Hello SLH Followers,
It is starting to look like spring out there (Or at least I am hoping that is what this sunshine and melting means)!
Spring brings all sorts of fun projects to do: outdoor pillows, summer dresses, a "build your own" umbrella, rainboot liners.. the possibilites are endless! It also brings the last day for the Springtime Savings Promotion!! So, if you are in the market for a new sewing machine, come in today to get an awesome deal on a new Bernina machine.
YO GABBA GABBA
(no this is not gibberish!)
Springtime also brings fun new fabrics (actually, every couple weeks brings new fabrics!). If you have young children in your life, you probably know about "Yo Gabba Gabba". If not, it is a childrens show with funny creatures that dance and sing! We just received an entire flannel line featuring the creatures. What a great snuggly blanket, pillow case or even pajama pants for that special kiddo in your life.
If you have kids in your life and haven't heard of Yo Gabba Gabba! check it out. It is on Nickelodeon. They even help you try to convice your kids to each their vegetables!
NAME THOSE BABIES!
And speaking of kids, since we have two more showing up in our family, Maret has decided to include all of you (even more that she already has!) in helping us to "Name Those Babies". Here is how it works: Come into the store, pick up a contest slip at the front counter. You get one entry per person. You submit your two favorite boy names and your two favorite girl names. We still do not know the sex of the babies, so we will take whatever suggestions you've got!
The winners will be choosen by August 15th or when the twins show up. The contest will close August 1st, and the winners will receive a $20 gift card to SLH.
And for those of you who are curious (and because I am a proud momma), the twins are doing great. They are healthy and right on schedule!
These are our sweet little babies!
Oliver + S Open Sew Class
And since we have babies on the brain, we will be offering a one time class featuring the Oliver + S childrens clothing patterns. You can bring any Oliver + S pattern you would like to work on. Enjoli will be there to help you through the tricky parts and to show you tricks and techniques she has learned from making these adorable patterns. If you sign up for the class, you can take advantage of the Buy 2, Get 1 Free
deal on the patterns on class day!
The class will be Sunday, April 22 from 12:00-4:00pm and only costs $30! Come on in to sign up! Click on the image below for more information.
And last but not least, SLH has some amazing new thread. You may have seen it sitting on our front counter. It is called Prescenia. It is a very thin thread that runs so smoothly through the machine and creates very little fuzz that you may wonder what is magically holding your fabric together! This thread is a quilters best friend, it was designed with us in mind. It allows you to keep your true quarter inch seam because the thread does not create any extra bulk in your seam allowance. Come on in and give it a try, you will want to buy it in every color and never go back to any other thread for your piecing.
Thank you for shopping at SLH. We look forward to seeing you in the store.
Enjoli & the Team Members at SLH
