. There will be a limited number of finishing kits available, first come, first served. Details and pricing to follow.
A NOTE ABOUT COVID
Who knows what could happen so we will just roll with it as it comes and makes changes if and when necessary.A NOTE ABOUT INCLEMENT WEATHER
If we have bad weather on your Quilt Club day, we may cancel the meeting. If that is the case, we will convey this information by email, on Facebook and Instagram and leave a message on our answering machine. There is no penalty for missed blocks or attendance in this case. Similarly, if you have bad weather where you are, you may choose to not make the drive to attend. Tell us that you had bad weather on your day when you do make it in and there will be no penalty charged. This in on an honour system. We trust you!
